“There is no way for us to know, at this point, but even if it might have been justified, but it can also be corrupted,” the ship said on ABC News’ “This week,” referring to McCabe’s potential role in a probe investigating the trump campaign possible, the relations with Russia.
The ranking Democrat, added that he thought it was difficult to know whether the fire was legitimate, because it happened before the release of an inspector general report expected at the completion of McCabe was not forthcoming about matters in connection with the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s E-Mails.

The ship also asked whether the President Trump the “badgering” – Sessions, to the fire, McCabe, and “any of the James Comey associates” played a role, because of their connection to the former FBI Director.
“Each of them was targeted by the administration, the Republicans and Congress. And that is because they confirm James Comey? This is a question we must answer,” the ship said.
