(FILES) In this file photo taken on May 11, 2017, Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee in Washington, DC. – McCabe has said that US President Donald Trump’s firing of his predecessor James Comey set off alarms of a threat against the Russia meddling investigation and sparked discussions of invoking the Constitution to remove Trump. In an interview with the CBS investigative program “60 Minutes,” McCabe said he moved quickly to shore up the Russia investigation after Comey was sacked on May 9, 2017, in case Trump then fired him to shut down the probe. “I think the next day, I met with the team investigating the Russia cases,” McCabe said in an excerpt of the interview released on February 14, 2019.
