McCabe’s Spokeswoman Says His Words Have Been ‘Taken Out of Context’

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe confirmed to CBS News’s Scott Pelley this week that, yes, he did green light an obstruction of justice probe against President Trump because he was “concerned” by reports that the president had been elected with the help of the Russian government. His concern grew after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

During his “60 Minutes” interview, McCabe also noted that he was aware of former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s supposed joke that he wear a wire during conversations with Trump. The DOJ also suggested invoking the 25th amendment to remove him from office.
