Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe kept memos of his interactions with President Trump, according to multiple news reports.
The Associated Press, CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post all reported on the existence of the memos and cited anonymous sources close to the case and the now-fired McCabe.
It’s unclear how many memos there are and their exact contents, but they could be of use to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has been leading a wide-ranging investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, and possible obstructions of justice.
McCabe’s former boss, former FBI director James Comey, also kept memos where he detailed his meetings with the president, including Trump’s alleged requests for Comey’s personal “loyalty” and to drop his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Several media organizations, including USA TODAY, sued to have the memos released, but a judge rejected the suit, explaining they could affect the Russia investigation.
