Andrew McCabe, the former Deputy Director of the FBI, gave an eye-popping interview to CBS’ “60 Minutes,” which aired Sunday. McCabe’s account exposed discussions within the Justice Department to remove President Donald Trump over his firing of former FBI director James Comey.
Moving quickly to counter the news cycle, special counsel Robert Mueller’s team are now saying they have new evidence against former Trump advisor Roger Stone. But according to Stone, it’s just recycled “fake news.”
In a new court filing, the Mueller team claims to have evidence that Roger Stone communicated with WikiLeaks, CNN reported. Mueller did not provide further details.
Wikileaks has denied leaking any information to Stone or anyone else working for Trump during the 2016 presidential election.

Roger Stone said that the communications Mueller’s team referenced were turned over to a House investigation more than a year ago and “proved absolutely nothing.”
“The innocuous twitter DM messages turned over to the house intelligence committee over a year ago that prove absolutely nothing? Widely reported at the time and recycled here as fake news,” Stone commented on Instagram.
This looks like nothing more than Mueller trying to deflect the news cycle away from the disastrous McCabe coverage.
The Deep State Plot
First and foremost, McCabe, who was fired as director of the FBI for lying, is trying to sell books. His new book, provocatively titled, The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump, has just hit the stores.
McCabe is trying to get as much attention as he can to make sure that book stays on the bestseller list for as long as possible, and made some rather remarkable accusations while doing the talk show circuit to promote his book.
He has stated that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein offered to secretly record Trump. McCabe also claimed Rosenstein was willing to do this so they could possibly invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.
Rosenstein, however, has publicly denied this. McCabe also claimed that attempts were made to recruit members of Trump’s cabinet in the plot — but later backtracked.
But if McCabe is actually telling the truth, this is nothing less than a coup d’état attempt. In other words, McCabe and anyone working with him would all be guilty of treason.
His feelings about the president are no secret, as can be seen in the title of his book. McCabe is clearly a man with an agenda, and he and all the rest should answer for this.
