Trump 'Not Concerned' About Sessions Mueller Interview

New FBI Director Threatened to Resign After Trump, Sessions Pressured Him to Fire Top Agent

McCabe is considered a key witness in the ongoing Russian Federation probe, as one of just a handful of people who can reportedly corroborate the "Comey memo" claiming that Trump demanded former FBI Director James Comey to show his "loyalty" by shutting down the Russian Federation probe.

Shortly after firing FBI Director James Comey, Trump asked Andrew McCabe about his vote for president during the 2016 election, according to several unnamed officials who spoke with the Washington Post.

Trump also expressed frustration because McCabe's wife had received "several hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations" when she ran for a Virginia state Senate seat in 2015 from a group with ties to Hillary Clinton, the officials said, according to The Washington Post's report. "His many years of dedication to the Bureau and (Justice Department), his level-headed judgment and earnest professionalism, and his steady good cheer have been an asset to us all and have contributed greatly to the safety and security of our nation". "He did not even a little bit", Trumps said during an unrelated Oval Office event. At the time, Mr Trump said he was concerned with Mr Comey's handling of the Clinton email server investigation.

The Axios report, in view of three anonymous sources, said Sessions was forcing Wray to flame McCabe, and that one source acquainted with the circumstance said Sessions passed on to White House advise Don McGahn how vexed Wray was about the demand, and that McGahn thusly said it wasn't worth losing Wray over.

Trump on Tuesday kept up his Twitter pressure on the nation's premier law enforcement agency, noting that FBI officials have admitted that they can not locate thousands of text messages between two senior officials accused of displaying anti-Trump bias in their work on investigations involving the president.

Swan also wrote the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department were given "full visibility of our story before publishing", and "neither agency took issue with our characterization of the Wray-Sessions conversations or of Wray's threat to resign". In both his public comments and private remarks to FBI personnel, Wray has signaled that staffing decisions are his to make, and he intends to wait for the ongoing inspector general investigation to reach some conclusions before making major personnel decisions involving people under scrutiny in that investigation - a category that includes McCabe.

Wray has since defended the FBI's reputation in internal memos to staff and on Capitol Hill. Attorney General Jeff Sessions pledged to do everything he can to recover them. It is customary for a new director to bring in his own team. "We'll leave that in his hands".

Attorney Zachary Harmon has been tapped to replace Rybicki.
