Today 16:20 GMT

High-level Justice Department discussions about a reported offer by Deputy Attorney General (DAG) Rod Rosenstein to secretly record President Trump took place over a “couple of days” before the idea was abandoned as “too risky,” according to testimony from the FBI's former top lawyer.

Dan Bongino: Like Comey and Brennan, McCabe finds impetus of Trump probe 'inarticulable'

Today 19:05 GMT

Like ex-CIA boss John Brennan and disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, McCabe was coining his own phrase to explain why the intelligence community started spying the Trump team.

MCCABE: 'NO ONE' IN CONGRESSIONAL LEADERSHIP OBJECTED WHEN TOLD OF FBI’S TRUMP PROBE. McCabe told Scott Pelley the FBI had a bunch of "articulable facts," but he didn’t bother to articulate them. Yet, in the case of the counter-intelligence probe that targeted Team Trump, it has been two years and we are still waiting for someone to articulate a clear reason why the program began.

Andrew McCarthy: McCabe and ‘60 Minutes’ avoid discussing WHY Russia factored in Comey’s firing

Today 12:40 GMT

Andrew McCabe is a good witness and he made a favorable impression, at least on me, in his '60 Minutes' interview with Scott Pelley.

ANDREW MCCARTHY: MCCABE, ROSENSTEIN AND THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT THE 25TH AMENDMENT COUP ATTEMPT. The viewer was thus left to conclude, from McCabe’s other comments, that Trump must have fired the FBI director because he was fearful of the Bureau’s investigation of Russia’s interference in the election; because he was concerned that the FBI would find that Russia intended to benefit Trump and would therefore deduce that Trump was complicit.

Sunday 18:09 GMT

Trump 2020 campaign adviser Lara Trump slammed Andrew McCabe Saturday after the former FBI deputy director confirmed in a recent interview that he ordered an obstruction of justice probe against the president.

McCabe said in the "60 Minutes" interview that shortly after he spoke with Trump over the phone in May 2017, he decided to start the probe.
