Did Andrew McCabe Resign because of the Memo?

We aren’t being told officially what made Andrew McCabe resign from the FBI, but the timing is interesting.

What is in the memo that made FBI Director Christopher Wray demand that Andrew McCabe resign? Sara Carter went on Sean Hannity’s show and told him what she had been told. Hannity had some sources too. According to Hannity, Wray was “shocked to his core” by what he read in the FISA memo which Congress voted to release. The day after Wray read the memo, Andrew McCabe was asked to resign!

Zero Hedge posted a transcript excerpt under the headline, “FBI Director Wray “Shocked To His Core” By FISA Memo, McCabe ‘Removed’ Next Day, More Heads To Roll: Report.

Carter: What we know tonight is that FBI Director Christopher Wray went Sunday and reviewed the four-page FISA memo. The very next day, Andrew McCabe was asked to resign. Remember Sean, he was planning on resigning in March – that already came out in December. This time they asked him to go right away. You’re not coming into the office. I’ve heard reports he didn’t even come in for the morning meeting – that he didn’t show up.

Hannity: A source of mine told me tonight that when Wray read this, it shocked him to his core.

Sara Carter: Shocked him to his core, and not only that, the Inspector General’s report – I have been told tonight by a number of sources, there’s indicators right now that McCabe may have asked FBI agents to actually change their 302’s – those are their interviews with witnesses.
