Andrew McCabe’s firing (just before retirement) recommended by FBI Office of Professional Responsibility
Both the New
York Times and Washington
Post are reporting that the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility has
recommended that AG Jeff Sessions fire Andrew McCabe, a mere days before his
scheduled retirement on Sunday, after which he would be able to cash the
generous pension checks that federal employees receive for the rest of his
life. Depending on his longevity, that would amount to hundreds of thousands of
dollars or even more.
This last-minute attempt at
accountability comes as the first tangible disciplinary fruit of the
investigation by the Department of Justice’s Inspector General Michael
Horowitz, who made a referral to the OPR.
Here is the Washington Post’s
explanation of McCabe’s firing offense: (Monica
Showalter explained this incident for AT readers in much more detail last
The FBI office that handles employee
discipline has recommended firing the bureau’s former deputy director over
allegations that he authorized the disclosure of sensitive information to a
reporter and misled investigators when asked about it, leaving Attorney General
Jeff Sessions to decide whether he should fire the veteran official just four
days before his expected retirement date, people familiar with the matter said.
Justice Department Inspector General
Michael E. Horowitz has for some time been working on a report that blasts
McCabe for allowing two high-ranking bureau officials to sit down with the Wall
Street Journal as the news outlet prepared a report in 2016 on an investigation
into Hillary Clinton’s family foundation, then misleading the inspector
general’s team about his actions. A person familiar with the matter said
Horowitz’s findings are what sparked the Office of Professional
Responsibility’s recommendation, which was first reported by the New York
Times. Horowitz’s report has not been released, and McCabe denies having misled
anyone, a person familiar with the case said.
I celebrate this move to fire McCabe,
fearing that, like Lois Lerner, he could be locked into big money for no work
despite his misdeeds. His firing for cause at least raises the possibility of
impairing or stopping those benefits, though I am not certain that this would
be automatic. Generally, federal employees enjoy extensive rights of appeal. AG
Sessions should act promptly.
Sundance, of Conservative
Tree House is suspicious of the motivations behind the leak to two of the
most vigorous media critics of President Trump. Given the level of intrigue we
have seen within the FBI of late, I can’t rule out some sort of set-up of
Should he be fired before receiving millions from taxpayers? HELL yes!
If Attorney General
Jeff Sessions fires McCabe, the controversial narrative is that he’s desperately
doing the bidding of President Trump who has tweeted about McCabe being corrupt
If Attorney General
Jeff Sessions doesn’t fire McCabe, the controversial narrative is that
Session’s is showing more evidence of his own weakness and motive to protect
the swamp creatures; which will make Sessions seem like he is in alignment with
McCabe and simultaneously anger the President and all his supporters.
Even if this was the intent behind
the leak, McCabe must be fired. And the blowback that Sundance fears can
readily be dismissed on the basis of the recommendation's origins. But Sundance
raises other good questions:
If there was an actual
OPR office – containing any semblance of professional watchdog
intent – then where the hell were they over the past few years while the
entire organization was engaged in brutally corrupt activity.
