President Trump blasted former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe after he revealed in an new book and interview just how far he and other DOJ officials went to try to destroy the commander-in-chief.

“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….,” the President wrote on Twitter.”

He continued, “….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. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

In an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes, McCabe said he ordered investigators to look into whether or not the President obstructed justice by firing disgraced FBI Director James Comey.

According to 60 Minutes host Scott Pelley, McCabe also confirmed reports that the Department of Justice was, indeed, looking into invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

He also “confirms” a September 2018 New York Times report which claimed that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire and secretly record President Trump.

Rosenstein has denied the reports about him, and stories surfaced that he made the comments “in jest.” However, McCabe’s confirmation seems to be in line with former FBI General Counsel James Baker, who told Congress in a closed-door testimony he took Rosenstein’s recording comments “seriously.”

In a statement today, a DOJ spokesman again denied the claims, writing, “As the Deputy Attorney General previously has stated, based on his personal dealings with the President, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment, nor was the DAG in a position to consider invoking the 25th Amendment,” the statement read.
