GOP stepping up attacks on Justice, FBI over Russia probe
As Axios recently reported, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has also been "pressuring" FBI Director Christopher Wray to fire McCabe on Trump's behest.
The news about Trump's alleged discrediting campaign comes day nearly a day after the New York Timesrevealed the president ordered Mueller's firing last June but backed down after the White House counsel threatened to resign rather than follow his directions. He clarified he sees no evidence Trump wants to fire Mueller now.
A former Department of Justice appointee under former President Barack Obama said special counsel Robert Mueller "almost certainly won't indict" President Donald Trump at the conclusion of his investigation.

"Probably the reason this leaked is because people in the White House wanted to give the president some taste of what the public reaction would be if he fired Mueller to discourage him from doing that", Seidman explained.
'We know that if he tried to, it would be the end of his presidency, ' Graham said.
Trump has fumed about the missing messages, saying on Twitter that they represent "one of the biggest stories in a long time".
President Trump walks away after answering a reporter's question as he returns to the White House on January 26 in Washington, DC. I believe it's something that Mueller should look at. Ted Cruz's "New York values" slight against Trump during the Republican presidential primary.
McCarthy expressed concern that texts between Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok and Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, who were having an extramarital affair, showed a political bias against Trump. Instead, Trump's lawyers have suggested that they provide Trump's written answers to the special counsel's questions.
