Trump contradicts himself, claims he didn't fire Comey 'because of Russia'

McCabe Gave Mueller a Secret Memo that Could Contain Crucial Information About Trump Firing Comey: Report

McCabe Gave Mueller a Secret Memo that Could Contain Crucial Information About Trump Firing Comey: Report

Former FBI Director James Comey was recently questioned by the D.C. U.S. Attorney's office as part of a probe into whether Andrew McCabe, his former deputy, committed a crime by lying to federal agents, a Thursday report claimed.

During a CNN interview conducted shortly after Trump posted his tweet, Sen.

The document has been turned over to special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election and whether the president sought to obstruct that inquiry through actions that include the dismissal of Comey, who oversaw the probe.

Oh for Pete's sake.

Former deputy Federal Bureau of Investigation director Andrew McCabe was concerned about remarks Rod Rosenstein reportedly made regarding the justification for James Comey's firing as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"Regardless of the recommendation I was going to fire Comey", Trump told Holt. Maybe I'll expand that - you know, I'll lengthen the time because it should be over with. Mr. Rosenstein played a key role in the dismissal, writing a memo that rebuked Mr. Comey over his handling of an investigation into Hillary Clinton. Unfortunately of Trump, however, he admitted he fired Comey because of the FBI's investigation on national TV previous year.

Comey has said that even though he feels "mildly nauseous" that his announcement may have impacted the election, he doesn't regret sending the letters.

It's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should've won.'" Moreover, on the day after he fired Comey, Trump in the Oval Office allegedly told the Russian foreign minister and ambassador: "I faced great pressure because of Russia. Still, one consideration lingers: It takes an unbelievable level of shamelessness to say something on national TV, then act like it never happened. Trump's firing of Comey has also come under review as Mueller weighs a possible obstruction of justice case against the president. "He was insane, a real nut job", Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official.

Trump's lawyers have cited Rosenstein's involvement in Comey's firing as proof that there was no effort to obstruct justice, the Times reported.

According to published reports, McCabe allowed two FBI officials to give information to the media about a separate criminal investigation of the Clinton Foundation.

"I've talked with Director Mueller about this", Rosenstein said in an interview with The Associated Press a year ago.

On the other hand, the idea that Trump fired Comey because he broke protocol on the Hillary Clinton investigation and made her look unnecessarily bad doesn't exactly hold water, either.
