Andrew McCabe says its "possible" Trump is a Russian asset

Andrew McCabe says its

No senior Republican congressional figure raised any concerns over the legality of the investigation.

Clapper doubled down on his statement Wednesday morning, emphasizing that he believed it is more likely Trump was "unwitting" in his possible role as a Russian asset.

The FBI investigation into President Trump appears to have relied in part or entirely on the infamous Trump-Russia dossier that was produced by opposition researchers (including former British spy Christopher Steele) who were paid directly or indirectly by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Earlier this week, fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe told 60 Minutes there were discussions to remove President Trump from office and said it was his duty to solidify the Russian Federation investigation before he was sacked. A plan was then created, according to the person, who would not provide specifics.

It's another bombshell comment from McCabe, which comes days after he outlined on Sunday to CBS the reasons top USA officials made a decision to open a counterintelligence probe and obstruction of justice investigation into the President. Although not a single piece of evidence has surfaced to justify the FBI investigation, McCabe, an apparent conspiracy theorist, still insists that there is a chance the president is entirely beholden to Russian Federation.

Asked if Mr Rosenstein wanted to "get rid of" the the President "one way or another", Mr McCabe said: "I can't confirm that, but what I can say is the Deputy Attorney-General was definitely very concerned, about the President, about his capacity, and about his intent at that point in time". "That's our job. That's our job to prepare for eventualities", he told host Stephen Colbert.

"Yeah, I do agree as awesome and stunning and depressing as that is", he said. "I'm really not sure it will, and the investigation, when completed, could turn out to be quite anti-climactic and not draw a conclusion about that", he said.

McCabe said that Trump may have committed the crime of obstruction of justice by firing Comey. "That were I removed quickly, or reassigned or fired, that the case could not be closed or vanish in the night without a trace". But McCabe's comments do match with remarks made by the president during a high-profile summit with Putin in Helsinki a year ago.

McCabe himself was sacked previous year after the Justice Department's inspector general concluded that he had misled officials about his role in a news media disclosure.
