Jeff Sessions Fires Andrew McCabe

The long-rumored termination happened Friday night:

The Justice Department dealt a stunning blow to former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe on Friday night, firing him just days before he would have been eligible for a lifetime pension after determining that he lied to investigators reviewing the bureau’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s email server.
“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,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement.
“After an extensive and fair investigation and according to Department of Justice procedure, the Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) provided its report on allegations of misconduct by Andrew McCabe to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR),” Sessions said.


Fox News reporter Adam Housley reported on Twitter [Friday night] about the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, stating his sources were telling him that in the past few days McCabe threatened to “take people down with him” if he was fired. Housley also reported that the Inspector General-Office of Professional Responsibility report had uncovered “tons of stuff” on McCabe unrelated to the Trump investigation and that McCabe’s firing was a morale boost to FBI agents.

No doubt the liberal media will try to portray this as a political vendetta on the part of President Trump, but it appears McCabe was dishonest, and that the FBI had been corrupted during eight years of Eric Holder’s tenure as Attorney General. Clinton broke the law when she used a private email server to conduct official business while Secretary of State; she then obstructed justice by concealing facts from federal investigators. McCabe was apparently part of that cover-up.
