💥Meeting w/ Trump after his sudden firing of FBI Director Comey was so concerning, Acting director McCabe opened an investigation into the President’s ties to Russia quickly to assure "the case could not be closed or vanish in the night without a trace." washingtonpost.com/world/national…
“I was speaking to the man who had…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 recalling 1st meeting with Trump
💥McCabe: “The president and his men were trying to work me the way a criminal brigade would operate.” He describes Oval O meeting reminiscent of Russia mafia talking of a protection scheme: He felt Trump pressed him to do his FBI bidding if he didn’t want to be fired like Comey.
Like McCabe, @Comey too described meetings w/ Trump reminiscent of talking to a mafia boss. Recall Trump got Comey alone in the White House, pressed him to go easy on Flynn, and asked for loyalty. Comey refused both. Hence his book titled "Higher Loyalty"
FYI #Rosenstein disputes #McCabe's explosive account of DOJ discussing the 25th Amendment to remove Trump in the days after Comey firing in May 2017. Doesn't exactly deny talks happened. Adds NEWS: Rosenstein removed McCabe from participating in the #TrumpRussia investigation.
