McCabe, who was at the FBI during the beginnings of the Russia investigation that was later taken over by special counsel Robert Mueller, has been a target of obsession for the president for years.

“To those who know Trump, the fixation on McCabe comes as absolutely no surprise. The former acting FBI director, who is currently on an anti-Trump media blitz, has long been a subject of particular, blood-boiling ire for the 45th President of the United States,” wrote Asawin Suebsaeng for The Daily Beast in February. “He is a longtime, career law-enforcement official, a creature of government and public service who represents the very elements of Washington D.C. and so-called “Deep State” that the president rails against.”
