“Andrew McCabe was fired for cause.” Too simple? Well… Daily Caller’s Vince Coglianese elaborates.
“Why was Andrew McCabe fired? Lack of candor, lying to the FBI,” Coglianese explains.
“There’s a whole lot here to unpack, here’s what we know. Andrew McCabe was fired for cause. If you’re an FBI official, you can’t lie to your own agency–and that’s what he stands accused of,” he says.
“The IG handed this off to the Office of Professional Responsibility, they recommended a firing, and Jeff Sessions did what? He fired them, upon their recommendation. This is about as clean-cut process it gets in the FBI. Andrew McCabe should know that, despite what he’s saying now,” Coglianese says
According to MSNBC regarding the firing of Andrew McCabe:
And while it’s entirely possible McCabe took steps he shouldn’t have – the full report has not yet been made available to the public – it’s difficult to take the official line seriously after seeing Donald Trump’s taunting end-zone dance over the weekend. The president’s critics responded to McCabe’s firing by arguing that the move appeared to be part of a politically motivated vendetta orchestrated by the Oval Office – and Trump took steps to prove his critics right.
The president celebrated McCabe’s firing as “a great day for democracy,” adding, “Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!” Trump also published a tweet with some demonstrably false Clinton-related conspiracy theories, insisting that McCabe was “caught, called out and fired.”
Though Major Democrat Adam Schiff says the firing may have been justified:
“There’s no way for us to know at this point, but even though it may have been justified, it can also be tainted,” Schiff said on ABC News’ “This Week,” referencing McCabe’s potential role in a probe investigating the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia.
