The Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated at least 14 employees since 2016 for unauthorized disclosures of bureau information and fired at least four, according to documents released Tuesday.
Several of the FBI employees were recommended for termination, but received lighter punishments, such as suspension without pay.
Fitton pointed out that although McCabe was fired and referred for the prosecution he was never actually prosecuted.
Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, said that the documents reveal “lenient treatment for evident criminal activity.”
He also suggested that one of the investigations involved Andrew McCabe, the former deputy FBI director who was fired for lying to FBI investigators about authorizing leaks to the press about the investigation of Hillary Clinton.
