The President and Devin Nunes, along with other republicans on the Capitol Hill, like the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley also put in their suggestions that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was not proactive in their probes of the former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and her use of her private email servers.

Again, Andrew McCabe wasn't given any money, he wasn't on the Clinton investigation at the time, and there's no evidence Clinton even knew.

Strzok was removed the team of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the Russian Federation investigation, over the summer after the text messages surfaced.

In a tweet on Saturday, Trump blasted Comey for helping leak a memo to a reporter.

It is standard for FBI officials to leave the bureau for new opportunities upon becoming retirement-eligible, and it was widely expected that McCabe - independent of the criticism from Trump - would retire to give the new FBI director a chance to select his own No. 2.

A lawyer for Trump did not return a phone message seeking comment.

Trump said earlier this week that he's not considering firing Mueller. He also faulted Comey for comments made during that news conference, which Rosenstein said broke with Justice Department protocol by issuing "derogatory information" about someone who was investigated but never charged. Clinton believes that this went on to damage the final results of the elections effectively, and caused her the defeat.

"The Director laid out his version of the facts for the news media as if it were a closing argument, but without a trial", Rosenstein wrote. McAuliffe is a longtime supporter of Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

He returned to that theme days after Mueller revealed a plea deal with Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, by tweeting: "Many people in our Country are asking what the "Justice" Department is going to do about the fact that totally Crooked Hillary, AFTER receiving a subpoena from the United States Congress, deleted and "acid washed" 33,000 Emails?"

On Saturday, Trump swiped at multiple agency officials in a string of tweets, in which he suggested FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe may have been compromised by political donations and ripped former FBI Director James Comey as a leaker.

Schmitz says if FBI Deputy Director McCabe is found by the inspector general to have used "his official authority or influence for the goal of interfering with or affecting the result of an election", according to the Hatch Act, the FBI deputy director should be held accountable to the American people for his abuse of authority in violation of the Hatch Act. "It just happens to be accurate", Gowdy said.
