Trump, who never had to work for his money withheld a guy’s pension after his decades of service to America. Seriously?
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has sued the Trump administration for what he calls his “unlawful” termination, arguing that his firing last year was the result of improper political interference by the president.
“It was Trump’s unconstitutional plan and scheme to discredit and remove DOJ and FBI employees who were deemed to be his partisan opponents because they were not politically loyal to him,” the complaint alleges.
Then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions dismissed McCabe in March 2018, only hours before his 50th birthday, when his full law enforcement pension would have vested. McCabe’s filing argues that he is “entitled to his full law enforcement pension and all other benefits, privileges, and rights currently being withheld.”
In explaining the firing in April 2018, the Justice Department cited a “lack of candor” in McCabe’s interviews with investigators looking into a 2016 media leak in the waning weeks of the presidential campaign.
