FBI officials recommend former #2 at FBI Andrew McCabe be fired

The recommendation from the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility is likely to add fuel to the political fire surrounding former deputy director Andrew McCabe, who abruptly stepped down from his post earlier this year but technically remained an Federal Bureau of Investigation employee.

McCabe did not return a call seeking comment.

Previously, Trump reportedly asked McCabe to ask his wife how it felt to be a loser after learning McCabe's wife had run for office at the state level in Virginia, so it wasn't very surprising when McCabe went on leave in order to run out the clock before he could retire.

Sessions could allow McCabe to retire and receive his full pension.

A McCabe associate spoke to the Wall Street Journal in October 2016 for an article about a bureaucratic standoff between the FBI and Justice Department over its various investigations into Clinton.

The President repeatedly took to Twitter to blast Mr McCabe's role overseeing FBI investigations of the Clinton Foundation - a philanthropic enterprise established by former President Bill Clinton - and of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server when she was Secretary of State. Trump defeated Clinton in the presidential election that year. Representatives for Ms Clinton have said she never acted in an official capacity based on donations.

McCabe was not deputy director at the time and was not involved in the Clinton investigation before it was first closed in July 2016. That process includes recommendations from career employees and no termination decision is final until the conclusion of that process.

A spokeswoman for the Justice Department acknowledged to The Times that McCabe's employment is under review.

CBN News contacted Justice Department spokesperson Sarah Igur Flores who said in a statement, "The Department follows a prescribed process by which an employee may be terminated".
