UH OH: Now McCabe is hitting back at Comey…

Today on The View, Former FBI Director James Comey admitted that he was the one who began the probe that led to the ousting of his deputy director, Andrew McCabe:

FOX NEWS – James Comey on Wednesday confirmed he was the one who kick-started the inspector general probe that led to his former deputy Andrew McCabe’s ouster, while seeming to back its findings that McCabe lied about a media leak.

The fired FBI director addressed his former colleague’s controversies during an appearance on ABC’s “The View,” after being pressed by host Megan McCain on how the public was supposed to have “confidence” in the bureau after revelations that ex-deputy director McCabe lied about the leak.

“It’s not okay. The McCabe case illustrates what an organization committed to the truth looks like,” Comey said. “I ordered that investigation.”

Comey seemed to defend McCabe’s character even while backing the DOJ inspector general probe’s findings.

“Good people lie. I think I’m a good person, where I have lied,” Comey said. “I still believe Andrew McCabe is a good person but the inspector general found he lied.”

Comey added that there are “severe consequences” within the Justice Department and the FBI for those who lie.

But now McCabe is hitting back, via his attorney, who says that McCabe told Comey several times that he was leaking to the WSJ:

Here’s the full statement from McCabe:

Wow. What a mess.

Who is lying? Who knows. Neither man seems trustworthy at this point.

I guess this is what it looks like in the aftermath of the FBI being politicized.
