In hind sight, it appears the only purpose for the decision by Trump to fire Andrew McCabe was in response to the belief that Hillary Clinton had somehow planted him inside the FBI.
Naturally, the move prompted outrage, including from within Congress. Congressman Eric Swalwell, who sits on one of the committees investigating the Trump-Russia scandal, unloaded on Trump for the move, and even went so far as to suggest Trump would be fired soon.
Rep. Eric Swalwell called the termination of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe a “petty act” and intended to “send a message to anyone that would cross the President”

In order to say such a thing, one would think Swalwell must be privy to far more evidence than is publicly known in regards to the Trump-Russia scandal. Considering his position, that very well may be the case.
