Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe is suing the DOJ, FBI for wrongful termination and defamation; Ed Henry reports.
Lawyers representing former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe filed a suit against the Justice Department and FBI on Tuesday, alleging that they wouldn’t give up files connected to his ouster.
McCabe’s lawyers claimed the Justice Department has denied access to the sought-after information out of concern that the documents could be later used against them, the lawsuit said. The suit also named the office of the DOJ inspector general.
“We don’t create or adjudicate under secret law or procedure,” David Snyder, a lawyer representing McCabe, told The Associated Press.
A representative for the Justice Department did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
