Trump slams Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy, who reportedly plans to retire

MSNBC Contributors Muse Whether Dems Are Using Russia Hearings for Politics

Trump also took notice of James Baker, the FBI's top lawyer, amid reports he was being reassigned as Director Christopher Wray begins to assembly his own team.

McCabe, the Post reported, "has been the target of Republican critics for more than a year", and "plans to retire in a few months when he becomes fully eligible for pension benefits, according to people familiar with the matter".

A spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation declined to comment.

NPR's Carrie Johnson tweeted Saturday, she has also been told by people with knowledge of the matter that McCabe is likely to take vacation time that he has accrued after almost 20 years as an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, which would effectively have him out of the building before his official final day at the Federal Bureau of Investigation sometime in March.

Damian Green resigns from Cabinet position
Ms Maltby's parents, Colin and Victoria Maltby, said they were "pleased" the Cabinet Office inquiry had concluded. They praised their 31-year-old daughter for her courage in speaking out about the "abuse of authority".

Republicans in Congress have criticized McCabe and accused him of harboring bias against Trump.

Earlier this week, McCabe gave a confidential and closed-door testimony before the House Intelligence Committee.

In a second tweet Saturday, Trump suggested that McCabe's wife, a Virginia politician, had been given $700,000 by allies of Hillary Clinton at a time he was involved in the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server.

Shortly after Comey's firing, former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel of an investigation into whether any members of Trump's campaign conspired with Russian agents during the campaign. In a tweet in July, Trump asked why his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, did not replace McCabe, who Trump described as Comey's friend.

President Of Miss America Organization Resigns Amid Scandal
Hagan did not respond to a message seeking comment on the resignations of Randle, CEO Sam Haskell and Chairman Lynn Weidner . Dan Myers, the organization board's vice-chair will be taking over as interim chairman.

Seeking Mueller's removal "would have severe repercussions for Americans' sense of justice here at home and for our reputation for fairness around the world", they wrote in a letter to President Donald Trump on Friday that was coordinated by Georgetown Law's Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection. Trump tweeted on Saturday.

The letters come as Mueller's team is facing heightened scrutiny in recent weeks following reports that two FBI officials who would later be assigned to the special counsel's investigation called Trump an "idiot" and "loathsome human" in a series of text messages previous year.

Moscow has denied any such activity, and Trump has dismissed talk of possible collusion as a "witch hunt" led by Democrats disappointed about his election victory.
