Rep. Jordan Rips McCabe's 'Scheming': 'That's What Troubles All of America'
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said that the Department of Justice's report on Andrew McCabe reveals the former deputy FBI director's "scheming," and it is extremely troubling.
The bombshell report discusses McCabe authorizing an information leak about the FBI's probe of the Clinton Foundation to the Wall Street Journal, and then misleading investigators about the leak soon after.
"You talk about scheming, you talk about crafty ... that's what he did," Jordan said to Neil Cavuto on "Your World."
"That's what troubles me, what troubles you and, more importantly, what troubles all of America."
The report states, "We concluded that McCabe’s decision to confirm the existence of the [Clinton Foundation] investigation through an anonymously sourced quote, recounting the content of a phone call with a senior department official in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of department leadership, was clearly not within the public interest exception."
Jordan said that although it doesn't appear that former FBI Director James Comey knew of McCabe's wrongdoings, Comey "has a leak problem of his own."
"I just don't think either one of these guys is all that credible," Jordan said. "I think the American public has reached the same conclusion."
President Trump reacted to the report Friday, tweeting that "McCabe was totally controlled by Comey."
DOJ just issued the McCabe report - which is a total disaster. He LIED! LIED! LIED! McCabe was totally controlled by Comey - McCabe is Comey!! No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!
