CREW’s investigation into the McCabe firing has gotten the government to release several hundred pages of documents, thanks to a records lawsuit against the Department of Justice. The records shed light on the DOJ’s process and reasoning, and CREW has conducted in depth analysis of the returns released so far.
March-June 2019: CREW received records from the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation as part of the lawsuit that reveal important context for McCabe’s firing and Rod Rosenstein’s defense of the investigation of McCabe’s firing. The records show how certain members of the administration sought to defend McCabe. They also shed light on his media contacts and Jim Comey’s knowledge of them.
Records: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.
January 2020: The DOJ released partial interviews with Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe and James Comey.
