“The FBI opened an investigation into an unauthorized media leak of a comment made by former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe about former national security adviser Michael Flynn and President Trump, according to bureau documents released Monday.
The documents show that the FBI’s Office of Public Affairs received a complaint about an alleged leak that involved “a statement overheard in early February 2017.”
“Specifically, the alleged comments were made by DD AG McCabe and pertained to General Michael T. Flynn and the POTUS,” one document states.
The investigation into the unauthorized media disclosure appears to have started on March 20, 2017.
The document states that McCabe was a witness in the investigation, and that the subject, or the person who leaked the comment, was unknown.
A spokesperson for McCabe declined to comment.” (Read more: The Hill, 10/16/2018)
