A defiant Andrew McCabe said Tuesday he will not “under any circumstances” accept a plea deal if indicted for lying about leaks to the press.
“Will you take a deal in order to go on with the rest of your life if there is no big criminal attachment — you don’t have to do any time or anything like that?” CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked McCabe in an interview.
“Absolutely not, under any circumstances,” said McCabe, who joined CNN as an analyst Aug. 23.
“No deal?” Cuomo asked.
“Absolutely not, under any circumstances,” McCabe repeated.
