Last week we reported that newly-ousted Andrew McCabe has been shown to have lied at least four times.
And now it has been revealed that his account of whether he was authorized to leak intel to the media concerning the Russia dossier is in direct conflict with testimony given by former Director James Comey.
Comey had previously testified that no authorization was given, but McCabe says he was. And now McCabe’s attorney is publicly calling Comey’s recollection into question.
So the knives are out and someone’s going to take the fall for FBI collusion.
IG Horowitz’s report will be very eye-opening, and it’s almost a certainty that someone goes to jail.
Here’s more from Daily Caller…
An internal FBI report appears to put Andrew McCabe’s word against James Comey’s.
The two fired FBI officials have different recollections about whether McCabe told Comey that he authorized leaks to the media in October 2016 about the Hillary Clinton investigation.
It emerged on Thursday that a report from the FBI’s disciplinary office stated that McCabe lied four separate times, including to Comey, about his role in authorizing a leak to The Wall Street Journal.
“Four times he lied. He lied to James Comey. He lied to the Office of Professional Responsibility, and he lied twice under oath to the inspector general,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said on Thursday, shortly after members of his staff viewed a report from the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR).
McCabe’s lawyer, Michael Bromwich, said on Friday that McCabe did not lie to Comey. He said that McCabe has email traffic showing that he and Comey discussed McCabe’s decision to authorize a leak to the media.
“One thing is clear: Mr. McCabe never misled Director Comey. Director Comey’s memory of these interactions was equivocal and speculative, while Mr. McCabe’s recollection is clear, unequivocal and supported by documentary evidence,” Bromwich said in a statement.
“Director Comey has no specific recollection of what Mr. McCabe told him, while Mr. McCabe remembers the two discussed the article before and after its publication.”
