FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe testified before a congressional committee that his then-boss James Comey told him about President Trump’s loyalty pledge.
McCabe’s told the House Intelligence Committee that Comey said he was pressured by President Trump to stop investigating the Russia scandal, CNN reports .
Comey refused, and Trump fired the FBI director, prompting allegations that the president obstructed justice. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team is investigating the firing as part of a broader probe into the relationship between Trump’s campaign and Russia.
McCabe testified for nearly eight hours this week.
