It's Andrew McCabe Versus James Comey

Former FBI Director Comey arrives for a taping of

Agents with the Justice Department, inspector overall's off ice and also USA attorney's office all fell to comment.

The inspector general's referral for the possible prosecution of McCabe, first reported by CNN and the Washington Post, came almost a week after the inspector general's office said it had concluded that he had misled investigators over a decision to break with the FBI's standard policy and inform a journalist about a probe into the Clinton Foundation in 2016.

"This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the Federal Bureau of Investigation, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally", McCabe said in a statement on the night he was removed from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Following his firing, McCabe set up a GoFundMe page to cover his legal expenses. Sessions made the decision after a recommendaton from the DOJ Office of the Inspector General and FBI Office of Professional Responsibility.

Hillary Clinton, among others, has blamed Comey for tilting the 2016 election in Trump's favor when the then-FBI director opted to inform the public repeatedly about the investigation into her email practices as secretary of state.

Nevertheless, the inspector general also concluded that McCabe "lacked candor" in May 2017 when interviewed by officials from the FBI's Inspection Division.

Comey also oversaw an investigation into potential coordination between Trump's associates and Russian Federation to influence that election. The deputy told him the answer was 2,000.

Comey's interview came shortly after a source told CNN that the Justice Department would provide Congress with memos Comey had written on his conversations with Trump.

"People must fear the consequences of lying in the justice system or the system can't work", he wrote.

The article was a detailed account of internal strife within the top ranks of the DOJ about how to proceed after FBI agents investigating Anthony Weiner, the former NY congressman, discovered 650,000 emails on his laptop that could have been sent to or received from Clinton's private email server. While at the FBI, McCabe played a pivotal role in the investigation into Clinton's emails. McCabe felt the story would portray him and the Federal Bureau of Investigation unfairly, so he authorized two other Federal Bureau of Investigation officials to give Barrett his account. Instead, Comey disputed McCabe's account.

"The rush to judgment - and the rush to terminate Mr. McCabe - were unprecedented, unseemly, and cruel", Michael Bromwich, an attorney for McCabe, said in a statement. McCabe asked the official: "Are you telling me that I need to shut down a validly predicated investigation?"

The inspector general found that McCabe's authorization of disclosures to the media regarding the Clinton Foundation investigation "effectively confirmed the existence" of the inquiry, something Comey "had previously refused to do".

"What's gone on so far has been the accountability mechanisms of the department working because it's a department that's committed to the truth", Comey said. "I still believe Andrew McCabe is a good person, but the inspector general found he lied".

"Good people lie. I think I'm a good person, where I have lied", Comey said.
