Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe apologized to an FBI investigator after changing his story regarding a leak to the media in October 2016, according to documents released Tuesday.
McCabe was interviewed May 9, 2017, the same day James Comey was fired as FBI director, regarding two separate leaks to the media. During the interview, FBI agents also asked McCabe whether he knew how FBI information wound up in an Oct. 23, 2016, Wall Street Journal article about an investigation of the Clinton Foundation.
McCabe said during that sit-down he did not know how the Journal story came about, but he changed his story in an interview several months later, an FBI agent told investigators with the Justice Departments inspector general (IG). The IG later determined McCabe directed his general counsel, Lisa Page, to share information with a Journal reporter regarding the Clinton Foundation investigation.
McCabe admitted his role in authorizing the leaks during an interview with FBI agents Aug. 15, 2017, according to the documents, which were obtained by the liberal watchdog group, Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington.
"I need to know from you did you authorize this article? Were you aware of it? Did you authorize it? the FBI agent said he asked McCabe during the follow-up interview.
And as nice as could be, he said, yep. Yep I did, the FBI agent said of McCabe, according to the documents, which The Daily Beast first reported.

I hope his good manners get him a better job in prison.
Prosecute him with extreme prejudice.
oh well that makes it all right then...
And Comey said he (himself) was wrong about FISA...and we know he leaked. He’s one arrogant sob...just like Stroke.
Not to us.
True repentance would involve spilling a whole lot of beans.
oh, he apologized, well, that makes all the difference in the world...
He returned the money to the bank, didn’t he? Well then...
Mistakes were made.
A criminal robs a bank and gets caught. He says I’m sorry “...and the police let him go. Yeah, that’s how that works .
Lying to the FBI is a criminal offense for us. A simple apology will suffice for them. John Edwards was right. There are two Americas.
Awww little guy is sorry now that Durham is getting close to ripping his balls off. I guess we can for get about the whole thing!
Attorneys for Roger Stone and Paul Manafort have requested the magic words used in McCabe’s “apology.”
It’s all about intent. McCabe didn’t intend to get caught.
No REASONABLE prosecutor would.......
Awww little guy is sorry now that Durham is getting close to ripping his balls off.
You nailed that. If he hasnt flipped already hes close to it.
His suicide will be a tragic loss.
I missed that change in the law.
He hasn’t apologized to President Trump or the American people yet. Hang, draw, and quarter him, and bury his parts at various crossroads.
