'Phony Hillary Clinton Investigation': Trump Smears Retiring FBI Deputy Director

27 December 2017

Mr Trump was referring to donations from the state Democratic party to Mr McCabe's wife Jill, who ran for the Virginia state senate.

Henry said Sunday morning on "Fox & Friends": "Andrew McCabe, in addition to his wife getting all this money from McAuliffe in this race, he was using, allegedly, his Federal Bureau of Investigation official email account to promote her campaign".

President Trump is reacting to reports about the retirement of Andrew McCabe as the FBI's deputy director by tweeting falsehoods about McCabe's wife.

Huckabee included in her tweet a link to an article titled "The FBI is Trumpland" which described the fall out after FBI Director James Comey made the decision not to press charges against Hillary Clinton, claiming there was a lot of "deep antipathy to Hillary Clinton".

News broke this week that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will retire next year.

Earlier today, from Axios AM: President Trump's public lashing of the FBI, and the criticism by normally supportive Republican members of Congress, have damaged bureau morale, the New York.

McCabe reportedly testified privately before Congress this week that former FBI Director James Comey told McCabe about conversations he had with Trump right after they happened.

McCabe has come under fire from Republicans over the past year because of the bureau's investigation into the Clinton email issue as well as the probe into possible collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

After obtaining a law degree from Washington University and interning at the Justice Department's criminal division, McCabe joined the FBI in 1996 as an agent at the bureau's NY field office.

Even though Jill McCabe lost the race and never ran again, the Justice Department followed up on those claims after Trump's election, announcing an investigation on January 12 into "allegations that the FBI Deputy Director should have been recused from participating in certain investigative matters".

President Trump has been critical of McCabe for months, blasting him as a "Comey friend."

But even among some of those who dislike Mr. McCabe, he earned their grudging respect when he stood up to Mr. Trump and defended the F.B.I. and Mr. Comey's tenure during a heated congressional hearing in May while he was acting director.

McCabe subsequently stood up to Trump, telling the Senate Intelligence Committee that the investigation into Russian election meddling is "highly significant".
