‘Absolutely’ would make same decision to investigate Trump: Ex-FBI official McCabe
Andrew McCabe, his new book, the threat, how the FBI protects America in the age of Terror and Trump takes it behind the scenes at the launch of the Mueller investigation. Welcome to this week for Manchester Hoover. I don’t even know what that means. It’S not the first time that I’ve had to listen to the president’s a bizarre and untrue things about me. So it’s unfortunate that this is getting a little bit routine, but I will say you know I don’t think, there’s anything sad or unfortunate about speaking truth to and telling the story that you lived in the things you saw and heard and the reasons behind the decision You made and that’s what I tried to do with the book discussion. What should we expect from Robert Mueller at narrow by the book prosecutor reporting or someone who senses he hasn’t brought a responsibility to the public from Robert Mueller is an honest, independent assessment of the work that they’ve done? How much detail he chooses to go into to convey to the Department of Justice is a great question. I hope they lean on the detailed side. This is not a normal investigation by evaluation, it’s one that I sent the department Congress and the public have an enormous interest in finding out just exactly what they did in so many ways, including the president of the Hillary Clinton investigation list. All that information about her is you heard understood, say James criticized, for that was that the wrong decision by James Comey set of sum-sum reconsideration of those things that we did and I think I’m pretty clear about it in the book. I think that that decision was not well thought. I think we underestimated the kind of political toxicity of the environment that we were launching conclusions into and I think we overestimated our ability and Jim’s ability to convince people of the great work that was done. I’M not sure that Jim’s decision to announce it in July is a precedent. However, I think that it is a very concerning and now recent president, the volume of information that the FBI turned over to Congress in the wake of after the investigation was concluded. That is something that concerns me greatly at that time, and I thought I know this is a. This is a practice that will be hard to step away from you made the decision to investigate presently open investigation into the present. Since we can clean from Congressman Mark Meadows, who says you made it sending a mission wan na put up his tweet right there, where you said that you said it was because of suspicious Behavior by the president, intercept or supporting other secret evidence cars, the power, I’m Not sure what he’s referring to their, but I can tell you that the information that was in our hands at the time, much of which is publicly known, caused us great concern. This was the recommendation from the investigative team and it was ultimately my decision to authorize the opening of the case, and I did that because at the time the facts clearly indicated that we had inarticulable basis to believe that a crime may have been committed and that National Security might exist, we hadn’t included that either of those two things that happened, but we were certainly in the place that we needed to investigate.. What grounds do you have to Sue and what are you up to get from him? Well, I can’t talk to any great detail about the lawsuit I’ll. Certainly let the pleading speak for themselves, it’ll be an action against the Department of Justice, primarily in challenge, challenging the circumstances of my of my firing. It of course, derives from the Inspector General report. A report that I deeply disagree with report that was the result of a process that I don’t think anyone has ever seen before. I certainly hadn’t excuse me. There’S no doubt in my mind that the president’s clear desire impacted that process. The president is talking about removing me from months before I ever interacted with the Inspector General. He made his desires perfectly clear on his own Twitter feed. Are the Inspector General delivered that result Andrew McCabe? Thank you very much.
