Fired FBI Deputy Director McCabe’s lawyer just humiliated and warned Trump on Twitter

- Maret 18, 2018

After the shocking and unceremonious firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, his lawyer responded on Twitter to President Trump’s unhinged twitter tirade on the subject.

With only two days left before FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was scheduled to retire with his full pension, Attorney General Jeff Sessions bowed to President Trump’s pressure and fired McCabe, leaving him without a retirement fund after over 21 years of government service.

Trump wasted no time launching into a stream-of-consciousness rant on the subject via Twitter.

Add your name to tell Trump: We don’t need your fascist military parade in the United States of America!

He didn’t stop there.

He capped it off with yet another dig at McCabe.

Jeff Sessions didn’t acknowledge the president’s involvement in the decision, citing only the report issued by the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General and the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility, which investigated McCabe’s conduct during the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton and concluded that he lied about his role in the unauthorized disclosure of details of the ongoing investigation to the press.

McCabe, after unsuccessfully trying to convince Sessions and the Justice Department over the last few days that his firing so close to his already planned departure was unjustified, slammed the vindictive action as an attempt by the Trump administration “to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally.”

The American public is anxious to see if McCabe will challenge his dismissal in court and whether he will now be willing to reveal any other details of his FBI investigations publicly before Special Prosecutor Mueller lays out what his team has discovered.

Whatever the next steps, the vindictiveness of Trump and Sessions in stripping a dedicated civil servant of his long-earned pension is demonstrative of their desperation as the truth slowly worms its way into the light of day.

Based on McCabe and his lawyer’s responses, they’re not going to take this lying down, and neither should the American people.
