So it happened.
Based on the recommendation of the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility and the investigation of the Inspector General, Attorney General Jeff Sessions officially terminated former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe late yesterday.
President Trump celebrated the decision via Twitter as justice served.
As we reported yesterday, this formally kills McCabe’s million-dollar pension for which he otherwise would have qualified after twenty years in the bureau.
His role in the dubious FISA warrant along with lying about media manipulation during multiple investigations isn’t just professional misconduct, it’s criminal.

The Justice Department dealt a stunning blow to former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe on Friday night, firing him just days before he would have been eligible for a lifetime pension after determining that he lied to investigators reviewing the bureau’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s email server.
“Pursuant to Department Order 1202, and based on the report of the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, and the recommendation of the Department’s senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement.
“After an extensive and fair investigation and according to Department of Justice procedure, the Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) provided its report on allegations of misconduct by Andrew McCabe to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR),” Sessions said.
