1. Trump targets FBI's Andrew McCabe in tweets

President Trump went after FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in a series of tweets Saturday and Sunday, accusing him of corruption in the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server. Trump accused McCabe of taking "$700,000 for wife's campaign by Clinton Puppets during [the emails] investigation." In subsequent tweets he referenced reports of McCabe's forthcoming retirement and quoted Fox News as saying McCabe promoted the Clinton campaign with his government email account. McCabe's wife, Dr. Jill McCabe, did receive $450,000 for a 2015 state campaign from a PAC run by Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D), who was co-chair of Bill Clinton's 1996 re-election campaign and chair of Hillary Clinton's run in 2008. However, Andrew McCabe did not have oversight of the Clinton emails investigation until after his wife lost.
