The FBI investigated former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for allegedly leaking information about President Trump and onetime National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

Chuck Ross, at The Daily Caller, explains:
 

The alleged leak, which has not previously been reported, occurred in early February 2017, shortly before Flynn was fired as national security advisor for lying about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador.

According to the FBI documents, the FBI’s office of public affairs received a complaint “regarding a media leak involving a statement overheard in early February 2017.”

“Specifically, the alleged comments were made by DD A. G. McCabe and pertained to General Michael T. Flynn and the POTUS,” reads the FBI document, which the bureau released as part of a trove of documents related to an internal investigation of McCabe.

The investigation, which was into the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive information, appears to have been opened on March 20, 2017.


The documents made public do not disclose the nature of the information McCabe reportedly leaked or what, if any, action the bureau took.
