McCabe Kept Notes

News  |  Mar 17, 2018

Like former FBI Director James Comey, just-fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe kept contemporaneous notes about his interactions with President Trump.

CNN reports McCabe has turned those notes over to Special Counsel Robert Mueller

Following his firing Friday, McCabe told CNN in an interview that he had four interactions with the President last May, while he was acting FBI director.

McCabe revealed that he had three in-person interactions and one phone call with Trump, in which the President berated him each time about his wife's failed Virginia Senate campaign.


"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 CNN. "Of course, I disagreed with him."

McCabe also confirmed that the President asked him who he voted for in the 2016 election, which was reported back in January and which Trump denied.

After President Trump celebrated McCabe's firing on Twitter, Comey responded with a tweet of his own, teasing his upcoming tell-all book and tour scheduled for April 17th.
