Trump declares 'McCabe is Comey' in wild rage-tweet

McCabe told the official to "get his house in order".

Sacked FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe misled investigators about his role in a news story about Hillary Clinton just days before the 2016 presidential election, a watchdog has found.

The Washington official had a similar experience with McCabe. The inspector general said that the disclosure to the Journal was made "in a manner created to advance his personal interests at the expense of department leadership".

The inspector general "concluded that McCabe's disclosure of the existence of an ongoing investigation in this manner violated the FBI's and the Department's media policy and constituted misconduct", according to a copy of the report.

Horowitz wrote in a letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley Friday he expected the report to be released in May, "absent any new additional developments".

Russian Federation calls chemical attack in Syria a 'fabrication'
Stoltenberg said that the strike "will reduce the regime's ability to further attack the people of Syria with chemical weapons ". Iranian state TV is reporting the country's Foreign Ministry has strongly condemned the US -led airstrikes on Syria .


President Donald Trump cheered the report on Friday and used it to attack Comey. "He LIED! LIED! LIED!"

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders added her own condemnation of McCabe and Comey during the White House press briefing.

"No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes", the president said. The report alleges that McCabe authorized FBI officials to speak with a Wall Street Journal reporter for a story about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation and then misled FBI and Justice Department officials when later questioned about it.

The report also reveals starkly contradictory accounts from Mr McCabe and Mr Comey about how the conversations with the reporter had come to take place.

McCabe denied the report's allegations in a detailed rebuttal statement. In particular, McCabe authorized Special Counsel and AD/OPA to disclose to Barrett the contents of a telephone call that had occurred on August 12, 2016, between McCabe and the then-Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General ("PADAG"). McCabe took over as acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director after Comey's ouster. Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe on March 16.

Air strikes launched in Syria in response to suspected chemical weapons attack
The Pentagon said the targets of the Syria attack have been destroyed and the operation had ended, according to reports. It does not appear that there are any follow up strikes now planned based on the available information at the time.


Trump's rage about McCabe and Comey continued unabated Friday, as he used the report to once again try to discredit the investigation into his campaign's dealings with Russians. McCabe has been the subject of controversy over ties to the Democratic Party through his wife Jill, who ran for state office in Virginia in 2015 and received $500,000 from the super PAC of Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton ally and governor of Virginia at the time.

"McCabe was sacked in disgrace for misconduct and lying about it". I can't disregard his actions, but I'm disappointed the context wasn't given more weight. His lawyer says the inspector general unfairly tried to conclude its work before McCabe could retire.

"At no time did McCabe disclose to either of them that McCabe had authorized Special Counsel to disclose information about the CF Investigation to the WSJ reporter", the report reads.

"He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a bad director of the FBI", Trump tweeted.
