Aas expected, Donald Trump melts down after former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe breaks his silence and said he ordered an obstruction of justice probe of him following James Comey’s firing.
McCabe, who is making the media rounds for his new book The Threat, said soon after speaking with Trump about Comey’s firing, he began obstruction of justice and counterintelligence investigations involving Trump and his ties to Russia.
Trump tweeted: “Disgraced FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe pretends to be a “poor little Angel” when in fact he was a big part of the Crooked Hillary Scandal & the Russia Hoax – a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey. I.G. report on McCabe was devastating. Part of “insurance policy” in case I won.”
He continued in a second tweet: “Many of the top FBI brass were fired, forced to leave, or left. McCabe’s wife received BIG DOLLARS from Clinton people for her campaign – he gave Hillary a pass. McCabe is a disgrace to the FBI and a disgrace to our Country.”
McCabe said he put safeguards in place that would make quashing the investigation very hard. “I was very concerned that I was able to put the Russia case on absolutely solid ground, in an indelible fashion.”
“That were I removed quickly, or reassigned or fired, that the case could not be closed or vanish in the night without a trace.”
