'New York Times' publisher responds to president's 'public enemy' tweet
Feb 23, 2019, 01:26
Former acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director Andrew McCabe on Thursday sought to further downplay the discussion in which he says Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein broached using the 25th Amendment to oust President Trump from office, asserting that Rosenstein was merely "thinking off the top of his head".
"Stories are written that have absolutely no basis in fact", Trump wrote.
McCabe has recounted in interviews how he made a decision to open counterintelligence and obstruction of justice investigations targeting Trump shortly after the president fired James Comey as FBI director in May 2017. But nine days later, Trump broke the agreement to keep the meeting private when he tweeted about the conversation and said the two men discussed "the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News has morphed into phrase, 'Enemy of the People.' Sad!"
The Times responded to Trump's tweet early Wednesday afternoon with a tweet defending its reporting.
