    WASHINGTON — Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said in an interview that aired Sunday that a "crime may have been committed" when President Donald Trump fired the head of the FBI and tried to publicly undermine an investigation into his 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 then-FBI Director James Comey.

    Disgraced former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe has provided clear evidence that in 2017 a small cabal of high-level officials inside the Department of Justice (DOJ) weighed whether to attempt to remove the duly-elected president of the United States. McCabe claims that he and others at the top of the FBI and DOJ held multiple discussions about invoking the Constitution’s 25th Amendment to declare President Trump unfit for office and install the vice president in his place. Is this proof that a rolling bloodless coup really existed within the government? McCabe himself previously provided false information to the DOJ, for...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., vowed Sunday to investigate alleged discussions at the Department of Justice about invoking the 25th Amendment as a way to oust President Trump from office and threatened to subpoena former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe if he refused to testify on the matter before the Senate. "We're going to find out what happened here and the only way I know to find out is to call the people in under oath and find out, through questioning, who's telling the truth because the underlying accusation is beyond stunning," Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested he would subpoena former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCade and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if necessary in order to get to the bottom of purported discussions at the Justice Department about invoking the 25th Amendment to try to remove President Trump from office. “How can I not, if that’s what it takes?” Mr. Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “We’re going to find out what happened here and the only way I know to find out is to call the people...

    Ever wonder why people hate lawyers? Consider Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s non-denial denial of his participation in discussions of an attempted coup against the duly elected president of the United States. The story is being given a second life thanks to the hype surrounding the rollout of a new book by Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director of the FBI. McCabe, of course, was fired after an inspector general investigation found that he leaked investigative information and then lied about it. He has been referred to the Justice Department for consideration of a false-statements prosecution. There is no doubt...

    **SNIP** CBS reporter Scott Pelley, who interviewed McCabe for Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” said Thursday that McCabe told him using the 25th Amendment was discussed and that officials were “counting noses” — or speculating on who might support such an endeavor. “There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment,” Pelley said. “And the highest levels of American law enforcement were trying to figure out what to do with the president.” In...

    The former deputy director of the FBI participated in discussions to stage a coup d’état to remove President Trump from office, leftist law professor Alan Dershowitz said last night. Dershowitz leveled the charge after Andrew McCabe, the disgraced former G-man, surfaced in a preview of an interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes, during which he admitted that he and his colleagues discussed using the 25th Amendment to bring down Trump. The amendment governs removing the president from office for reason of incapacity. McCabe and his putative co-conspirators discussed the plan just after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in May 2017.

    In a move that veritably boggles the mind, fired FBI'er Andrew McCabe has admitted his role in the – mercifully – ineffective coup against President Trump and his administration...aka government. In an interview scheduled to air on next Sunday's "60 Minutes," McCabe detailed his and his FBI co-conspirators parts in the planned, plotted and implemented attempted coup against legally-elected President Trump – using a fake Russian dossier. Mueller's and Rosenstein's parts in the scheme were for Rosenstein to appoint former FBI Director Mueller to the position of Special Counsel to investigate Trump. This position requires that a crime be listed...

    Why haven't we gone from incessantly just talking about this political scandal to actually doing something about it? While Average Americans Were Going About Their Lives Were the FBI & DoJ Planning a coup d’état? Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe—who seems to have taken part in what can only be described as an FBI and DoJ planned coup d’état to oust the president of the United States of America—will now get to boast about it on this Sunday’s CBS “60 Minutes”? How can this be? Do Free Elections exist in post-2016 America anymore?

    Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department played in spying on...

There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a...

    ( - Conversations about Rod Rosenstein wearing a wire to secretly tape the president of the United States came up more than once and were serious, former Acting Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe told CBS's Scott Pelley. McCabe, sitting for a "60 Minutes" interview, told Pelley that he and other officials also discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Donald Trump from office. Pelley appeared on the CBS "This Morning" news set Thursday to describe the "most illuminating and surprising thing" to emerge from his interview with McCabe: According to Pelley: "There were meetings at the Justice Department in which...

    Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz on Thursday said the Department of Justice’s discussions to employ the 25th Amendment to oust President Trump-- if true-- amounted to a coup. Dershowitz appeared on Fox News’ “Tuck Carlson Tonight,” to give his take on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s descriptions of Justice Department meetings where he said officials discussed ousting the president. Evoking the 25th Amendment, Dershowitz said, would a fundamental misuse of its original purpose. It was originally “about Woodrow Wilson having a stroke. It’s about a president being shot and not being able to perform his office,” Dershowitz added.

    ...he president was not even behind McCabe’s ultimate removal from his post. The former FBI deputy director was fired after a Department of Justice internal probe found that he committed gross misconduct on multiple occasions. The devastating report found that McCabe lied under oath several times. That wasn’t all. He also attempted to sabotage his own FBI colleagues for his personal leaks to the media. McCabe later excused his activity, claiming his lies under oath were a result of the “chaos inside the FBI under siege from [President] Trump and his allies.” Currently, McCabe is under a Department of Justice-authorized...

    President Trump on Thursday mocked Andrew McCabe after the former FBI deputy director revealed he opened a probe into whether Trump obstructed justice when the president fired James Comey as FBI chief in 2017 amid the Russia investigation. In a string of morning tweets, Trump wrote that the “disgraced” McCabe “pretends to be a ‘poor little Angel’ when in fact he was a big part of the Crooked Hillary Scandal & the Russia Hoax” and “a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey.” The president added that an internal watchdog report that was used to justify McCabe’s ouster was “devastating.” The report...

    Soon after speaking to President Trump about the firing of his boss James Comey, Andrew McCabe, who became the bureau's acting director, began obstruction of justice and counterintelligence investigations involving the president and his ties to Russia. In his first television interview since his own firing, McCabe tells 60 Minutes' Scott Pelley he wanted those inquiries to be documented and underway so they would be difficult to quash without raising scrutiny. "I was very concerned that I was able to put the Russia case on absolutely solid ground, in an indelible fashion," McCabe tells Pelley in the interview. "That were...

In what he described as a "feckless compromise" and "the worst possible choice afforded by the situation," McCabe says Lynch and Yates "designated career professionals in the National Security Division as decision-makers...

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe accused President Trump of acting like a mob boss and releasing a “strain of insanity,” according to a copy of his new book obtained by The Guardian. McCabe alleges in the book that Trump and White House Counsel Don McGahn offered him protection in exchange for loyalty. “The president and his men were trying to work me the way a criminal brigade would operate,” he wrote. McCabe became acting FBI director after Trump fired James Comey. He also said in the book, "The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror...
