Fired FBI official Andrew McCabe wins retirement benefits and back pay in settlement

Source: NPR

The Justice Department has agreed to restore full law enforcement benefits and provide some attorney fees for former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired by the Trump administration only hours before his retirement three years ago.

The settlement will resolve a civil lawsuit filed by McCabe, who argued that his ouster was the result of a "years-long public vendetta" driven by the former president.

The Justice Department demoted and then dismissed him on the eve of his 50th birthday in March 2018, when his FBI annuity would have vested.

"I think the message that you get loud and clear from the terms of the settlement is that this never should have happened," McCabe said. "It feels like complete vindication, because that's what it is."

11. Given how often Trump has proven himself to be a petty vindictive asshole firing McCabe like that

was hardly surprising.

A reminder of what a mean, vindictive bastard Trump is. Hope this really pisses off the orange anus.

10. I'm sure it will!


And the best part is he has no Twitter or Facebook to go on and rant about what "losers" McCabe and Biden are.

4. I'm sorry he had to go through this to get what he earned.

Perpetuated by someone who never earned anything, just inherited or stole it.

7. Wonderful.

Asshole45 fired him in one of his childish fits, and deprived him the retirement benefits he worked so hard for.

Good for Mr. McCabe, and screw Trump.

13. Very good news

McCabe was fired and cut off from benefits as an act of retribution by tfg. It was wrong, and he was being punished. I'm glad his benefits were reinstated.
