Over the past week, there has been a Gofundme campaign to pay the legal expenses of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Nearly $500,000 has been raised for McCabe’s legal defense team and the only reaction I have is: Why?

Let’s start with the obvious: According to the FBI, McCabe absolutely deserved to be fired.

The FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility reported that McCabe allowed FBI agents to disclose sensitive information to the press. When questioned about this, McCabe lied through his teeth to Federal Investigators.

That is not just unethical, it is criminal. McCabe should be grateful if all that happens is he loses his pension.

The amazing thing here is that some people are trying to make McCabe into the victim.

The FBI determined McCabe acted improperly and recommended his firing. They are trying to root out corruption from their own ranks and good for them for doing so.

Jeff Sessions and the DOJ read the FBI’s findings and took swift action to remove somebody who clearly needed to be relieved of his duties, and good for them.

Yet somehow McCabe is a victim here?

As I mentioned earlier, the craziest part of all here is the insane conspiracies popping up to give credence to McCabe’s claim of being used to undermine Mueller.

The FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility recommended McCabe’s firing. So in order to believe McCabe, you would have to believe that the FBI and DOJ are conspiring to frame McCabe as way to discredit Mueller.

Not only is there zero evidence to suggest this is the case, but think about it for one second: Why would the FBI undermine its own credibility by making public that the agency’s head went against protocol unless the agency’s head……actually went against protocol? What exactly would be in it for the FBI to “frame” McCabe?

Unless you believe the FBI is all secretly in league with President Trump, who has consistently dumped on them and battled with?

In short, Andrew McCabe was a corrupt official who was removed from his post and is lucky to not be criminally indicted.

Believing otherwise means you think the President, the DOJ, and the FBI are all working together to harm McCabe, who does not actually have anything to do with Mueller.

Mueller’s investigation rolls on whether or not McCabe is running the FBI.
What this all really boils down to is a FBI higher-up who got caught with his hand in the cookie jar and is trying to blame whoever he can to avoid responsibility for his own actions.

And a group of people who hate the president so much that they will try making a martyr out of anybody, even a higher-up the FBI who acted improperly.

But no matter how you feel about the president, here is the truth:

The FBI Office of Professional Responsibility did its job.

Jeff Sessions did his job.

Andrew McCabe did not and was fired as a result.

Those are the facts, plan and simple.

Yell all you want about Russia, but it won’t change the basic fact that Andrew McCabe deserved to be fired and in all reality, deserved a lot worse than that.

He should be thankful he is not facing criminal charges.

Yet, despite all of this, people saw fit to donate to this man.

Ok, maybe you think McCabe got a raw deal. Maybe you think the conspiracies are true. Maybe you just want to find a way to metaphorically spit in the president’s eye.

Fine, good for you.

But here is something you should really consider: Andrew McCabe is a millionaire. He does not need your money.

There are vast numbers of poor and sick people throughout the world who need your help everyday. There are terrific charities who run exclusively on private donations to assist said people.

That you would give even a dime to a rich man who is doing just fine over a truly indigent person who could desperately use it says a lot about your character.

And not in a good way.
