President Trump Jabs FBI, Saying He May ‘Get Involved’ Over Andrew McCabe Texts
AUGUST 13, 2018
(Bloomberg) — President Donald Trump said he might intervene to force the Federal Bureau of Investigation to turn over to a conservative watchdog group text messages sent by former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
“Why isn’t the FBI giving Andrew McCabe text messages to Judicial Watch or appropriate governmental authorities,” Trump tweeted from his New Jersey golf club, where he was spending a rainy morning. “FBI said they won’t give up even one (I may have to get involved, DO NOT DESTROY). What are they hiding?”
Washington-based Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit seeking text messages and emails of McCabe relating to his wife, a pediatric emergency physician who ran unsuccessfully for the Virginia state Senate in 2015.
