Andrew McCabe, as of last week, is a disgraced ex-Deputy Director/briefly, acting Director of the FBI, who stands accused of lying under oath.
According to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a member of both the Judiciary and House Oversight committees:
“Four times he lied. He lied to James Comey. He lied to the Office of Professional Responsibility, and he lied twice under oath to the inspector general” .
McCabe’s response, from his self-serving “who, me” piece for the Washington Post?
“I did not knowingly mislead or lie to investigators. When asked about contacts with a reporter that were fully within my power to authorize as deputy director, and amid the chaos that surrounded me, I answered questions as completely and accurately as I could. And when I realized that some of my answers were not fully accurate or may have been misunderstood, I took the initiative to correct them. At worst, I was not clear in my responses, and because of what was going on around me may well have been confused and distracted — and for that I take full responsibility.
You buying that? I hope not.
To use the analogy regular readers have seen here before: if the cashier where you eat lunch gives you the wrong change, sometimes giving you too much and sometimes too little, the Cashier makes mistakes. If every time the cashier gives you the wrong change it is too little, that’s not a mistake, you’re being shortchanged.
Similarly, if some of Andrew McCabe’s not fully accurate/not understood answers led in one direction and some in the other, he didn’t talk clearly. But they all led in one direction. You do the math.
Andrew McCabe was fired before he could immediately collect his retirement pension (which, despite some mistaken reports, as things stand he will get anyway, but not for another 7 years).
I can’t prove it, but I strongly suspect that he, along with other deep-staters in this beyond-slimy attempt to subvert the U.S. election system, should not get an eventual retirement pension, but should spend some of that time in jail.
