(National Sentinel)Â Deep State:Â FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has announced that he will step down from his position, fueling speculation that the so-called “FISA memo” may soon be released and may implicate him as part of a plot to spy on the Trump campaign.
As reported byÂ NBC News:
McCabe has been at the center of ongoing tensions between the White House and the FBI and has reportedly been under pressure to quit from President Donald Trump, whose campaign is being investigated for possible collusion with Russia.
McCabe reportedly resigned on Monday. He will remain on the FBI’s payroll until he is formally able to retire,Â NBC News said.
In recent weeks the White House has put pressure on McCabe after he was implicated in text messages exchanged between anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
The two discussed an “insurance policy” to allegedly undermine President Donald J. Trump’s campaign and, possibly, his presidency in the event he defeated Hillary Clinton.
The texts referenced discussing the insurance policy in “Andy’s office,” which is believed to be McCabe.
Also, last weekÂ administration spokesman Raj Shah referenced reports of pressure from the White House to fire McCabe by saying in a statement that Trump “believes politically motivated senior leaders” of the FBI “have tainted the agency’s reputation for unbiased pursuit of justice” and that the new director he “appointed” will “clean up the misconduct at the highest levels of the FBI.”
Some believe that McCabe may be implicated with others in the FISA memo, which allegedly details abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. There has been speculation that the FBI used the unsubstantiated — and unvetted — “Trump dossier,” which was paid for by the Clinton campaign, as a legitimate intelligence document in order to obtain a surveillance warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.
