Congressman Jim Jordan recently responded to Andrew McCabe’s bombshell “60 Minutes” interview, and reiterated that McCabe is not trustworthy.
In a series of tweets Sunday, Jordan reminded the American people the former FBI deputy director has lied at least three times to the bureau, and has been referred to for criminal prosecution.
REMEMBER Andy McCabe:
-Lied 3 times to the FBI and fired
-Referred for criminal prosecution
-Was part of the plot to use the Dossier against the President
Still zero evidence of Russian collusion. Lots of evidence that Andy McCabe is untrustworthy and politicized the FBI. (1/3)

This comes after McCabe appeared on CBS and spoke out about investigations launched against President Trump. He also revealed that deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office.
Jordan has since called on both McCabe and Rosenstein to testify before Congress.
“The fact that he’s out there…look’s like he’s spinning stories with the press before he leaves the Justice Department…he’s got time to talk to the press, but he’s doesn’t have time to talk to Congress…we got now the third person who has said that Rod Rosenstein was serious about removing the president from office, which is just crazy, so we need to talk to him,” said Jordan.
McCabe’s interview has prompted the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington, D.C. to investigate his claims.
