Republican Rep. Mark Meadows said Friday that former FBI Director Andrew McCabe would likely fail to mention what the North Carolina lawmaker believes is his inability to be truthful about his time in the Trump administration.
McCabe “is a known liar and leaker,” Meadows noted in a tweet before suggesting that former Deputy Attorney Journal Rod Rosenstein “has played ‘hide and go seek’ from Congress at every turn. McCabe’s book “The Threat: How The FBI Protects Americans In The Age Of Terror And Trump” will hit bookstores on Feb. 19.
Meadows also believes the book won’t include what he believe is the most damning information: “We have scores of evidence that top FBI and DOJ brass, without basis, targeted President Trump.”
3 truths you won’t find in Andy McCabe’s book:
- McCabe is a known liar and leaker
- Rod Rosenstein has played ‘hide and go seek’ from Congress at every turn
- We have scores of evidence that top FBI and DOJ brass, without basis, targeted President Trump
You do the math

Trump fired McCabe in March two days before he was set to retire and receive his government pension. Investigators found that he authorized his deputy, Lisa Page, to give information to the Wall Street Journal about a probe into the Clinton Foundation.
FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility and the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) accused McCabe in March 2018 of a “lack of candor” in four interviews with investigators, some of which were under oath.
Meadows’ comments come days after President Donald Trump tweeted something similar. “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 [and] the Russia Hoax — a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey,” Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday.
