The FBI was reportedly investigating McAuliffe over campaign contributions he received from a Chinese billionaire in 2013.

McCabe was serving as the FBI's acting director at the time.

"How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin' James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife's campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?"

Two days before Christmas previous year, Trump was back at it.

During the call, Trump suggested that McCabe ask his wife how it feels to be a loser, in an apparent reference to her failed campaign for office, according to NBC.

It has been known that McCabe would retire in March, but at this time it's unclear why it was moved up. "90 days to go?!". McCabe will remain on Federal Bureau of Investigation payroll until mid-March, according to NBC News. You obviously can not do this. We spoke to several people who he had told about it.

He was a close ally to ex-Director James Comey, whom Trump fired last May.

McCabe has received blistering criticism from Donald Trump, but White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president had no part in McCabe's abrupt departure.

These companies control half of the internet's global advertising revenue, but greed has pushed them to chase even larger profits. George Soros isn't involved in the day-to-day management of that organization.

Trump's cognitive ability is normal, says White House doctor
He said he hadn't initially planned to administer the screening for neurological impairments, but did so at Trump's asking. The medicinal checkup additionally came in the midst of reestablished worries about Trump's mental wellbeing.


Seriously. That's it. I am not exaggerating in any way shape or form. Trump tweeted in December.

McCabe was a frequent target of Trump's ire.

When asked on January 25 to confirm or deny the report, Sanders said: "The president and Andrew McCabe have had limited and pretty non-substantive conversations".

Still, Trump has repeatedly denied collusion. He has called that inquiry a "hoax" and a "witch hunt".

The president later said he dismissed Comey over "this Russia thing", and the firing has become central to questions about whether Trump has sought to obstruct justice by impeding the Russian probe.

Trump has publicly criticized Sessions for recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe, a move that paved the way for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint Mueller after Comey's firing. Trump then hung up the phone.

The FBI says McCabe followed the proper steps to avoid conflicts of interest.
