Lawyer for Andrew McCabe tells Trump to "stop lying"

Michael Bromwich, lawyer to former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, accused President Trump of defaming his client in a tweet Friday, adding, "stop lying about the McCabes."

The big picture: McCabe is reportedly planning to sue the Trump administration for defamation and wrongful termination after being fired in March by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. His removal — days before he was set to retire — was cheered by Trump who called it "a great day for Democracy." Bromwich has previously said his team would "not be responding to each childish, defamatory, disgusting & false tweet by the President."
