The Times reported that after installing Matthew Whitaker as the acting Attorney General, Trumpasked him to put a political appointee, Geoffrey Berman, in charge of the investigation into him and his campaign at the Southern District of NY.
It says Trump called his then-acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker to ask if a prosecutor of his choice could oversee the investigation into his former lawyer Michael Cohen.
He also said that journalists reporting on his administration "don't even call asking for verification" about stories they write about the White House.
McCabe has recounted in interviews how he chose to open counterintelligence and obstruction of justice investigations targeting Trump shortly after the president fired James Comey as FBI director in May 2017. "Fake News!" he said.
The one-time FBI chief has disputed the findings as "absolutely ridiculous", claiming he was wrongfully targeted over the Russian Federation probe as part of Trump's "war" on the bureau. "I want to be", Trump said during the interview with Sulzberger and two Times reporters.
"That's a lie", Haberman said, pushing back on the President's claim the paper of record did not reach out for comment before the article ran. He cited Whitaker's response to questioning about whether he'd been asked to make changes to the U.S. Attorney's Office in NY among the examples in which he said the committee had information that contradicted Whitaker's testimony. But the evidence so far shows that a broad range of Trump associates had Russia-related contacts during the 2016 presidential campaign and transition period, and several lied about the communication. Investigators have examined key episodes such as Trump's firing of Comey and Trump's fury over Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal. "They chose not to engage, and afterwards, the president acts surprised".
Trump has been highly critical of numerous former and current intelligence officials he feels were working against him - including Clapper.
The conversations, McCabe said, occurred in the hectic days in May 2017 after Trump fired James B. Comey as FBI director, and as federal law enforcement was mulling what it should do next.
He suggested key officials involved in the Russian Federation probe were engaged in "treasonous" behaviour.
"I have a lot of respect for Mr. Whitaker, I think he's done a great job, he's a very, very straight shooter I watched him during the hearing", said President Trump.
In August, Cohen admitted he made illegal campaign contributions at the behest of Trump and pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations in connection with the hush-money payments.
