We’ve had so many blockbuster stories during President Trump’s term, it’s easy to get kind of numb to them. But we shouldn’t. Some allegations against this President are truly extraordinary. Like this: The ex-acting FBI director thinks it’s possible the President of the United States is a Russian asset.
Andrew McCabe, who took over running the FBI after James Comey was fired, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that last night. McCabe said it’s why he took the mind-boggling step of opening an obstruction of justice investigation against Trump after Comey was fired. McCabe believes Trump is undermining the country’s top law enforcement agencies for political gain. White House counselor Kellyanne Conway dismissed McCabe and his allegations, calling him “a liar and a leaker.”
But that wasn’t the day’s only bombshell. The New York Times reported that the President late last year asked then-acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker to put a Trump ally in charge of the Michael Cohen investigation, which is led by the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. The Times said there’s no evidence Whitaker acted on this alleged request, and Trump denied the report when asked about it by a reporter.
