McCabe: Rosenstein Was Absolutely Not Joking About Wearing a Wire


CBS is set to air a full-length interview with fired and disgraced former Acting Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe this Sunday, and if the preview is anything to go by, it promises to be extremely enlightening. McCabe, who was fired a day short of retirement when the internal DOJ watchdog accused him of leaking information to the media and lying about it to investigators, told 60 Minutes’ Scott Pelley that it was his decision to initiate an obstruction of justice investigation into President Donald Trump.

“I was very concerned that I was able to put the Russia case on absolutely solid ground, in an indelible fashion,” McCabe said. “That were I removed quickly, or reassigned or fired, that the case could not be closed or vanish in the night without a trace.”

McCabe said his decision to launch the investigation was made in the days after Trump fired his former boss, James Comey.

“I wanted to make sure that our case was on solid ground and if somebody came in behind me and closed it and tried to walk away from it, they would not be able to do that without creating a record of why they made that decision,” McCabe said.

Pelley appeared on CBS to discuss the interview on Thursday morning, telling the hosts of “The Morning” that McCabe had provided “surprising” details of what transpired inside the Department of Justice in the days after Comey was sent packing.

“There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment,” Pelley said. “These were the eight days from Comey’s firing to the point that Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel. And the highest levels of American law enforcement were trying to figure out what do with the president.”

Pelley said that McCabe discussed reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had offered to wear a wire in communications with the president. Previously, Rosenstein and other DOJ officials have dismissed this as a “joke” the Deputy AG had told in a single meeting and was never meant to be taken seriously.

“McCabe in interview says no, it came up more than once and it was so serious that he took it to the lawyers at the FBI to discuss it,” Pelley said.

We suppose there is no revelation that will ever cause Democrats or liberal Trump-haters to change their minds about the narrative here, but it defies belief that anyone could look at this situation and not see that Trump is the victim of a deep state witch hunt. Trump exercises his constitutional authority to fire the FBI director and suddenly the DOJ is talking about spying on him with a recording device? Having him thrown out of office on the basis of the 25th Amendment?

Who ARE these people? How DARE they admit these things without any sense of regret or shame?

If this fiasco concludes with any result other than Rosenstein, Comey, McCabe, and others behind bars, our country may never fully heal from this miscarriage of justice.

  1. Looks like the swamp rats were hard at play. Rosenstein should be charged right along with the other swamp critters for plotting to overthrow the government. Hopefully, the new DOJ boss will clean the hen house out!

    • What a snake in the grass Rosenstein was! Trump should have fired Comey on day one, and should have appointed either Giuliani or Christie for Attorney General. He let his gratitude towards Sessions blur his judgement since he was the first Senator to support his candidacy. But you dont need a Southern Mild Mannered Gentleman in that job, you need a NY/NJ down and dirty SOB!!

    • Now is the time for the GOP Senate to start investigations and file charges against these people. If nothing else it will cost them money and possibly ruin their lives like they did to Flynn.
      And when Meuller concludes his witch hunt he should be prosecuted as well.Trump sould pardon all of those implicated by this witch hunt which is much more just than Clinton pardoning drug trafficers.

  2. FBI and DOJ, as well as MANY RINOS were “all in” for an HRC presidency. Status quo. Don’t have to DO anything in my elected position, just have to show up once in a while. (That’s what p!sses me off so much: When I get a job, I have to meet strict standards of performance and results. Otherwise, people may actually DIE. These sens and reps — many of them — can’t DO ANYTHING, so they find out what “the public” wants to hear and is either afraid of, pissed at or curiously susceptible to and climb up the tallest soapbox and spew LIES and FEAR to the gum-chewing gawkers. Sickening!) So, when Donald Trump was busting his ass going to rallies, talking to the AMERICAN worker and his family, defying the idiot other candidates, calling them what they ARE, that is OWNED and totally SELF-interested, learning and doing his research, spending HIS MONEY and showing up MUCH BIGGER than the spoiled, egotistical “also-rans”, they got SCARED! REALLY SCARED. And this is what happened. Bullshit! Sedition! Character assassination! And complete obstructionism! God Listened to our prayers, and provided a MAN who listens to us, knows his duty and DOES IT! Will anyone on the opposition side ever ADMIT this was the evil that it continues to be? Probably not. But MY President is a righteous man and he DOES HIS JOB! God Bless America! God Save President Trump!

  3. Everyone involved should be charged and Mueller set the time frame they should do 20 to 25 years. That is what he is giving Manaford just for lying. This is a lot more serious than a memory lapse or a lie as Mueller said it was. Also, they should never be an early release and no Presidential pardon and loss of benefits. Have to send a clear message to federal employees never to do something like this again.

  4. What we are seeing here is treason, there is NO other word for what they have done. Their goal was to get rid of Trump and in the process overthrow our existing form of government. They are not alone in this, far from it. The swamp is much deeper than anyone imagined and it is in BOTH political parties !
    The swamp is not dead, it’s not even badly injured, just dented a bit.
    If American citizens do not back Trump in saving what’s left of America, we will be finished as any kind of a free nation. The choice is ours, we are fighting for the very soul of America !

  5. The very rich and powerful who owns people like McCabe and that little scumbag Rosenstein Nazi, are the very ones pulling the strings to destroy Trump as they do not want to be exposed! They are doing everything and anything they can to prevent being exposed to the American people of what they are and what their real plans are. John Kennedy seven days before he died, talked about a plan he discovered to enslave the people of this country and then he was killed !

  6. Arrest McCabe, Comey, Rosenstein, Strzok, Page,HRC, Mueller and all involved for treason, overthrow of the U.S.Government. Somebody in the DOJ, get some sack and get moving on this. Now!!!!

  7. These might be the only words out of McCabes mouth that I believe. He is right, Rosenstein is in this mess right up to his eyeballs.

  8. I would like to see McCabe or Rosenstein looking for a liter sentence come out and say who the leader is behind this mess and I bet it is someone that was the leader of the DemocRAT Party. I do not believe these idiots did it on their own, they had to much at stake. It took someone very high up to convince these federal employees to commit the criminal acts.

    • It was Hillary Clinton who started this whole treasonable affair. She needs to be arrested and thrown in jail along with the rest of these traitors. The attempted overthrow of a duly elected President is TREASON. And all those involved need to pay the full penalty of that treasonous crime. And I mean the death penalty for all of them.

  9. McCabe knows he is toast …. and at least has some common sense to > NOT GO DOWN ALONE <.

    He will take the other Swamp Rats down with him, and that is about the only GOOD thing he could do.

    EXPOSE THEM ALL!

  10. This is the truth finally revealed to us, the American citizens that everyone of these men and women involved with this Russian hoax are guilty in my mind of Treason. They must receive the appropriate punishment for the dishonor of their oath and their office. Each used their position in various attempts to dismantle the election of Donald J. Trump as OUR POTUS and have him removed from office. as far I am concerned, we need to clean out the sewage that has become our National Security Forces and thin the FBI, CIA and Attorney Generals offices to the bare minimum. Too many cooks in the kitchen make for a very bad stew that nobody can stomach.

  11. They should all stand trial for treason. If nobody up there has enough balls to do their job to protect the President and America maybe all us deploreables will have to defend our President and our Freedoms.

  12. IN MY OPINION
    I have yelled from the roof tops to no avail. I maintain there is something very SINISTER going on in our Government. I want to know who is the Puppet Master behind all this.
    Trump was never supposed to win. It was not realized until it was too late that he would. The American people were tired of being manipulated. They wanted TRUTH and transparency; ergo Trump. He wasn’t there to make friends or money. He couldn’t be bought.
    Right from the start it was obvious CNN was the front runner. Their negative reporting and bias interviews started them in a down fall. Meanwhile, FOX was leaning a little in the opposite direction but still was reporting responsibly. Their ratings soared. Then one day FOX unexpectedly went dark. After quite some time had passed FOX was gingerly coming back but now they were supportive of CNN. They stayed pretty much down low. Soon the media, in general began spewing the same opinionated style of reporting. It became blatantly obvious that this bias was permeating. As all this was going on; it was equally obvious anyone close to or supportive of; became objects to be used to rein in Trump. Still steadfast, a campaign was initiated to investigate everything Trump had ever done, was doing or planned to do.and it became suspect. Every positive achievement was used to throw accusations and doubt.
    Oddly the Democrats especially Nancy and her lap dog began to passionately object to anything Trump wanted to do. Some had previously agreed with same. The word “Impeachment” was tossed around even though they had no grounds. Nothing seemed to be working. Trump still was winning.
    Then the theater became darkened. While ignoring citizen’s needs a rally began to take care of people who were not legally allowed in our Country. Immigrants were trying to force their way in without proper procedure. Some due to exile but many more were admittedly looking for a better job and benefits. The American dream that masses of Americans had not achieved. An unbelievable amount of people (Vets also) were homeless, kids went to bed hungry and medical attention badly needed was not available..Far too many were involved with drug and human trafficking and had heinous criminal pasts. They tried to use women and children as pawns to enter the USA.
    At the same time, very strangely, Politicians with Socialistic ideology and radical ideas were voted into office. The saga continues….
    BE AFRAID BE VERY AFRAID!!

  13. Tiffani, I agree with you ! I am 72 years old and have never tried to gain an office or really to influence people. I have just carried on with my working life, and have now found myself in an awful position. My wife and children and grand children are going to out live me and find themselves living in an awful condition controlled by those creatures that you speak of. If anyone can tell me what I might do to keep this from happening PLEASE let me know. Sometimes I think about just stepping out but that would leave my loved ones to have to live under the circumstances that I describe. If I thought that it would make any difference I would drive up to Washington and cause some real heart rending for the traitors but I am only a single guy and doing such a thing by myself would not make any difference. I suppose that the only thing that I can rely on is a second coming to remove all of the trash from our land.

    • I know a lot of people don’t believe this, but the Prophets all over the world do. GOD chose Donald J. Trump to be our President “for a time such as this”. “To do for the United States what Netanyahu did for Israel”. Keep the Faith. GOD, whether you believe it or not, is in charge. Even though at the moment is doesn’t appear so. But as you can see the onion is beginning to peal, and McCabe is beginning to do what he said he would do. If he goes down, he’s taking them all with him. And it appears that is exactly what he is doing.

  14. I never have seen in my life in 86 years, how the President of United States has been intimidated, not only in his Political views, including his personal life and business prior of being the President. This political vendetta is getting into your private and personal life, including your family. This is wrong, pretty soon it will turn into the Civil War. Believe me, there are so many Patriots is willing to defend this country – fighting these Socialist or the Communist in the Government.

    Take good care of the Military, and their needs, for they will be your only allies when it comes into worst
    situation. These country is turning into SOCIALISM ONCE THE DEMOCRATS HAVE THEIR WAYS. I CAN’T RECALL OR MET A VETERAN WHO FOUGHT FOR SOCIALISM. 37 THOUSANDS DIED IN KOREA, AND 76 THOUSAND DIED IN VIET NAM AND THEY DIED FOR NOTHING. UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF THE DEMOCRAT ADMINISTRATION.

    WHEN THE ECONOMY OF THIS COUNTRY IS DOWN, THE SOLUTION OF THE DEMOCRATS IS TO INVOLVED INTO THE WAR TO IMPROVED THE ECONOMY AS WAR IS THE BIG BUSINESS AT THE EXPENSE OF THE POOR PEOPLE, THE FARM BOYS, AND THE FOREIGN ALLIES. THEN THE VETERANS WERE NEGLECTED AND MADE IT HARD FOR THEM TO GET THEIR BENEFITS, ESPECIALLY THE MINORITY RACE.
