Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Jonathanturley.org: “McCabe Alleges Other DOJ Officials Leaked To Media And Questions Comey’s Value As Witness”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe responded angrily to the finding of the Inspector General report and notably attacked the recollectionof former FBI Director James Comey as a witness.  As I discussed in an earlier column, McCabe raised over a half million dollars on GoFundMe before the release of the report showing that he repeatedly made false statements to investigators as well as Comey.  The report byInspector General Michael Horowitz, appointed by President Barack Obama is blistering and says that McCabe intentionally lied to protect his image and record.  McCabe lashed out at the career officials behind the report and said Comey’s countervailing memory should not be given much credence.

The report found McCabe was the source of the leak to The Wall Street Journal about an FBI probe of the Clinton Foundation. McCabe previously said that Comey was informed of the leak and that it was routine.  The report says it was not routine and was not in “the public interest.”  Rather it found it was in McCabe’s interest.

“[W]e concluded that McCabe’s decision to confirm the existence of the CF investigation through an anonymously sourced quote, recounting the content of a phone call with a senior department official in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of department leadership, was clearly not within the public interest exception.”

Unfortunately, Trump again tweeted himself off the high road with a breathless tweet declaring McCabe “LIED! LIED! LIED!” and that all of the Russia allegations were “all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!”

However, it was the “den of thieves and lowlifes” that investigated and implicated McCabe.  Trump also said McCabe was under the control of Comey.  Yet, McCabe questions Comey’s value as witness in his statement through counsel.
