Former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe has dropped a bombshell revelation about the Department of Justice's actions in 2017 in the wake of former FBI Director James Comey's firing.
Talking with "CBS This Morning," reporter Scott Pelley said that McCabe told him in his soon-to-be-aired interview with "60 Minutes" that the DOJ had meetings in May of 2017 to discuss whether President Donald Trump's cabinet could be rallied to oust him from power.
"There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment," Pelley revealed.
Pelley went on to say that DOJ officials were "counting noses" in the White House about which cabinet officials would most likely agree with their plan to remove Trump, although they never formally asked any cabinet members to invoke the 25th amendment.
