President Trump highlighted alleged wrongdoing by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe amid the DOJ’s decision to not bring charges against him.
The 2018 Inspector General report confirmed McCabe leaked information to the Wall Street Journal regarding the Clinton probe.
The president tweeted Saturday noting the Department’s report found the former FBI official misled investigators over his role in disclosures to the media and lacked candor on four separate occasions.
He also pointed out McCabe authorized leaks to advance his own personal interests and the Inspector General recommended he be fired.
This came after the DOJ informed McCabe this week its investigation into the former official is over.
