Elder Patriot – Dirty F.B.I. Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who oversaw the destruction of evidence to hide the depth of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, has been fired.
Calls for McCabe’s firing had been coming from Trump loyalists for some time but the final nail in McCabe’s coffin was the findings of Inspector General Michael Horowitz who came to the conclusion that McCabe’s violations were so egregious that criminal charges should follow.
The Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) – composed of fellow FBI agents – joined I.G. Horowitz in calling for McCabe’s ouster just hours before he was set to retire.
The OPR usually protects their own so this is a stunning development coming as McCabe was readying himself to start receiving his cushy pension.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the announcement only moments ago. His statement began:
“The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standands of honesty, integrity, and accountability. As the OPR proposal stated, “all FBI employees know that lacking candor under oath results in dismissal and that our integrity is our brand.
“Pursuant to Department Order 1202, and based on the report of the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, and the recommendation of the Department’s senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.”
As shocking as this development is, it will almost assuredly prove to be just the tip of the iceberg and is sending shockwaves through everyone associated with McCabe including the highest levels of the Obama administration.
