President Donald Trump on Sunday continued to hammer deputy director of the FBI Andrew McCabe, intensifying criticism of his alleged partisan bias in his role at the nation’s premier law enforcement agency.

The tweet — the second in as many days that target the embattled McCabe, who reportedly is planning to retire in March — apparently refers to a Fox News report about alleged use of his FBI email account to promote wife Jill’s state Senate race campaign in 2015 — railing, “You obviously cannot do this.”

He also redoubled his criticism of Jill McCabe’s acceptance of $700,000 in then-campaign donations from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe's political action committee — mocking the governor as a “puppet” of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton — and the Virginia Democratic Party.

The money was donated before McCabe was promoted to deputy director and assumed a supervisory role in the Clinton email investigation. McAuliffe is a longtime supporter of Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

McCabe became acting FBI director last May after Trump fired FBI Director Comey, who was overseeing the bureau's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump has long maintained there was no collusion between his campaign and the Russian government, and has summarily dismissed the investigation as a "witch hunt."

But the president’s unrelenting criticism of the FBI has reportedly complicated the job of his hand-picked successor to Comey to lead the bureau, Christopher Wray.
