(Worthy News) - The FBI initiated an investigation in March 2017 concerning an alleged, previously unreported media leak about President Trump and former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn -- and since-fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was a witness in the probe, newly released documents publicly posted by the FBI show.

McCabe was fired in March just before his planned retirement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, following a review by the DOJ's internal watchdog that found McCabe "repeatedly" lied to investigators about his knowledge of leaks to the Wall Street Journal regarding the agency's probe into the Clinton Foundation. In reality, McCabe had authorized a series of leaks, according to the DOJ's Inspector General, and he reportedly is under a grand jury investigation to determine if any criminal wrongdoing took place.

Monday's document release by the FBI suggested McCabe may have had some knowledge about an additional leak that was not previously disclosed, even though McCabe was not a subject of the leak investigation. Along with McCabe, two FBI assistant directors and an unidentified individual are listed as witnesses in the probe. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
