Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe was fired Friday evening, less than 48 hours before he planned to formally retire and collect a full pension.
Hey Andrew, we are not done with you yet. I do believe there is an orange jumpsuit in your future.

McCabe, who had stepped down from his post earlier this year but remained an FBI employee, had been accused by the Justice Department’s inspector general of authorizing the disclosure of sensitive information to a reporter and misleading investigators when asked about it.
McCabe had been a lightning rod in the political battles surrounding the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe into whether any Trump associates coordinated with Russian agents to interfere in the 2016 presidential race.
McCabe ran the FBI for three turbulent months last year, assuming the director’s job on an acting basis after James B. Comey was fired in May. McCabe was hoping to retire Sunday, when he becomes eligible for his full benefits. With his firing, he could lose a significant portion of those benefits.

Forget the pension.
McCabe is liable to be charged with felonies for his politically perversion of the justice system under President Obama’s. https://t.co/zeqAmMfEV7

If McCabe is fired, Democrats will want you to feel bad that he is losing his pension.
McCabe ruined the life of Mike Flynn and wanted to ruin Trump as well. Fire the liberal hack and give his pension money to Flynn.
