Former deputy Federal Bureau of Investigation director Andrew McCabe was concerned about remarks Rod Rosenstein reportedly made regarding the justification for James Comey's firing as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In the early afternoon of May 9, Trump fires then-FBI Director James Comey. In a televised interview, the president directly admitted he'd been planning to fire Comey - even before he received Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein'srecommendation to do so - because "of this Russian Federation thing with Trump".
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.
The multi-page letter blasted Comey over his investigation of Trump's Democratic presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton.
In the confidential memo, McCabe described a conversation he had with the deputy attorney general at the Department of Justice, in which the pair discussed another memo criticising Comey, according to a source quoted by The Associated Press on Wednesday. He regularly refers to the ongoing special counsel investigation helmed by Robert Mueller as a "witch hunt".

"I have a strong impression he conveyed to me, 'It wasn't me, boss.' And I don't think that was by saying those words; I think it was most likely by saying, 'I don't know how this s-- gets in the media or why would people talk about this kind of thing, ' words that I would fairly take as 'I, Andy, didn't do it, ' " Comey said, according to the inspector general. "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".
By the inspector general's telling, in seeking to advance his own interests, McCabe authorized two Federal Bureau of Investigation officials to talk to the Wall Street Journal about a story he believed would cast him as standing in the way of a probe of Hillary Clinton's foundation. Or is the New York Times' scoop from yesterday a bit of old news that just happened to shake loose recently?
