Acting FBI Director Contradicts White House
It’s a case of “he said, he said.” Andrew McCabe, who was appointed Tuesday evening following James Comey’s dismissal, told the Senate that the former director had not lost the support of the bureau, despite the Trump administration using that justification to fire him. McCabe said Comey “enjoyed broad support” and was held in the “absolute highest regard” within the agency. McCabe also agreed, in front of the Senate, not to update the White House on the Russia probe. Commentators are suggesting the White House is having trouble getting its story straight and is raising suspicion as a consequence.
