The Justice Department has reversed former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s firing, charging that the Trump administration unlawfully terminated him on the eve of his retirement for political purposes.

According to the New York Times, the 53-year-old McCabe will be granted full retirement, allowing him to receive his pension and other benefits as well as $200,000 in missed pension payments.

“In addition, the department agreed to expunge any mention of his firing from F.B.I. personnel records,” noted the Times. “The agreement even made clear that he would receive the cuff links given to senior executives and a plaque with his mounted F.B.I. credentials and badge.”

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe in 2018 for allegedly lying to investigators about releasing unauthorized information to the Wall Street Journal regarding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email servers. The firing occurred just one day prior to McCabe’s retirement, a firing his lawyers argued was politically motivated due to his role in the Russian collusion investigation. Per the Times:

Mr. McCabe and his lawyers had argued that he was fired because he refused to swear loyalty to the president at the time. He also had been part of F.B.I. leadership that opened an investigation into whether any Trump campaign associates had conspired with Russia in the 2016 presidential election. Mr. Trump repeatedly called the inquiry a witch hunt and fired the F.B.I. director at the time, James B. Comey, after expressing his fury about the investigation.
Nearly a month after he was fired, the inspector general released his findings, issuing a report on Mr. McCabe’s conduct, saying he had failed to be completely honest in answering questions about his role in the news media leak about the Clinton case.
Mr. McCabe sued over his dismissal, saying he was a victim of political retaliation. In the suit, he said that Mr. Sessions, Mr. Wray and others “served as Trump’s personal enforcers rather than the nation’s highest law enforcement officials, catering to Trump’s unlawful whims instead of honoring their oaths to uphold the Constitution.”
Prosecutors under former Attorney General William Barr ultimately declined to indict McCabe for his alleged conduct – a move that that was largely interpreted as a signal to President Trump that the DoJ would remain independent from the White House.

In a statement, McCabe expressed hope that the reversal of his firing will give “hope” to future civil servants to stand up for truth. He said:

Politics should never play a role in the fair administration of justice and Civil Service personnel decisions. I hope that this result encourages the men and women of the F.B.I. to continue to protect the American people by standing up for the truth and doing their jobs without fear of political retaliation.
Murad Hussain, one of McCabe’s lawyers from the firm Arnold & Porter, referred to the former FBI official’s firing as a “travesty” on the rule of law.

“What happened to Andrew was a travesty, not just for him and his family, but the rule of law,” said Hussain. “We filed this suit to restore his retirement benefits, restore his reputation and take a stand for the rights of all civil servants, and that’s exactly what this settlement does.”

Yep, just another example of the " royals " getting away with whatever they want !

If any of us even look cross eyed at them, they will send a swat team to your house at 0300, kill your pets, family, and you, then high five each other. We are the enemy, and don't ever forget it.

PREDICTION:
I have family that are LEO and fire - so I do NOT make the following comments easily nor do I take them lightly.

in the future WHEN things go south in a big way - these early morning guests will be treated with the same reception that the unfortunate officers received in Harris Cty TX earlier this morning - 2 killed and others wounded. we assume these were operating in accordance with their oaths - i.e. in a just, lawful and responsible manner.

should that day come when we are "subjected" to outright and frequent jackboot thuggery the recompense from J6P will be similar.

repeating for clarification - I do not lightly make ^^those predictions^^ and I have family in these positions. I KNOW with certainty they would have no part in the thuggery.

The more this happens, the less legitimacy those in the Swamp and the Triumvirate have, both with the "unwashed" (civilian and staff) and amongst themselves. With their demonstrated proclivities and competency it's only a matter of time before some bright bulb decides they can do better than those with the current titles.

The time it takes and what comes with it are neither desired but are inevitable. And what Caesar gives he can take away.....McCabe isn't out of the woods yet, he knows too much.

They couldn't exonerate McCabe and then hang Scheller (I know I screwed up the name) out to dry. I mean they could have but that would have made their hypocrisy a little too obvious. Buncha jackasses is all they are. Wonder what McCabe got for playing the fall guy for a little while.

The difference between the Marine and McCabe is that the Marine happened to have won the "luck of the judicial draw."

Either the judge was principled, or saw through the leadership sham (or had information on it), or was following instructions to "not let this blow up and throw more mud on the Administration." (This last most likely.)

McCabe is sufficiently out of the optics, and the public originally confused by McCabe's role in the Deep State FBI Collusion - I know this horse was - there were SO many "players" and so many conspired against Trump that it was hard to tell rump from nose. So McCabe was a small "optic loss" to the MEEDIA generally - and especially at this time.

Meanwhile, he'll now be able to write his book, get a BIG stipend from Left Wing Publishing Houses and Art Galleries for his work whatever it is, and maybe sell a dozen books - and he's being rewarded for his part in the Deep State Collusion.

This lest he "turn" and write a true "tell all" book.

There is a reason a REAL tell all book has not been written to date.

So if you are government and lie it is okay. If you are not, go to jail.
