Andrew McCabe's attorney criticizes Trump tweets after firing
WASHINGTON (AP) —
Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe's attorney is criticizing President Donald Trump's weekend tweets as evidence that McCabe's firing was improper.
In a tweet Sunday, Michael Bromwich says McCabe won't be responding to Trump's "childish, defamatory, disgusting & false" tweets. But he says the tweets confirm a "corrupted" process in which McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions last Friday. Bromwich promises the "whole truth will come out in due course."
Over the weekend, Trump called McCabe's firing "a great day for democracy" and blasted special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe as politically biased.
McCabe has been a frequent target of Trump's anger and criticism. The Associated Press reported that McCabe's memos have been provided to Mueller, who's investigating possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia.
