Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director Andrew McCabe leaving post ahead of planned retirement

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has told FBI staff he is stepping down effective Monday - a move that surprised even those expecting his March retirement, sources tell CNN. After Wray suggested putting McCabe into another job, which would have been a demotion, the FBI's No. 2 official chose to leave, according to the Times.
McCabe has been the subject of scrutiny in recent weeks as the FBI has faced allegations of bias in its investigations of the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.
McCabe exited the FBI building around noon on Monday after more than 20 years with the bureau.
Trump's firing of Comey in May 2017 as the FBI was investigating potential collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation led to the Justice Department's naming of Special Counsel Robert Mueller to take over the probe.
McCabe was eligible to retire in March, but with his accumulated leave, he is able to step down earlier. The president and some congressional Republicans accused him of bias.
McCabe's wife had received campaign donations from then-Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe in a 2015 state Senate bid, drawing multiple Twitter attacks from the Republican president. Sanders also said Trump continues to have "full confidence" in the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, Christopher Wray.
The inspector general is also looking into whether Comey made improper decisions, including his decision to announce the FBI would not recommend charges and his subsequent decision to publicly announce he was re-opening the investigation just 11 days before the 2016 election, after new emails were discovered.
FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is leaving his position ahead of a previously planned retirement this spring. These donations all occurred before McCabe took over as deputy director of the FBI and before he would have had any oversight into the Clinton email investigation.
The FBI says McCabe followed the proper steps to avoid conflicts of interest.
The White House was not involved in McCabe's decision, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Monday afternoon.
