Liberals and fmr Obama regime loyalists have lost their minds since Andrew McCabe was officially fired late Friday night. To set the record straight, McCabe’s firing was not by Donald Trump, he had nothing to do with Andy getting canned! McCabe was fired by the DOJ based on the information provided by the Inspector General and a result of review by the FBI’s ethics department, The Office of Professional Responsibility.
McCabe was fired because 1) an IG investigation demanded by Democrats that was 2) directed by an Obama IG appointee resulted in 3) a recommendation from the FBI's ethics office that McCabe be terminated. Yet Democrats and NeverTrumpers believe this was a Trumpian conspiracy.

Rewind 2 mos ago, FBI Dir Wray viewed the FISA memo, before it was released, and within 24 hours he suspended McCabe. He was put on what is called a terminal leave, where all the sick, vacation and other paid time off accrued, but not used, was used up until now when McCabe expected to retire but instead was fired. There is far more information Wray, Sessions and others have access to vs obama’s loyalists who are all throwing a tantrum.
When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America…America will triumph over you. https://t.co/uKppoDbduj

Whoa! Just home & see much misinterp. of earlier tweet. It’s testament to polarized times that it cd be misread as referring to something other than Brennan’s indignation. So will translate: not a good idea to upset @JohnBrennan bc/ he will raise an angry (& eloquent) voice. https://t.co/YgIjeKGAlp

Analyze McCabe firing on two levels: the substance and the timing. We don’t know enough about the substance yet. The timing appears cruel and a cave that compromised DOJ independence to please an increasingly erratic President who should’ve played no role here. This is dangerous

Mr. President, the American people will hear my story very soon. And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not.

Gloat now, but you will be fired soon. And it’s not going to be done cowardly, as you’ve done to so many who’ve served you. There’s a storm gathering, Mr. President, and it’s going to wipe out you and your corrupt organization all the way down to the studs. https://t.co/I0UlNAlwxI

In the absence of the IG report, it’s impossible to evaluate the merits of this harsh treatment of a 21-year FBI professional. That it comes after the President urged the DOJ to deprive McCabe of his pension, and after his testimony, gives the action an odious taint. https://t.co/rpZqqxFp4u

… there is an IG report
The firing of Andrew McCabe is the latest attempt by the Trump administration to undermine the FBI, obstruct justice, and pervert the rule of law. Trump is intent on punishing and intimidating all of the dedicated law enforcement personnel who stand in his way.

From a “journalist”
One suggestion from a McCabe supporter: if a friendly member of Congress hired him for a week he could possibly qualify for pension benefits by extending his service the extra days

Plenty more but you get the idea. There is no war on the FBI by POTUS, if anything the upper echelon of the FBI/ DOJ are at war with Trump!
All parties whining are ignoring the fact McCabe has been caught in lies and broke the rules. His firing is flushing out all the rats (high and low level) that are engaged with the soft coup against President Trump. Does McCabe deserve to lose his pension after giving 20 years to the Bureau? YES! While we thank him for his service over 2 decades he.. HE CHOSE to throw it all away by being a partisan political activist, all because Hillary Clinton was the absolute worst candidate to run for POTUS who lost and lost miserably.
All these people need to get over themselves, and realize they’ve exposed themselves. There should be no doubt over how they all one way or another have played a role in the hopes to swing a presidential election, and then undermine.. frame with the intent to remove Donald Trump from office. This is what a silent coup looks like America, NO ONE cares what party they’re from or what branch they’ve served in. These people are your enemies. They think you’re stupid and don’t know whats best for yourselves. They refuse to accept the American people chose an outsider over an establishment candidate to run this country. This coup will never stop until every single RAT is outed, thrown out of office and hopefully a few in jail!
