President Donald Trump lashed out on Saturday at the harsh criticism he has received for firing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe late Friday night, shortly after the Associated Press reported on the existence of contemporaneous memos written by the former lawman.

"The Fake News is beside themselves that McCabe was caught, called out and fired," Trump claimed.

"How many hundreds of thousands of dollars was given to wife’s campaign by Crooked H friend, Terry M, who was also under investigation?" the commander in chief asked. "How many lies? How many leaks?"

"Comey knew it all, and much more!" he charged.

Not long after, Comey replied to Trump with a blistering warning.
