Report: DOJ Inspector General makes criminal referral on McCabe


WASHINGTON (Circa) - The United States Department of Justice Inspector General has made a criminal referral pertaining to Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, according to CNN.

The report claims the criminal referral regarding McCabe was made to the U.S. Attorney Office in Washington D.C. Previously the Justice Department found that the former FBI deputy director and FBI officials disclosed information on an investigation into the Clinton Foundation to the Wall Street Journal for a story.

The DOJ said McCabe could not disclose that an investigation into the Clinton Foundation existed because it was not in the department's "public interest," according to CNN.

McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in March, two days before his official retirement date.
