"I've speculated in the past that the way Putin behaves is to treat President Trump as an asset".
"We can't lose sight of the fact that McCabe has also opened himself up to credibility issues by lying to the Inspector General", he said.
While promoting his book, The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump, former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe stopped by Anderson Cooper 360, where he spoke at length about the investigation into Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation. The idea that the president could be involved obstruction of justice for firing a subordinate was fully debunked in a June 8, 2018 memo that Barr prepared for Rosenstein.
McCabe's emphasis on the lack of pushback from the Gang of Eight - a bipartisan group of leaders in the house House and Senate - appeared created to insulate him from the criticism, repeatedly leveled against him by the president and White House allies, that the investigation was politically motivated. Taking that idea to its logical conclusion means that the Russians wanted McCabe to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In regards to North Korea, Trump allegedly said in a meeting that he did not believe the Asian nation possessed missiles capable of striking the US because Putin had told him it did not.

"President Putin says it's not Russian Federation".
Trump was so fixated on McCabe's book tour allegations that he was still tweeting about the matter at 11:05 a.m. on Tuesday - just 25 minutes before he was scheduled to meet privately with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. He told Cooper that it was not something he was comfortable talking about, saying it "could go to ongoing investigative matters". He described having conversations with Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein concerning Trump's alleged obstruction of justice. "Rod did the right thing by putting the right person in charge of that investigation". In addition to an in-depth interview with The Atlantic's Natasha Bertrand late last week, McCabe was seen on ABC's "The View" today-and Meghan McCain questioned him aggressively about the events of 2017.
He said the bureau thought it was "possible" that Trump was working on behalf of Russian Federation, and opening a case signified that the FBI was treating the matter as a national security threat.
As he did in his book, McCabe also had unsparing criticism for former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "I mean, it's - it all seems to get more suspicious every day".
