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. And A Justice Department spokeswoman would not say whether McCabe would be dismissed.

Trump has complained about the Democratic political affiliation of McCabe's wife, and criticized his oversight of FBI investigations into Hillary Clinton.
