A Department of Justice Inspector General’s report given Friday afternoon to Congress concluded that former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe “repeatedly” misled investigators, The New York Times reported. According to the review, McCabe did authorize his aides to leak information about internal FBI-DOJ dealings about a Clinton Foundation investigation to a Wall Street Journal reporter in October 2016, even though he previously told investigators that he did not authorize it and “did not know who did.” McCabe’s disclosure of an ongoing investigation is against the policy of the FBI and DOJ and “constituted misconduct,” according to IG Michael Horowitz. McCabe, in a statement, claimed he had “full authorization to share this information with the media” and denies he mislead investigators.
