Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wrote memos documenting his conversations with President Donald Trump before he was fired Friday, CNN reported Saturday, citing sources with knowledge of the matter.
After Comey’s dismissal, McCabe spoke to the President several times while he was acting FBI director, and Trump berated him about his wife’s failed state Senate campaign.
During an interview with CNN’s Pamela Browm, McCabe revealed that Donald Trump was completely obsessed with his wife.
“In May, when Director Comey was fired and I had my own interactions with the President, he brought up my wife every time I ever spoke to him,” McCabe told Brown.
Each time McCabe pushed back. “Of course, I disagreed with him. I don’t see my wife’s decision to try to enter public life to help her community (have) greater access to healthcare as a mistake or a problem.”
McCabe also confirmed that Trump demanded to know who he voted for in the 2016 election in their first meeting after firing former FBI Director James Comey.
It is unclear what is in McCabe’s memos and what span of time they cover.
McCabe was fired on Friday, less than 48 hours before his 50th birthday and the date he was set to retire and begin receiving his anticipated pension.
