Andrew McCabe: FBI had reason to investigate Trump

McCabe Rosenstein offered to wear a wire into WH

Top US official discussed Trump removal in 2017, says ex-FBI chief

Trump did not appear to back up his claim with any evidence and it is unclear where the president would have obtained that information.

In the interview aired on Sunday, ex-acting Federal Bureau of Investigation chief Andrew McCabe said talks had been held in 2017 about invoking a clause that can remove a president deemed unfit.

Andrew McCabe said invoking the 25th Amendment of the US Constitution was raised by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein after Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey on 9 May 2017.

Graham added that he also plans to subpoena both McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if they won't voluntarily agree to testify before the committee. Vets. Economy and so much more.

Those actions, including a separate request by Mr Trump that the FBI end an investigation into his first national adviser, Michael Flynn, made the FBI concerned that the president was illegally trying to obstruct the Russian Federation probe.

With Trump's tweets on Monday, the White House has positiioned itself as saying both that McCabe shouldn't be believed and that his claims are credible enough to be seen as describing a soft coup attempt.

A clip of that part of the interview was run early Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation" show, the first time McCabe's actual comments on the explosive subject have been aired.

What's the background to this?

Reports of the discussions of invoking the 25th Amendment and of Rosenstein wearing a wire were reported in The New York Times.

Responding to McCabe's interview, the White House told "60 Minutes" he "was fired in disgrace from the Federal Bureau of Investigation for lying" and that "everyone knows he has no credibility".

"Rod raised the issue and discussed it with me in the context of thinking about how many other cabinet officials might support such an effort", said McCabe, who has a book coming out, "The Threat". So through good reporting by '60 Minutes, ' there's an allegation by the acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director at the time that the deputy attorney general was basically trying to do an administrative coup, take the president down by the 25th Amendment process.

"Discussion of the 25th Amendment was simply".

"I believe I was sacked because I opened a case against the president of the United States", he said.

As CNN previously reported, Rosenstein denies he pursued any recording, and a source in the room for these conversations said Rosenstein was being sarcastic. "It was a head-spinning moment, but this is beyond than just getting the attention of a busy and maybe distracted president, this is about how do we impart wisdom and knowledge and the best of our intelligence assessments to someone who chooses to believe our adversaries over our intelligence professionals?"

"Put together, these circumstances were articulable facts that indicated that a crime may have been committed", McCabe said.
