Ex-FBI Deputy Director McCabe wrote memo on Comey firing

That's why Trump is tweeting about it-and lying about it. "The Corrupt Mainstream Media loves to keep pushing that narrative, but they know it is not true!"

Berman countered by noting that Russian Federation was an undeniable factor in Trump's decision, based on his own words and the memo from Rod Rosenstein saying Russian Federation was part of the justification to fire Comey.

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.

McCabe, who became acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director after Comey's dismissal, was sacked in March in a move he suggested at the time was "because of the role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath of the firing of James Comey", Business Insider reported. In this memo, McCabe, who was sacked by Trump in March, described a conversation last May with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about a memo Rosenstein was drafting about Comey's mismanagement of the F.B.I.

Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation was cited as the official reason for his termination.

The Times reported that McCabe had turned in his memo to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether Moscow colluded with President Donald Trump's campaign to meddle in the 2016 US election. 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. Those aides surely will have been interviewed by the time special counsel Robert S. Mueller III completes his reports. His team is investigating whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election and whether the president sought to obstruct that inquiry through actions including the firing of Comey last May.

McCabe has insisted that Comey knew that he authorized the disclosures to the media.

Let me take you back to early May 2017.

"It looks like two key members of the deep state are now turning on each other", Hannity said of Comey and McCabe. There's been some reporting that the leaks were coming from current or former federal investigators in NY, whom, it's been speculated, have remained close to Rudy Giuliani.

But even though his talking point had just been debunked live on national television, Lee forged ahead with insisting that Comey's firing was really about the Clinton email investigation. "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".
