Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired for leaking to the media, has been hired by news network CNN.

McCabe, who wrote a book, spent the last year defending his actions at the FBI and pushing for President Donald Trump's impeachment.

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

But McCabe was fired the same day he planned on retiring.

A 39-page report was relased by the department's Inspector General Michael Horowitz in February 2018 detailing various instances where McCabe “lacked candor” with then-FBI Director James Comey.

It also detailed investigators related to him greenlighting the disclosure to the media of information linked to the FBI’s investigation and Hillary Clinton.

Comey said he didn't permit McCabe to leak to the media.

McCabe was fired by Sessions the next month, stating he “made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.”

According to The Washington Examiner: McCabe is likely still being scrutinized by Horowitz as part of the DOJ watchdog's investigation into allegations of abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

The surveillance warrant applications targeting Trump associate Carter Page required the approval of top members of the FBI, the DOJ, and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, and the current and former government officials involved will likely face tough questions over their actions. McCabe was involved in the FISA approval process.

Former FBI Deputy General Counsel Trisha Anderson testified to the House Judiciary and Oversight committees last year that McCabe and then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates approved the application before it got to her desk, a necessary process that led her not to second-guess her higher-ups.

Horowitz’s report is expected out in late September or early October.

McCabe in June predicted former special counsel Robert Mueller would probably "go much deeper" into the details of the Russia probe when speaking to Congress.

But, his predictions were way of the mark.
