CNN Hires Former FBI Official Andrew McCabe Fired For Leaking To Media

Excerpt:

Adrew McCabe, the former FBI deputy director fired for leaking to the media and who has become an antagonist of President Trump, will join CNN.

McCabe has spent the past year defending his actions at the FBI, writing a book, and pushing for Trump to be removed from office.

He filed suit in federal court earlier in August accusing Trump of causing his subordinates at the Justice Department to participate in an “unconstitutional plan and scheme” to have him fired. McCabe was fired the same day he planned to retire.

The department's Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a 39-page report in February 2018 detailing multiple instances where McCabe “lacked candor” with then-FBI Director James Comey and with investigators related to him greenlighting the disclosure to the media of sensitive information related to the FBI’s investigation into matters related to Hillary Clinton.

Comey says that he did not give McCabe permission to leak to the media. Sessions fired McCabe the next month, stating that McCabe “made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.”

At some point CNN, MSNBC, and others need to re-file with the IRS as §527 "Political Organizations" rather than as news corporations.

Ain't that the truth, that time is well past. 90 percent of the media is just a propaganda arm of the Democrat party. Goebbels would be proud. Our own MiniTrue.

I think he was hired because he knows where the bodies are buried at CNN. (Or has incriminating photos of someone.) :whistling:

McCabe is telegraphing sheer arrogance. He believes that he is untouchable. He's daring Trump to go after him. This won't end like he and CNN think it will.

Not surprised, but it will be interesting to see if he's asked about the reports coming out about his less than honorable actions while in his former position...
