President Trump: 'Tremendous Leaking and Lying' at the FBI

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe late Friday night. Today, the President warns there is great leaking and lying within the bureau.

The commander in chief took to twitter to warn of "tremendous" corruption in the FBI, Justice department, and state department. 

President Trump also lambasted the main stream media for their reaction to McCabe's firing. 

In October, 2016, the Wall Street Journal reported that Andrew McCabe's wife had funneled thousands of dollars to the failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Campaign finance records show Mr. McAuliffe’s political-action committee donated $467,500 to the 2015 state Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, who is married to Andrew McCabe, now the deputy director of the FBI. The Virginia Democratic Party, over which Mr. McAuliffe exerts considerable control, donated an additional $207,788 worth of support to Dr. McCabe’s campaign in the form of mailers, according to the records. That adds up to slightly more than $675,000 to her candidacy from entities either directly under Mr. McAuliffe’s control or strongly influenced by him. The figure represents more than a third of all the campaign funds Dr. McCabe raised in the effort...The governor could recall only one meeting with Mr. McCabe—when he and other state Democrats met with the couple on March 7, 2015, to urge Dr. McCabe to run, according to the spokesman...Mr. McCabe’s supervision of the Clinton email case in 2016 wasn’t seen as a conflict or an ethics issue because his wife’s campaign was over by then and Mr. McAuliffe wasn’t part of the email probe, officials said...Dr. McCabe announced her candidacy in March 2015, the same month it was revealed that Mrs. Clinton had used a private server as secretary of state to send and receive government emails, a disclosure that prompted the FBI investigation. At the time the investigation was launched in July 2015, Mr. McCabe was running the FBI’s Washington, D.C., field office, which provided personnel and resources to the Clinton email probe.

Last night after firing McCabe, he tweeted that it was a great day for democracy.

The White House has been generally quiet today aside from President Trump's tweets.
