Trump was reacting to the Department of Justice's release of its report from the inspector general, saying McCabe "lacked candor" and misled investigators.
McCabe "lacked candor" when he talked with then-FBI Director James Comey, the IG report said, or "made statements that led Comey to believe, that McCabe had not authorized the disclosure and did not know who did".
He was under oath when he lied to the FBI agents, the inspector general said in a lengthy new report that could prove devastating to Mr. McCabe's credibility, and to other ongoing investigations.

Republican critics have already seized on revelations that two FBI officials who worked on the Russian Federation investigation, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, exchanged text messages that were sharply critical of Trump. Comey accuses the president of being "untethered to truth", and describes in detail his interactions with Mr. Trump. McCabe told the official to "get his house in order".
