Lawmakers, legal watchdog pursue discipline for Andrew McCabe

Former FBI Director James Comey right triggered the inspector general investigation that led to the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe left Lawmakers, legal watchdog pursue discipline for Andrew McCabe

A person familiar with the matter says the referral was sent to the U.S. Attorney's office for the District of Columbia.

After leaking information to the press, McCabe attempted to cover his tracks by blaming agents at the NY and Washington DC field offices.

The referral, first reported by CNN and the Washington Post, comes almost one week after the inspector general said it had concluded that McCabe had misled investigators over a decision to break with the FBI's standard policy and inform a journalist about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation in 2016.

"The offender referral from your IG may be the appropriate decision".

Mr. Comey and Mr. McCabe are now in a virtual back-and-forth over the events while Mr. Comey is on a media blitz to promote his new book. " I believe the inspector general identified he whined although Andrew McCabe is still a superb person.

Inspector general investigators came to believe Comey, and they alleged McCabe lied on three other occasions to them and the FBI's inspection division.

Inspector Basic Michael Horowitz's report mentioned McCabe approved the leak after which misled investigators about it, leaking in a manner that didn't fall underneath the "public curiosity" exception.

"McCabe's potential criminal acts, on James Comey's watch, are further proof that both the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations were irredeemably compromised".

"W$3 e concluded that McCabe's decision to confirm the existence of the [Clinton Foundation] Investigation through an anonymously sourced quote, recounting the content of a phone call with a senior Department official in a manner created to advance his personal interests at the expense of Department leadership, was clearly not within the public interest exception", the report said. "Unfortunately, the cover-up continues, the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation are playing shell games and refusing to turn over McCabe text messages in Judicial Watch FOIA litigation".

It absolutely was ruined by means of a desire to obtain who leaked to The Wall Street Journal at October 2016 though Comey might perhaps not need intentionally launched the analysis gunning for McCabe.

Background conversations with reporters in Washington are commonplace, and McCabe had the authority, as the FBI's deputy director, to authorize them. While at the FBI, McCabe played a pivotal role in the investigation into Clinton's emails. After the inspector general report detailing Mr. McCabe's behavior was made public last week, Mr. Trump went on the offensive.

"The McCabe scenario illustrates exactly what an organization committed to the truth looks like", Comey explained. Actually, the report fails to adequately deal with the proof (together with sworn testimony) and paperwork that show that Mr. McCabe suggested Director Comey repeatedly that he was working with the Wall Avenue Journal on the tales in query previous to publication. "Neither Mr. Comey nor the OIG is infallible, and in this case neither of them has it right".

The IG referral, nonetheless, may signify a extra significant issue for McCabe.
