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.
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.
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
