Donald Trump doubled down on his lie accusing fired Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe of illegally taking $700,000 from his wife's campaign, even though it is demonstrably false and easily disprovable. The fact is that a Super PAC allied with McCabe's wife, who ran for Virginia State Senate in 2015, received the money from then Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe's political action committee.
