FBI’s McCabe Says His Firing Friday Was Designed to Undermine Special Counsel Probe of Trump

Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Friday night, a little more than 24 hours before he was set to retire with full benefits.

McCabe, who spent more than 20 years with the bureau, quickly responded, saying he “was singled out” because he’s a key witness in the obstruction of justice case centered around President Trump’s termination of then-FBI Director James Comey in May 2017.

“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,” McCabe said in a statement.

McCabe is among three FBI officials who have corroborated Comey’s claim that the president demanded his loyalty and pressured him to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. 

All three have since been forced out or reassigned.

In a statement Friday night, Sessions defended McCabe’s termination, saying it was based on findings by both the Justice Department’s internal watchdog and the FBI office that handles disciplines. According to their yet-to-be-released reports, “Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.”

McCabe, whose pension is in jeopardy, denied misleading investigators and said in a statement that the accusations are “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.”

Im pretty sure he was fired for lack of candor. To say otherwise by McCabe tells me that he is still lying. He should have been fired a long time ago!
