Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who also served as acting director after James Comey was fired, revealed in a 60 Minutes interview that the Department of Justice seriously considered removing President Trump from office...multiple times.

Hear it from the source:
After he was fired by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in March 2018, the DOJ Inspector General issued a scathing report detailing that McCabe was a serial liar and was properly fired for his dishonest behavior at the FBI. He was then referred to the U.S. Attorney in Washington D.C. for criminal charges after lying to Inspector General and FBI investigators under oath.
The report shows McCabe lied on multiple occasions under oath and to inspector general and FBI investigators about the FBI's criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton, the FBI's investigation into the Clinton Foundation and more. He is found guilty in the report of improperly leaking sensitive information to the Wall Street Journal, which he then lied about and misled former FBI Director James Comey.
"The OIG found that then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe lacked candor, including under oath on multiple occasions in connection with describing his role in connection with a disclosure to the WSJ, and that this conduct violated FBI Offense Codes 2.5 and 2.6. The OIG also concluded that McCabe’s disclosure of the existence of an ongoing investigation in the manner described in this report violated the FBI’s and the Department’s media policy and constituted misconduct," the report states.
President Trump responded to the news Thursday morning.
Disgraced FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe pretends to be a “poor little Angel” when in fact he was a big part of the Crooked Hillary Scandal & the Russia Hoax - a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey. I.G. report on McCabe was devastating. Part of “insurance policy” in case I won....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 14, 2019
....Many of the top FBI brass were fired, forced to leave, or left. McCabe’s wife received BIG DOLLARS from Clinton people for her campaign - he gave Hillary a pass. McCabe is a disgrace to the FBI and a disgrace to our Country. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 14, 2019
