Well, we can honestly say the firing of former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe just days before his retirement was a good thing that saved US taxpayers a boatload of money in pension payments, and a new report out by the Inspector General confirms that President Trump was right to fire McCabe.

According to the report, Mccabe informed then-FBI Director James Comey and investigators that he didn't know who had authorized aides to speak with a Wall Street Journal reporter in October 2016.  Those interviews were then reported in an article titled, “FBI in Internal Feud Over Hillary Clinton Probe.”

However, the report indicates that just a little over a year later, in November 2017, McCabe contradicted his previous statements while under oath and acknowledged that he was the person responsible for the authorization.

While the WSJ article explained how the Justice Department said it was difficult as to how to investigate how emails that were discovered on disgraced former Representative Anthony Weiner's laptop were related to the investigation into the use of an illegal email server by former Secretary Hillary Clinton.

Honestly, it's not that difficult to understand how they are related nor how they got there considering that Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, was Hillary's right-hand girl.

However, this is not McCabe's only corrupt behavior.  He is also known to have altered his summary of General Mike Flynn's interview Flynn resigned as national security adviser shortly after Trump took office.

In March, President Trump expressed disgust with McCabe, as well as former FBI Director James Comey.

"As the House Intelligence Committee has concluded, there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump Campaign. As many are now finding out, however, there was tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, Justice & State," Trump tweeted, reminding people of what had taken place over the past couple of years, including the unconstitutional surveillance performed against his campaign.

"The Fake News is beside themselves that McCabe was caught, called out and fired," Trump added.

"How many hundreds of thousands of dollars was given to wife’s campaign by Crooked H friend, Terry M, who was also under investigation?" he asked, pointing to How many lies? How many leaks? Comey knew it all, and much more!" Trump added, obviously pointing out the cover given by the FBI to the crimes of Hillary Clinton.

"Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI - A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!" Trump concluded.

It looks like this IG report is akin to IG reports that outed Bureau of Land Management tyrant Daniel P. Love, who orchestrated the Bundy Ranch siege, for his own corruption and crimes.

The IG report provided a summary of its investigation into McCabe and wrote:

We found that, in a conversation with then-Director Comey shortly after the WSJ article was published, McCabe lacked candor when he told Comey, or made statements that led Comey to believe, that McCabe had not authorized the disclosure and did not know who did. This conduct violated FBI Offense Code 2.5 (Lack of Candor – No Oath).

We also found that on May 9, 2017, when questioned under oath by FBI agents from INSD, McCabe lacked candor when he told the agents that he had not authorized the disclosure to the WSJ and did not know who did. This conduct violated FBI Offense Code 2.6 (Lack of Candor – Under Oath).

We further found that on July 28, 2017, when questioned under oath by the OIG in a recorded interview, McCabe lacked candor when he stated: (a) that he was not aware of Special Counsel having been authorized to speak to reporters around October 30 and (b) that, because he was not in Washington, D.C., on October 27 and 28, 2016, he was unable to say where Special Counsel was or what she was doing at that time. This conduct violated FBI Offense Code 2.6 (Lack of Candor – Under Oath).

We additionally found that on November 29, 2017, when questioned under oath by the OIG in a recorded interview during which he contradicted his prior statements by acknowledging that he had authorized the disclosure to the WSJ, McCabe lacked candor when he: (a) stated that he told Comey on October 31, 2016, that he had authorized the disclosure to the WSJ; (b) denied telling INSD agents on May 9 that he had not authorized the disclosure to the WSJ about the PADAG call; and (c) asserted that INSD’s questioning of him on May 9 about the October 30 WSJ article occurred at the end of an unrelated meeting when one of the INSD agents pulled him aside and asked him one or two questions about the article. This conduct violated FBI Offense Code 2.6 (Lack of Candor – Under Oath).

Lastly, we determined that as Deputy Director, McCabe was authorized to disclose the existence of the CF Investigation publicly if such a disclosure fell within the “public interest” exception inapplicable FBI and DOJ policies generally prohibiting such a disclosure of an ongoing investigation. However, we 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. We therefore concluded that McCabe’s disclosure of the existence of an ongoing investigation in this manner violated the FBI’s and the Department’s media policy and constituted misconduct.

The OIG is issuing this report to the FBI for such action as it deems appropriate.
