About your retirement…
By Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge
Cruel and unusual? Perhaps. But The NY Times reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reviewing a recommendation to fire the former F.B.I. deputy director, Andrew G. McCabe, just days before he is scheduled to retire on Sunday.
As a reminder, McCabe stepped down in late January, though reports suggested McCabe was reportedly forced to step down. According to Fox News, McCabe was “removed” from his post as deputy director, “leaving the bureau after months of conflict-of-interest complaints from Republicans including President Trump.”
That is the recommendation of the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility (equivalent of an Internal Affairs unit).

- The FBI is calling for former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to be fired
- McCabe came under scrutiny for his handling of the investigation into the Clinton Foundation
- Attorney General Jeff Sessions is likely to fire McCabe
The FBI determined in an internal review that former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should be terminated, according to a report from The New York Times.
That leaves Attorney General Jeff Sessions in charge of determining whether to fire McCabe, who is set to retire with full benefits on Sunday.
The FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility issued the recommendation after receiving information from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz. The watchdog has been conducting an investigation of the bureau’s handling of the Clinton email investigation. (RELATED: Andrew McCabe Authorized Media Leaks, Misled Investigators)
I would still like to see him prosecuted, but this is an excellent start as termination for cause will deprive him of his pension.
