Trump Gloats About Firing Of “Choirboy” McCabe

The Hill reports:

President Trump celebrated the firing of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe late Friday on Twitter, calling it a “great day for Democracy.” Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe, who was set to retire on Sunday, for not being forthcoming with investigators during an inspector general review. Trump had repeatedly attacked McCabe, claiming that the former FBI official was biased against him and going after his wife’s connection to prominent Democrats.

CNN reports:

In a blistering statement Friday night, McCabe said his firing is part of a larger effort to discredit the FBI and the special counsel’s investigation. “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,” McCabe said. “It is part of this Administration’s ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the Special Counsel investigation, which continue to this day. Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the Special Counsel’s work.”
