  2. From McCabe’s statement in response to his firing;

    “Here is the reality: I am being singled out and treated this way because of the role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath of the firing of James Comey. The release of this report was accelerated only after my testimony to the House Intelligence Committee revealed that I would corroborate former Director Comey’s accounts of his discussions with the President. The OIG’s focus on me and this report became a part of an unprecedented effort by the Administration, driven by the President himself, to remove me from my position, destroy my reputation, and possibly strip me of a pension that I worked 21 years to earn. The accelerated release of the report, and the punitive actions taken in response, make sense only when viewed through this lens. Thursday’s comments from the White House are just the latest example of this. “

  3. Shady business at it’s best, so much dirty unhanded work at the biggest Daycare in America…The White House.

  4. 2 days before he was eligible for full retirement. Trump is just a very mean little man.

    My prediction is that McCabe, within one or two years, will have his full pension by some future court ruling.

    • I think McCabe would first have to appeal his termination to the Inspector General for the DOJ. I truly do hope that he receives his pension.

  6. Dear Xena,

    Two things can be true at the same time.It is possible that Mr. McCabe did do something wrong but that this was also a politically motivated firing which was pushed by the US president, to where the process by which Mr. McCabe could seek redress was rushed through at warped speed.

    President Trump’s response by tweet on the 17th of March to the news of Mr. McCabe being fired tells us all we need to know, “Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI — A great day for Democracy.”

    Hugs, Gronda

      Indeed, Trump’s response conveys that he was happy to hurt McCabe. There’s an earlier tweet where Trump mocked McCabe’s announcement of resigning and retirement. It conveys that he had no intent in allowing McCabe to stay in his position until retirement.

  7. chump made Sessions fire McCabe. Sessions lied under oath during his confirmation hearings. Thank Gawd for the 3 branches of government. I’m looking forward to seeing how all of this ends. And the sooner the better!

      The sooner the better is right! This country has been under stress from the day Trump took office. It’s always something, and his tweets produce nothing good.
