President Donald Trump blasted “disgraced” former Acting Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, who said this week that he ordered an investigation into Trump before his firing.
McCabe, who was fired by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions last March, said in an interview for “60 Minutes” shared by CBS News on Thursday that he ordered an investigation into whether Trump had obstructed justice after the president fired former FBI Director James Comey.
"I was very concerned that I was able to put the Russia case on absolutely solid ground, in an indelible fashion," he said. "That were I removed quickly, or reassigned or fired, that the case could not be closed or vanish in the night without a trace."
Trump fired back at McCabe on Twitter Thursday morning:
“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 - a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey. I.G. report on McCabe was devastating. Part of “insurance policy” in case I won...."
He added: “....Many of the top FBI brass were fired, forced to leave, or left. McCabe’s wife received BIG DOLLARS from Clinton people for her campaign - he gave Hillary a pass. McCabe is a disgrace to the FBI and a disgrace to our Country. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
