BREAKING: McCabe Throws In The Towel — Will Retire "Early Next Year"

Facing Republican attacks, FBI’s deputy director plans to retire early next year


FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is planning to retire in early 2018 when he becomes fully eligible for pension benefits, according to a new report.
McCabe, 49, has faced renewed criticism from Republican critics in recent weeks following accusations of bias in the FBI and the belief that the bureau let Secretary of State Hillary Clinton off easily during its investigation into her private email server.
McCabe, 49, holds a unique position in the political firestorm surrounding the FBI. He was former director James B. Comey’s right-hand man, a position that involved him in most of the FBI’s actions that vex President Trump as well as the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state, a matter that still riles Democrats.
When Trump fired Comey in May, that meant McCabe had to stay — first to run the agency until a new director was in place and then to take the political heat for decisions made by his former boss.

"Get Paid to Write at Home!

“Andy’s in a difficult position now . . . because of the hyperpartisan political environment,’’ said John Pistole, who held the FBI’s No. 2 job for six years under former director Robert S. Mueller III. Mueller now serves as special counsel, running the investigation into whether any Trump associates conspired with Russian agents to interfere with the 2016 election.
Pistole said McCabe “is weathering the storm.”
“It’s disappointing,” he added, “to see how the criticism of the FBI is being used to try to undermine the credibility of the Mueller investigation. I think they’ve figured out they can’t undermine Bob’s integrity, so they’re just going to go after whoever they can dig up any dirt on."
