Trump calls for investigation into ex-FBI official McCabe

President of the United States Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday to once again lash out at former Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Andrew McCabe, calling for an official investigation into his alleged ties to Hillary Clinton. Trump claimed that Virginia Democrats, led by a close ally of Hillary Clinton, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, gave $700,000 to McCabe's wife Jill during her campaign for Virginia state Senate seat in 2015. Trump also alleged that the payment affected McCabe's decision to end the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails.

"Why isn’t disgraced FBI official Andrew McCabe being investigated for the $700,000 Crooked Hillary Democrats in Virginia, led by Clinton best friend Terry M (under FBI investigation that they killed) gave to McCabe’s wife in her run for office? Then dropped case on Clinton!" Trump wrote.

McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in March this year, just 24 hours before he was eligible to retire with full benefits. The cited reason for his firing was "an unauthorized disclosure to the news media" as well as "lack of candor." Trump subsequently said that McCabe's removal marks a great day for the FBI.
