Former FBI deputy director: There were meetings to discuss how to remove President Trump from office

High-ranking members of our nation’s security intelligence team did hold meetings as to how to remove President Trump from office. This is according  to former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe.

McCabe reportedly told “60 Minutes” that it was, in fact, discussed whether Vice President Pence and a number of cabinet members could actually remove Trump from office under the 25th Amendment.

These meetings apparently happened over an eight-day period from when Trump fired FBI Director James Comey until Robert Mueller was named as special counsel to investigate Trump-Russia Collusion.

McCabe goes on to say that he ordered an obstruction of justice probe into President Trump following the firing of Comey.

“I was very concerned that I was able to put the Russia case on absolutely solid ground, in an indelible fashion,”  McCabe says in the interview.

He says he wanted to get the investigation on solid ground in the event that he were fired, the next person that came in after him would have to answer as to why they shut down the investigation.

McCabe’s 60 Minutes interview is scheduled to run on Sunday, Feb. 17.
