Andrew McCabe did his initial interview on 60 Minutes, but since then he has been making the rounds doing several interviews on CNN, MSNBC and the networks. I watched him on Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O'Donnell, Nicole Wallace and Chris Hayes, plus excerpts from many of the other interviews. Today will be Ari Melber's turn on MSNBC. Each of these interviews takes a different tact...minimal repetition or rehashing of the same points.
Media coverage of his interviews has also generally been positive, except for Fox News and other right wing organizations that continue to vilify him. Trump is continually attacking him on Twitter and elsewhere. I think McCabe has gotten under his skin.
To me he comes across as honest and sincere. He responds to all questions carefully and articulates his positions quite well. I especially liked the way Nicole Wallace (a Republican) interviewed him. I believe him. I think Americans should be happy and proud that he was at the helm of the FBI for the short period after Trump fired Comey. If not for McCabe setting in motion the counter-espionage investigation against Trump, the Mueller investigation might never have happened. On more than one occasion, McCabe has speculated that Trump might be a Russian agent.
I know we covered Andrew McCabe in other threads, but I believe as historians look back at the Trump investigations, Andrew McCabe will be a central figure. I suppose it should not be surprising that the Republicans are defending Trump against McCabe calling him, "Lying, Leaking, McCabe".
I am looking forward to reading his book. It will arrive in the mail today.
