FBI Deputy Director and deep state agent Andrew McCabe gets fired and loses his pension!
A deep state agent never needs to fear any repurcussions. The media portrays him as a hero of “the resistance” and his tax-fed retirement is iron clad.
Except now that has changed.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe a day before he could have retired and lived for free off taxpayers for the rest of his life.
So now, when the deep state acts like it’s fighting for it’s life, Donald Trump has confirmed that is the case. Drain the swamp!
The Washington Post reports, “FBI’s Andrew McCabe is fired a little more than 24 hours before he could retire.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire.
Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found “that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.”
He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.”
The move will likely cost McCabe a significant portion of his retirement benefits, though it is possible he could bring a legal challenge. McCabe has been fighting vigorously to keep his job, and on Thursday, he spent nearly four hours inside the Justice Department pleading his case.
Michael R. Bromwich, McCabe’s attorney, said in a lengthy statement responding to the allegations that he had “never before seen the type of rush to judgment — and rush to summary punishment — that we have witnessed in this case.” He cited in particular President Trump’s attacks on McCabe on Twitter and the White House press secretary’s comments about him on Thursday — which he said were “quite clearly designed to put inappropriate pressure on the Attorney General to act accordingly.”
“This intervention by the White House in the DOJ disciplinary process is unprecedented, deeply unfair, and dangerous,” Bromwich said.
