REPORT: Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe To Retire Next Year

Are the rats jumping off the sinking ship? Who would have called this one? Hopefully more swamp creatures will follow.

The Daily Caller Reports:

Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe plans to retire from the bureau early next year, according to a new report.

McCabe is retiring amid heavy scrutiny from congressional Republicans over his roles in the Russia investigation and the Clinton email probe. Top Republican lawmakers like Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley have recently called for McCabe’s ouster.

According to The Washington Post, McCabe will leave his post in a few months, after he becomes eligible for full pension benefits.

McCabe, 49, met for hours earlier this week with members of three Congressional committees to discuss his work on the Trump and Clinton investigations.

He was interviewed on Tuesday by the House Intelligence Committee, which focused on his involvement in handling the infamous Trump dossier. Fox News reported that McCabe offered few details about the dossier or the Russia investigation, which was opened at the end of July 2016.

… McCabe has faced the heaviest criticism of late over a text message sent last year by Peter Strzok, the former FBI counterintelligence officer who supervised the collusion investigation.

… McCabe’s departure comes days after The Post reported that FBI general counsel Jim Baker will be reassigned.

No one would miss a few less FBI swamp creatures inside the beltway. Maybe McCabe will start a trend.
