The Department of Justice announced that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe would not face criminal charges for allegedly lying to investigators about media leaks, according to the ex-official's attorneys.

McCabe's lawyers said in a statement:

"We learned this morning through a phone call from the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office that was followed by a letter that the Justice Department's criminal investigation of Andrew McCabe has been closed."

"At long last, justice has been done in this matter."

President Donald Trump previously called for action to be taken against McCabe, who became acting head of the agency after Trump fired James Comey in 2017.

"He LIED! LIED! LIED!" Trump wrote in one 2018.

In August last year, McCabe was hired by news network CNN.

He filed suit in federal court earlier in August, accusing Trump of making his subordinates at the Justice Department to participate in an “unconstitutional plan and scheme” to have him fired.

Last month, the New York Post reported McCabe apologized for lying to agents who spent weeks investigating the source of a leak to the Wall Street Journal that actually came from him, new documents reveal.

Shortly before the 2016 election, The Journal reported that an FBI investigation was underway involving then-candidate Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.

McCabe in May 2017 denied that he was the source of the leak — but later fessed up, angering bureau investigators who had been spinning their wheels trying to identify the source of the leak.

McCabe appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington last month when his lawyers met with Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, but the request was rejected.

The now dropped charges related to DOJ inspector general findings against McCabe's misleading statements on a Hillary Clinton-related investigation.
