Trump insists he didn't fire Comey over Russian Federation probe, contradicting himself

And there's a DOJ policy ordering that it stay quiet about investigations that could influence an election in the weeks leading up to election day.

Hannity said members of the "Trump-hating press" were "very wrong" in their recent analysis of McCabe and Comey.

And in fact, when I chose to just do it, I said to myself, 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation, is a made up story'.

Horowitz has accused McCabe of misleading investigators. Those emails, though, were in reference to a different Wall Street Journal story about donations McCabe's wife had received from a political action committee controlled by Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton ally, McCabe's lawyer has acknowledged.

McCabe sought ethics counseling when he became deputy director in February 2016, which is when he first had any oversight into the Clinton email probe and well after his wife's campaign ended. McCabe has argued that the Justice Department's actions against him, including his firing, are retaliatory for his work on the Russian Federation investigation. The story confirmed a separate investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

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.

The Inspector General is probing communications between Peter Kadzik and John Podesta, who have been friends since both were at Georgetown Law.

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.

Ethics experts who are skeptical that Kadzik violated DOJ policies have pointed out that he wasn't using his government email, and that he was highlighting only publicly available information. "We will be demanding a leaks investigation".

The Times reported that McCabe had turned in his memo to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether Moscow colluded with President Donald Trump's campaign to meddle in the 2016 USA election.

Sen. Lee wasn't the only Republican member of Congress from Utah who went on CNN on Thursday and tried to gaslight the country about Trump's statements. Their release was also promoted on an FBI Twitter account.

"Well, it was also about the Hillary investigation", Lee replied. Rather than muddy the issue, Trump continues to display a pattern of obstruction, which includes cooking up phony excuses for firing Comey and, as he did in the Thursday morning tweet, trying to edit out incriminating statements.
