Deputy FBI Director Fired
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
On January 30, deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe resigned, effective immediately, saying he'd remain on the bureau payroll until eligible to retire with full benefits in mid-March.
According to Rep. Devin Nunes' classified memo approved for release by Trump, McCabe, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, along with former FBI Director James Comey were named as culpable parties involved in extensive Russiagate FISA abuses.
On Friday, one day before McCabe's eligibility to retire with full benefits, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired him, saying:
"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."
