But Andrew McCabe lied.
Andrew McCabe and his attorneys were informed of his firing before the news media.
The Hill reported:
The Department of Justice (DOJ) pushed back on a report Friday that former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe learned of his firing from a press release.
A DOJ spokeswoman told The Hill that “Mr. McCabe and his lawyer were informed in advance of the news media” after a representative for McCabe told CNN that the No. 2 FBI official learned of his firing by Attorney General Jeff Sessions through a press release.
McCabe, who served with the FBI for more than 20 years, was fired Friday just two days shy of when he was set to retire, potentially jeopardizing his pension. McCabe had stepped down under pressure in January and was already on a leave of absence.
