WATCH: McCabe makes DRASTICALLY different comments about Rosenstein’s coup attempt than he did on 60 Minutes!

On The View today Andrew McCabe totally played off Rod Rosenstein’s comments back in 2017 about wearing a wire in the Oval Office and potentially invoking the 25th amendment to impeach Trump, as a ‘brief off-handed’ comment. He made it sound like Rosenstein wasn’t really serious about it.

But just two days ago on 60 Minutes McCabe has something very different to say.

Watch the difference. Skip ahead to the 1 minute mark if you’re in a hurry.

For those who need a transcript, here’s what McCabe said on The View this morning:

It never went beyond the realm of a brief, off-handed comment by the Deputy Attorney General to me. I'm not aware of any steps that were taken to execute this. I'm not aware of any meetings that were pulled together to discuss it. There was no further discussion that I'm aware of."



Versus what he said on 60 Minutes two days ago:

MCCABE: The Deputy Attorney General offered to wear a wire into the White House. He said I never get searched when I go into the White House. I could easily wear a recording device. They wouldn’t know it was there.

Now he was not joking. He was absolutely serious. And in fact he brought it up in next meeting we had."

60 MINUTES: Rosenstein was actually, openly talking about whether there was a majority of the cabinet who would vote to remove the president?

MCCABE: That's correct. Counting votes, or possible votes.

So on the one hand Rosenstein was ABSOLUTELY SERIOUS and brought it up multiple times. But on the other hand it was just a brief off-handed comment that he never brought up again.

What a stark difference. Good grief.

It seems pretty clear to me that someone got to McCabe after his 60 Minutes interview. And that somebody is likely named Rod Rosenstein.

Let House leaders call McCabe for investigating Trump. He will deny everything he said on CBS show, even use “ I do not think, I remember”. That will be another lie.

Could be. Another possibility is that some of the reaction to the 60 Minutes story made him realize he was in real legal jeopardy. Or that the prospect of being grilled by the Senate Judiciary Committee with a potential criminal referral made him think twice.

Whatever the reason, this is a huge change in story. Something put a little fear into him.

The View skanks will have on anybody anti-Trump. Even though their core audience is too stupid to understand who these people are or what they do. They barely know how to fingerpaint.

Dirty cop McCabe is out in front of the criminal prosecution he will face, hoping to influence public opinion and therefore the jury pool, and well as hyping his false narrative (book) he’s hawking like a snake oil saleman. In addition, he’s praying some bamboozled sap will start a GoFundMe account for him. Sad!

Former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe on whether he believes Russians ordered President Trump to fire then-FBI Director James Comey: “We don’t know and we certainly didn’t know that at the time.”

WTF Mccabe, do you know what you’re implying?

He has proven in just a few days publicly that he is a fool and lies. Comey Rosenstien, and the others have to be livid by now. Any half baked lawyer will use this in court.

These are death penalty offenses. The one thing the murderous hag billory said that was true was if Trump wins we will all hang. Wonder if this is why the crooked Senate moved to eliminate lynching. You can’t make this up.

Isn’t he under investigation? Wouldn’t contacting him and suggesting he change his tune be the same as witness tampering? My money is the Rosenstein or a conduit of his has told McCabe to change his tune.

The incredibly stupid panalists, except for Rinos Megan and Huntsman, looked like they held on to his every word as truth together with their even dumber audience; he actually defamed the President; i can’t wait for his arrest together with the other treasonous rats in Washington.

I am tired of him saying “if” and “might” and “could be”. He is digging himself a hole. They are desperate because what happened to Trump is not only criminal but also treasonous. This is serious stuff.

“Mr. McCabe, why should we believe you?”

“Because I’m telling you a different story now than the last time you recorded me.”

Breaking: Rosenstein to leave DOJ mid march!

We also have the Strzok and Page text messages about the insurance policy they talked about in Andy’s office. Likely they were referring to the 25th amendment talk as a way of getting rid of Trump. How would you do that other than to secretly record whatever he was saying in your presence, and then edit the tape to make him sound crazy. That is why I refuse to excuse everything McCabe is saying as a lie because if you follow the breadcrumb trail of previous statements made by the various players in the attempted coup, there is at least an element of truth running through most of it at least. One would think that McCabe has some lawyers representing him once he was referred to the DOJ for criminal investigation, who one would think would be begging him to just shut up, as he is making the case against… Read more »

I’m still highly skeptical that Sessions & Rosenstein are the bad guys here. Neither of those two were involved in any of the plot to take down Trump, because most of that happened before they even came on board. Rosenstein has done 3 things that make Trump fans mad: 1) The “fire Comey” memo 2) Supervising Mueller 3) Signing the last FISA warrant. Comey needed firing. Why that bothers Trump fans I don’t know. Someone had to hold Mueller’s leash. #Obvious And if I were brought in to figure out what some cabal was up to, I’d sign that last warrant, too (damage was already done, & I’d want to not raise suspicions). It’s obvious there is much more going on here than we know, and I sure don’t trust media hacks to report on it correctly. About the only thing they get right most of the time are the… Read more »

I hope someone sends this to Barr so he can get it to the grand jury investigating McCabe. We know he’s lying but in which interview?
