FBI Director Christopher Wray was preparing to resign after he said he came under relentless pressure from the Trump administration to fire his deputy director, who triggered the special counsel investigation into alleged collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

Wray, who took the helm at the FBI after the Senate confirmed him in August, responded that he would resign if his deputy, Andrew McCabe, was forced out, according three sources with direct knowledge of the situation, Axios reported

Attorney General Jeff Sessions was leading the charge to fire McCabe, urging Wray to make a “fresh start” and fire his deputy, who had come under repeated attacks by Trump.

McCabe recently announced he plans to retire by March.

Wray was appointed by Trump after the president fired then-FBI Director James Comey, allegedly for refusing to stop investigating Michael Flynn, the former Trump national security advisor who pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents in December 2016.

Some legal experts have said Trump committed obstruction of justice when he fired Comey.

A suburban Detroit man was arrested on felony charges after police say he threatened to carry out a mass shooting at CNN headquarters over what he considered fake news, echoing President Trump’s relentless attacks on the network and other media outlets. 

Brandon Griesemer, of Novi, was arrested last week after federal authorities said he made 22 calls to the news network, including one in which he complained about “fake news” and pledged, “Fake news. I’m coming to gun you all down.”

He reportedly added, “I’m smarter than you, More powerful than you. I have more guns than you. More manpower. Your cast is about to get gunned down in a matter of hours.”

During some of the calls, Griesemer made disparaging comments about African American and the network.

Griesemer was charged Friday in U.S. District Court with a felony county of transmitting interstate communications with the intent to extort and threat to injure. Griesemer is free from jail after posting a $10,000 bond. 

“We take any threats to CNN employees or workplaces, around the world, extremely seriously. This one is no exception. We have been in touch with local and federal law enforcement throughout, and have taken all necessary measures to ensure the safety of our people,” CNN said Monday in a statement
