THE FBI AND DOJ ACTED PROPERLY AND ANDREW MCCABE DID NOT. HE DESERVED TO BE FIRED.
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions over the weekend. McCabe was let go a mere two days before he was eligible to retire with a full pension, which has many people crying bloody murder.
For his part, McCabe released a statement saying he believed this was done to undermine Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.
The problem with all of this is that believing McCabe’s firing was done to undermine Mueller requires belief in conspiratorial storyline that makes little sense.
According to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility, 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 and everybody peddling these ridiculous conspiracies trying to undermine the DOJ and FBI out of pure hatred for the president should be ashamed of themselves.
