DC rumors swirl as FBI deputy director steps down amid 'Russiagate' hearings Political pundits are spinning the news of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe's departure from the agency.
Bill Clinton was a successful president, but he was not a good one: He drove the country apart, degraded our political discourse and brought dishonor to the White House.
Trump named Wray the new FBI director in August, and kept up the pressure on McCabe. The narcissist's first instinct is always to blame others.
A slew of revelations on Monday may amount to a turning point in the special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. It'll be a heavy lift. The top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, Congressman Adam Schiff, says this Republican memo was so irresponsible it cherry-picked, in his phrase, the intelligence so unfairly that he needed to respond with one of his own. So, at least that's a start at bipartisanship. Some allege that the Obama administration used the so-called Steele dossier to get a warrant to monitor the machinations of Carter Page, an unpaid foreign policy advisor to the Trump campaign.
The end to his tenure comes after the 49-year-old became fully eligible for a pension after spending 20 years working in the bureau. No doubt there is more, hidden under a self-serving veil of secrecy. Wray's email insinuated the departure was related to a forthcoming Inspector General report that examines the FBI's conduct during the 2016 presidential election.
Bowdich also oversaw the investigation of two U.S. Border Patrol agents killed in the line of duty. They are among six indicted city detectives who have pleaded guilty and among four who are cooperating with the government during the trial.

Tough legal case for obstruction of justice might be weak, the impeachment case is strong.
"Former Director [Robert] Mueller told the story about how he went to see President Bush right after 9/11". By that time, his wife's campaign was over and his involvement was not seen as a conflict.
Won't you be my neighbor? Democrats will say the evidence shows Trump should be impeached, Republicans will say otherwise.
It's a cruise built around cartoon characters. He is also at the center of scrutiny because his wife received funding from then-Gov. "He served with distinction for two decades". The New York Times reported that Wray had expressed concerns about a soon-to-be-released DOJ inspector general report.
A week after his initial letter, Comey informed Congress that the emails on Weiner's laptop had not changed the bureau's decision not to charge Clinton in the email investigation.
Some guy stapled together scenes from 127 movies to create this cover of The Proclaimer's 1988 song "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)".

What a scary thought that must be for his opponents. "I think that's what's going to dictate how successful I will be". As a professional, it's what we do. "Just looking at my own side, I didn't feel those conditions before", he said.
Here's who's coming to President Trump's State of the Union
Trump's first major policy accomplishment was the new tax law, just passed last month. "I think it's real clear", Jordan said. The State of the Union is one of Trump's main opportunities this year to make a pitch to the American public.
Report: Trump tried to fire Mueller
Cory Booker (D-NJ) said it showed Trump's "tendencies" to do things in "an authoritarian and anti-democratic manner". There is no obstruction whatsoever. "I would do it under oath, absolutely". "If there were good cause, I would act".
