FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe Steps Down; On Leave Until March Retirement

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has told staff he is stepping down in late March and will take leave until then, various TV news outlets interrupted regularly scheduled chatter to report.

McCabe became Trump's acting director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in May when Trump fired James Comey. They questioned his role in the Hillary Clinton email probe and the investigation into Russian meddling in the USA election. Sources speaking with CBS News claimed that McCabe, who has been targeted by President Trump in the past for his connection to the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, had been "forced to step down".

It has been known that McCabe would retire in March, but at this time it's unclear why it was moved up.

Mr Trump also reportedly vented frustration with the fact that Mr McCabe's wife, a Democrat, had received donations during her failed 2015 Virginia state Senate race from a political action committee run by a close ally to Hillary Clinton, Mr Trump's 2016 opponent.
