"I want to believe the path you threw in Andy's office [McCabe’s] – that c & # 39; is in no way elected, but I'm afraid I can't take the risk. It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event that you die before the age of 40. "
All & # 39; epoch, the FBI agents referred to the Trump campaign with the code name "Crossfire Hurricane" (one for the Rolling Stones fans there), so this reference in the testimony of Ms Page to the judiciary committee:
