He can apply like any other Civil Service worker. Congress should wash their hands clean of this lying, thieving SOB.
So that’s where his “depression” came from. If I had a federal indictment handing over my head I’d be depressed too.
If the republicans cave into to this crook and give him a FULL PENSION (same as his salary) wipe your hands clean of the entire Congress, because they are as corrupt as hell.
If retired on disability, that's just for a few years, and at a substantial reduction since it will be untaxed pay. When he got switched over to FERS ~ once he was eligible ~ he'd get maybe 44% (10 more years of building on the 1%), but if he leaves without disability, he ends up having banked a 34% pension.
I think just state and local government employees get anything like a full salary full pension!
