Michael Bromwich says McCabe’s legal team has been in touch with federal prosecutors in Washington handling the case.
Bromwich joined McCabe for a wide-ranging discussion with reporters Thursday.
The Justice Department inspector general last year referred to prosecutors’ allegations that McCabe had lied during an internal investigation into a news media disclosure. Those allegations prompted McCabe’s March 2018 firing.
McCabe has denied lying and has said his firing was politically motivated.
Bromwich said McCabe expects to file a lawsuit over his firing soon.
