Trump Broke Out a Throwback Lie About Firing Comey

Rosenstein played an important role in that episode, having authored a memo faulting Comey for his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation that the White House held up as justification for Trump's decision to fire the FBI director.
The Times reported that Trump wanted Rosenstein to mention that he was not personally under investigation in the Russian Federation probe, but Rosenstein did not include the reference.
Lindsey Graham is pressing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on whether the Justice Department official should recuse himself from the Robert Mueller investigation due to his own connections to the case. Those memos also have been turned over to Mueller's investigators.
McCabe was sacked in March, just days before he would have been eligible for a lifetime pension, amid a report by an inspector general, claiming he misled internal investigators reviewing the bureau's probe of Clinton's email server and leaked a self-serving story to the media.
One person who was briefed on Mr. Rosenstein's conversation with the president said Mr. Trump had simply wanted Mr. Rosenstein to mention that he was not personally under investigation in the Russian Federation inquiry.
McCabe appeared to follow the same protocol as Comey, who also authored memos about his controversial encounters with Trump, including an alleged conversation past year in which the president asked Comey to scuttle the FBI's then-investigation into national security adviser Michael Flynn. In other words, his current lies are further evidence to support a possible charge of obstruction of justice.
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani defended the president's attacks against Mueller and labeled the investigation "illegitimate" during an interview with CNN that was broadcast Sunday.
Former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe wrote a confidential memo last spring recounting a conversation that provided "significant behind-the-scenes" details on the firing of former FBI director James Comey, the New York Times reported on Wednesday.
Trump pushed back on the account Thursday.
Rosenstein appointed Mueller just a week after Comey was sacked from his role.
In the past, President Donald Trump has criticized McCabe for political donations his wife received from an ally of Hillary Clinton.
"He fired Comey because Comey would not, among other things, say that he wasn't a target of the investigation", Giuliani said earlier this month on Fox News "Hannity." "Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy". They discussed the story the day after it was published, and Comey, according to the inspector general's report, told investigators McCabe "definitely did not tell me that he authorized" the disclosure.
