Andrew McCabe Claims Firing Was Unconstitutional And ‘Politically Motivated’

Andrew McCabe, former deputy director of the FBI has filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging that his firing was unconstitutional and ‘politically motivated.’

“Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe filed suit Thursday against the FBI and Justice Department, claiming that his March 2018 ouster — on the day he planned to retire after a 21-year career — was politically motivated retaliation driven by President Donald Trump, who was angry at McCabe’s role in the investigation of his campaign’s links to Russia.

“It was Trump’s unconstitutional plan and scheme to discredit and remove DOJ and FBI employees who were deemed to be his partisan opponents because they were not politically loyal to him,” according to McCabe’s lawsuit. “Plaintiff’s termination was a critical element of Trump’s plan and scheme.””

Once you read the entire lawsuit, which you can find here, a few things become clear. 

McCabe is incredibly defensive about whether he did or didn’t have any involvement/knowledge of anything to do with the Hillary Clinton email investigation

He goes 100% all in on protecting James Comey, to the point of even stating multiple times that yes, Trump demanded absolute loyalty from everyone!

McCabe claims in the lawsuit that once McCabe refused to give Trump complete allegiance, Trump then weaponized Jeff Sessions and Christopher Wray against him.

The McCabe lawsuit also alleges that Trump was angry about the Russia probe (who wouldn’t be given its entire premise was false?) and thus planned an elaborate retaliation scheme against McCabe.

The entire lawsuit is one for the books. However, where McCabe gets even MORE defensive is in regards to his wife’s Virginia state senate run in 2015. Jill McCabe’s campaign, Trump’s tweets about a certain campaign donation, and McCabe’s responses are detailed multiple times in the lawsuit.

It is evident that McCabe is incredibly pissed that a major PAC donation to his wife’s campaign was even mentioned by Trump!

Terry McAuliffe, a long-time friend of Hillary Clinton, was one of those who recruited Jill McCabe to run for office. And then his PAC (Common Good VA) along with the VA Democrat party donated a total of $675,000 to her campaign. 

Well, it gets even fishier when you read McCabe’s lawsuit. This is what is stated on page 12:

“During the 2015 election campaign, one state senate campaign received $803,500 from Common Good VA, another received $781,500, and Dr. McCabe’s campaign received $467,500. McAuliffe was a Democrat and, in 2008, had served as the co-chair of then-Senator Clinton’s first presidential campaign.

52. Plaintiff had no knowledge of Common Good VA’s contribution to Dr. McCabe’s campaign until late October 2016.”

His role as an FBI agent aside, are you seriously telling me that McCabe and his wife never ever talked about her state senate campaign? Are you seriously telling me that Jill and Andrew McCabe didn’t say a WORD to each other about politics or her campaign while she was running? Receiving that much in campaign donations from just 2 sources is a BIG DEAL. And yet Andrew McCabe is claiming in the lawsuit that he never found out about it until more than a year later?

I call Bullshit.

Jill has publicly stated that none of the donations to her campaign had any bearing on what Andrew McCabe did and didn’t do when tasked with investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails. The thing is, the Clintons and those closest to them, including Terry McAuliffe are all about power and leveraging resources.

In my opinion, that doesn’t pass the smell test.

McCabe tells us the reasons he needs to be reinstated and granted back pay along with his pension is because his 1st amendment right to freedom of speech along with his 5th amendment right to due process was thrown into the ditch. Now, where have we heard that before? Oh yeah, the lawsuit that Peter Strzok filed earlier this week. Are their lawyers talking to each other? It sure seems so given the similarity in talking points found in both lawsuits!

Both lawsuits are indeed bizarre. Then again, McCabe’s 60 Minutes interview took numerous weird turns.

One other item of note, McCabe’s lawsuit goes into backflips to make sure that we know that his lying under oath about talking to the press is really just no big deal. Except that it is. We know it, and so does Andrew McCabe.

The McCabe and Strzok lawsuits reek of desperation. It is going to be interesting watching all of this play out given the DOJ report is due next month.

    If I were the judge, I’d throw it out on that basis, alone, since there’s absolutely nothing in the Constitution that speaks to this. Therefore, he was obviously fired for gross incompetence.

    I hope he and Strojk end up as WalMart greeters in a west Nebraska nowhere town, pimping themselves out for clown shows on weekends.

    AND governor of Virginia. Unfortunately.

    McAuliffe was a Democrat and, in 2008, had served as
    They neglect to mention that he was governor at that time, too. Wow.

    are you seriously telling me that McCabe and his wife never ever talked about her state senate campaign?
    Meh. I’m willing to believe that. I’m not willing to believe that sort of donation doesn’t mean some close personal ties to important Dems. Nor that his wife didn’t influence his choices in life – and she was running for state senate, not DA or state attorney general (so definitely political).

    Are their lawyers talking to each other?
    Is there anyone who doesn’t think that McCabe’s was only introduced after Strojk’s wasn’t laughed out of court (the court of public opinion was a little busy that week)?

    The timing of these bizarre lawsuits
    Oh yeah. I think they can tie up certain discovery elements if they’re already legally embroiled.
    (If this were an attempt to hurt Trump’s re-election, they’d have waited until at least next year around this time.)

    lying under oath … is really just no big deal
    He and Comey can share Martha Stewart’s old cell. “No big deal” indeed.

    Watching the (democ)-rats scurry would be comical if not for the stench of evil emanating from them.

  • rbj1 says:

    He does realize there will be discovery, right?

    Oh, and signing of on a FISA search warrant application that contains false information is not just a fireable offense, it’s criminal.
