Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) said former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe “undercut his credibility all by himself” while discussing his firing on “Fox News Sunday.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe on Friday, over an unreleased internal report alleging McCabe directed FBI officials to speak to the press about a Clinton Foundation investigation and then misled investigators, according to CNN. President Donald tweeted McCabe’s dismissal was a “great day for democracy.”
The firing drew outrage from Trump administration critics, who felt it was part of an effort to impeach McCabe as a witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
McCabe released a statement that his firing was an attempt to affect his credibility.
