Andrew McCabe kept memos of his conversations with Trump

Trump's personal lawyer, John Dowd, cited the "brilliant and courageous example" by Sessions and the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility and said in a statement Saturday that the No. 2 Justice Department official, Rod Rosenstein, should "bring an end" to the Russian Federation investigation "manufactured" by Comey.
Attorney General Jeff Sessionsfired McCabe on Friday, about a day before his 50th birthday and the date he was set to retire and begin receiving his anticipated pension, over accusations that McCabe directed FBI officials to speak to the media about an investigation tied to the Clinton Foundation and misled investigators about his actions.
"The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability", Sessions said.
"Here is the reality: "I am being singled out and treated this way because of the role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath of the firing of James Comey".
He said: "The big picture is a tale of what can happen when law enforcement is politicised, public servants are attacked". The Virginia Democratic Party, over which Mr. McAuliffe exerts considerable control, donated an additional $207,788 worth of support to Dr. McCabe's campaign in the form of mailers, according to the records.
Following his firing, McCabe told CNN in an interview that he spoke to the President several times while he was acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director in May after Comey's dismissal, and Trump berated him about his wife's failed state Senate campaign.
"This intervention by the White House in the DOJ disciplinary process is unprecedented, deeply unfair, and unsafe", Bromwich said.
McCabe, who had announced his intention to resign in January, was sacked from the agency in the midst of a review into the FBI's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while serving as secretary of State. Before being named FBI deputy director previous year, he led the bureau's national security branch and also the Washington field office, one of the its largest.
Trump's legal team has until now urged Robert Mueller's team to conclude their investigation into Russia's election interference as quickly as possible, but not asked that Mueller be fired.
"I strongly believe this is the latest chapter in a yearlong attack on my credibility and service to the country", McCabe said. As the number-two at the FBI, McCabe has authority to approve such a disclosure, McCabe said.
"With so much at stake, this process has fallen far short of what Mr. McCabe deserved", Bromwich said.
A spokesman for the inspector general's office declined to comment. The White House had seemed to support such an outcome, though a spokeswoman said the decision was up to Sessions. No doubt we'll be hearing more on that soon.
McCabe's memos detail his conversations with Trump. McCabe, according to an official with knowledge of the matter who was not authorized to comment publicly, told Trump that he did not vote.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz put McCabe in his crosshairs during a broad look at alleged improprieties in the handling of the Clinton email case. "Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI", Trump said on Twitter. Barrett now works for The Washington Post. He suggested the whole thing was part of a campaign to undermine the investigations involving Trump.
McCabe announced his retirement from the bureau abruptly in January and it was to take effect on Sunday.
But the McCabe and Comey situations are also somewhat different.
Dowd claims the ongoing investigation - which has already led to 22 indictments, including four former Trump campaign officials, and five plea deals - was "manufactured" by Comey, who ripped into Trump on Saturday for celebrating McCabe's firing. "You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but will not destroy America".
