REPORT: Andrew McCabe Fired From FBI By Jeff Sessions Days Before Retirement

An investigation by the US Department Of Justice Office of the Inspector General found that McCabe “lacked candor – including under oath – on multiple occasions.”

Jeff Sessions has fired Andrew McCabe.

McCabe was the former deputy director of the FBI, and had long faced serious questions after it was revealed that his wife Jill (who ran for office as a democrat) received a large donation from a group closely tied to Hillary Clinton at the same time he was involved in the investigation into Hillary Clinton.

In a statement, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said “After an extensive and fair investigation and according to Department of Justice procedure, the Department’s Office of the Inspector General provided its report on allegations of misconduct by Andrew McCabe to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility. The FBI’s OPR then reviewed the report and underlying documents and issued a disciplinary proposal recommending the dismissal of Mr. McCabe. Both the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.”

McCabe would have turned 50 on Sunday, making him eligible for over $1 million in retirement benefits.

He fired back in a statement, saying “This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally. It is part of this Administration’s ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the Special Counsel investigation, which continue to this day. Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the Special Counsel’s work.”

The move has already sparked a divided reaction, with many Republicans praising the firing of McCabe for bringing accountability, while Democrats see it as an attack on the FBI.

It should be noted that the recommendation to fire McCabe came from a non-partisan institution.

Watching this American debacle, it leaves you wondering who is going to be able to clean up the corruption in our own government. Mr. Trump has had to change his supreme court justices, and so many democrats silently working against him, like in Canada the media is not grounded but slanted. What is true or untrue, who knows, but if like what Mr. Harper went through here, if you pay close attention, the Liberal/NDP party socialists still lie and blame him for their destructive agenda, when caught lying. I would like to bet though that we do not have laws… Read more »

He’s one of many who will be brought down and for good reason. This man is corrupt to the bone. The webs of deceit this one man wove were extensive. Everything he’s been accused of doing was to bolster Hillary Clinton, keep her place during the 2016 election campaign instead of locking her up for obstruction of justice regarding her email scandal. Many more will be prosecuted because of their willingness to lie for her. The biggest fall from grace, hopefully, will be the Crooked Teflon Queen herself, CLINTON, “lock her up.”

Just finished viewing a BBC documentary on J.Edgar Hoover,the founder of the FBI,(though the Bureau of Investigation was founded in 1909). FDR gave Hoover special authority in 1934,which led to his vast investigation abilities and power. The organization was founded by a thoroughly corrupt man and has continued in it’s corrupt ways ever since Hoover died in 1972,after running the organization for 48 years. When the culture of corruption is firmly set in any organization,it would take Christ Himself to turn it in another direction. But in government agencies, there are no saints, just civil servants who want to get… Read more »
