Democrats Try to Rescue Andrew McCabe

The deep state arranges federal job offers to rescue Andrew McCabe and his pension.

Naturally, anti-Trump forces are rallying to rescue Andrew McCabe. Up until now using federal resources to spy on, delegitimise, and attempt to oust Donald Trump have been entirely zero-risk activities. A few have lost their jobs, but the jobs weren’t permanant anyway. Firing the FBI Deputy Director so he lost his pension was the first time anyone has suffered a real penalty for their actions contriving to overturn a Presidential election.

So Democrats aren’t just trying to rescue Andrew McCabe. They want to make sure the rest of their taxfed army in the federal bureaucracy don’t get scared of suffering personal consequences.

The Huffington Post reports, “Democrats Flood Andrew McCabe With Federal Job Offers To Save His Pension.

Democrats in Congress may have found a way to save former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s government pension, despite Attorney General Jeff Sessions firing him two days before he could qualify for it.

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) on Saturday extended a federal job offer to McCabe, who has worked for the FBI for 21 years. Pocan wants McCabe to work with his office on election security.

Should McCabe accept the offer, Pocan said in a statement it would allow the former FBI official to reach the length of service he needs to retire and collect his pension, estimated at $60,000 a year.

The congressman claims Sessions’ ousting of McCabe proves that President Donald Trump and his administration are working to “discredit the FBI and undermine” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether Trump’s presidential campaign colluded with Russia.

“While Speaker Ryan and House Republicans have become complicit in the President’s destruction of our democracy, we must do all that we can to ensure that the investigation into Russia’s interference in our election is completed and that future elections are safeguarded from these kinds of attacks,” Pocan said.

Sessions ousted McCabe on Friday after the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility recommended he be fired for his alleged lack of candor during an internal review of how the FBI and Justice Department handled an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
