Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe said Tuesday he hasn't gotten a subpoena or request yet to testify under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the claims he's made in his new book, but he's willing to speak if that happens.

"I look forward to cooperating with the committee," McCabe told NBC's "Today" anchor Savannah Guthrie. "We haven't received a request yet."

McCabe's credibility has been brought into question, even if he is called, but he told Guthrie that before President Donald Trump began attacking him, he enjoyed a 21-year FBI career at all levels with "absolutely not a single blemish on that career."

However, he believes Trump fired him because of the steps he took to launch an investigation on the president and his campaign, and for that reason, he is bringing a lawsuit against the Department of justice.

Meanwhile, he defended the decisions he made, and he thinks the job of protecting the United States has become more difficult under Trump.

McCabe rejected claims made by Trump on Twitter about him, but commented it has been "horrific" for him and his family to endure the "threats, the taunts, the bullying" from the president.

McCabe also denied that he discusses the use of the 25th Amendment against Trump in his book, which has become a talking point, and that he left that out specifically.

"It's become quite a distraction from the points that I am trying to make in the book," McCabe said. "I don't discuss the 25th Amendment, the allegations about the 25th Amendment in the book for a really important reason."
