IG: McCabe is a leaker and a liar

J Christian AdamsThe report from the Department of Justice inspector general on Andrew McCabe is out. It concludes that McCabe repeatedly lacked candor and leaked materials to the Wall Street Journal that he was not authorized to leak. All of this comes on a day when President Trump pardoned Scooter Libby after his conviction for lying, citing evidence that Department of Justice prosecutors withheld evidence from a witness that affected her testimony.

So, McCabe lied to Comey about leaking to the Wall Street Journal, then lied to INSD agents investigating the leak under oath, then lied to the IG about those prior lies. In addition, the IG says McCabe wasn't authorized to leak the information in the first place.

The IG is referring the report to the FBI, which will likely do nothing.
