During an interview that aired on CBS’s 60 Minutes on Sunday, Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe said that United States Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire into the White House.

McCabe said the offer came in the context of a conversation about the firing of former FBI Director James Comey and if the Russian investigation was impacting Trump’s decision.

Here is what he told 60 Minutes’ Scott Pelley:

Republicans press for hearing with Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein

Republicans press for hearing with Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday urged his Democratic colleagues to haul former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein before Congress. Ranking Member Doug Collins, R-Ga., called on Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., to convene a hearing to take the testimony of the law enforcement officials or subpoena them for interviews after McCabe admitted he considered secretly taping President Trump.

During an interview that aired on CBS’s 60 Minutes on Sunday, Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe said that United States Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire into the White House .

WASHINGTON — The deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein , suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration

I can’t describe to you accurately enough the pressure and the chaos that Rod and I were trying to operate under at that time. It was incredibly turbulent, incredibly stressful. And it was clear to me that that stress was— was impacting the deputy attorney general. We talked about why the president had insisted on firing the director and whether or not he was thinking about the Russia investigation and did that impact his decision. And in the context of that conversation, the deputy attorney general offered to wear a wire into 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. And in fact, he brought it up in the next meeting we had. I never actually considered taking him up on the offer. I did discuss it with my general counsel and my leadership team back at the FBI after he brought it up the first time.

Pelley then probed what Rosenstein intended to gain by wearing a wire to the White House.

McCabe said this: “I can’t characterize what Rod was thinking or what he was hoping at that moment. But the reason you would have someone wear a concealed recording device would be to collect evidence and in this case, what was the true nature of the president’s motivation in calling for the firing of Jim Comey?”

He also said when the plan was discussed with the general counsel of the FBI,  the general counsel had a “heart attack.”

“I think the general counsel had a heart attack,” McCabe admitted. “And when he got up off the floor, he said, “I, I, that’s a bridge too far. We’re not there yet.”

Shortly before the 60 Minutes interview aired Sunday night, Trump tweeted out this:
