President Donald Trump was quick to seize on the news, tweeting McCabe "LIED!" The report also says that McCabe told investigators he had informed Comey in October 2016 that he had authorized a discussion of the conversation, while Comey testified that he did not recall McCabe doing so. "No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!" According to the report, McCabe also misled internal investigators three times over the course of 2017 regarding the media disclosures - while under oath. The OIG interviewed numerous witnesses, including McCabe, Special Counsel, former FBI Director James Comey, and others.
Andrew McCabe has always been under fire, specifically by Republicans who have voiced conflict-of-interest complaints over McCabe's ties to the Democratic Party.
Trump has accused both Comey and McCabe of political bias in their roles at the top law enforcement agency, and attacked Comey in numerous tweets on Friday following the release of excerpts of Comey's book.

With snow still covering local courses he is having to play virtual reality golf to knock the rust off of his irons and wedges. That's what we're striving for. "We are supposed to have an outdoor meet here next Tuesday, but I don't see it happening".
Democrats have emphasized that McCabe's dismissal has nothing to do with the special counsel's investigation into Trump and Russian Federation, while raising questions about the firing.
To support this, McCabe has noted that the inspector general's investigation into him was accelerated after he told congressional investigators that he could corroborate Comey's accounts of his conversations with Trump.
McCabe's lawyer, Michal R. Bromwich, responded to Trump's tweet Friday, saying that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy is "actively considering" filing a defamation lawsuit against the president and others.

The ranging payload of IRNSS-1I consists of a C-band transponder, which facilitates accurate determination of range of satellite. The biggest is OneWeb, the satellite firm backed by Richard Branson and Softbank that plans to launch over 1,000 satellites.
On Friday morning, Trump tweeted that Comey was "a proven LEAKER & LIAR", a "weak and untruthful slime ball" and "a bad director of the FBI".
The inspector general report alleges that McCabe authorized FBI officials to speak with a Wall Street Journal reporter for a story about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation and then misled FBI and Justice Department officials when later questioned about it. "House Republicans will nearly certainly try to use this report to fuel their efforts to distract from the abuses of power by this Administration and to undermine the Department of Justice".
We therefore concluded that McCabe's disclosure of the existence of an ongoing investigation in this manner violated the FBI's and the Department's media policy and constituted misconduct. Comey, who was sacked by Trump in May, called the president "unethical, and untethered to the truth", according to excerpts from the book.

McCabe contacted the NY official again on November 4 following the publication of another Wall Street Journal article that referred to the information McCabe had leaked. Though the statement or suggestion was not under oath, it still got McCabe in trouble.
