Skip to comments.McCabe Sues Trump for "Wrongful Termination" [semi-satire]
Posted on 04/22/2018 10:04:31 AM PDT by John Semmens
Fired for lack of candor, former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe is set to sue the Trump administration for wrongful termination. Michael Bromwich, McCabes lawyer, cited former FBI Director James Comeys bookA Hired Loyaltyas confirmation that my client getting fired for lying contradicts the Agencys ethical standards so clearly laid out by Mr. Comey.
In his book and interviews since its publication, Comey has admitted lying when circumstances require it. Everyone in the DOJ has lied when necessary to nail a criminal for which we lacked the evidence to prosecute or to protect confidential sources. Take current Special Counsel Bob Mueller, for example. There was a time in his career when he found it necessary to convict four innocent men to prevent informant Whitey Bulgers identity from being outed. That was a strategically designed sacrifice in the pursuit of a higher justice. It didnt make Mueller a bad person. Likewise, the lies I have told in my efforts to try to block a man who is morally unfit to be this nations president dont make me a bad person.
Mr. Trumps characterization of my client as a leaker and a liar are defamatory, Bromwich argued. It is a blatant attempt to use instances of normal FBI procedures to smear Mr. McCabes reputation and, thereby, deny him the millions of dollars in pension benefits to which his years of service entitle him.
McCabe himself laughed off Inspector General Horowitzs criminal referral, saying FBI deputies dont go to jail. We send other people to jail. This is how its always been since the days of J. Edgar and will continue to be for as long as the Agency exists. Well, maybe not. Former FBI agent Terry Albury is headed to prison for leaking classified information on the Agencys racially discriminatory hiring practices to the media last year.
