The Department of Justice inspector general has found that former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe violated department policy and “lacked candor” when being interviewed about whether he was a source for two news articles pertaining to the FBI in 2016.
The highly anticipated report that Attorney General Jeff Sessions used to fire McCabe last month was initiated to determine the source of leaked information published in The Wall Street Journal shortly before the U.S. presidential election. “McCabe may have lacked candor when questioned by … agents about his role in the disclosure to the WSJ,” the report said.
