[Ed. – Do most of his donors have a clue who he really is?]
In our polarized age of spite-based politics, some partisans have taken the ‘enemy of my enemy is my friend’ concept to preposterous lengths. One of the more bizarre manifestations of this phenomenon has been the celebration and cultural martyrdom of a number of law enforcement officials who’ve been fired from their jobs over professional misconduct. Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who repeatedly and knowingly lied to federal investigators, was showered with cash by The Resistance after his dismissal, because he was a frequent target of President Trump’s ire. If Trump hates him, let’s send him some cash. So what if he broke the law? It wasn’t just grassroots lefties who got in on the action; multiple Democratic members of Congress also offered McCabe federal jobs in order to help him receive his full taxpayer-funded pension. Now that disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok has gotten the axe, lefty money is flowing in his direction, too: Roughly $300,000 in less than 24 hours, in fact. Might some cushy job offers also be forthcoming?
