McCabe sues Justice, FBI for materials related to his firing

Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is digging in for a legal battle.

Disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is suing the Department of Justice over his firing.

McCabe alleges that the Justice Department has failed to identify the policies and procedures it followed before axing him from his post.

And The New York Times reported two weeks ago that McCabe had secretly written a memo to Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III in the spring detailing a conversation on the firing of Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

McCabe's suit against the Department of Justice comes just one day before the expected release of the inspector general's 500-page report on the Obama FBI and Justice Department's handling of the Clinton email investigation.

Hillary Clinton masterfully mocks James Comey over his misuse of private email
The inspector general says he did not follow regulations. "The OIG report makes clear that we've got some work to do", Wray said. Peter Strzok's manifest bias trending toward animus casts a pall on this investigation.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe based on the recommendations provided by the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility.

McCabe was dismissed in March shortly before his planned retirement for what the DOJ called a "lack of candour". The move denied McCabe and his family health benefits and delayed his federal pension.

McCabe's lawyers claimed that the Justice Department has denied their client access to the sought-after information out of concern that the documents could be later used against them, the lawsuit said.

"Plaintiff has repeatedly requested that Defendants disclose those policies and procedures".
