Watch the White House Press Briefing with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders above.

The briefing will likely focus on the ‘removal’ of Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe following months of scandals and controversies surrounding his role in the Trump-Russia investigation as well as his longtime connections to the Democratic party.

Inside sources confirmed McCabe’s plans to take “terminal leave” -the act of taking paid vacation until he plans to retire in just a few weeks- on Monday afternoon; raising the stakes in an already tense relationship between the White House and the nation’s premier law enforcement agency.

The Deputy Director has been a lightning-rod for Republicans since his appointment to the bureau.

McCabe’s wife has long-standing ties to the Democratic party; running as a Democrat for a Virginia Senate seat in 2015 and receiving funds and support from senior Clinton insiders -including Governor Terry McAuliffe.
