FBI's McCabe Expected to Be Fired This Week

The Justice Department is reviewing a recommendation that it fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, days ahead of his scheduled retirement, amid an inspector general investigation expected to be harshly critical of him, a person familiar with the matter said Wednesday. Previously, Trump reportedly asked McCabe to ask his wife how it felt to be a loser after learning McCabe's wife had run for office at the state level in Virginia, so it wasn't very surprising when McCabe went on leave in order to run out the clock before he could retire.

Through a representative, McCabe declined to comment to the Washington Post. Though Trump has criticized McCabe as biased against him, the story in question actually undercut that narrative and suggested that Federal Bureau of Investigation officials wanted to more actively probe the Clinton Foundation but were discouraged from more aggressive steps by the Obama Justice Department. It had been widely rumoured that he was planning to retire once he became eligible for a full pension this month. Mr Trump wrote in December. The office is now examining how investigations were handled at the department and the FBI in advance of the 2016 presidential election, including, notably, the Hillary Clinton email server probe.

Republicans, including Trump campaign surrogates, have suggested that Ms Clinton traded donations to the Clinton Foundation for influence.

Horowitz is also examining broad allegations of misconduct involving former FBI Director James Comey, including the public statement he made recommending that the Clinton email case be closed without charges and his decision 11 days before the election to reveal to Congress that the FBI had resumed its work.

After Mr McCabe stepped aside in January, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Mr Trump did not play a role in the decision. Nothing happened to her. Flynn lied and they destroyed his life'.
