Trump Quotes Hannity Blasting McCabe: ‘Admitted to Plotting a Coup’


President Donald Trump tonight tweeted out a quote from the intro of Sean Hannity‘s Fox News show railing against Andrew McCabe.

McCabe told 60 Minutes that Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had raised the idea of invoking the 25th Amendment against Trump and seeing how much of the Cabinet would support such action.

Hannity spent a lot of his show railing against McCabe and the “deep state” tonight, and said this at the top:

“Many in the deep state, well, they have other goals, as we report in our Hannity Watch on the biggest abuse of power corruption scandal in history and it’s much worse than we thought. Look, for example, Andrew McCabe over the weekend admitting to plotting a bureaucratic coup when he was serving in the FBI before he was fired for lying and leaking some 5 or 6 times.”

The president, who called these actions “illegal and treasonous” on Twitter this morning, quoted Hannity tonight and added, “Treason!”
