He was supposed to shuffle off sometime in early May, but that’s changed:
NBC News: Multiple U.S. officials say that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is stepping down from his post today and taking "terminal leave" meaning that he will stay on until his retirement in March (that was always his plan) so he can receive full retirement benefits.

As this comes from NBC it is a little f***ed up. McCabe can’t retire with full benefits until May (this information is available to anyone with access to the internet). He’d originally elected to take terminal leave, about 60-days worth, beginning in March. What he’s done is move that date back a little more than a month.
I wonder what has happened since he made his initial decision to change his mind? It certainly couldn’t have anything to do with the House Intelligence Committee.
