FBI Deputy Director ‘Ought To Be Replaced,’ Says Top Senate Republican

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley is calling on Andrew McCabe to be replaced as the FBI’s deputy director.

But Grassley, a Republican, said that President Trump should steer clear of the matter. Instead, FBI Director Christopher Wray should remove McCabe, who has come under heavy fire from Republicans over his roles in the Clinton email and Russia collusion investigations.

“Trump ought to stay out of it. I think it’s a Christopher Wray job,” Grassley told reporters on Monday, according to Bloomberg News.

“He oughta be replaced,” Grassley said of McCabe. “And I’ve said that before and I’ve said it to people who can do it.”

The bureau’s second highest-ranking official, McCabe will be interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday. He will be asked about his role in the Russia investigation and his knowledge about the infamous Trump dossier, the 35-page document written by former British spy Christopher Steele and funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC.

There definitely needs to be a shakeup at the bureau. Will it happen? Stay tuned.
