Trump prolongs feud with FBI's McCabe over Clinton ties
27 December, 2017, 00:49 | Author: Dustin Murphy
"FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is racing the clock to retire with full benefits", Trump tweeted at 3:30 p.m. He quickly climbed the administrative ladder and ended up holding senior positions at the counterterrorism division and the national security branch before being appointed deputy director on January 29, 2016.
The 49-year-old CT native first came under fire from the President's associates last October after it was revealed that then-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe had donated $467,500 to his wife Jill McCabe's Democratic bid for the state's Senate.
But this isn't the first time McCabe has weathered attacks from Trump and some say he's only looking to retire because he becomes eligible for his full pension in March. Mr. McCabe will most likely follow the path of other highly qualified F.B.I. senior officials eligible to retire who leave after securing a lucrative job in the private sector.
According to the Virginia Public Access Project, the two major donations that Jill McCabe received, totaling almost $700,000, came from a political action committee of Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat and Clinton friend, and from the Virginia Democratic Party.
US President Donald Trump quickly reacted to news about McCabe's alleged departure from office, reminding of McCabe's wife ties to Clinton.
The FBI has said McCabe did not start overseeing the Clinton investigation until his wife's state Senate campaign was over.
Earlier this year, the US intelligence community released a report that stated Russian Federation had meddled in the 2016 election, showing a preference for Trump over Clinton, his opponent. "His only motivation is to support and defend the Constitution".
"Normally, someone being investigated for obstruction of justice who intimidates and threatens three key witnesses against him (here Comey, McCabe and Baker) risks additional witness tampering charges", Eisen wrote. You obviously can not do this.
Trump's frequent and blistering attacks on the nation's premier law enforcement agency have proven a tough challenge for Wray, who took the reins in August after Trump fired James Comey as he was leading the bureau's probe into possible Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election.
But Trump's tweets could have an even bigger impact than damaging McCabe's reputation.
On Saturday, Trump celebrated McCabe's prospective retirement, hinting in tweets that the news confirmed his suspicions that the Federal Bureau of Investigation official was biased against him.
