McCabe and Rosenstein quarreled over recusals in front of Mueller

McCabe and Rosenstein quarreled over recusals in front of Mueller

Former FBI Director Andrew McCabe, whose termination triggered allegations of retribution, is accusing the bureau of stalling the publication of his book, "The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump".

Both men wanted the other to back away from investigation, people familiar with the situation said.

Not much, though. The Post implies that, in light of compromised positions of Rosenstein and McCabe, it was clear at the meeting in question that Mueller would have a great degree of independence.

Days later, Rosenstein and Mueller invited McCabe to discuss the acting director leaving the investigation.

Why George and Amal Clooney skipped Princess Eugenie's wedding
Hi, I'm Mr Amal Clooney! Other celebrities , including Cara Delevingne and Naomi Campbell, were in attendance at the ceremony. He serves as a British ambassador for Casamigos , the tequila brand founded by George, which was sold in 2017.

Rosenstein, who has overseen the Mueller probe after the recusal of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, countered by saying that McCabe may need to recuse himself because he had been photographed years earlier while wearing a T-shirt supporting his wife's unsuccessful 2015 campaign for the Virginia state Senate. Baker also told lawmakers that he suspected that Rosenstein was coordinating with members of the Trump administration to remove the president from office by invoking the 25th Amendment.

Neither man conceded the point, and according to the Washington Post, their relationship continued to sour.

McCabe was sacked in March, one day before he was set to retire.

Trump has tried to undermine the FBI and Justice Department, calling their investigation of his presidential campaign and its possible connection to Russian Federation "a witch hunt".
