  • McCabe Gave Mueller a Secret Memo that Could Contain Crucial Information About Trump Firing Comey: Report

That's why Trump is tweeting about it-and lying about it.

"I just fired the head of the F.B.I".

That contradicts what Trump told NBC's Lester Holt during an interview on May 11, 2017.

Prosecutors interviewed fired FBI director James Comey and are considering whether his deputy Andrew McCabe should be charged for lying to federal agents, a report suggests.

Bethesda Announces Fallout 76 - Everything You Need To Know
As we previously stated, a Fallout 5 would not be given ample amount of time to work as well as it could. Would it be the first non-Elder Scrolls or Fallout game since IHRA Professional Drag Racing 2005?

Trump ended up shelving that letter in favor of a far shorter one, but the draft has taken on new significance in the probe by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, who is examining it as he determines whether Trump's firing of Comey was part of an effort to obstruct justice, according to people with knowledge of the investigation.

The memo reportedly contains a record of McCabe's conversation with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein after President Donald Trump fired Comey.

According to the newspaper, McCabe thought Rosenstein's comment suggested that he gave cover to Trump by not mentioning Russian Federation in the statement on Comey. The Justice Department believes he lied to investigators over the Hillary Clinton email server scandal. McCabe reportedly thought this suggested that Comey's termination may be tied to the Russian Federation investigation, which raises questions of whether the president's decision constitutes obstruction of justice. President Donald Trump has frequently attacked the FBI's former No. 2 official, largely over political donations his wife took from an ally of Hillary Clinton when she ran for a seat in the Virginia legislature. McCabe asserts that Comey knew he authorized the media disclosure, and Comey claims otherwise.

Berman responded by playing Lee the clip of Trump telling Holt that "regardless of [the] recommendation" he received from the Justice Department, "he was going to fire Comey". "We have briefed him in great detail on the subjects of the investigation and what we're doing, but I'm not gonna answer about anybody in this forum".

According to published reports, McCabe allowed two FBI officials to give information to the media about a separate criminal investigation of the Clinton Foundation.

Comey has said that even though he feels "mildly nauseous" that his announcement may have impacted the election, he doesn't regret sending the letters.

In a separate tweet Thursday, Trump continued to insist that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had spied on his 2016 campaign and claimed that the media "is working overtime" to avoid reporting about it.

"He fired Comey because Comey would not, among other things, say that he wasn't a target of the investigation", Giuliani said earlier this month on Fox News "Hannity." Lee said that "based on what I know now, those are not words that I would use to describe this".
