President Trump Goes After McCabe Following 60 Minutes Interview
0

On Twitter earlier today, President Trump had some harsh words for former FBI Director Andrew McCabe, US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions following McCabe’s appearance on CBS’s 60 Minutes last nights. During the interview, McCabe claimed Rosenstein repeatedly offered to wear a wire to secretly record conversations with President Trump. Rosenstein has denied the accusation, with Justice Department officials reportedly claiming Rosenstein was only joking around about recording the president.

Here is how President Trump responded on Twitter to McCabe’s 60 Minutes interview:

“Wow, so many lies by now disgraced acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. He was fired for lying, and now his story gets even more deranged. He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by 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. This was the illegal and treasonous “insurance policy” in full action!”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned from office in November at the president’s request. Rosenstein is expected to resign once William Barr is confirmed as Attorney General. Although Rosenstein claims he was joking about wearing a wire to record the president, McCabe insists Rosenstein was “absolutely serious” about recording the president.

In addition to his claims against Rosenstein, McCabe says several high ranking individuals in the Justice Department discussed the possibility of removing the president from office through the 25th Amendment. The 25th Amendment pertains to replacing the president or vice president in the case of death, impeachment, or resignation. It’s unclear how they anticipated to carry out the alleged plan against the president. Many, including President Trump, have criticized the concept of unelected bureaucrats contemplating the removal of the President of the United States.
