Forget the bullshit Trump & Co. is trying to sell about former FBI Chief trying to launch a ‘coup’…..
McCabe has revealed that the ‘gang of eight’…
The top Democrats and Republicans in Congress when he and Rod Rosenstein , worried about Donald Trump and the Russians connections, started a FBI investigation that would end up turning into the Robert Mueller Special Counsel Trump 2016 campaign Russian connection investigations…
McCabe and the FBI did NOT freelance something as big as investigating a sitting American President seeming to embrace the Russians more than his own countries government…
They where scared….
Most of us understand why…..
Former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe said Tuesday that officials briefed a bipartisan group of lawmakers after the bureau opened an investigation into President Trump in May 2017, and that no one in the room pushed back.
“That’s the important part here, Savannah,” McCabe said in an interview with Savannah Guthrie on NBC’s “Today” show. “No one objected. Not on legal grounds, not on constitutional grounds and not based on the facts.”
The comments seemed designed to rebut criticism that McCabe has faced from Trump and other Republicans for initiating the investigation into Trump and participating in conversations about other, more dramatic steps against the president. McCabe told CBS’s “60 Minutes” over the weekend that Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein talked with him about wearing a wire to surreptitiously record the president, or using the 25th Amendment to oust him — prompting a strong, negative reaction from Trump and his GOP allies. Rosenstein has vaguely disputed McCabe’s description of those conversations.
“Treason!” Trump wrote Monday night on Twitter, after apparently quoting from a segment on Sean Hannity’s television show about McCabe.
The briefing, McCabe said, was with the Gang of Eight — a bipartisan group of lawmakers comprising the Democratic and Republican leaders of the House and Senate, as well as the leaders from both parties of the House and Senate intelligence committees.
McCabe — who is in the middle of a media tour promoting his new book, “The Threat” — told Guthrie the FBI felt it had good reason to investigate Trump in May 2017 after he fired James B. Comey as the bureau’s director. He said the bureau thought it was “possible” that Trump was working on behalf of Russia, and opening a case signified that the FBI was treating the matter as a national security threat…..
