Fired FBI deputy director ‘kept memos regarding Trump’
Andrew McCabe was fired by the US attorney general on Friday.
Andrew McCabe, the former FBI deputy director fired by the US attorney general, kept personal memos regarding President Donald Trump, according to a source.
The source said the memos are similar to the ones maintained by former FBI director James Comey, who Mr Trump fired last May, according to the Associated Press.
Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI - A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 17, 2018
Mr Comey’s series of notes detailed interactions with Mr Trump that Mr Comey said unnerved him.
Mr McCabe’s memos include details of interactions with the president, among other topics, the source said.
It is not immediately clear whether any of the reported McCabe memos have been turned over to special counsel Robert Mueller or requested by Mr Mueller.
