McCabe Stepped Down Amid Pressure From Wray

  • Andrew McCabe Steps Down at FBI in Widely Expected Move

It is unclear what exactly prompted McCabe's decision to step down early.

News reported he had enough accumulated leave to step down earlier, while CBS News reported he was forced out.

Republicans have noted that McCabe's wife previously ran as a Democrat for a seat in Virginia's state Senate and received donation funds from then-Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a close ally of Hillary and Bill Clinton, the former president.

Trump also targeted McCabe for the FBI's investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while serving as the country's secretary of state.

Mr Comey had been overseeing the bureau's investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Later that day, The Washington Post reported that during a meeting in the Oval Office Trump once asked McCabe how he voted.

"I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy's office - that there's no way [Trump] gets elected - but I'm afraid we can't take that risk", Strzok wrote to Page, who worked directly under McCabe.

The British government said Thursday that President Trump will visit the United Kingdom later this year. Trump didn't say when the state visit would be rescheduled.

"Now we know the fix was in, and I think the logical thing is, if the fix was in on the Clinton investigation, and if these same people - the top people at the FBI - started and ran the Trump-Russia investigation, might there be some bad things going on there as well", Rep. Jim Jordan asked while on Fox and Friends on Friday. Members of the Florida Congressional Delegation have been among the staunchest Trump White House defenders, and the first to respond was Pensacola Rep. Matt Gaetz.

2 man at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, is on terminal leave after months of attacks by the USA president, and two months before his planned retirement.

While McCabe has consistently been at the center of controversy since the election, he appeared to be in President Trump's good graces at one point a year ago.

Last week, The Washington Post reported that after James Comey was sacked in May 2017 and McCabe assumed the director's job on an acting basis, the president asked him in a private discussion whom he had voted for in the presidential election.

Trump has claimed Comey's leadership left the bureau in "tatters".

Special prosecutor and former FBI director Robert Mueller is now in charge of leading the investigation.
