USA: Trump Fights Back, Fires Deputy FBI Director Two Days To Retirement

President Donald Trump has through the Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe late Friday, less than two days to his official retirement, ending the career of an official who had risen to serve as second-in-command at the bureau.
McCabe had more recently been regularly taunted by President Donald Trump and besieged by accusations that he had misled internal investigators at the Justice Department.
In a blistering statement Friday night, McCabe said his firing is part of a larger effort to discredit the FBI and the special counsel’s investigation.

You will recall that earlier in the week the House Intelligence Committee cleared President Trump of any collusion with Russia as regards meddling in the USA Elections.
