Two House committees announced they were opening new investigations into the FBI’s handling of its probe into Clinton’s email server…

The Washington Post reported that McCabe was waiting to retire when he becomes fully eligible for pension benefits.

Trump took issue with this as well, tweeting minutes after his first tweet: “FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is racing the clock to retire with full benefits. 90 days to go?!!”

McCabe has faced an onslaught of criticism from Republicans for alleged bias in the FBI. In addition to revelations that two top FBI staffers exchanged pro-Clinton, anti-Trump text messages, McCabe remains under investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general for how he handled the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

That review was announced in May and stems from his wife Jill McCabe’s campaign for a Virginia state senate seat in 2015. Her campaign received donations from former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe’s super PAC, as well as the Democratic Party of Virginia…
