Prosecutors question Comey for probe into McCabe

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

"When I made a decision to just do it, I said to myself, I said, 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, '" Trump said in the interview.

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

Despite McCabe's suspicions about Rosenstein providing cover for Trump's dismissal of Comey, The Times reported that someone briefed on the contents of the McCabe memo said the president's suggestion Russian Federation was mentioned simply referred to Trump asking Rosenstein to note he was not personally being investigated in the Russian Federation probe.

"The FBI's OPR then reviewed the report and underlying documents and issued a disciplinary proposal recommending the dismissal of Mr. McCabe".

"Regardless of recommendation, I was going to fire Comey", Trump told Holt of his decision to fire Comey on May 9, 2017. In other words, his current lies are further evidence to support a possible charge of obstruction of justice. The Justice Department appointed Mueller after Comey's termination and the revelation that Trump had asked Comey to end the federal investigation into his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

Trump's 25% steel tariff angers world leaders and business
Last week, Trump ordered the Commerce Department to conduct a national security investigation into foreign auto imports. Nucor Corp., the biggest USA steel producer, rose 0.6 per cent to US$64.49.

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. But Comey has disputed that claim, and has said that he could be a witness against McCabe if the investigation resulted in criminal charges and a trial. 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.

"So, you got a group there, a lynching mob, so let them do their job and, boy, we're ready to knock the heck out of you with our report, which will be authoritative", Giuliani said.

A batch of FBI records related to President Trump's father sought under the Freedom of Information Act was released October 30, while some FBI Clinton Foundation-related records were published on November 1, 2016. Still, one consideration lingers: It takes an incredible level of shamelessness to say something on national TV, then act like it never happened. 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. Hillary Clinton got that.

The report doesn't list out Mueller's personal salary, but Peter Carr, spokesman for the special counsel's office, said he is paid the same as any USA attorney.
