(From BBC News)
The US Justice Department has delivered a scathing report to Congress accusing fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe of repeatedly misleading investigators.
The agency inspector general’s report outlines an inquiry into Mr McCabe which US Attorney General Jeff Sessions cited when he fired him last month.
The report claims Mr McCabe “lacked candour” in conversations about leaking information to US media.
The review found Mr McCabe, 50, authorised his aides to disclose internal FBI and justice department information about a Clinton Foundation investigation to a Wall Street Journal reporter in October 2016.
He previously told investigators as well as his former boss, then FBI director James Comey, he did not authorise the leak and “did not know who did”, according to the report.
