Sessions Considering Firing FBI's McCabe Days Before Retirement, Jeopardizing His Pension

FBI disciplinary office recommends firing ex-deputy director Andrew McCabe days before his retirement

An internal investigation concluded Mr McCabe misled investigators who were looking into his decision to let FBI officials speak to the media about a probe into the Clinton Foundation, leading the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility to recommend Attorney General Jeff Sessions fire Mr McCabe, according to CNN and the New York Times.

The inspector general has since last January been investigating the FBI and Justice Department's handling of the politically charged probe into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, which is separate from the foundation probe.

No announcement is imminent, Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said in a statement.

McCabe, a frequent target of President Donald Trump's criticism even before the election, has been on leave from the Federal Bureau of Investigation since stepping down in January from his deputy director position.

President Trump has frequently slammed McCabe, seeing him as biased against his administration and in the tank for Hillary Clinton during the campaign.

A source at the time told Fox News that McCabe is taking "terminal leave" - effectively taking vacation until he reaches his planned retirement in a matter of weeks.

While Trump has suggested that McCabe was a Clinton supporter, the justification for firing him ― ironically ― has to do with a decision he made that was damaging to Clinton and Obama appointees in the Justice Department. The FBI isn't supposed to disclose information about ongoing criminal investigations, but the October 30, 2016, story went into an extraordinary level of detail about turf wars between the FBI and the Justice Department over the handling of the Clinton Foundation probe. The chat with then-Wall Street Journal reporter Devlin Barrett was evidently meant to push back on the suggestion that McCabe was in Clinton's pocket.

McCabe's tenure became entangled in politically charged controversies, including the investigation into Clinton's private email and the continuing criminal probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The details of why the inspector general viewed Mr. McCabe as not forthcoming are not clear.

Through a representative, McCabe declined to comment. The inspector general's report has not been released but is expected out soon.
