  • Trump's firing of FBI head Comey triggered probe — Ex-FBI official

Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe said in interview excerpts aired Thursday that he anxious that investigations into US President Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation and possible obstruction of justice would be shut down after Trump fired FBI director James Comey.

CBS's interview with McCabe is set to air on Sunday. "These were the eight days from [Fired FBI Director James] Comey's firing to the point that Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel".

That report also indicated McCabe took the remark seriously at the time.

McCabe also said Rosenstein suggested that sympathetic Cabinet members who might join their cause included Sessions and Kelly. "McCabe was totally controlled by Comey - McCabe is Comey!"

Trump said that McCabe "gave Hillary a pass".

"We were interviewing replacements at the F.B.I".

The details of the DoJ meetings were first revealed in a New York Times report in September. "... now what happens is, [Mueller] leaves the office". Rosenstein leaves the office. McCabe had confirmed Rosenstein had offered to wear a wire when meeting with Trump.

The 25th amendment allows the vice-president and the majority of the cabinet to strip the president's powers if they determine he is unable to discharge the duties of his office. The justice department denied the allegations in 2018 and issued another rebuttal in the February 14 statement.

McCabe was sacked by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions past year, just one day before he was set to retire.

Amazon ditches NY headquarters
Gianaris said in a statement that it's time to start "a national dialogue about the perils of these types of corporate subsidies". Pritzker said he contacted the company about reconsidering Chicago, which was one of 17 finalists on Amazon's short list.

"There is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment, nor was the [deputy attorney general] in a position to consider invoking the 25th Amendment", the statement said.

The investigation, Crossfire Hurricane, was tainted with bias and potential abuse of surveillance powers.

In the clip that aired on CBS, McCabe did not address specific evidence that led him to believe Trump should be investigated personally. He asked the team to say where they were on investigations that already were open into Trump campaign associates, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and asked whether they needed to open additional cases.

Pelley said McCabe took Rosenstein's offer seriously, and "he took it to the lawyers at the Federal Bureau of Investigation to discuss it".

"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", Trump tweeted on Wednesday.

"I was very concerned that I was able to put the Russian Federation case on absolutely solid ground, in an indelible fashion".

In her 2015 campaign for Virginia's state Senate, McCabe's wife Jill had taken donations from Terry McAuliffe, a prominent Virginia Democrat "with long-standing ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton". The inspector general later issued a report about McCabe's repeated lies.

The Senate has also confirmed William Barr as Attorney-General. The backup plan mentioned in texts between then-FBI lead investigator Peter Strzok and his paramour, McCabe attorney Lisa Page, apparently was the dossier and the allegations of collusion they lead to impeachment.
