Trump was furious that McCabe’s wife Jill accepted a contribution from political action committee for then-Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.
McAuliffe was an ally of the Clintons in the past, so Trump decided it meant McCabe was working against him. McCabe, however, worked against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election with the FBI investigation into the email server. Trump, however, never cared about the facts. Instead, he was oddly fixated on McCabe’s wife.
Trump taunted him about it being a “mistake or “problem,” and called the man’s wife a “loser,” on at last four occasions. Trump even raised the issue with former FBI Director James Comey at one point, “Out of the blue,” he told CNN’s Pamela Brown Friday.
Trump would say things “like, ‘What’s wrong with that deputy director of yours?’” The comment implied that somehow McCabe was politically motivated against Trump, which McCabe said is “absolutely not true.”
McCabe told Brown
“In May, when Director Comey was fired and I had my own interactions with the President, he brought up my wife every time I ever spoke to him.”
Each time McCabe pushed back.
“Of course, I disagreed with him. I don’t see my wife’s decision to try to enter public life to help her community (have) greater access to healthcare as a mistake or a problem.”
He also confirmed that Trump demanded to know who McCabe voted for in the 2016 election in their first meeting after firing Comey.
This shameful behavior represents the worst of America and the leanings of over 40 million Americans. The rest of us, those who know Trump to be a cruel sociopath and criminal of the highest order, despite the trappings of office, cheer on McCabe and wish him well. As to the occupant of the Oval Office: Lock him up.
