Andrew McCabe Feared White House Would Shutdown Russia Probe

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe continues to make his media rounds discussing his concerns about President Trump and the Russia probe.

McCabe has already confirmed that there was an investigation into President Trump and he was “very concerned” about the future of the investigation.

In his CBS’ “60 Minutes” interview, McCabe states the investigation started upon the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Remember, eight days of Comey’s firing, Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed.

McCabe met with President Trump the same day Comey was fired.

“I was speaking to the man who had just run for the presidency, and won the election for the presidency, and who might have done so with the aid of the government of Russia, our most formidable adversary on the world stage and that was something that troubled me greatly,” McCabe said.

As a result, McCabe met with the investigative team to discuss moving forward the Russia investigation.

“I think the next day, I met with the team investigating the Russia cases, and I asked the team to go back and conduct an assessment to determine where are we with these efforts and what steps do we need to take going forward.”

“I was very concerned that I was able to put the Russia case on absolutely solid ground in an indelible fashion that were I removed quickly or reassigned or fired, that the case could not be closed or vanish in the night without a trace,” he told Scott Pelley.

“I wanted to make sure that our case was on solid ground, and if somebody came in behind me and closed it and tried to walk away from it, they were not be able to do that without creating a record why they’d made that decision.”

President Trump of course runs to Twitter to discredit McCabe..

“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,” Trump wrote.

“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!”
