Trump goes after FBI Deputy Director McCabe, who confirms Comey testimony…

We’re all over the place today. Remember Deputy FBI Director McCabe? That’s the guy that Trey Gowdy said probably won’t have a job in a week. Well, he’s retiring.

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is planning to retire in the coming months amid accusations from Republicans of partisanship and bias within the law enforcement agency.

The Washington Post reported Saturday that McCabe plans to step down in a few months, when he is fully eligible for pension benefits. That is expected to happen in early March.

McCabe has weathered GOP criticism of the FBI for over a year, with Republicans questioning the agency’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton‘s use of a private email server and, more recently, the probe into possible collusion between President Trump‘s campaign and Russia.

So Trump attacked him:

BUT something else is going on and it could be YUGE:

In private testimony before the House Intelligence Committee this week, McCabe told lawmakers that Comey informed him of conversations he had with President Donald Trump soon after they happened, according to three sources with knowledge of the matter.

The testimony suggests McCabe could corroborate Comey’s account, including Trump’s ask that Comey show him loyalty, which the President has strongly disputed. Comey previously testified that he briefed some of his senior colleagues at the FBI about this conversation with Trump.

Too many fireworks right before Christmas…
