Last month the FBI released part one of its Office of Professional Responsibility investigation into McCabe and it revealed the bureau investigated the former FBI Deputy Director in March of 2017 for an unauthorized media leak about General Mike Flynn.
The leak occurred in February of 2017, shortly before General Flynn was fired from his post as National Security Advisor, according an FBI document published as part of a tranche of FOIA documents released.
Details about the nature of the leak were not provided.
“OPA EM was electronically contacted by (redacted) regarding a media leak involving a statement overheard in early February 2017, allegedly made by FBI EM,” the document reads “Specifically, the alleged comments were made by DD A.G. McCabe and pertained to General Michael T. Flynn and the POTUS.”
Andrew McCabe was fired from his position as FBI Deputy Director in mid-March after Inspector General Michael Horowitz concluded he ‘lacked candor’ and lied to investigators, including under oath several times.
A Grand Jury has been impaneled to investigate Andrew McCabe.
