President Donald Trump took a dig at Andrew McCabe in a tweet Monday night, a day after the former deputy FBI director set off a firestorm during his "60 Minutes" interview.

“Remember this, Andrew McCabe didn’t go to the bathroom without the approval of Leakin’ James Comey!” Trump tweeted.

During the interview, telecasted Sunday, McCabe addressed several matters including how Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein initiated a conversation about the possibility of removing Trump from office using the 25th Amendment. The amendment allows the vice-president and a majority of the cabinet to consider a president unfit to perform his tasks and duties.

“It was an unbelievably stressful time. I can’t even describe for you how many things must have been coursing through the deputy attorney general’s mind at that point. So it was really something that he kinda threw out in a very frenzied chaotic conversation,” McCabe said.

He also added that Rosenstein spoke about wearing a wire to secretly record Trump’s conversations in the White House.

“He said, ‘I never get searched when I go into the White House. I could easily wear a recording device. They wouldn’t know it was there.’ Now, he was not joking. He was absolutely serious,” McCabe said.

Post the interview Trump tweeted, “Wow. So many lies by now disgraced acting FBI director Andrew McCabe. He was fired for lying, and now his story gets even more deranged. He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by [former attorney general] Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught.”

“The biggest abuse of power and corruption scandal in our history, and it’s much worse than we thought. Andrew McCabe (FBI) admitted to plotting a coup (government overthrow) when he was serving in the FBI, before he was fired for lying & leaking,” Trump said in another tweet.

On Feb.14, CBS released excerpts of the interview, post which, the Department of Justice released a statement saying Rosenstein rejected McCabe’s claims.

“The deputy attorney general [DAG] never authorized any recording that Mr McCabe references. As the DAG previously has stated, based on his personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th amendment, nor was the DAG in a position to consider invoking the 25th amendment,” the statement read, the Guardian reported.

Trump too attacked McCabe by tweeting, “McCabe s a disgrace to the FBI and a disgrace to our Country. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

McCabe was fired from the FBI on Mar. 16, 2018, two days before he was due to retire. Sessions fired him stating that McCabe had made "an unauthorized disclosure to the news media" and "lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions."

On the other hand, Trump has attached the label "Leakin'" to Comey ever since the ex-FBI director, who was fired in 2017, leaked memos of his conversations with Trump to the media.
