How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin’ James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife’s campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?

Inspector General Michael Horowitz investigated McCabe for authorizing FBI agents to share documents with a Wall Street Journal reporter on their probe into Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. The subsequent WSJ article described an “internal feud” in the bureau over how to proceed over additional Hillary Clinton emails discovered in October. 

McCabe responded that his termination is part of an effort to “taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally.” He also told the New York Times, that the Trump administration fired him in order to discredit him as a witness for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “Russian probe.”

His firing comes two days before his 50th birthday, when he would be eligible for retirement benefits. Trump pointed out McCabe’s potential retirement in a tweet in December. (CNN).
