The Justice Department's inspector general has sent a criminal referral about fired FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe to federal prosecutors in Washington, his lawyer said Thursday.A report from the watchdog office released last week concluded that McCabe had misled investigators and his own boss, then-Director James Comey, about his role in an October 2016 Wall Street Journal article on an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.The report said McCabe authorized FBI officials to share nonpublic information with a reporter -- in this case, details about a tense call between McCabe and a senior Justice Department official -- and then denied having done so when questioned about it under oath.McCabe told the inspector general's office that he told Comey after the article was published that he had allowed the officials to share information about the call and that Comey responded that it was a "good" idea to rebut a one-sided narrative.
