Former FBI Director Andrew McCabe is suing the FBI and DOJ over his pension. McCabe claims he was wrongfully terminated and feels that he was only fired because he was not loyal to Trump. I guess he forgets why he was fired…
“It was Trump’s unconstitutional plan and scheme to discredit and remove DOJ and FBI employees who were deemed to be his partisan opponents because they were not politically loyal to him,” according to McCabe’s lawsuit. “Plaintiff’s termination was a critical element of Trump’s plan and scheme.”
The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington, comes just two days after former FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok filed a similar lawsuit, alleging that Trump’s vendetta against him led to his unceremonious firing, despite a formal disciplinary process that recommended a less severe punishment. Strzok is seeking his old job back or compensation for his lost pay and benefits, while McCabe is seeking the reinstatement of his full retirement benefits.”
A.G. Session, however, explained his firing was his own fault.
“The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability. As the OPR proposal stated, all FBI employees know that lacking candor under oath results in dismissal and that our integrity is our brand.
Pursuant to Department Order 1202 and based on the report of the inspector general, the findings of the FBI, Office and Professional Responsibility and the recommendation the department’s senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.”
He goes on to say, “The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability.” And then he went on to say both the Office of the Inspector General and the OPR reports concluded that McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor under oath on multiple occasions.”
So, this seems, in the way it’s worded, this seems like an open and shut case. You cannot make exceptions even for someone with a very distinguished career as a civil servant, as a career professional.”
It looks like McCabe doesn’t remember why he was fired. As it looks like it has more to do with mishandling of information and lying under oath…
