"Patriots are not revolutionaries trying to overthrow the government of the United States.
Patriots are Counter-Revolutionaries trying to prevent the government from overthrowing the Constitution."

It had to be bitter
stuff to be former Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director Andrew
McCabe, fired a day before his planned "retirement" at age 50, losing
the fat pension he expected for the next 40 years (imagine getting an extra 40
years of what must be a six-figure salary for putting in only 20-some years of
work), plus all the medical and other bennies he expected coming to him.
Not bad for a guy who started out as a SWAT team commando.
You shouldn't have lied, Andy!
So with lots of money
from his "defense fund" raised on social media to burn, he's suing
for the records that led up to his firing. According to the Associated
The Justice Department has repeatedly refused to provide former FBI
Deputy Director Andrew McCabe with documents related to his firing, according
to a lawsuit filed on his behalf Tuesday.
The complaint says the Justice Department has publicly defended the
firing yet failed to identify for McCabe the policies and procedures it
followed before dismissing him. The department has withheld the
information, McCabe's lawyers allege, for fear that the materials could be used
against them in any additional lawsuits.
He should be careful
what he wishes for.
McCabe, recall, was
thrown out of his job for leaking to the press in his bid to Get Trump and then
lying to investigators about it. He engaged in sneaky, deceptive partisan
politics, both against Trump and in protecting his favored Hillary Clinton from
accountability for her actions, and as a result, he did untold damage to the
reputation of the FBI as an impartial organization solely devoted to the rule
of law. His career, in fact, is a story of constant
sneakery. And he wasn't even upfront about it. Now he wants his
job back, and he's using his defense money to get it.
What makes this an
unlikely thing he will win on is the fact that it wasn't the Trump
administration that got him; it was the Department of Justice's Office of the
Inspector General, a group that has been there since the Obama days. It's
the same Department of Justice that seems to be withholding information from
everyone and is also the very department that appointed the special counsel to
Get Trump. The DoJ, which McCabe is suing, isn't exactly an ally of
Trump. The fact that its I.G. thought McCabe's acts were fire-worthy
couldn't have been based on any favoritism toward Trump.
Whatever turns up
from those records, if McCabe succeeds in his suit, isn't likely to be
career-burnishing – and it will become public.
Sure, he's mad.
And he's got money. But an angry guy with money isn't something
that usually ends well. McCabe should be careful what he wishes for.
