Newly axed acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe isn’t taking his ouster sitting down.
After learning of his firing from the press release that was issued by the bureau, McCabe issued his own statement which included an ominous and likely not-so-veiled threat.
He warned, “All along we have said nothing, never wanting to distract from the mission of the FBI by addressing the lies told and repeated about us…No more.”
The question now is how he plans to respond. Will he name names and bring down the house of cards? It’s going to get interesting very soon.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
Just over a day before his scheduled retirement, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, stripping the career FBI agent of a half-million-dollar pension.
In return, McCabe broke his silence and said he was “being singled out and treated this way” for what he witnessed and did after President Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey.
McCabe issued a lengthy statement noting his 21-year career as a special agent and his case experience, including investigating Russian organized crime.
“For the last year and a half, my family and I have been the targets of an unrelenting assault on our reputation and my service to this country. Articles too numerous to count have leveled every sort of false, defamatory and degrading allegation against us. The president’s tweets have amplified and exacerbated it all. He called for my firing. He called for me to be stripped of my pension after more than 20 years of service. And all along we have said nothing, never wanting to distract from the mission of the FBI by addressing the lies told and repeated about us,” he said. “No more.”
