Trump Says Comey Firing Decision Was His Own

Updated on

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe dismissed White House claims that the bureau’s rank and file had lost confidence in James Comey before President Donald Trump fired him, defending his former boss and vowing to press ahead with a probe into links between Russia and Trump’s presidential campaign.

“Director Comey enjoyed broad support in the FBI and still does to this day,” McCabe said in testimony Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
