The White House Goes Hard At McCabe, As Rosenstein Exits

President Trump is continuing to vent on Twitter about former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein– and he’s now accusing them of illegal and treasonous acts. The President started the day unloading about McCabe’s “60 Minutes” interview.

McCabe said that Justice Department officials were discussing the possibility of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office if the Vice President and cabinet determined him unfit to serve. He also discussed investigations into Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey and possible links with Russia. Trump blasted McCabe – saying he was fired and added, “looks like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught.” More tweets followed.

And while McCabe hasn’t reacted, Rosenstein appears to be…as word broke overnight that he’s planning to leave his post in mid-March. An announcement on a nomination for his replacement could occur as soon as this week.
