It has now been confirmed that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has fired Andrew McCabe.
McCabe will now not be able to receive a pension or early retirement benefits as this comes 2 days prior to his official retirement.
This news will certainly make many supporters of President Trump happy as McCabe’s bias and corruption during his tenure has been well documented and exposed.
As reported by TheHill
His ouster comes just days before he was scheduled to retire on Sunday, after more than 20 years at the bureau. McCabe had already stepped down under pressure in January and has been on a leave of absence since.
“Pursuant to Department Order 1202, and based on the report of the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, and the recommendation of the Department’s senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately,” Sessions said in a statement Friday night.
The dismissal came at the recommendation of an internal FBI office that handles disciplinary matters. According to The New York Times, the recommendation was based on a finding from the Justice Department inspector general that McCabe was not forthcoming during the review, which includes an investigation into a decision he made in 2016 to allow FBI officials to speak with reporters about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
As predicted, FBI agent Andrew McCabe has just been fired late on a Friday night. That foreshadows big trouble for James Comey, Loretta Lynch and possibly Barack Obama. President Trump has to be happy tonight.
