New details emerged Tuesday about what caused FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe to get forced out – including a revelation that the bureau’s inspector general was focusing in on why it took him weeks to examine Clinton emails discovered on Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
The inspector general, who is conducting a probe of the FBI’s 2016 Clinton email probe as well as its Trump Russia probe, wants to know who at the FBI and Justice Department knew about the emails on Weiner’s laptop and when they learned about them, the Washington Post reported.
Weeks before the 2016 election, it was revealed that a previously unknown cache of Hillary Clinton‘s emails had been stored the laptop of the former New York representative.
Investigators later found they had been backed up from devices used by Huma Abedin, the longtime staff aide of Clinton who is married to the disgraced ex-lawmaker.
