Andrew McCabe Urged To Step Down As FBI Deputy Director

Andrew McCabe, FBI deputy director, steps down amid criticism

They should be - because the FBI has been weaponized politically, and that should be intolerable to Americans of all ideological stripes.

However, emails and correspondence released by the FBI show McCabe recused himself from any public corruption cases ties to Virginia. "And I would refer you to the FBI for any specifics on the things that are taking place today".

"Getting to read a fake news book excerpt at the Grammys seems like a great consolation prize for losing the presidency", Donald Jr. tweeted out.

Similarly, the president cannot be prosecuted for firing the FBI director, no matter the cause.

McCabe will remain on the FBI payroll until he is eligible to retire with full benefits in mid-March, according to NBC News, citing sources. The panel also voted against releasing the counter memo Democrats wrote.

EWING: That's right, yeah. His memo is classified, too. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Trump had no role in the move. The answer, obviously, should be yes. But those arrested reportedly said it's not them in the pictures, and they don't know why they were picked up.

"I found it unusual", Edwards said, adding that he'd never before seen a Baltimore police officer conducting investigations down in Maryland's Prince George's County.

But that has not stopped Trump from repeatedly insinuating that McCabe, and other FBI officials, are partisan law enforcement officials harboring a bias against him.

EWING: I think that's definitely behind some of the objections the Justice Department has made here.

"The president wasn't part of this decision-making process".

But for a period of at least three weeks, according to people involved at the time, nothing much happened - a lag that has sparked the inspector general's questions. Since it's a partisan document, it's a Republican view of the way the story went down. In that letter, Comey said he received a formal briefing on the laptop issue a day earlier. The same was true for President Richard Nixon.

FBI Director Christopher Wray sent a message to all bureau employees on Monday night regarding Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's surprise resignation.

EWING: Well, you make a great point. It's been accused of being the tool of power.

James Comey has heaped praises on outgoing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe after the news of his departure surfaced. Edwards said Jenkins told him he was "looking for a monster" and had followed the suspect from Baltimore. There's a new turn.

The FBI had no official comment. In that role, he identified the emerging kidnapping trend of Mexican cartel-related groups and, in response, created the country's first FBI squad to pinpoint kidnapping threats on both sides of the United States-Mexico border. As Andy Grewal explains in the Yale Journal of Regulation, if a Member of Congress accepts a bribe to vote a certain way, the vote itself is still legal. He's had two indictments. "90 days to go?!" he included. He added that bogus attacks on the FBI and Justice Department were meant to "distract attention from a legitimate criminal inquiry" and were doing "long term, unnecessary damage to these foundations of our government".

In September, or even October, indict Jared Kushner and Don Jr., and see how the president reacts.

SHAPIRO: NPR national security editor Phil Ewing, thanks for walking us through this.
