President Donald Trump wasted no time lashing out at Andrew McCabe after the former FBI Deputy Director revealed Thursday top officials at the Dept. of Justice were so disturbed by the President's actions they seriously discussed if they could invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

"Disgraced FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe pretends to be a 'poor little Angel' when in fact he was a big part of the Crooked Hillary Scandal & the Russia Hoax - a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey. I.G. report on McCabe was devastating. Part of 'insurance policy' in case I won....," Trump tweeted.

"Many of the top FBI brass were fired, forced to leave, or left," Trump tweeted, not acknowledging that he was behind those removals, including the ones of agents and officials who were forced out.
"McCabe’s wife received BIG DOLLARS from Clinton people for her campaign - he gave Hillary a pass. McCabe is a disgrace to the FBI and a disgrace to our Country. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"
