WASHINGTON ― Andrew McCabe, who took over as acting head of the FBI after President Donald Trump fired former Director James Comey past year, may soon be fired by the Trump administration just ahead of his formal retirement date on Sunday, putting his pension in peril after more than two decades at the bureau.
McCabe, a frequent target of President Donald Trump's criticism even before the election, has been on leave from the Federal Bureau of Investigation since stepping down in January from his deputy director position.
Mr. McCabe's retirement will take effect Sunday, but he stepped down in January almost two months before his scheduled departure.

Amazon also has spent over a decade trying to build up its AmazonFresh grocery delivery service, but so far seen limited success. The service, available today in six markets, will grow to serve more than 100 metro areas across the country, the company said .
The story for which McCabe authorized FBI officials to discuss came just as the bureau announced it was resuming its look at Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, though it focused more on a different case involving her family's foundation.
Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said there "are no personnel announcements at this time". "That yet-to-be-released report triggered an F.B.I. disciplinary process that recommended his termination - leaving Mr. Sessions to either accept or reverse that decision".
But their decision to issue a separate report focusing exclusively on McCabe is somewhat unusual, and has enabled Sessions to take disciplinary action before McCabe's retirement date, if he chooses.

Sherrod Brown (D.) said he doesn't "really care" about Clinton saying things unhelpful to the party. The campaign of US president Donald Trump , on the other hand, was "looking backwards".
McCabe did not return an Associated Press reporter's call seeking comment.
"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 situation now seems fraught for all involved", the Post reported. A representative of the inspector general's office declined to comment when reached by HuffPost this week, and the office has generally been tight-lipped about the forthcoming reports.

The studio released a short video yesterday announcing that the first teaser trailer for the film was coming sometime today. It has nearly been seven years since we saw the school, as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 released in 2011.
The inspector general has since last January been investigating the FBI and Justice Department's handling of the politically charged probe into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, which is separate from the foundation probe. "If the Justice Department does not move on the recommendation, conservatives might view officials there as unfairly protecting McCabe".
