In another shakeup at the FBI, the agency’s second-highest official, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, abruptly resigned from the agency on Monday. This comes just under nine months since President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. Many consider McCabe’s departure, as well as Comey’s firing, as part of President Trump’s resistance to the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia. President Trump and some Republican lawmakers have for months attacked McCabe, saying his wife ran as a Democrat for a Virginia Senate seat in 2015 and received money from allies of the Clinton family. McCabe said he felt pressure to leave from FBI Director Christopher Wray, despite having wanted to stay until he would be eligible for a full pension.
