Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire.

Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found “that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.”

He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.”

The move will likely cost McCabe a significant portion of his retirement benefits, though it is possible he could bring a legal challenge. McCabe has been fighting vigorously to keep his job, and on Thursday, he spent nearly four hours inside the Justice Department pleading his case.

I am virtually certain that McCabe will wind up getting his full retirement benefits. The circumstances surrounding his firing are so far outside the norm in terms of timing, due process and politicization by the president that they will not stand. Even the timing of the firing, at roughly 10pm on Friday night, would likely mean that the paperwork could not be fully completed until Monday unless it had already been done before the decision was made, and so his retirement would already have taken effect.

The pettiness of this administration is mindboggling. It is sad enough that Trump believes that he can do whatever he wants without any accountability. When so many others who absolutely know better enable, support and follow his lead, we need to make sure they are taken to task, voted out of office, fought in the courts and rooted out before they get fully established. And the time is short.

Who is more evil/pathetic/punk-ass? Assholes like Trump himself, or John/Jane Q Public who continue to support him?

Andrew McCabe was just offered a job by a congressman so he can get his full retirement. And it just might work.

Love it!

The only thing better would be to see the orange ones face when he found out about it.

At least three reps reached out to him- the two mentioned in the article, and I saw a tweet from my Congresswoman as well. Sometimes you have to bless the loopholes.

Rep. Pocan is a cool dude. This country needs a House full of him.
