During an interview on “60 Minutes,” former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe hints at “inappropriate relationship” between Trump and Russia.
Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe hinted at an “inappropriate relationship” between President Donald Trump and Russia during a wide-ranging interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” that has already sparked calls for a congressional investigation.
Speaking to “60 Minutes” correspondent Scott Pelley, McCabe said the FBI had reasonable cause to open a counterintelligence investigation into Trump’s connection with the Russian government, a potential national security threat, following the firing of then-FBI Director James Comey in May 2017.
He also said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was “not joking” when he offered to wear a wire into the White House to “collect evidence” into Trump’s motivation for firing Comey.
