Scandal-plagued FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe resigned suddenly on Monday - a day after FBI Director Christopher Wray read an allegedly incriminating, classified FBI memo Republicans have been seeking to release to the American public.

Fox News reports that McCabe has been "removed" from his position:

"Top FBI official Andrew McCabe has been "removed" from his post as deputy director, Fox News is told, leaving the bureau after months of conflict-of-interest complaints from Republicans including President Trump.

"A source confirmed to Fox News that McCabe is taking “terminal leave” – effectively taking vacation until he reaches his planned retirement in a matter of weeks. As such, he will not be reporting to work at the FBI anymore."

On Sunday, McCabe reportedly reviewed a memo allegedly proving that the Obama Department of Justice abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in order to spy on Trump campaign associates. The House is, reportedly, planning to vote Monday to declassify the memo.

At her Monday media briefing, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that the White House did not play a part in McCabe's resignation, that she would not characterize the president's reaction to the news, and that the FBI will provide a statement regarding McCabe's resignation.
