Trump Accuses McCabe Of Manufacturing ‘Fake Memos’

President Donald Trump reacted Sunday morning to news that former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe kept personal memos from his meetings with the president.

McCabe has turned over the memos, which are believed to be similar to those kept by former FBI Director James Comey, to the special counsel’s office, according to The Associated Press. The contents of these documents, drafted by a man who believes the White House has unfairly targeted, bullied, and maligned him, remain unknown for the time being.

The Comey memos leaked in 2017 suggested that the president asked him to drop the investigation into former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

The president argues that the McCabe memos, like the Comey memos, are probably fakes written at a later date to advance McCabe’s interests.

The president has been extremely critical of the former deputy director of the FBI on Twitter over the past few days.

“I am being singled out and treated this way because of the role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath of the firing of James Comey,” McCabe wrote in his statement on his firing.
