Virginia voting records show that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe chose to vote in the 2016 GOP primary, but did not vote in the general election, CNN reports.

The news comes in the aftermath of a report that President Donald Trump asked McCabe who he voted for, the answer to which was he didn't, The Washington Post reported.

Though Trump denied asking McCabe that question, CNN's reporting backs up McCabe's reported answer — he did not vote in the 2016 general election.

Primary voting in Virginia is open to anybody, however voters must choose one to vote in if both parties have a contested race, CNN reports.

McCabe chose to vote in the GOP primary, and Sen. Marco Rubio defeated Trump in Loudoun County, McCabe's county, by 6,000 votes, CNN reported.

Obviously, there's no record of for whom McCabe voted.

Trump had been leery of McCabe while he was acting director of the FBI after the president fired James Comey.

Trump keeps linking McCabe to being a closet supporter of Hillary Clinton after McCabe's wife received a donation in 2015 from the super PAC of then-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

"McCabe got more than $500,000 from essentially Hillary Clinton, and is he investigating Hillary Clinton?" Trump told reporters Wednesday. "Now Terry is Hillary."
