JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe said in a statement on Monday that he was “deeply concerned” that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign and Russian election meddling would be put “at risk” if Rod Rosenstein leaves the administration, as¬†reports¬†indicate is imminent.

“There is nothing more important to the integrity of law enforcement
and the rule of law than protecting the investigation of Special
Counsel Mueller. I sacrificed personally and professionally to help
put the investigation on a proper course and subsequently made every
effort to protect it. To be clear, I had no role in providing
information of any kind to the media stories about events following
Director Comey’s firing. If the rumors of Deputy AG’s Rosenstein’s
departure are true, I am deeply concerned that it puts that
investigation at risk.”
