The View co-host Meghan McCain on Tuesday insinuated that former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe was a liar, and was only using his new book as a way to avoid more trouble.
“I don’t believe you’re a reliable narrator. And I’m not convinced this shot to just some kind of PR campaign to stop yourself from getting indicted,” McCain said, noting that the Justice Department’s inspector general had accused McCabe of “lacking candor.”
She asked McCabe if he had ever leaked information to the New York Times. He said he “absolutely” had not.
“When I was serving as the deputy director, I was 1 of 2 people in the FBI that had the authority to disclose information to the media,” McCabe said.
“Then why did James Comey deny the claim that he approved your leaks to the press?” McCain pressed.
“I don’t know why Jim Comey doesn’t remember the conversations that we had in the same way that I do. He was under an enormous amount of stress at the time. He had a lot of other more important things to worry about,” McCabe replied.
Co-host Joy Behar then interjected with a question of her own: “I thought you guys [at the FBI] wrote everything down?”
McCabe replied that he only took notes after having a conversation with someone he did not trust.
“Uh-huh, like the president,” Behar said.

Maddow reveals how Chinese group Falun Gong went from disrupting events to running a shadow campaign for Trump
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Tuesday detailed the remarkable journey of the group Falun Gong shifting from disrupting White House events to dominating the conversation on Facebook.
Maddow hilariously recounted the "major embarrassment" for the George W. Bush White House when a protester interrupted remarks by President of China Hu Jintao.
The protester was credentialed to cover the event for the Epoch Times, which is controlled by Falun Gong.
"Well, NBC News has a scoop out today about that group, about how that paper, the Epoch Times has transformed itself a lot in the Trump era. It’s a real revelation, this reporting from NBC News," Maddow said. "I mean, Epoch Times and its media group, they’ve made themselves into a whole new thing entirely and in a very big way."
Trump’s failed Federal Reserve nominee doesn’t even know what the interest rate was 10 years ago
On Tuesday, CNN's Chris Cuomo invited on Stephen Moore, supply-side economist and President Donald Trump's failed pick for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, to discuss the state of the administration — and Moore made a hilariously wrong remark about interest rates that suggests the country was better off without him.
"There's no greatest economy ever," said Cuomo. "You know these things ... he's doing well. He's not doing better than we've ever seen before, and you guys got the benefits of juicing the economy with this tax cut. Fair point?"
"Let me say this, I think it's a pretty darn good economy," said Moore. "I'll cite a few statistics. It's a pretty darn good one. We have the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years ... and for blacks and Hispanics and women."
Chinese news site run in US hired Republican strategist to help them get in good with Trump and his supporters
NBC News broke a huge story that detailed the way that the Chinese news website The Epoch Times has turned from their conservative conspiracy theories to promoting President Donald Trump and running ads for him on Facebook. But the reporter revealed in an interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Tuesday, that the site recently decided to begin running its own political operation.
She described the site like a kind of troll farm where the young "reporters" they hired are forced to churn out many articles each day. They've always been a conservative site that opposes things like homosexuality and pop music, but now they're hoping to capitalize on evangelicals.
