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. The McCabe-linked source shot down an allegation that McCabe tried to stymie an investigation into the Clinton family charity. The FBI isn't supposed to disclose information about ongoing criminal investigations, but the October 30, 2016, story went into an extraordinary level of detail about turf wars between the FBI and the Justice Department over the handling of the Clinton Foundation probe. Horowitz's report has not yet been released.
Republicans, including Trump campaign surrogates, have suggested that Ms Clinton traded donations to the Clinton Foundation for influence.
Trump has pressured Attorney General Jeff Sessions ― another frequent target of Trump's wrath ― to get rid of McCabe. Strzok was removed from the Mueller team in July, though the reason for his ouster was not reported until December. Trump has complained about the Democratic political affiliation of McCabe's wife, and criticized his oversight of FBI investigations into Hillary Clinton.
McCabe was caught up in an internal review, including an examination of his 2016 decision to allow Federal Bureau of Investigation officials to talk with reporters about a probe into the Clinton Foundation.
Mr. McCabe's retirement will take effect Sunday, but he stepped down in January almost two months before his scheduled departure. If the Justice Department does not move on the recommendation, conservatives might view officials there as unfairly protecting McCabe.
A spokeswoman for the Justice Department told the Times that the department "follows a prescribed process by which an employee may be terminated".
