FBI's Andrew McCabe Might Be Fired Days Before Retirement

FBI disciplinary office recommends firing former deputy director Andrew McCabe

WASHINGTON ― Andrew McCabe, who took over as acting head of the FBI after President Donald Trump fired former Director James Comey a year ago, may soon be fired by the Trump administration just ahead of his formal retirement date on Sunday, putting his pension in peril after more than two decades at the bureau.

Reporters had been chasing down leads about McCabe's fate in the past few days as he approached his official retirement date. As a result, the report launched an Federal Bureau of Investigation disciplinary process that recommended Mr. McCabe's firing, the newspaper said.

'Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!' the president tweeted back in July.

"The Department follows a prescribed process by which an employee may be terminated", Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said in a statement. He had attacked McCabe on the campaign trail, too, following the revelation that his wife had accepted campaign contributions from the political action committee of then-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a close Clinton ally, during a failed state Senate run.

Djokovic had further surgery on a persistent elbow injury in February. "It felt like first match I ever played on the tour". The surface doesn't react so much. "But he obviously wasn't in his top form, so I was able to take advantage of it".

Mr McCabe announced that he was stepping aside in January and taking a leave of absence. He was involved from the beginning in the investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

Though Trump has criticized McCabe as biased in favor of Clinton, 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 taking more aggressive steps by the Obama Justice Department.

McCabe has been a frequent target of President Donald Trump. Trump asked past year.

Horowitz's investigation is looking at a variety of allegations, including whether it was improper for former FBI Director James Comey to make a public announcement about not recommending prosecution over the email arrangement - he also faulted Clinton and her associates for being "extremely careless" with classified information.

Over the previous year, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been conducting a review of the FBI and DOJ's actions related to the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

Agents are commonly fired when they show a lack of candor, the Times report pointed out.

"We're moving along quite expeditiously", Horowitz said at the time.
