Andrew McCabe’s strange meeting with Reince Priebus, and the leak that followed it
We don’t know exactly what led to Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe suddenly resigning on Monday, rather than remaining in his post until his announced retirement date a few weeks from now (reportedly in March 2018).
According to Fox News, the abrupt action is described by a source as a “removal.” Other news outlets, including NBC and the New York Times, agree that McCabe was forced out: offered the alternative of accepting removal from his position, or resigning immediately and starting his terminal leave. He chose to make his resignation effective immediately.
Speculation on why he had to do this is divided. Some are suggesting the timing is about FBI Director Christopher Wray having gone on Sunday to review the House memo on the FBI’s use of FISA authority against the Trump campaign.
Others think it’s about information in the upcoming report from the DOJ Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe.
We may find out soon enough either way. But the possibility that it’s related to both near-term due-outs – the House memo and the IG report – is highlighted by an article posted at The Federalist on Monday, 29 January. In it, we see fresh evidence of questionable behavior by McCabe, and possibly someone else closely connected with him at the FBI.
