Before he was fired, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe reportedly penned memos detailing his conversations with President Donald Trump.
A source with knowledge of the matter told CNN that McCabe wrote memos documenting his conversations, although it’s unclear what is in them or the span of time they cover.
During a failed State Senate run in 2015, McCabe’s wife accepted almost $500,000 from the political action committee of then-Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-Va.) and he told CNN that Trump regularly brought up the subject.Pete Marovich/Getty/Gage Skidmore/Flickr
He said there were at least four times when Trump called his wife a “loser” or labeled her Senate run a “mistake” or “problem.” McCabe explained:
“In May, when [former FBI] Director [James] Comey was fired and I had my own interactions with the President, he brought up my wife every time I ever spoke to him. 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.”
Trump also reportedly asked McCabe who he voted for during the 2016 presidential election. The former deputy director explained given the political nature of his work, he didn’t vote because it was “prudent” he didn’t take a side.
During a congressional testimony, the former FBI director said he was worried Trump would lie about conversations and wanted a detailed record.
