In a letter which was released Wednesay, McCabe did his best to keep the morale up at the agency after the news hit of Comey’s departure.
Perhaps McCabe’s partners-in-crime such as Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Baker and others who hate Trump were scared Comey’s firing would lead to their sins being exposed.
The Washington Examiner reported:
“First, thank you. Thank you for continuing to do the great work of this organization. […] [d]espite the fact that we are still trying to adjust to an FBI without Director Comey,” McCabe wrote.
President Trump fired Comey on May 9th because of the way he completely botched Hillary Clinton’s criminal email investigation.
Andrew McCabe is also in hot water. The Deputy Director of the FBI was involved in a conversation with Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page wherein they discussed an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency during the 2016 election.
Just before Christmas, it was revealed Andrew McCabe would be retiring in March of 2017, just in time to collect his pension and benefits.
President Trump blasted Andrew McCabe for his overt corruption and accused him of racing the clock to retire with full benefits with only 90 days to go.
The FBI recently ruled Andrew McCabe had no conflicts of interest in the Hillary Clinton email investigation despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
