Mr. Trump, in a series of online posts, celebrated the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe over actions related to an investigation of the Clinton Foundation. He said Mr. McCabe’s termination supports his belief that federal investigators cannot be trusted and will cook up ways to fault him.
“And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!” Mr. Trump said.
The president also cast doubt on Mr. McCabe’s claims that he kept detailed memos of his interactions with Mr. Trump. He said Mr. McCabe never took notes in his presence and likely crafted documents to fit his own agenda.
His Twitter rant followed his attorney’s call on the Justice Department to shut down Mr. Mueller’s investigation immediately on the basis that it has been tainted by political bias from the beginning.
