His plan may be disrupted, however, by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who is reportedly considering firing him. The watchdog has been conducting an investigation of the bureau's handling of the Clinton email investigation.

Mr. McCabe is ensnared in an internal review that includes an examination of his decision in 2016 to allow F.B.I. officials to speak with reporters about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

A McCabe associate spoke to the Wall Street Journal in October 2016 for an article about a bureaucratic standoff between the FBI and Justice Department over its various investigations into Clinton.

TA source told AP that McCabe is suspected of misleading internal investigators about a media leak, an allegation he denies.

Along with Iva Majoli, at 16 years and 199 days, Anisimova is the youngest player to reach the R16 at Indian Wells. I think this will change a little bit in the future, but for sure the game is good and not really any weakness.

The inspector general was interested in McCabe's role in authorizing officials to talk about the matter, people familiar with the case said, because the story detailed ongoing criminal investigative work, which law enforcement officials are not normally allowed to discuss. But the draft report takes particular issue with how forthcoming McCabe was when Justice Department officials asked him questions about his actions, according to the source. His investigation has already led to the demotion of Peter Strzok, a former FBI counterintelligence official who worked on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Trump - who already has a strained relationship with Justice Department leaders - might be particularly displeased. Strzok was removed from the Mueller team in July, though the reason for his ouster was not reported until December.

The President has assailed donations to Mr McCabe's wife, a Democrat running for a spot in Virginia's state legislature, from a political group overseen by former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton ally. Trump tweeted. Federal law states that government employees can lose their pension and benefits if convicted of a federal crime - there is no indication McCabe could face any charges for his actions.

The report recommended that McCabe be terminated, leaving Sessions in charge of his fate.
