The FBI had a rough Tuesday after President Trump took to Twitter in the morning to blast the agency over a “Fox and Friends,” report suggesting the bureau used the unverified Fusion GPS dossier to spy on transition officials.
“WOW, @foxandfrlends “Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.” And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!”, tweeted President Trump Tuesday.
The tweet further underlines his deep dissatisfaction with corruption at the FBI. Then on Saturday, Trump also went scorched earth on McCabe for his corruption and obvious conflicts of interest during the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Trump’s tweet read:
How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin’ James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife’s campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?

McCabe was also blasted for racing the clock to retire with full benefits. FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is racing the clock to retire with full benefits. 90 days to go?!!! According to WaPo: McCabe is retiring in just the right time to collect his pension:
The FBI’s deputy director who has been the target of Republican critics for more than a year plans to retire in a few months when he becomes fully eligible for pension benefits, according to people familiar with the matter.
It turns out that he won’t become eligible for his full pension until early March. People close to him say he plans to retire as soon as he hits that mark. “He’s got about 90 days, and some of that will be holiday time. He can make it,’’ said one.
McCabe treated Hillary’s criminal email investigation with kid gloves. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) revealed on Fox News Friday that email evidence from FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe indicates the Hillary Clinton email probe was coded “HQ Special.” The term suggests the probe did not follow standard investigative procedures, likely ‘softening,’ the bureau’s findings.
