The God-Emperor and his Grand Inquisitor have sent the Deep State an important message: no, we’re not going to let you bury your sins and pretend that business is usual as you ride off into the retirement sunset to collect a fat government pension. We’re going to very publicly fire your corrupt ass even if you are already halfway out the door.
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has been fired, effective immediately the Department of Justice said late Friday night. The decision comes as FBI officials recommended his firing, as they wait for a Department of Justice Inspector General report critical of him to be released.
In a statement, the Department of Justice said “the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor − including under oath − on multiple occasions.”
The decision, not unexpected, came two days before McCabe was set to retire Sunday. The 49-year-old is likely to keep at least some of his pension.
In a phone interview with CBS News’ senior investigator producer Pat Milton, McCabe said he “rejects the findings in the [Inspector General] report,” calling it “misleading and unfair.” “I strongly believe this is the latest chapter in a yearlong attack on my credibility and service to the country,” McCabe said.
President Trump tweeted shortly after midnight that it was a “great day” for the FBI and “sanctimonious” former FBI director James Comey made McCabe “seem like a choir boy.”

Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI – A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!
This isn’t over. In fact, as far as the public disclosures go, it hasn’t even really begun. Despite their high FBI rank, Comey and McCabe are just third tier players, at most.
McCabe also said: “This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally.”
He’s right that his firing is one small part of a larger effort, only it’s not slander, he has no credibility, and the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals to whom he refers are a collection of corrupt Deep State criminals whose crimes in service to their globalist masters are going to be exposed, investigated, and prosecuted.
It’s also worth noting that while he is engaged in DRAINING THE SWAMP, the God-Emperor hasn’t forgotten about his other priority.
If we don’t have a wall system, we’re not going to have a country. Congress must fund the BORDER WALL & prohibit grants to sanctuary jurisdictions that threaten the security of our country & the people of our country. We must enforce our laws & protect our people! #BuildTheWall
