FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, a frequent target of public attacks from President Donald Trump, is stepping down immediately, NBC News reported.

McCabe, who served a brief stint as acting director of the bureau after Trump fired ex-FBI chief James Comey, will remain on the payroll until March, when he is eligible to retire with full benefits, NBC said. He had been expected to leave.

Trump and some Republicans in Congress have accused McCabe of political bias, citing his role at the FBI during investigations related to Hillary Clinton and Trump. They question his role in the Clinton email probe and the investigation into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin.

Trump did not answer when asked by reporters Monday afternoon if he knew about McCabe's move.

The president had thrown jabs at McCabe in a manner unusual for a president and a top FBI official. Trump repeatedly accused McCabe of improper ties to Clinton because former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe ? a Clinton ally ? backed McCabe's wife's run for a state office in 2015. The Wall Street Journal reported in October 2016 that McAuliffe gave nearly $500,000 to Jill McCabe's campaign for state Senate.

    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?

The FBI says McCabe followed the proper steps to avoid conflicts of interest. His wife's run for office also started months before he had any role in the Clinton probe.

More details about Trump's relationship with McCabe surfaced last week, when The Washington Post reported that the president asked him in May who he supported in the presidential election.

In December, the president also tweeted that McCabe was "racing the clock to retire with full benefits."

The White House declined to comment to CNBC.

Well, this is good news.  Chairman Devin Nunes, and House Speaker Paul Ryan have had ample time to discuss the larger ramifications to ?The Big Ugly?.

Late last week Ryan and Nunes traveled together to Saudi Arabia to review the new Saudi Counter-Extremism Intelligence Center *cough* that President Trump, Saudi King Salman, MBS and Egyptian President Fattah al-Sisi *cough* opened last year.   Obviously Devin Nunes, Paul Ryan and their collective senior staffs would have a lot of time during travel to discuss the intelligence committee memo release.

Leutnant Erwin Rommel leads an attack on four French blockhouses in the Argonne, France, by crawling through barbed wire entanglements first [to recon and clear the way], and then leading his company into the attack.

Rommel, who already holds the Iron Class, Second Class, is awarded the Iron Cross, First Class for his actions. He is also transferred to the Wurttenburg Mountain Battalion and out of France. Rommel will go on to participate in Falkenhayn's invasion of Romania [which will knock that country out of the war], and to join the German and Austrian troops in northeast Italy, where, at the battle of Caporetto, Rommel will distinguish himself, capturing the key defensive position of Mount Matajur, and some 9,000 prisoners [including some 90 generals].Rommel will be awarded the "Pour Le Merite", the 'Blue Max' for that battle.

Rommel will survive the personnel cuts imposed on the German Army by the Treaty of Versailles. He will command a company and a ski battalion. He will also become a noted instructor at various war academies, and will write a classic book on infantry tactics, based on his First World War experiences, "Infanterie Greift An!" ['On Infantry Attacks!']. The book brings him to Hitler's attention, and he will command the Army's "Fuehrerbegleitbatallion" in both Czechoslovakia and Poland.

Rommel will then go on to command the 7th Panzer Division in the French campaign of 1940, the Deutsches Afrika Korps, and "Panzerarmee Afrika" in North Africa [1941-1943], and Armee Group 'B' in Northern Italy and France [1943-1944]. Severely wounded in France during a strafing attack, Rommel was implicated in the attempt on Hitler's life and forced to commit suicide [to protect his family].

At the time of his death, Erwin Rommel held the rank of Generalfeldmarschall. His decorations included the Iron Cross, first and Second Class, the Pour Le Merite, the Knights Cross with Swords and Oakleaves, the Tank Fighting Badge, the Wounds Badge in black [five or less wounds]. It was a long road he traversed, from that day in the Argonne long ago.

The Baseball Writers vote in the first 'class' of Baseball Hall of Famers. The class of five includes George Herman "Babe" Ruth, Ty Cobb, Christy Mathewson, Walter Johnson and Honus Wagner. Of the five, three, if you count Ruth's stellar pitching career with the Red Sox are pitchers [although pitching is NOT why Ruth goes into the Hall]. Wagner goes in as a great all around fielder, Cobb for his hitting [9 consecutive batting titles], Ruth for his slugging and hitting, Mathewson for his wins, and Johnson for his power pitching.

In the voting, Cobb finished first, Ruth and Wagner tied for second, and Mathewson and Johnson brought up the rear. Many others have followed them into the Hall, but they were the first to enter Cooperstown's Hallowed Hall.

In Case You Missed It Dept.:
House and Senate Democrats threatened to shut down the U.S. government Thursday over the issue of protecting illegal immigrant young people they call Dreamers. No one knew what might happen. The longest U.S. government shutdown lasted four years, when Jimmy Carter was president.
The Los Angeles Times ran an article last week questioning why President Trump was the first president in decades never to visit California once during his first year in office. It's not exactly his tribe out here. The Starbucks in Hollywood is located at the corner of I'm Offended and That's Racist.
President Trump was called a racist by Hollywood stars for referring to Third World countries as S-hole nations. In 2016 the same stars threatened that if Trump won they'd move to Australia, New Zealand or Canada. Leave it to Hollywood to protest racism by moving to the White Dominions.
House and Senate Democrats packed the galleries with Dreamers Thursday during the debate over their fate. The logic was tricky. The left says America is racist, unfair country that exploits its poor and jails its minorities, and that it's wrong to stop people from coming here to enjoy its blessings.
The U.S. government shut down Friday when Congress couldn't agree on a budget bill. Allies reacted swiftly. President Trump just got an emergency call from India's prime minister who suggested that Trump try turning the United States off, then turning it back on, and see if that helps.
Senator Elizabeth Warren faced calls by Native American tribes to apologize for claiming she was Cherokee back when she applied for an Ivy League professorship. They don't like when a white pretends to be red to get a job at Brown. Next thing you know a black will marry into the Royal family.
The Pentagon vowed Friday to establish direct communications with state emergency warning systems to try prevent mistaken missile alerts and the resulting chaos. It's epidemic. On Monday, Hawaii sent out a global text warning that the extended U.S. government shutdown was a false alarm.
Mitch McConnell arranged for chain migration, the immigration lottery and the border wall to be part of a proposed DACA deal. It's tense. If this generation were faced with a Zombie Apocalypse, they would have Zombie Rights activists dedicated to prevent them from being deported.
Disney, Verizon and JP Morgan Chase gave out millions in employee bonuses Tuesday and credited Trump's tax cuts, and WalMart added extended maternity and family leave and scholarships. It's forced Democrats to up their game. Now they claim Trump colluded with the Devil to win the election.
GOP Senator Ron Johnson called for a special counsel probe of the FBI after he was tipped off about the existence of a secret society of government officials and agents determined to take down Trump. No one knows who they are. They meet every day on CNN where nobody will find them.

I read that John Kerry is considering running for president in 2020. Kerry has a great campaign slogan. "John Kerry: Sorry I'm Not Oprah."
-- Jimmy Fallon
It's come out that Bernie Sanders met with staffers to discuss a presidential run in 2020. Apparently, Bernie's first question will be, "Will I still be alive?"

You are right, a lot going on.  And the more I hear, the more disheartened I am.  There are quite a few folks in the FBI that deserve to be indicted.  The love birds should have been terminated and indicted by now.  And I do not like the FBI conducting the investigation. 

And until HR Clinton and Bill Clinton are indicted for their high crimes, there is no justice in America.
