The Department of Justice's inspector general released an explosive report Friday that led to the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for his leaks to the media ahead of the 2016 election.
It was just last month when then FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was sacked just days before he was set to retire and collect his pension. McCabe's termination as Deputy FBI Director - just hours before he would have been eligible for the bureau's full retirement package - came as Trump was escalating his war on the FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.
"DOJ just issued the McCabe report - which is a total disaster", Trumptweeted. His lawyer, Michael Bromwich, says the inspector general unfairly tried to conclude its work before McCabe could retire with a full pension. The report says that McCabe "lacked candor" in a conversation with Comey when he said that he had not authorized the disclosure and didn't know who did.
In a broader swipe at the FBI and Comey, Gowdy said: "This report continues to call into question decisions made by FBI leadership in 2016 and 2017, which is why the Oversight and Judiciary Committees will continue our joint investigation into the matter". McCabe vigorously disputes its conclusions, and his team distributed a point-by-point rebuttal of the inspector general's allegations.
The article claimed McCabe had ordered the termination of the Clinton Foundation investigation due to Department of Justice pressure.
The IG also concluded that McCabe's "disclosure of the existence of an ongoing investigation in the manner described in this report violated the FBI's and the Department's media policy and constituted misconduct". He said that when he believed his answers to the inspector general were misunderstood, he went back and tried to correct them.
That may not matter to Mr Trump, who sees the executive offices of the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a "den of thieves and lowlifes" akin to a law-enforcement version of the fictional Star Wars' Mos Eisley cantina.
"The core weakness of the OIG report is the lack of any understandable motive for his alleged wrongdoing", said the statement in part.
Mr. Trump responded to Comey's book for the first time Friday, calling him a "LEAKER & LIAR" and saying he "should be prosecuted". McCabe had already alleged that his firing was politically motivated, as the president had made clear he disliked McCabe long before the FBI's former No. 2 official was sacked.
A spokesman for the inspector general's office declined to comment.
