Trump Slams ‘Deranged’ McCabe: Planned ‘a Very Illegal Act’
President Donald Trump early Monday lambasted former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, calling his claims to CBS’ “60 Minutes” that deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was “absolutely” on board with investigations targeting the president after he fired FBI Director James Comey “deranged.”
He also looped in fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions in his early morning Twitter attacks.
“Wow, so many lies by now disgraced acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe,” Trump said. “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,” he added. “This was the illegal and treasonous ‘insurance policy’ in full action!”
McCabe on Sunday claimed that a “crime may have been committed” when Trump fired Comey and undermined the investigation into his campaign’s ties with Russia.
“The idea is, if the president committed obstruction of justice, fired the director of the of the FBI to negatively impact or to shut down our investigation of Russia’s malign activity and possibly in support of his campaign, as a counterintelligence investigator you have to ask yourself, “Why would a president of the United States do that?” McCabe said.
Earlier on Monday, Trump tweeted a shoutout to NBC News reporter Ken Dilanian, reported last week that the Senate Intelligence Committee had not discovered direct evidence between the Trump campaign and Russia.
