FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe continues to be at the center of the FISA memo controversy recently. Whether a major player or minor player is unclear at this point, but he is taking no chances.
McCabe has resigned, effective promptly, based on BBC News
A source acquainted with the circumstances informed BBC News that McCabe is taking “terminal leave” for now until he can officially retire when his pension kicks in.
NBC reported that his retirement would take effect mid-March. In December, the Washington Post initially noted his retirement would come in the spring.
McCabe, who at one point was acting director from May to August 2017 after President Trump quickly fired then-director James Comey, continues to be at the center of concerns between the White House and FBI leadership in recent months. Comey designated McCabe to be deputy director in January 2016.
Lately, the Washington Post noted that after Trump dismissed Comey, he connected with with McCabe in the Oval Office and questioned him whom he voted for in the 2016 election.
This month, the FBI unveiled internal documents to display that McCabe’s oversight role in FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server commenced only in February 2016 when he assumed his role as deputy director – 3 months after his wife Jill McCabe lost her bid for a Virginia state Senate seat as a Democrat. Trump and other Republicans have stated McCabe had a clash of interest because of his wife’s election bid.
McCabe is still component of an investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general, who is investigating the FBI’s management of its Clinton probe.
