In late August, CNN hired the disgraced, former FBI deputy director, Andrew McCabe, as a contributor for their anti-Trump network. McCabe has become a hero to the left, as he’s currently scheduled to headline a Democrat fundraiser in Lancaster, PA.
McCabe was fired by Sessions on March 16, 2018. Since he was fired a day before he could have retired, he will have to wait until he is 57 instead of 50 in order to collect his retirement benefits.
Before his firing, McCabe had been a frequent target of Trump’s criticism. Trump celebrated the firing in a tweet, calling it a “great day for Democracy.”
In December 2017, President Trump tweeted about his frustration with McCabe’s obvious allegiance to Hillary Clinton: How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin’ James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife’s campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?

He also tweeted about how Comey, McCabe, and Strzok have tarnished the reputation of the “once stellar” FBI, as he asked if they’ll ever be able to recover?
…..Will the FBI ever recover it’s once stellar reputation, so badly damaged by Comey, McCabe, Peter S and his lover, the lovely Lisa Page, and other top officials now dismissed or fired? So many of the great men and women of the FBI have been hurt by these clowns and losers!

Finally, after several years, Andrew McCabe may be getting what he deserves.
Fox News is reporting that U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against Andrew McCabe, as the Justice Department rejects a last-ditch appeal from the former top FBI official.
McCabe appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to the deputy attorney general, but the department rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.
Human Events publisher Will Chamberlain asked if CNN will fire McCabe, “given that he is about to be indicted for making false statements under oath?”

Fox News’ Joe Digenova gave a blistering review of the crooked former acting FBI deputy director, Andrew McCabe for being a Democrat shill, on the Laura Ingraham show last night, calling McCabe a “pajama boy.” Former US Rep Jason Chavez piled on, by reminding everyone, “He’s on the receiving end of one of the most scathing IG reports there’s ever been.” Chavez also reminded everyone that McCabe was fired for lying when being interviewed by federal investigators.
The potential charges relate to DOJ inspector general findings against him regarding misleading statements during the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
