Andrew McCabe, the deputy director of the FBI and one of President Trump’s favorite boogeymen, has announced that he will be stepping down from his post two months early.
Source tells @CBSNews's Pat Milton that McCabe was forced to step down. He's currently on leave and will officially retire in March.

Slated to leave the Bureau in March for a retirement that was announced long ago, McCabe’s abrupt departure is sure to raise eyebrows around Washington, especially in the offices of one Robert Mueller and his team of investigators.
McCabe has been the subject of much controversy in recent months as the President and his army of slobbering sycophants seized on McCabe’s close relationship with fired FBI Director James Comey as somehow being evidence of “bias” in the FBI investigation into the Trump team’s secret communications with agents of the Russian Federation.
How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin’ James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife’s campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?

This resignation coming so soon on the heels of reports that Trump ally Attorney General Jeff Sessions was pressuring McCabe to walk, that President Trump himself had demanded loyalty from McCabe and asked him who he voted for, and that Trump himself wanted him out are bound to raise a new host of questions from Special Counsel Mueller’s office – questions that McCabe is suddenly in a great position to answer.
