Looking for loyalty, Trump asked Federal Bureau of Investigation official about his voting choice

I don't know what was discussed. I care! I do, however, doubt you have an shred of soul left.

McCabe's wife, Jill McCabe, received almost $500,000 in donations from a political action committee controlled by then-Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, a close friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton who chaired Hillary Clinton's unsuccessful 2008 run for president.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Trump asked Andrew McCabe the question when he visited the White house previous year.

For instance, Trump has accused McCabe of being politically motivated because his wife received donations from a PAC run by former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.

McCabe did not vote in the 2016 presidential general election, but did vote in the 2016 Republican presidential primary, according to two Virginia campaign consultants - one Republican, one Democratic - with access to the Virginia campaign participation rolls.

"I ask people who they vote for sometimes", McDaniel continued.

McCabe reportedly said he had not voted in the 2016 general election.

McCabe, who has spent more than two decades at the bureau, found the conversation with Trump "disturbing", said one former US official. Sanders answered "not that I'm aware of", which prompted Vega to whether Trump did that to McCabe.

The president fumed again Tuesday over text messages involving an FBI agent who was reassigned from Mueller's investigation following the discovery of anti-Trump messages he had traded by phone with an FBI lawyer.

"Well, McCabe got more than $500,000 from essentially Hillary Clinton". At Trump's insistence, Sessions has been pressuring FBI Director Christopher Wray-who took over the position from McCabe in August 2017-to fire McCabe, who has returned to his role as deputy FBI director.

It's not hyperbole to say this is a huge moment in our history, and not a good one. Over the past seven months or so, Trump has tweeted criticisms of McCabe, erroneously saying McCabe headed the Clinton investigation while his wife was taking Clinton money for her state Senate campaign.

CNN previously reported that McCabe, who is eligible to retire in March, told other senior Federal Bureau of Investigation officials months ago that he planned to retire in the near future.
