Democrat Senator Chris Coons addresses remarks by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe about removing President Trump from office.

In a Face The Nation interview on Sunday, Coons said McCabe’s remarks about invoking the 25th amendment are problematic and should be looked in to.

The Delaware Senator dismissed suggestions made by some Republicans that McCabe’s statements reflect a conspiracy against President Trump.

This comes after McCabe said the DOJ considered removing the President, deeming him “unfit to serve.”

Coons defended McCabe, saying his remarks were probably taken out of context.

Additionally, Coons admitted the alleged abuses of the FISA court by Obama officials should be part of an oversight review of the Mueller probe.
