FBI No. 2 Responds to His Firing With Bombshell Statement

The same day that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was terminated by the Justice Department, the seemingly disgraced employee fired back with his own account of what happened and why he believes he was fired.

As reported by The Western Journal, the former FBI official’s termination — which occurred just days before he would have been eligible for a lifetime pension — came after the DOJ determined he displayed a blatant disregard for the truth when giving testimony to investigators about the bureau’s probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of private email server.

However, McCabe insisted that he is being singled out, and outright denied any charges of misconduct.

“I absolutely never misled the inspector general in any way,” McCabe told CNN, effectively arguing that the Trump administration is trying to attack his reputation.

In a statement released Friday night, McCabe further explained why he believes the Trump administration is looking to destroy his credibility.

“It is part of this Administration’s ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the Special Counsel investigation, which continue to this day,” he added. “Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the Special Counsel’s work.”

McCabe’s counter coincides with other reports that suggest there is more to the story regarding the termination of both McCabe and former FBI Director James Comey, and that it has less to do with their integrity and more to do with drawing the ire of President Donald Trump.

According to Fox News, Republicans have a history of criticizing McCabe for his ties to the Democratic Party, as his wife had received donations — including from a group connected to Clinton — during her 2015 Virginia state Senate run, which ultimately failed.

In a tweet late last year, Trump pointed out what he saw as corruption on the part of McCabe.

 

According to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, however, the president was not part of the decision to fire McCabe.
