Friday, March 16th, is do or die for the decision over Andrew McCabe and his $1.8 million dollar pension.
The FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility has recommended Attorney General Jeff Sessions terminate former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe for his alleged actions on the FBI’s Hillary Clinton email probe and Clinton Foundation probe.
Jeff Sessions has until Friday, March 16th, at 5 p.m. EDT to fire McCabe before the weekend or else he’s set to receive his pension starting Sunday, also his 50th birthday.
Fox News reports:
Over the last year, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been reviewing the FBI and DOJ’s actions related to its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
On Wednesday, fresh evidence emerged that Horowitz may be winding down his efforts. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is considering firing McCabe over the findings in Horowitz’s review, sources said.
According to the New York Times, Horowitz concludes in his report that McCabe was not forthcoming during the review, which included an examination of McCabe allowing FBI officials to speak with reporters about the investigation into the Clintons.
McCabe is being investigated for a plethora of potentially federal offenses. McCabe also has deep ties to the Democratic Party through his family.
Fox continues, Horowitz’s investigation is looking at a variety of allegations, including whether it was improper for former FBI Director James Comey to make a public announcement about not recommending prosecution over the Clinton email arrangement.
Horowitz also is reviewing whether McCabe should have recused himself from the probe early because of his family’s ties to the Democratic Party. (He did not do so until a week before the election.)
McCabe’s wife ran as a Democrat for a Virginia state Senate seat in 2015, and she received donations from the super PAC of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a close Clinton ally.
During an interview on Fox News, Jonathan Turley, a George Washington University Law School professor, slammed McCabe, claiming there’s a chance McCabe isn’t charged, “This is part of the sort of ‘Animal Farm’ existence we have in Washington, where everyone’s equal but some people are more equal than others. McCabe is one of those people that may be more equal than others.”
On Twitter, McCabe is no friend of the Republican Party. Read how people on the right feel about McCabe below.
I'm with Lou Dobbs.
If Sessions doesn't fire McCabe, Trump should fire Sessions.
America's top law enforcement officer should not have to be petitioned to indict criminals, much less terminate their employment.

You know what would be fair?
Let’s ask General Michael Flynn if Andy McCabe deserves the benefit of the doubt and should keep his pension

Hearing McCabe is saying two things today: pleading to keep his job, and threatening there will be consequences for people if he gets fired
