Andrew McCabe’s interview with Scott Pelley of 60 Minutes will be broadcast tonight, and in that interview, he admits he lied to Congress. He testified before Congress over the firing of James Comey and at that time, he said: “You know, it was completely within the President’s authority to take the steps that he did. We all understand that.” But now he admits that he started an obstruction investigation just days after Comey’s firing. That makes his previous statement a lie. If everyone knew the president was justified, why did he start an investigation?
Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will appear on ’60 Minutes’ tonight in his first national interview since leaving the White House.
CBS News Correspondent Scott Pelley teased the interview on Thursday.
According to Pelley Andrew McCabe says the FBI and DOJ Democrats discussed wearing wires several times to spy on President Trump.
Andrew McCabe also told Scott Pelley he ordered an obstruction of justice probe into President Donald Trump after he fired FBI Director James Comey.
But this IS NOT what Andrew McCabe told Congress under oath!
Andrew McCabe spoke to the Senate Intelligence Committee the day AFTER he opened up an obstruction of justice investigation on Trump and two days after James Comey was fired.
Via the Senate Intelligence Committee website:
Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe: “You know, it was completely within the President’s authority to take the steps that he did. We all understand that.”
