The deputy director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, resigned his position amid claims that Donald Trump pressured him. NBC cancelled the news of his retirement on Monday, who said McCabe would remain on the Department’s payroll until March when he will retire with full benefits.
It is said to have been part of the tensions between the FBI and the White House over an ongoing investigation into the supposed conspiracy between Trump’s election campaign and Russia.
Trump has repeatedly attacked Trump in recent weeks. His spokesman, Raj Shah, claimed that the “politically motivated top leaders” in the EBI had “corrupted the reputation of the impartial justice-seeking agency.”
He added that new director Christopher Wray, named after Trump fired James Comey in May, would “clean up the delinquency at the highest levels of the FBI.”
Earlier this month, the Washington Post reported that Donald Trump had asked McCabe who he had voted for in the 2016 election.
He also talked about McCabe about his Democratic wife and the money he received for a failed proposal in the 2015 Senate from a committee linked to Hillary Clinton.
