[Ed. – When Strzok decided to sue, I wondered if this was going to become a trend. McCabe at least has a wealthy wife and can probably afford the legal bills. But I’m thinking there’s a tactical angle here, or maybe three or four.]
The crybabies from the Obama Department of Justice are fighting back, but this is no noble crusade. … Disgraced ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe was fired by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions because, well, he lied under oath during an internal investigation concerning who at the DOJ was leaking information to The Wall Street Journal about a Clinton Foundation inquiry. Now, in McCabe’s world, he thinks he was fired because Trump interfered (via NPR):
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has sued the Trump administration for what he calls his “unlawful” termination, arguing that his firing last year was the result of improper political interference by the president.
“It was Trump’s unconstitutional plan and scheme to discredit and remove DOJ and FBI employees who were deemed to be his partisan opponents because they were not politically loyal to him,” the complaint alleges.
