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.

Anti-science Christians who went ‘all in’ for Trump bear responsibility for COVID-19 crisis: religious extremism expert
Appearing on MSNBC with host Ayman Mohyeldin, the author of a widely shared New York Times article on the dangerous rise of religious nationalism lambasted religious leaders who are still holding public services when the government is advising social isolation and claimed they are making things worse for the rest of the country.
Speaking with the host, Katherine Stewart, who is also the author of the book "The Power Worshipers," explained that years of anti-science rhetoric from the predominately rightwing evangelical movement is a contributing factor as to why the country is in the throes of a deadly pandemic that may lead to over 250,000 deaths.
Ex-Homeland Security adviser reveals to The View another Trump coronavirus failure no one’s talking about
Tom Bossert, a former Homeland Security adviser to President Donald Trump, identified one failure of leadership that has mostly escaped notice during the coronavirus outbreak.
Governors have begged the president to order the manufacture of ventilators and other medical equipment under the Defense Production Act, which Trump has already invoked, but Bossert said he must also anticipate another need to eventually end the pandemic.
"This is a massive, complicated logistics challenge at this point, and, you know, Gov. [Gavin] Newsom and others will tell you that it's not just about large-scale purchasing," Bossert said. "It's about deciding who needs it and whose priority should trump others because this is a scarcity of resource problem at this point. We're kind of past what we would have, could have and should have done, and we're making decisions about who gets what when and why. That's the trick."
Devin Nunes labeled a ‘national menace’ on MSNBC for calling coronavirus safety measures for kids ‘overkill’
Following a discussion on MSNBC about accusations that Fox News has pumped out misinformation about the coronavirus epidemic, the author of a widely-cited New York Times article on the network was asked to address comments made by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) Tuesday night when he called quarantine advisories for schoolchildren "overkill."
During the Republican's Fox News appearance, Nunes stated, "Look, the schools were just canceled out here in California, which is way overkill. It is possible kids could have went [sic] back to school in two weeks to four weeks, but they just canceled the rest of the schools.”
