Former Presidents have been attacked by other parties in the past. However, this act by the Department of Justice is truly unspeakable.

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe says that after President Trump fired his boss, FBI Director James Comey, there were discussions within the Department of Justice about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

Last year, the New York Times reported that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed recruiting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment.

McCabe confirmed the report in a new interview with “60 Minutes” host Scott Pelley, who relayed what McCabe told him on “CBS This Morning” Thursday.

“There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment,” Pelley said.

In a statement released by the Justice Department, Rosenstein said McCabe’s account of a discussion of invoking the 25th amendment was “inaccurate and factually incorrect.”

Trump responded in a pair of tweets later Thursday morning.

Disgraced FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe pretends to be a “poor little Angel” when in fact he was a big part of the Crooked Hillary Scandal & the Russia Hoax – a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey. I.G. report on McCabe was devastating. Part of “insurance policy” in case I won….

….Many of the top FBI brass were fired, forced to leave, or left. McCabe’s wife received BIG DOLLARS from Clinton people for her campaign – he gave Hillary a pass. McCabe is a disgrace to the FBI and a disgrace to our Country. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

The discussions occurred between the time of Comey’s firing in May of 2017 and the appointment eight days later of special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

According to the Times, Rosenstein also suggested that he secretly record Trump in the White House. Rosenstein disputed the account, and a Justice Department official said he made the remark sarcastically. But McCabe told Pelley that Rosenstein’s offer to wear a wire was made more than once and that he ultimately took it to the lawyers at the FBI to discuss.

McCabe, who was named acting director of the bureau after Comey’s firing, launched obstruction of justice and counterintelligence investigations into whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey.

He told Pelley he did so in order to preserve the FBI’s Russian probe in case there was an effort by Trump to terminate it.

“I was very concerned that I was able to put the Russia case on absolutely solid ground, in an indelible fashion,” McCabe said. “That were I removed quickly, or reassigned or fired, that the case could not be closed or vanish in the night without a trace.”

McCabe’s comments come ahead of the release of his new book, “The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump,” due out next week.

In an excerpt of the book published Thursday in the Atlantic, McCabe describes a phone call he received from Trump on his first full day on the job as acting director of the FBI. According to McCabe, Trump told him that he had “hundreds of messages from FBI people [saying] how happy they are that I fired [Comey].”

“You know — boy, it’s incredible, it’s such a great thing, people are really happy about the fact that the director’s gone, and it’s just remarkable what people are saying,” Trump said, according to McCabe. “Have you seen that? Are you seeing that, too?”

McCabe was eventually fired in March 2018, less than two days before he would have collected a full early pension for his FBI career.

“Andrew McCabe FIRED,” Trump tweeted on the day of McCabe’s dismissal. “A great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI – A great day for Democracy.”

Trump has since railed against McCabe dozens of times on Twitter. “He LIED! LIED! LIED! McCabe was totally controlled by Comey – McCabe is Comey!” he exclaimed last April. “No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!”

    • The removal and arrest of IIhan A. Omar from the 5th Congressional District in her participation in Fraudulent Marriage with the sole or primary purpose in providing an unlawful U.S Resident Alien Status for her own brother, a British Citizen known as Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.
      IIhan Abdullahi Omar is a Somalian Refugee who spent years in a Refugee Camp in Kenya. She immigrated to the United States as a Refugee in 1995.
      She became eligible for U.S Citizenship five years after her admission in the U.S territory, and Omar became U.S Citizen in 2000 when she was at the age of 17.
      In 2009, IIhan Omar married her own brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, and then in 2011 she married her current spouse, Ahmed Hirsi, while married to her own brother. A Muslim-British who wanted the U.S Resident Alien Status.

  1. This is NOT the first time information was withheld from the American taxpayers as regards to the FBI and DOJ in that MUELLER was involved. Remember the beginning of the financial snafu with Enron and the banking industry? It seems that Charges were manufactured against a major accounting firm ANDERSON which represented MANY businesses worldwide. Thousands of innocent people lost their jobs because of what Mueller and Weisman accused Anderson of that was later rectified and charges dropped, but TOO late to save jobs and companies. Power corrupts and absolute power KILLS. It’s time to clean house in Washington D.C. How much money did everyone lose in 2008 -2009 when the banks failed, yet were SAVED by the Congressional LEECHES?? Cynthia

  2. All of the ACTS of TREASON and yet NO ONE is going to prison and or losing their retirement perks ? Shows WAY TOO MUCH POWER IN OFFICES !

  3. IMHO American needs to be protected against the likes of McCabe, Comes, Rosenstein, even Sessions; then go after the clintonista mafia, Pelose, Waters, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch (and so many others). Charge every single one of them with TREASON and collusion to commit treason; let them fight their way out of court, if they can. If they cannot then HANG ‘EM HIGH!!

  4. Trump needs to do a clean sweep of the top FBI an DOJ an start over with a fresh patch of people that believe in law an order.

  5. Term Limits ,Jail time, live by same laws as we do , no pensions, these are the employees we pay , stolen or any monies that they got illegally confiscate

  6. I agree. Get rid of everyone in the DOJ and choose your own that will have your back. The Dems and all the other asses are against you and are doing everything they can to get rid of you and if you don’t stand up to them and stop them now they will win. Do not sign the agreement they are sending you to stop the government shutdown. Even if you declare an emergency they will file suit against you and you don’t have republicans on your side which you need.

  7. At the stroke of midnite pull the pwer on all fbi buildings change locks on doors card swipes everthing ! Fire everone from director to 3rd shift janitor. 30 days later start vetting a new group – no dirty cops! we pay for the best we deserve better than we have gotten . They don’t don’t like it here is a quarter call The President. MAGA

  8. I would like to see some real justice for a change. It would be nice to see the treasonous Democrats in our government arrested and charged with crimes against America and our Constitution (add Obama to that mix since he was the biggest offender).

  9. TREASON USED TO BE PUNISHABLE BY DEATH, SO WHY IS JOHN KERRY, HILLIARY CLINTON, OBAMA, AND A LOT THAT TRIED TO IMPEACH TRUMP STILL LIVING. IF I HAD DONE WHAT KERRY DID DURING THE KOREAN WAR, I WOULD HAVE BEEN SHOT A TRAITOR. BENEDICT ARNOLD WAS NOT ALLOWED TO SEE THIS COUNTRY AGAIN. WHY HAS OUR SUPPOSED LAW ALLOWED THIS TO HAPPEN.

  10. Why is it that the Dems. don’t respond to the allegations against their own? Why do they not rise up against the corruption in the FBI and the free pass Hillary receives? Why are most of the investigations are against Rep? It isn’t because Rep. are more likely to be a target. It is because the Dems. learned a long time ago that offense is best. Who has been mean spirited when they said Rep. were? The Dems. have seized power in the courts, unions and schools. If you decide to sit back and do nothing, you won’t be a good Rep., but a an asset for the Dems.

  11. Pushing another book, trying to get people to buy it. I wish like hell that they were put in jail but it doesn’t seem like anyone has the balls to do it. Maybe it’s time for we the people to take a hike to DC and clean house. Voting is to dirty. Time to do it the good American way.

  12. President Trump you know that all of the people that are doing this to you__it is because they are all jealous of all that you have accomplished while in office.
    You have done more than any other President before you. I want to thank you
    for being the man that you are. God has placed you here for a time such as this.
    God has blessed you with all your talent and ability because He know that He could use you. Thank you for being that man. God Bless you stay strong and remember that your people are with you all the way. Most of all God has your back

  13. Evidently there is no law unless your a law abiding citizen. The DOJ FBI and CIA are full of liars and criminals at the top and the democratic socialist party is a crooked and evil than sodom and gohmorra and you have Republicans that are traitorous cowards. We the people will be forced to take up arms and take this country back. Wait and see. It’s coming. Because there is no law anymore and those that have broken it will continue to do so because nob ok dying at the top of the government are holding them accountable.

  14. Drain the Swamp .(NOW).Don’t wait another day.Do it for all the American’s who have gave their life for the Freedom of America and most of the World.

  15. Unfortunately, we have quite a few “passive” Republicans in office. Trump, Graham & Cruz cannot fight alone. The Dems are aggressive, corrupt and use every sickening tool they can. Calling us rascist & fascist for trying to protect the unborn and our own citizens. Is crucial that we stand our ground, speak up, call them out make them extremely uncomfortable everywhere they go. These are not polite times.

  16. I want to VOLUNTEER for the FIRING SQUAD and if theres only one live round I want it in my Rifle pointing straight in to their hearts. cliton, mccabe, comey, waters, oDUMBo, rice, pisslousy, schlummer,wyden, etc etc etc. ALL OF THE LAST ADMINISTRATION WHO HAS BEEN HELD OVER AND STILL CAUSING PROBLEMS, AOC, INHAN the sand flea anti Israel pos moose slime.

  17. There will be rioting in streets I am sick and disgusted of where a handful of criminals has gotten away with dragging this country down..damn it, mr. President lock em up
    Starting with bill n Hilary and you too mr Obama the worst president this country has ever had a community organizer who rose to be president go to hell and take ur corrupt friends with you..

  18. When will this END ?
    Pray now that AG BARRis in place he will immediately have the DOJ CLEARED OUT OF IT’S DEEP STATE TRAITORS
    AND INDICTNTHESE ALREADY OUTED AS WELL AS OTHERS STILL UNNAMED.

  19. GIVING AID AND CONFORT TO THE ENEMY IS TREASON, THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT, KERRY, HANOI JANE, OBAMA, HILLIARY AND A LOT MORE IN WASHINGTON HAS DONE, ALL SHOULD BE PROSCUTED TO THE HILT. I AM A LIFE TIME REG. DEM., A VET OF THE KOREAN WAR, 51/53, AND IF I HAD DONE A TINY PART OF WHAT THESE PEOPLE DID THEN, I WOULD HAVE BEEN SHOT AS A TRAITOR. WE NOW HAVE A MUSLIM MAJOR THAT HAS KILLED A BUNCH OF OUR TROOPS IN TEXAS, STILL LIVING, WHY? THE DEATH PENALITY BY HANGING IS A MUST FOR HIM AND ALL OTHERS THAT KILL US.

    Praying for Trump to suffer several unrecoverable massive heart attacks and DIE [email protected]

  24. Mr. President…there are some very sick terrorists inside our offices of elected officials…they are making a move as this writing to attempt to place us under a “benevolent” Dictatorship…

    Those calling for riots are duly elected representatives…in essence, they seek to over-rule our Constitution.

    You need protection sir, and the State of Emergency is a justified move, but those traitors within are trying to turn it into violence.

    If we have violence, it will be selective, meaning they have selected the participants to act it out…and at that moment our enemies abroad shall consider “taking a chance” against us, a opportunity to invade in some manner.

    Sir, we are out here and will support you…we trust you Mr. President. and we must get rid of those who seek to cause us harm

  25. Who in their right mind would believe
    Mueller, releasing what investigation?
    A witch hunt by the worlds worst people, should I say more….ok.
    All they have done since 2016 is mock trump because little mrs. ripp of lair clinton lost the election.
    I remember people like that in my third grade class. A bunch of crying jerks.
    The rats have done nothing for the country….except show they are desperate, and will do everything they can to win. I feel really dam sad right now that the democrats can’t get a grip on life and do the right thing….quit their jobs and go home.
