McCabe and Rosenstein quarreled over recusals in front of Mueller

Former FBI acting Director Andrew McCabe says his book has been delayed because of an FBI review and he's concerned he's been singled out for what he calls "irregular unfair treatment".

McCabe was sacked by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein earlier this year after he reportedly leaked sensitive material regarding Hillary Clinton's email probe to the mainstream media.

In the meeting with Mueller shortly after he was appointed special counsel to lead the Russian Federation probe, Rosenstein pointed to the fact that years before, McCabe wore a campaign T-shirt in a family picture supporting his wife's bid for state senate, the source said.

Asked about speculation he had been prepared to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Trump said the two remain on good terms.

The FBI isn't immediately responding to a request for comment. They duked it out in an intimate meeting with Mueller.

Both were right. Rosenstein was a player in one of the matters to be investigated and McCabe had an obvious bias regarding that incident. The Republican-controlled House Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena for the documents, but they were not provided by the October 4 deadline. FBI Director Chris Wray declined to commit to providing the memos when he testified before the Senate Homeland Security Committee Wednesday.

McCabe was sacked in March, one day before he was set to retire.

Yet, neither recused himself.

McCabe and his wife, Jill, have been frequent targets of President Trump's ire.

Trump has tried to undermine the FBI and Justice Department, calling their investigation of his presidential campaign and its possible connection to Russian Federation "a witch hunt".
