  • Then-acting FBI Director Andrew Mc Cabe on Capitol Hill

And McCabe misled other investigators in a similar fashion. However, the way McCabe did it broke the rules: his methods were "designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of Department leadership" and the disclosed information "was clearly not within the public interest exception".

McCabe was sacked March 16 by Attorney General Jeff Sessions just two days before he was to retire with a full federal pension.

Separately, the inspector general sent a letter to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee saying that the full report is expected to be issued in May.

"He LIED! LIED! LIED!" an increasingly all-capping, exclamation-pointing President Donald Trump tweeted manically of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe Friday afternoon. "He LIED! LIED! LIED!" LIED! LIED! McCabe was totally controlled by Comey - McCabe is Comey!

McCabe's lawyer, Michael Bromwich, responded with a statement, released on Twitter, in which he called the decision to fire McCabe "rushed" and "unprecedented".

The Justice Department's inspector general concluded in a newly released report that McCabe had acted to further his own interests by leaking information about the FBI's investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

McCabe denied the report's allegations in a detailed rebuttal statement.

The finding is contained in an inspector general report obtained Friday by The Associated Press.

As deputy director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe "admonished" other FBI officials over leaks he himself authorized.

"The Inspector General found not only did McCabe divulge sensitive information, he did it without the permission, authority, or knowledge of his supervisor", said House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy.

The inspector regular's office, which for larger than a yr investigated the FBI's coping with of the Clinton e mail investigation, concluded that McCabe accepted FBI officers to speak with a journalist for an October 2016 story in The Wall Avenue Journal, based mostly on The New York Events. This should be only the first of several critical IG reports on FBI misconduct under investigation by Horowitz.

The document also found that Mr. McCabe was not forthcoming with The Bureau or Congress about the media leak.

McCabe was "very unhappy" about being forced off the call, according to the report.
