DOJ Releases Explosive Report Proving Why Trump Was Right To Fire McCabe #DOJ #Obama

Andrew McCabe, onetime acting FBI director & lackey for the Deep State, leaked a self-serving story to the press and later lied about it to his boss and federal investigators, prompting a stunning fall from grace that ended in his firing last month, says a bombshell report released Friday by the Justice Department’s internal watchdog.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz, appointed by President Barack Obama, had been reviewing FBI and DOJ actions leading up to the 2016 presidential election. Surprisingly, he appears to be doing his job with integrity, unlike any other Obama appointee, or Obama himself.

The explosive report, handed over to Congress on Friday and obtained by Fox News, looked at a leak to The Wall Street Journal about an FBI probe of the Clinton Foundation.

The report proves that McCabe authorized the leak and then misled investigators about it, leaking in a way that did not fall under a “public interest” exception.

“[W]e concluded that McCabe’s decision to confirm the existence of the CF investigation through an anonymously sourced quote, recounting the content of a phone call with a senior department official in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of department leadership, was clearly not within the public interest exception,” the report says.

McCabe was fired from his role as FBI deputy director last month by Attorney General Jeff Sessions just days before he would have been eligible for a lifetime pension after it was determined that he misled investigators reviewing the bureau’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s email server.

Sessions said that McCabe “made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor − including under oath − on multiple occasions.”

President Trump reacted to the report Friday in a highly charged tweet saying McCabe “LIED! LIED! LIED!” Trump also used the social media platform to describe allegations of collusion between his campaign and Moscow as “all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!”

McCabe’s counsel, Michael Bromwich, in a statement to Fox News, slammed the OIG report.

“The core weakness of the OIG report is the lack of any understandable motive for his alleged wrongdoing. It is undisputed that Mr. McCabe was one of three senior FBI officials authorized to share information with the media, including on sensitive investigative matters,” he said.

“He chose to exercise that authority in October 2016, during one of the most turbulent periods in the history of the bureau, with the knowledge of Director Comey and other senior members of FBI management. His purpose was to protect the institutional reputation of the FBI against false claims, including that a sensitive investigation was being shut down for political reasons.”

McCabe and Bromwich seemingly sought to diminish the credibility of Comey, blasting his “recollection” as “not at all clear.”

“Mr. McCabe’s recollection of discussions he had with Director Comey about this issue is extremely clear; Director Comey’s recollection is, by his own acknowledgment, not at all clear. And yet two of the lack of candor allegations are based on Director Comey’s admittedly vague and uncertain recollection of those discussions. “

Later on Friday, Bromwich had another statement on McCabe’s behalf, raising the specter of further legal action: “We have for some time been actively considering filing civil lawsuits against the president and senior members of the administration that would allege wrongful termination, defamation, constitutional violations and more. The distinguished Boies Schiller law firm has recently joined us in this project. This is just the beginning.”

And, retweeting Trump’s Twitter barrage, Bromwich had this to say: “Thank you for providing even more material for the defamation suit we are actively considering filing against you and your colleagues. Stay tuned.”
