Andrew McCabe, the Justice Department’s Jussie Smollett

Just like his boss and hero former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe has written a Trump-trashing book. Truth means nothing. He's worse than Comey. It barely matters to his interviewers that he was fired from the top of the FBI for ... allegedly lying his face off to the FBI. While the media relish the idea of jail time for Trump aides caught lying to investigators, this man gets a red carpet and a pat on the back. McCabe's book tour has created headlines like this, from a CNN interview: "McCabe: It's Possible Trump Is a Russian Asset." Thirty minutes on CBS' "60 Minutes," 15 minutes on NPR's "Morning Edition," 24 minutes on ABC's "The View," an hour on NPR's "Fresh Air," 30 minutes on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," 40 minutes on MSNBC's "The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell," 20 minutes on CBS' "Late Show With Stephen Colbert." McCabe despises Trump. The media love McCabe. McCabe's lying under oath also drew several minutes on NPR's "Morning Edition," and even then, NPR cut the interview into two segments and eagerly promoted the other half -- the Trump-and-Russia half.

‘So many lies’: Trump attacks McCabe over explosive CBS interview

Donald Trump returned to the attack against Andrew McCabe on Monday, in response to an interview in which the former deputy FBI director discussed his new book and made claims damaging to the president. 'I believe Putin': Trump dismissed US advice on North Korea threat, says McCabe Read more In the interview, broadcast by CBS 60 Minutes on Sunday night, McCabe addressed, among other matters: How the deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein was told by Trump to write a memo justifying the firing of FBI director James Comey in May 2017 How, following the firing of Comey, McCabe ordered investigations of whether it was done to impede the investigation of Russian election interference and whether Trump was acting on behalf of the Russian government How he believes that is why he himself was fired Discussions about whether Trump could be removed from office under the 25th amendment Discussions about whether Rosenstein should wear a wire to record the president How Trump ignored US intelligence advice on North Korea’s nuclear capability and said: “I don’t care. So it was really something that he kinda threw out in a very frenzied chaotic conversation.” The deputy attorney general also offered to wear a wire to record conversations with Trump, McCabe said. “The deputy attorney general [DAG] never authorized any recording that Mr McCabe references,” the statement said. The president may have been engaged in obstruction of justice in the firing of Jim Comey Andrew McCabe He told CBS: “Rod was concerned by his interactions with the president, who seemed to be very focused on firing the director and saying things like, ‘Make sure you put Russia in your memo.’ That concerned Rod in the same way that it concerned me and the FBI investigators on the Russia case. “If Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein listed the Russia investigation in his memo to the White House, it could look like he was obstructing the Russia probe by suggesting Comey’s firing. And the president responded, ‘I understand that, I am asking you to put Russia in the memo anyway.’” Publicly, shortly after Comey’s firing, Trump told NBC he had done it because of “this Russia thing”. The president, then, fired the director. “In the firing of the director, the president specifically asked Rod Rosenstein to write the memo justifying the firing and told Rod to include Russia in the memo. On CBS, McCabe was asked how he could remember conversations with Trump well enough to put them in a book.

Rod Rosenstein, key figure behind Mueller inquiry, expected to step down in mid-March

Rod Rosenstein, the US deputy attorney general who appointed a special counsel to investigate possible ties between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign, is expected to step down by mid March, a Justice Department official has said. 'So many lies': Trump attacks McCabe over explosive CBS interview Read more Rosenstein, the No. 2 official at the Justice Department, in May 2017 named Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate ties between Trump’s 2016 presidential election campaign and Moscow. He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught..... February 18, 2019 In an interview broadcast on Sunday with CBS News 60 Minutes, former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe confirmed the Times account that Rosenstein considered wearing a wire in meetings with Trump. Andrew McCabe says officials discussed removing Trump after Comey firing Read more Earlier on Monday Trump accused both McCabe and Rosenstein of planning a “very illegal act,” which he described in a tweet as “illegal and treasonous.“ Rosenstein ceased overseeing Mueller’s probe on 7 November when Trump named Matt Whittaker acting attorney general. Barr now has oversight of the investigation. Rosenstein had attracted far more attention than is typical for the No. 2 Justice Department official because of his decision to appoint Mueller to lead the investigation eight days after Trump fired James Comey as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The president has denied any collusion and Russia says there was no election meddling, despite findings to the contrary by U.S. intelligence agencies. Mueller’s investigation, which the president has repeatedly called a “witch hunt,” has so far netted 34 individuals and three companies who have pleaded guilty, been indicted or been otherwise swept up in the inquiry.
