Former FBI Director James Comey praised Andrew McCabe on Monday and criticized the "small people" who were trying to "tear down an institution we all depend on," a tweet likely referring to President Donald Trump's administration.

McCabe, who played a central role in the Clinton email probe and the ongoing investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, stepped down as FBI deputy director earlier in the day.

Comey was fired in May by Trump for not being able to "effectively lead the Bureau."

McCabe has received blistering criticism from Trump, but White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president had no part in McCabe's abrupt departure. Sanders said the president, though, stands by his criticism of McCabe, whose wife received campaign donations from then-Gov. Terry McAuliffe, D-Va., during her 2015 run for a state Senate seat.
