The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s deputy director, whom US President Donald Trump repeatedly accused of political bias, has resigned.

Andrew McCabe was forced to step down ahead of his official retirement date on 18 March, reports CBS News.

Mr McCabe’s exit from the top law enforcement agency comes a week after a report that Mr Trump wanted him out.

He was also reportedly pressured to quit by FBI Director Christopher Wray ahead of an internal agency report.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Monday’s daily press briefing: “This decision was not made by the White House.”

“The president wasn’t part of this decision making process,” she added.
