Oh Andy, Andy, Andy.....
https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/nat...5b5b922a85

Quote:The Justice Department inspector general is preparing a damaging report on former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, alleging he was responsible for approving an improper media disclosure, two people familiar with the matter said. One of the people said McCabe will also be accused of misleading investigators about his actions.

The report is a part of Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s broad review of the FBI and Justice Department’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

During that work, inspector general investigators found that McCabe had authorized the disclosure of information to the Wall Street Journal for an October 2016 story that examined feuding inside the FBI and Justice Department around the handling of a separate investigation into Clinton’s family foundation, two people familiar with the case said.

Those probing the matter say McCabe, who stepped down in January, misled them when they initially inquired about the subject, though one person familiar with the forthcoming report said McCabe disputes that he intentionally misled investigators.

Quote:The 2016 Wall Street Journal report came just as the FBI had reopened the Clinton email investigation days before the presidential election — a matter that was separate from the Clinton Foundation case but just as fraught with politics.

The Journal’s story was notable for the level of detail it contained about internal law enforcement debates, and its revelation of specific information about an ongoing criminal case was considered by the inspector general to be particularly problematic. It presents McCabe as a complicated figure — one who at times is seen by those lower in the bureau as standing in the way of the Clinton Foundation investigation, though he also seems to stand up to Justice Department leaders.

Quote:The Journal’s story was written by Devlin Barrett, now a reporter at The Washington Post. Spokesmen for the Journal did not return an email message. Recently released text messages from an FBI agent and FBI lawyer involved in the Clinton email case show that two days before the story was published, the lawyer, Lisa Page, and the FBI’s top spokesman, Michael Kortan, were on the phone with Barrett for an extended conversation.

Page worked in the FBI general counsel’s office and with McCabe, and she was briefly detailed to Mueller’s investigation into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia to influence the 2016 election. An FBI spokeswoman declined to comment, and Page’s lawyer did not respond to messages Thursday night.

Kortan, who has since left the FBI, could not be immediately reached for comment.

Quote:While the inspector general uncovered allegations specific to McCabe during his broader look at the Clinton email case, his report on the FBI official is not likely to be the only one the work produces. Horowitz is also examining broad allegations of misconduct involving Comey, the public statement he made recommending that the case be closed without charges and his decision 11 days before the election to reveal to Congress that the FBI had resumed its work.

Horowitz has said publicly he is going to release that report in March or April.

Author doesn't think McCabe or Comey are in trouble for their crimes. FBI protects its own.

lol...the report wont trigger an FBI investigation. It will trigger a special counsel. You can't have the FBI investigate the FBI (for exactly the reasons discussed). Those guys are gone.

I have a feeling that in this political climate and the amount of scrutiny the DOJ and especially the FBI is under these days this may not be a case of "business as usual". They are well aware that there is an erosion in public trust of both institutions and this would only make that worse.

I certainly hope so, but I doubt it. Bureaucrats know how to circle the wagons and hide the pea.

Mueller’s probe is crucial to them. They MUST get rid of Trump. Everything is taken care of with that. Otherwise “they will all hang in a noose”.
