A frequent target of President Trump, former FBI deputy director Andrew G. McCabe was recently fired.
On Friday after Attorney General Jeff Sessions rejected an appeal for retirement, McCabe was let go over questions he made. McCabe claimed to be a potential witness in the special counsel’s investigation and said his firing was part of a scheme.
Mr. McCabe was accused for his actions in an internal report for failing to come forward with the information he had authorized among the FBI and the news. Sessions released a statement confirming that McCabe has not been truthful under oath multiple times.
“The F.B.I. expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity and accountability,” he said. “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.”
President Trump had more to say to McCabe on Saturday morning over the issue.
During her Saturday opening statement on Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” Jeanine Pirro blasted former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for claiming “victim status” in his firing.
McCabe claimed his dismissal was an attempt to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
Pirro argued that McCabe should have been fired a long time ago and that he should have been taken out in handcuffs for lying under oath.
“Andy, I don’t know how to break this to you, but the only reason you are even in the news is because you’re a liar,” stated Pirro. “And when you lie under oath and to the FBI, you are a wrongdoer, you are a cheat and offender. So, McCabe, are you a crook, too?”
Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI – A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!
