BREAKING: Sessions Fires McCabe Before He Retires. Here’s Both Of Their Statements.

By  Ryan Saavedra

Late on Friday, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired from his role just hours before he was eligible to receive a government pension after Attorney General Jeff Sessions rejected an appeal that would have allowed McCabe to retire this weekend.

In a statement, Sessions indicated that McCabe had lacked candor under oath on multiple occasions, saying “The F.B.I. expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability. I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.”

McCabe instantly claimed that the decision to fire him was a deliberate act by the Trump administration to “undermine the special counsel’s investigation in which he is a potential witness,” The New York Times reported.

In an interview following his firing, McCabe said, “The idea that I was dishonest is just wrong. … This is part of an effort to discredit me as a witness.”

This is a breaking news story, check back for updates.
