Trump's FBI target abruptly dismissed

McCabe expected to retire in days

By Compiled by Democrat-Gazette staff from wire reports

In this June 7, 2017 file photo, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe appears before a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act on Capitol Hill in Washington.

Andrew McCabe, the former FBI deputy director and a frequent target of President Donald Trump's scorn, was fired Friday after Attorney General Jeff Sessions rejected an appeal that would have let him retire this weekend.

This is a vindictive WH and one that will go down as one of the worst in our nation's history. The right wingers are cheering today, but Mueller's investigation continues on compiling evidence. Just more energy for the mid-terms and 2020 to rid our nation of bad actors.

So it is fine for Sessions to lie to Congress on more than one occasion, and have to be called back time and again. I'm thinking Sessions should have been gone before now, for that alone. Lots of politics being played to cover for the Russian Party candidate. Mueller, do your thing!

The good and decent people are ready for this trump travesty to be over. The trudge of justice is slow and deliberate. The endurance is costly, the end relief will be a rapture for the righteous; scorn, ridicule, and prison for the despicable, the deplorable, the mendacious, from master to minion. America will survive trump. trump will not survive America. He has every opportunity at his disposal to do good, yet, he choose evil. Why?

McCabe is a good start. Now, let's jail Comey, Mueller, Clapper...all corrupt to the core. I bet they all wish now they'd never run interference for Hillary.

Just more evidence in Mueller's obstruction of justice case.

Hahaha, You're F I R E D!! This is but the tip of the iceberg 'oh dimwitted comrades'. Wait until the Special Counsel FOR getting at the truth on FISA. You will then start hearing one by one when they all start going down - all the way to the long-legend mcdaddy and hims hairy legged she-male. #lockthemup.

"Late Friday, Trump tweeted:"

Yup, he did. He tweeted madly. Again. That's what he does. Trump doesn't look like a choirboy.

Never mind he was fired due to evidence uncovered by the Inspector General, not Sessions and not Trump. Don't let that stop you though fake news.

And we see the unhinged behavior of moz, typical of the Trump demographic who can’t separate fact from fiction. There is nothing illegal about Mueller’s investigations, yet he wants Mueller jailed. I guess he prefers a dictatorial state over a democracy. At least that’s what his comment leads us to believe.

Mozarky's posts are those of a Russian Troll. How much do they pay you MO?
