McCabe was sacked Friday night, by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, less than 48 hours before his planned retirement from the bureau.
The FBI's OPR then reviewed the report and underlying documents and issued a disciplinary proposal recommending the dismissal of Mr. McCabe. As many are now finding out, however, there was tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, Justice & State.
Recently, the U.S. president once again urged investigators to end the probe, as no evidence has been found so far.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe late Friday night, about 26 hours before McCabe's retirement, citing an inspector general report from the Justice Department that had found "that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candour - including under oath - on multiple occasions".
"I would say the best thing the special counsel can do is to finish the investigation, gather all the information that's needed [and] come to a conclusion so the American people can make their own decisions", Lankford said. Same with lying James Comey. Yet Trump's trying to argue that because memos weren't written in front of him, they're fake.
Trump tweeted on Sunday: "Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans?" "Another Dem recently added ... does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!".
Trump over the weekend tweeted that the Mueller probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election never should have begun, and on Sunday morning, continued to rail against the ongoing investigation. Because Trump purposely changes the accepted facts, let's go through some of them.
It is unclear exactly what is in McCabe's memos and if he memorialized every interaction he had with the President.

The nearly-12,000 delegates will air their views on alliances based on the draft political resolution to be presented on Saturday. It is clear from the results that people are extremely angry towards the BJP. "It was part of a strategy".
The Trump campaign hired Cambridge Analytica in the summer of 2016. What he could say - but won't - is that no evidence of collusion has been made public to date.
The wide-ranging probe has already seen a number of charges and indictments - including against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Brennan's tweet took on an even more ominous tone after Power later tag-teamed it with this tweet: "Not a good idea to piss off John Brennan", she warned, with a link to Brennan's tweet threatening Trump.
On Friday, Felix Sater, the Russian-born businessman who acted as an intermediary between the Trump Organization and Russia on the deal, confirmed that the company was actively negotiating with a sanctioned Russian bank to secure financing for the building at the height of the 2016 election. That's not a hoax. "WITCH HUNT!" - tweet Saturday. Or a media-created controversy.
Trump's Sunday morning tweet made it look as if Comey's old testimony directly contradicted a statement that former Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director Andrew McCabe released last week, claiming that Comey knew McCabe had authorized agents to speak anonymously to a reporter in 2016. During the interactions, Trump reportedly repeatedly brought up McCabe's wife, who lost a 2015 Virginia state Senate bid and received donations from the super PAC of former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton ally.
That's one hell of a coincidence, right? "Russia attacked our country".
