Yesterday Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe was fired yesterday by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. A representative of McCabe learned last night from a press release about the firing, reports have concluded.
This decision has came less than two days before his expected retirement, where he was expected to retire on Sunday, on his 50th birthday. This decision also came after the firing of James Comey, director of the FBI before President Trump asked for his resignation in early May.
President Trump had always viewed negatively of McCabe, despite interviewing him for the role of FBI Director shortly after Comey was fired. Despite the interview, Trump had disapproved of McCabe’s leadership and decision making, even taunting Jeff Sessions for not firing him yet.
