Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe showed up on CNN to defend himself as he faces possible indictment for misleading investigators, Washington Examiner reported.
After McCabe was showed a video of GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy saying he will be indicted, McCabe said he will not reach a deal with the DOJ if he is offered one.
“Absolutely not under any circumstances,” he said. “I have said to you, I said from the very beginning, I absolutely reject that report because I never intentionally misled anyone about anything, and I will not stand up and claim that I’ve done something that I didn’t do. So it won’t happen.“
This was the first time that McCabe talked about the allegations since being hired by CNN. He has been absent from the air ever since it was reported that federal prosecutors were close to making a final decision on whether to indict McCabe.
The hiring of McCabe earned CNN a wave of condemnation from conservatives, who already view the cable news network as having a left-leaning, anti-Trump bias.
Some of McCabe’s new colleagues at CNN are also dismayed as well. “It’s hard to see the justification for hiring him initially since it was publicly documented he’s, best case, a liar,” one on-air personality told Fox News. “How will CNN handle it if he’s also soon indicted?”
