Citing "a source familiar with the matter", Reuters news agency said Mr McCabe was leaving his post immediately, despite the fact he had been due to stand down in March.

According to Sarah Sanders, the White House Press Secretary, the oval house does not "have any specific comments" on the reports, and she referred reporters to the FBI "on any specifics". McCabe was a career FBI official, not a political appointee.

A few thoughts now on the deep state, Democrats and disaster.

Beyond exaggerating the dollar amount (even if you throw in $207,788 from the Virginia Democratic Party, the total still falls short of $700,000) Trump got the timeline wrong.

The departures of the FBI chief of staff and general counsel were also revealed this month. I wish Andy well.

McCabe has been "telling friends he felt pressure from head of the bureau to leave", The Times notes, citing two people close to him.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder tweeted in defense of McCabe shortly after the news broke, calling him a "dedicated public servant" and warned of the impact that "bogus attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice can have long-term".

And later that month, Trump indicated to NBC's Lester Holt that an investigation into possible ties with Russia and the Trump campaign was behind the reason for firing Comey.

McCabe served as interim FBI director, after Trump fired James Comey.

Yesterday, McCabe's boss, FBI Director Christopher Wray, went to Capital Hill to view the memo.

In the very next paragraph, Wray explained that McCabe had submitted his intention to retire, suggesting a connection between the findings of the IG report and McCabe's decision. McCabe told the president he didn't vote. His wife, Jill, received almost $500,000 for her failed 2015 Virginia state Senate campaign from a political action committee run by then-Gov.

Former FBI director James Comey gave a message of support to deputy director Andrew McCabe, following his resignation earlier on Monday.

"FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is racing the clock to retire with full benefits".

"He ought to be replaced".

"Think about it. Those same people, the fix was in on the Clinton investigation, they were then the ones who started and ran the Russia-Trump investigation".
