Trump Attacks McCabe & Rosenstein for ‘Treasonous’ Acts

President Donald Trump on Monday accused his own deputy attorney general of being a traitor in an unhinged early morning Twitter rant.

Referencing former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s interview with “60 Minutes” on Sunday, Trump lashed out at both McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who suggested wearing a wire to capture audio of Trump obstructing justice.

“Wow, so many lies by now disgraced acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe,” the president wrote. “He was fired for lying, and now his story gets even more deranged. He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught. There is a lot of explaining to do to the millions of people who had just elected a president who they really like and who has done a great job for them with the Military, Vets, Economy and so much more. This was the illegal and treasonous ‘insurance policy’ in full action!”

McCabe said in the interview that that a “crime may have been committed” when Trump fired FBI Director James Comey and tried to undermine the investigation into his 2916 campaign’s ties to Russia.

McCabe also said in the interview with “60 Minutes” that the FBI had good reason to open a counterintelligence investigation into whether Trump was in league with Russia, and therefore a possible national security threat, following the May 2017 firing of Comey.

“And the idea is, if the president committed obstruction of justice, fired the director of the of the FBI to negatively impact or to shut down our investigation of Russia’s malign activity and possibly in support of his campaign, as a counterintelligence investigator you have to ask yourself, “Why would a president of the United States do that?” McCabe said.

He added: “So all those same sorts of facts cause us to wonder is there an inappropriate relationship, a connection between this president and our most fearsome enemy, the government of Russia?”

Asked whether Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was onboard with the obstruction and counterintelligence investigations, McCabe replied, “Absolutely.”
