You know your living in strange times when a man under criminal investigation can sue the President of the United States for maligning his character. And here we thought that Donald Trump was just pointing out the obvious about Andrew McCabe.
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is a bit unhappy these days. Fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions just before he could collect his full retirement package, he is now under criminal investigation. Yet, somehow, McCabe is blaming President Trump for his troubles.
Last week, the Justice Department Office of Inspector General issued a scathing rebuke of McCabe. The OIG report concluded that he was less than forthcoming in his sworn testimony to Congress. More specifically, he lied about leaking to the press about the Clinton investigation.
Responding to the news, Trump called the findings a “disaster” and slammed the deputy director. “DOJ just issued the McCabe report, which is a total disaster,” Trump tweeted. “He LIED! LIED! LIED! McCabe was totally controlled by Comey— McCabe is Comey!! No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!”
