Bromwich also accused opponents of McCabe, like President Trump, of "continuing slander."

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe earlier this year after an inspector general report found he made an unauthorized disclosure to the media and was not being forthcoming with federal investigators.

McCabe denied the allegations and said that he was being targeted in an effort to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election interference.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz released the report last week of McCabe's conduct at the FBI, alleging that he authorized a leak to the press to "advance his personal interests" and misled investigators about the matter. Trump called the report a "disaster" for McCabe.

Horowitz issued a criminal referral to the U.S. Attorney's Office in D.C. Thursday related to McCabe's conduct that his attorney called "unjustified."
