Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who served under then-Director James Comey, wondered if President Trump will hold the line or if there will be any Republicans who "cross the Rubicon" and acknowledge the phone call with the Ukrainian president was an abuse of power.
CHRIS CUOMO, CNN HOST: Do you think there is anything that would force Republicans to acknowledge that this was wrong behavior? That this was an abuse of power? Not necessarily impeachable or worthy of removal but wrong? They won't even say wrong most of the time.
MCCABE: Yeah, you know, I think can you have a different Republican on the show every night and ask them that same question that you just asked Representative Kelly and they are just not going to answer it because it is an obvious answer and it is also one that directly contradicts what the president -- the line the president wants them to hold.
So will they ever be able to kind of cross that Rubicon and publicly admit that what happened here was an abuse of power and is not something that should have happened by the president of the United States? We'll see. I think the only chance of getting there is through the public airing of the facts by the witnesses themselves as Congressman Schiff described earlier on the show.
