Disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired from his position upon the recommendation of the IG, after a year-long investigation that revealed McCabe was a leaker and lied to FBI investigators under oath.
Now, the discredited Deep State crony is coming out swinging, claiming he was fired in order to undermine Robert Mueller’s phony “Russia probe.”

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe called his dismissal an attempt to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling, according to a report Friday from The New York Times.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe Friday night over allegations he authorized the disclosure of sensitive information to a reporter. McCabe believes his dismissal, who served as sitting FBI director after James Comey’s ousting last May, is an effort to derail Mueller’s probe.
“The idea that I was dishonest is just wrong. This is part of an effort to discredit me as a witness,” McCabe told reporters Friday shortly after his dismissal. Some viewed the outgoing deputy director as a potential witness in a probe determining the degree with which Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
