Not a good St. Paddy's day for one Irishman

I love it. One of my lesser dreams comes true. Andy McCabe gets fired by DOJ two days he qualified for a life long retirement, medical care for himself and family, and of course public shaming.

McCabe fired "lack of candor"

WASHINGTON — Andrew G. McCabe, the former F.B.I. deputy director and a frequent target of President Trump’s scorn, was fired Friday after Attorney General Jeff Sessions rejected an appeal that would have let him retire this weekend.

Mr. McCabe promptly declared that his firing, and Mr. Trump’s persistent needling, were intended to undermine the special counsel’s investigation in which he is a potential witness.

Mr. McCabe is accused in a yet-to-be-released internal report of failing to be forthcoming about a conversation he authorized between F.B.I. officials and a journalist.

In a statement released late Friday, Mr. Sessions said that Mr. McCabe had shown a lack of candor under oath on multiple occasions.

The heads have begun rolling, the first of many. Surprising in view of the "protect our own" Washington standard. Plenty of cause: instructing that investigations be halted or never instituted, leaks, lying during congressional testimony.

Tom Fitton: how McCabe, Comey protected Clinton--and themselves (23:39)

Plenty of stuff yet to come out. Is Rosenstein on the chopping block? How about Strzok and Page?
And others yet unnamed.

This move reduces FBI roadblocks to criminal prosecutions yet become public against Clinton's crooked coterie.

The theme is Trump starting to make some moves

He has been the one who has been pushing the most that Russia interfered with the election and now he is conveniently a news source for CNN. This should upset anyone with a brain, yet it hasn't.

The OIG found that McCabe had broken the FBI rules and he was fired because of it. The way that the FBI covered for Hillary is a huge stain on the organization and when it was known that the words in Comey's investigation were changed, a new investigation should have been started. Grossly Negligent was what Comey originally wrote and if those words would have been left in his report, Hillary would have been charged for mishandling classified information. It's very obvious that she did to anyone who has their eyes open.

Never in the history of this country have people had such disrespect for the president and his staff.

There are some people who are awoke and they see what the intelligence agencies did to try to derail Trump before he won the election and since then.

I'm feeling like we are being played again. Barry McCaffery is also denigrating Trump in the media and both these men know damn well that Russia did nothing with the election. Nope, I'm getting a vibe that this is just more shit being shoveled.

The western general public is so terminally zombified that false flag attacks can now be announced 4 weeks in advance

@snoopydawg You will be hearing, at no surprise to any here, that every NeverTrumper, will scream louder than before about Bad Trump (which he is but they're worse). Of course Mad Maxine and her brother by a different mother Mad Adam will scream impeachment more loudly than ever. DWS better keep her effing mouth shut because she is in so deep that she may be one of the few Congresspersons going to jail because of the DNC cheating (a little reason) and the Awan spy ring (a big deal).

People said that he had no experience in foreign policy and they were right. Now that he has been fired, people are very upset about it because of reasons.

This happened when Comey spoke about the new Hillary emails that were found on Weiner's laptop. Then when Trump fired him, they were upset about it for the same reasons.

They used to question the intelligence agencies and whatever they told us and now they're hanging on every word they say. All of this because of their hatred for Trump.

Russia needs to be nuked because a marketing firm 'influenced' the election by running some click-bait ads not even referring to the election and mostly after it was done, and a political party rigging the election even more blatantly than usual and claiming in court that private parties have a right to run and rig faked elections is 'a little thing'...

People could die laughing over this.

Psychopathy is not a political position, whether labeled 'conservatism', 'centrism' or 'left'.

A tin labeled 'coffee' may be a can of worms or pathology identified by a lack of empathy/willingness to harm others to achieve personal desires.

@Ellen North

as you stated, none of the ads were about the election nor did they mention the two candidates, yet somehow people are convinced that those ads were the deciding factor in the election. But this is how propaganda works. Just keep repeating the same meme over and over and people won't even question whether it is true or not.

ToP this morning is in a frenzy because Trump's lawyer wants the Mueller investigation SHUT DOWN!!

He did not say anything close to that. His words were more like: "It's time that Mueller close the investigation into the Russian collusion"

But ToP is fanning the anger and telling people to get ready to take to the streets if Trump fires Mueller. Country wide work stoppages and other tactics over this fraud, yet none of them thought of doing this over the many illegal wars we've gone on, or the tax bill or any of the other horrible things that this country and government have done. Nope, just this false investigation that Hillary and Podesta cooked up after she lost.

She is the biggest loser in history because of what the consequences might be. And many people are on board with it.

@snoopydawg the DC Trump swamp pythons will squeeze every bit of conspiracy from McCabe before sending him on an all-expense paid vacation at Gitmo. Heads will roll in unprecedented numbers since Madam DeFarge started knitting.
