Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe has been fired by Jeff Sessions. The left is going to go insane over this news, but McCabe’s firing was well deserved. He leaked information to the press and lied about it. Mike Flynn had his life ruined for less.
Sessions fires former FBI deputy director McCabe
Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Friday, dismissing the longtime bureau veteran who became a frequent target of criticism from President Donald Trump just days before he was set to retire Sunday.
In a statement, Sessions said that the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility reviewed an inspector general’s report about McCabe “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. The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability.”
The embattled FBI deputy, who was due to officially retire on Sunday, had stepped down in January after facing repeated public and private rebukes from the president.
It’s good to see people in government held accountable. Who’s next?
