Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, March 16, 2018

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe late Friday, less than two days shy of his retirement, ending the career of an official who had risen to serve as second-in-command at the bureau. McCabe had more recently been regularly taunted by President Donald Trump and besieged by accusations that he had misled internal investigators at the Justice Department. McCabe had been expected to retire this Sunday, on his 50th birthday, when he would have become eligible to receive early retirement benefits. But Friday's termination could place a portion of his anticipated pension, earned after more than two decades of service, in significant jeopardy.

Typical Trump. If McCabe was really guilty, why not fire him long ago? Noooo, Trump wanted to send a message to everyone: he is control of your life. DR Righties, before posting your usual crap, please recall Trump himself had interviewed McCabe for the Director's position, at which time McCabe was asked who he voted for in the 2016 election.

You knew McCabe was toast. The thirst for blood must be quenched.

What about the other Mac? I read a quote somewhere today -- Twitter, probably -- that Trump had to be talked out of firing McMaster right now. Aides were arguing to keep McMaster on for a while, maybe even promote him first, then push him to retire. That way they'd be able to tell future job applications there was at least one Trump appointee who didn't leave humiliated, their reputation in ruins.

I wouldn't hold my breath.

It's funny how some on the right will bitch and moan that "lefties" hate Trump.

Well, after reading this kind of stuff (along with 90% of the rest that's out there) how can you not?

What a reprehensible POS that would do something like this. Just another example of how hollow the rhetoric of Trump and his supporters is when they claim to support these folks...so long as they fulfill the theoretical version of them that is really only based on a generic version of LEO.

The only silver lining I can hope for is that Trump burning so many powerful people will lead to a really hard, long and vicious fall when a critical mass is reached. Jesus that will be the best mugshot I've ever seen.

Some people think that he was fired for no good reason, this is false. Here are the facts.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz (an Obama appointee) finished his investigation and recommended that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe be terminated. His case was reviewed by the OPR (staffed with career staffers) who agreed with the Inspector's assessment. The Inspector General concluded that he had "misled investigators about his role in directing other officials at the FBI to speak". In other words, McCabe had leaked (in an article from the Wall street journal that was damning to Hillary actually), and then lied multiple times about that to the Inspector General (during the investigation). He would have been fired in January, but he appealed to the AG. The AG office just put it on the deputy AG's desk yesterday, which is why it was not finished in normal business hours. Since Sessions was out of town yesterday, it had to be finished today, when the deputy could review the matter with the AG.

All of this is very unfortunate for a man who served 2 decades at the FBI, but it isn't like his due process was violated. In fact he was using that due process to try to run out the clock. His harsh treatment might be due, in part, to politics, but lying/misleading the Inspector general (on multiple occasions) and unauthorized disclosers are big no-nos that could have caused any rank and file member of the FBI to be terminated.

Our current status is preferred and supported by at least ~30% of the electorate and is met with indifference by a good percentage of the rest.

Trump (his legal team) knows that McAbe's testimony corroborates Comey's notes, reactioms and characterizations of the "loyalty meeting." The method and capriciousness of this firing, particularly manufacturing a financial impact will be used by Trump at trail to hopefully impeach Mcabe's testimony.

Trump knows he's going to be prosecuted. For obstruction at the least and who knows what else. This is pre trail gamesmanship, and not a bad move when you look at it as a guilty man setting the table to discredit the witnesses against him.

We've seen this tactic over and over again with Republicans. The Nunes memo was a recent (and egregious) example.

"Former FBI deputy Director Andrew McCabe wrote memos detailing his interactions with President Donald Trump, as well as on some interactions between the president and former FBI Director James Comey, a person with knowledge of the matter told HuffPost.

He has also turned hard copies of the memos over to special counsel Robert Mueller, the source said. The number of memos and their contents are not yet known.

In a lengthy statement, McCabe said he was fired because his memos could corroborate Comey's accounts of interactions with the president. Comey wrote similar memos documenting Trump's behavior before he was fired in May 2017."

1) McCabe lost a fraction of his pension. The bonus to his pension for serving in senior management. It was then penalty he paid for the rules that he broke.
2) The process worked as it was designed. Albeit the process was slow rolled to run out the clock. It is my understanding that the union board/HR/ whatever only delivered the dismissal packet on Friday. Up until that point Session, Trump nor anyone else in the administration had their hands on it.

The point is that McCabe may have been a loyal public servant for many years. Who knows? And for that he will keep his pension. He did however become hyper-partisan at some point while in senior leadership. So much so that he was breaking rules which were without a doubt grounds for dismissal. And for that he was fired and lost the additional portion of his pension associated with being a part of Senior Leadership at the FBI. The guy tried everything he could to affect a Presidential election. I think the guys legal troubles are just beginning.

To want someone locked up when they have not even been convicted of any crime is very anti-American.

This is a twofer from Trump. He simultaneously asked a Federal Court to take jurisdiction over from a California State Court. The firing has the effect of drowning out the Stormy story, which is now scheduled to broadcast March 26th on 60 minutes. The President's Lawyer filed the brief for "President Donald Trump aka David Dennison". They are already claiming $20 million in damages and more for the 60 Minutes Interview.

A very busy Friday, part of a long running series of Friday night massacres.

March 25th.
America will be watching, too.
Hilariously, Donald Trump's new lawyer, of Hulk Hogan fame, confirmed for everyone that David Dennison is Donald Trump.

1) McCabe lost a fraction of his pension. The bonus to his pension for serving in senior management. - #81 | Posted by bogey1355 at 2018-03-18 12:02 PM |

What I've read indicates that he can no longer file for early retirement at 50 and must wait until 57. That's a loss of 7 years of payments, or a little shy of $400k total.
