FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, a frequent target of public attacks from President Donald Trump, is stepping down effective Monday, NBC News reported. McCabe, who served a brief stint as acting director of the bureau after Trump fired ex-FBI chief James Comey, was already expected to leave. He will stay on leave and the FBI payroll until he is eligible to retire with full benefits in March, according to NBC. Trump did not answer when asked by reporters Monday afternoon if he knew about McCabe's move. In December, Trump tweeted that McCabe was 'racing the clock to retire with full benefits.'
