Andrew McCabe is Fired

Post by Professor Fate » Fri Mar 16, 2018 6:07 pm

Two days before his retirement, in the light of the Inspector General of the Office of Professional Reporting. Possible criminal charges to come.

This entire administration has become a nightmarish cartoon. If I were Vladimir Putin, I might think this is a great time to make a bold, provocative move, and this whole shaky house of cards may come tumbling down.

One shaky house of cards is in real danger of tumbling down, and that is a complete unraveling of everything the Democrats have tried to do to bring down this administration. I believe a judge is looking into allowing General Flynn to withdraw his guilty plea. Many of the people who have been charged with crimes, may be looking at having most charges dismissed, and many officials of the Obama administration,such as Loretta Lynch, Jim Comey, Susan Rice, Jim Clapper, Peter Strzok, and Bruce Ohr have all got to be hearing footsteps now.

Keep in mind this is not Trump firing McCabe, this is the recommendation of the Inspector General of the Office of Professional Reporting, a non-political internal agency.

In addition...what is the saying about illegally obtained evidence? All of these investigations are tainted by "The Fruit of the Poisonous Tree."

There's a great line by Walter in The Big Lebowski; "say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, but at least it's an ethos." That's how I look at Mike Pence right now. Not that he's a Nazi, but that while I disagree with a huge portion of his beliefs, at least he believes something. Trump's government is a rudderless motorboat with the throttle at full speed.

Chicken**** move by Trump. I hope McCabe's book comes out soon and I hope the royalties more than cover whatever pension he loses.

Trump had nothing to do with it. It was the recommendation of the Inspector General of the Office of Professional Reporting...A civil service agency. The report must have been pretty damning, for Sessions to go along with it...after, I might add, several hours (maybe days) since the recommendation was received.

Inspector General is the investigative body, the Office of Professional Responsibility makes the recommendation based on findings of the IG...

For this to happen means the findings are egregious and McCabe will be facing criminal charges along with a host of others...

ORP is a non partisan Office of career civil servants and for them to take this action means serious violations of the oath all FBI agents take, and probably violations of the law.

The report will be released, but when potential criminal charges are pending and a Grand Jury convened it will delay the release...

I feel for Liberals the shoes are about to drop hard and they will be falling from way up High...

"The big picture is a tale of what can happen when law enforcement is politicized, public servants are attacked, and people who are supposed to cherish and protect our institutions become instruments for damaging those institutions and people," McCabe said.

"Here is the reality:," he added, "I am being singled out and treated this way because of the role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath of the firing of James Comey. The release of this report was accelerated only after my testimony to the House Intelligence Committee revealed that I would corroborate former Director Comey's accounts of his discussions with the President. The OIG's focus on me and this report became a part of an unprecedented effort by the Administration, driven by the President himself, to remove me from my position, destroy my reputation, and possibly strip me of a pension that I worked 21 years to earn. The accelerated release of the report, and the punitive actions taken in response, make sense only when viewed through this lens."

Just be careful, backing this guys play...the report is coming and McCabe's testimony has already been discredited...

In light of General Flynn being charged for lying about a legal activity and McCabe being deceptive on an illegal activity, Sessions had to fire McCabe based on IG findings and ORP has to make the call...

Have you ever noticed how often major events start out one way, and then end up going the other way?

Wars are great examples. WWII blitzkrieg ended up with the suicide in the bunker. The Japanese were unstoppable for the first six months or so after Pearl Harbor. The N Koreans pushed the US and its allies down to the Pusan Perimeter before being decimated and pushed almost to the Yalu before the Chinese came in and did almost the same thing, retaking Seoul for the 2nd time before being pushed back to the 38th parallel. Napoleon and Hitler pushing their way into Russia before stalling at Stalingrad, and then getting invaded by the counterattacking Russian Armies.

All this started out with an attempt to void the results of an election, and now suddenly the Democrats are the ones worrying.

Nothing like gloating about the firing of a decorated FBI agent, while still supporting a man who payed a porn star hush money. You have no moral and legal ground to stand on.

Hey Cheech and Chong, how about posting something about the actual reason McCabe was fired for.
Never mind, did it for you.

McCabe misled investigators about his role in directing other officials at the FBI to speak to The Wall Street Journal about his involvement in a public corruption investigation into the Clinton Foundation,

The fact is a big ball of illicit twine has just started to unravel and deep inside we are going to find quite likely, Clintons, Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice and Barrack Obama...but let's wait a bit before we speculate on just what happens but one thing is for sure if crimes were committed birds will be chirping...

That may be true...but the Scandal involves the following Obama Admin operatives and the Clintons:
Sally Yates
Michael Horowitz
James Baker
Peter Styzok
Lisa Page
Andrew McCabe
James Comey
Bruce Ohr
Susan Rice
Loretta Lynch

Early I know...bring on the flood of Denial....buying pop corn stocks...Hold on tight! It's going to be a bumpy ride...

There is a lot more than that Bromy...why so sandy Bruh?

At the time McCabe was investigating the Clintons he failed to disclose his wife got 500k from Terry McCauliffe...

Then misleading Congress and quite a bit more...it will be in the IG report, not to mention leaking information during on going investigations...and who told McCabe not to press forward when he claims he wanted to continue the investigation into SoS Clinton's handling of email on a private server and mishandling of Classified information, how was it Cheryl Mills and Huma Abadin were given immunity for no testimony?

Trust me Bromy...big ball of twine...

McCabe will get his chance to give his side to the judge. Don't be surprised though if he changes his tune and sings like a canary.

What is sad is McCabe had a great career but what is also pretty clear is there was an attempt to sway an election and take down a duly elected president...no matter how much you disagree that is a serious matter...and if found guilty...they going to jail...and they will do more time than Scooter...

What judge? For what crime?

The full statement from Sessions:

After an extensive and fair investigation and according to Department of Justice procedure, the Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) provided its report on allegations of misconduct by Andrew McCabe to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR).

The FBI’s OPR then reviewed the report and underlying documents and issued a disciplinary proposal recommending the dismissal of Mr. McCabe. Both the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor − including under oath − on multiple occasions.
