Following the news that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will be retiring within the next few months, it quickly sparked conspiracy rumors on the political right. As expected, Donald Trump wasted no time firing back.

Trump on FBI

Donald Trump's feud with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has been well-documented dating back to the 2016 presidential election. After the FBI cleared Hillary Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing over her use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State, the former host of "The Apprentice" has questioned the FBI's ability to do its job.

Following his election win last year, Trump and much of the conservative media have waged a war of wars against the FBI, leading to the dismissal of then director James Comey by the president last May.

Since then, the Russian investigation, led by former FBI director Robert Mueller, has put even more pressure on the White House as the world waits to see if there was any proven collusion between Trump and the Kremlin.

According to The Hill on December 23, Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe has decide to resign just one day the FBI's General Counsel James Baker stepped down after being resigned. In response, Donald Trump had a few words to say on Twitter.

Taking to Twitter on December 23, Donald Trump decided to go on the attack against the FBI.

"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?" Trump tweeted out, in reference to a controversial report that McCabe's wife was allegedly given close to $700,000 by the Clintons.

Double down

In a follow-up tweet, Donald Trump continued his attack on Andrew McCabe. "FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is racing the clock to retire with full benefits," he wrote, before adding, "90 days to go?!!!" In his third and final tweet on the matter, the commander in chief cited Fox News in a post about the reassignment of FBI General Counsel James Baker, posting, "Wow, 'FBI lawyer James Baker reassigned,' according to @FoxNews."

Moving forward

As the FBI continues to reshuffle, Donald Trump and the right-wing media are expected to pile on in an attempt to deflect from the current controversy and scandal that has marred the first year of the current administration. With the Russian investigation heating up in Washington, only time will tell how it all plays out.
