Fired FBI Goons Sue [semi-satire]
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 11 Aug 2019 | John Semmens

Former FBI employees—Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Special Agent Peter Strzok—are suing the federal government, alleging that they were improperly fired from their jobs.

McCabe contends that his firing was politically motivated. "President Trump wrongfully ordered my dismissal solely on the grounds that my efforts to prevent his election and undermine his presidency were not appropriate actions for a man in my position to take," McCabe said. "The orders I received to undertake the actions I took came down from duly appointed authorities in the FBI and DOJ. This includes the specific instruction to illegally leak classified information intended to mobilize voters to vote against Trump in the 2016 election. Getting fired for being a loyal follower of those above me in the chain of command was a moral atrocity."

Strzok contends that "the evidence gathered against me was illegally obtained without my consent. The government should have known that I would use the phone issued to me for private communications with Ms. Page. The revelation that many of these communications exposed my virulent animosity toward Trump invaded my privacy. That animosity was characterized as compromising my credibility as an investigator. That was unfair. All of us working with Director Comey and then Special Counsel Mueller shared the same animosity toward Trump. That I was singled out and made a scapegoat was manifestly unjust."

Despite being fired a year ago, Strzok is a frequent visitor to FBI headquarters, meets with high-level DOJ brass at a location across the street from the FBI headquarters, and still retains his top secret security clearance. His case has been assigned to Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. Jackson was appointed by President Obama and is expected to order Strzok reinstated with back pay and full pension rights. Perhaps McCabe will be equally "lucky" when his case is assigned to a judge.

None of these immoral, anti-American, treacherous, actors seems very concerned about any consequences for their treasonous type involvement.

“Improperly fired” Did someone mess up the termination paperwork? Missing comma or apostrophe somewhere?

Nice one. And didn’t both get their cases given to Amy Berman What’s-her-name? With her, no matter what, they will win their cases and the Gov’t will have to appeal to the SCOTUS.

When I was in the Air Force, it was made clear to us that carrying out an illegal order was itself a crime.
