Former FBI assistant Director Andrew McCabe said in an interview on Tuesday that he believes it is possible that the President is Trump a Russian asset and thinks “that is why we have to start our investigation.”

McCabe has said in the past that the FBI had a good reason to open a counterintelligence investigation into whether Trump was the cooperation with Russia and a possible threat to national security.

The former official was on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” when he was asked whether he thinks Trump can still be a Russian capital. He said that he was “so scared” to the completion of the special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation.

He was also asked whether he thinks Trump is fit to serve, and said it is up to him, the determination.

McCabe told CBS News “60 minutes he met with the investigators after the ex-FBI Director James Comey is burning.

“I was very worried that I was in the situation, the Russia-case, on absolutely solid ground, in a non-erasable,” McCabe said. “I would be quickly assigned away, or new, or be triggered, the case could not be closed or disappear in the night, without leaving a trace.”

He added, “I wanted to make sure that our case was on solid ground, and when someone came up behind me and closed it, and tried to get out of the way, you would not be able to do that without creating a record of why you made this decision.”

McCabe was fired and accused by the justice Department in the last year, misleading investigators during an internal probe into a news media publication. Trump has slammed McCabe via Twitter, accused the ex-officials of plotting a coup with the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
