Andrew McCabe Was Fired!

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired, effective immediately, the DoJ said Friday night. The decision came after the Department of Justice Inspector General recommended the firing.

The report by the Department of Justice Inspector General, while not yet finished, found evidence that McCabe had questionable contact with a reporter and was not fully forthcoming when asked about it about an investigation concerning the Clinton Foundation.

There is probably a lot more than we even know. Government employees never get fired. This came 24 hours before he could collect his pension. It has been reported that he will still receive part of his pension. Since his 50th birthday is Sunday, he will have to wait several years to collect that.

The decision came after Associate Deputy Attorney General Scott Schools met with McCabe Thursday, a part of an effort to shift the McCabe decision to “career officials” within the DOJ, according to a source familiar with the process.

The DOJ released a short statement.

In a statement, the Department of Justice said, “the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor – including under oath – on multiple occasions.”

Supporters say McCabe was authorized to talk to reporters.

Was he also authorized to lie several times under oath?

McCabe released a statement.

“The investigation by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) has to be understood in the context of the attacks on my credibility,” McCabe wrote.

He continued:

“The investigation flows from my attempt to explain the FBI’s involvement and my supervision of investigations involving Hillary Clinton. I was being portrayed in the media over and over as a political partisan, accused of closing down investigations under political pressure. The FBI was portrayed as caving under that pressure and making decisions for political rather than law enforcement purposes. Nothing was further from the truth. In fact, this entire investigation stems from my efforts, fully authorized under FBI rules, to set the record straight on behalf of the Bureau, and to make clear that we were continuing an investigation that people in DOJ opposed.”

  1. This guy must be headed for big time trouble. It’s affirming that, FINALLY, a lawbreaking, DC bureaucrat has to pay the piper.
    Here’s hoping McCabe gets plenty of company soon.

  2. Finally. Accountability in government. All the other crooks and incompetents retire with full pensions. Maybe this will be the first in a new enforcement of performance and integrity. That Sheriff in Florida would be a good second.

  3. I am shocked that it actually happened. When will the prosecution begin? Will he sue in a “friendly” court?
    These people are protected within their secret organizations and only the lowest levels will take any heat. This is organized crime.

  4. Ought to lose most of his stuff when let go for cause. Nothing else will happen. It’s the nature of the beast in D. C..

  5. McCabe is also complicit in the rampant coverup of Sexual Harassment at the Head Office, which interestingly included Michael Flynn. Flynn stood by one woman against the FBI and one has to wonder whether this was part of the reason they went after him.

  6. I guess McCabe went crying to CBS rejecting the findings of the IG calling it “misleading and unfair”. Is he complaining about “FBI tactics” in his statement in the aftermath. He states: “to have my career end in this way, and to be accused of lacking candor when at worst I was distracted in the midst of chaotic events”.

    He was “distracted”, Really?? How many others have suffered at the hands of the FBI and complained, or rather didn’t complain but had to suffer without recourse. Maybe this is just cause for the case of Robyn Gritz and how she was dealt with, and all the cases where people were left bankrupt in the wake. The FBI has been using psychological warfare in their process and should be exposed for it. It also allows Law Offices to collect high priced fees in the process in Thousands plus an hour.

    Considering the furor over Russia and how its described it appears the FBI is projecting onto Russia for what they themselves are guilty of. If they have their eyes set upon you and “want to get you” there is no chance of avoiding their consequences. A Robyn Gritz interview from December gives some perspective.
