Trump On Ex-Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe's ’60 Minutes’ Interview
President Donald Trump took issue on Twitter Monday with ex-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s statements from his “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday.
“Wow, so many lies by now disgraced acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “He was fired for lying, and now his story gets even more deranged. He and [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by [former Attorney General] Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught…”
“There is a lot of explaining to do to the millions of people who had just elected a president who they really like and who has done a great job for them with the Military, Vets, Economy and so much more,” Trump continued. “This was the illegal and treasonous ‘insurance policy’ in full action!”
It was revealed that McCabe began the obstruction of justice probe involving the Trump campaign and its ties to Russia when portions of his interview with Scott Pelley were aired early on Wednesday.
“I was very concerned that I was able to put the Russia case on absolutely solid ground, in an indelible fashion,” McCabe said in the interview. “That were I removed quickly, or reassigned or fired, that the case could not be closed or vanish in the night without a trace.”
That investigation would be taken over by special counsel Robert Mueller in May 2017.
McCabe denies accusations from the Office of the Inspector General that he purposefully misled investigators.
McCabe’s wife Jill McCabe lost a 2015 bid for Virginia state Senate “for which she received several hundred thousand dollars in campaign donations from a PAC linked to the Clintons,” reported Fox News.
