Trump Taunted FBI’s Andrew McCabe By Calling His Wife A ‘Loser’: Report
President Donald Trump reportedly called former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife a “loser.”
McCabe resigned his position after being attacked by the Trump administration and Trump supporters for months.
Multiple sources told NBC News that on May 9, 2017, Trump called McCabe and was furious that FBI Director James Comey was allowed to fly on an FBI plane from Los Angeles to Washington D.C., after Trump fired Comey earlier in the day.
McCabe told Trump he did not authorize the flight, but would have allowed it.
Trump reportedly told McCabe to ask his wife how it felt to be a loser, a reference to her failed campaign for state office in Virginia in 2015.
McCabe replied, “OK, sir.” Trump then hung up the phone.
The White House denied the incident ever took place.
