NEW: McCabe Lawsuit Against FBI and DOJ Assigned to Obama-Appointed Judge
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Thursday filed a lawsuit against the FBI and DOJ over his firing.
McCabe’s counsel is asking a court to find his termination was a “legal nullity” and to let him basically retire as he had planned.
“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.
The judge assigned to McCabe’s case is US District Court Judge Randolph Moss, an Obama appointee. Shocker.
Then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe in March of 2018 just hours before his 50th birthday when his full pension would have kicked in.
McCabe’s lawsuit against the Trump Administration comes just one day after former FBI counterintelligence chief Peter Strzok filed a similar suit over his firing.
Just like Peter Strzok, McCabe was involved in the attempted coup to remove President Trump from office.
According to text messages exchanged between Peter Strzok and his paramour FBI lawyer Lisa Page, the two discussed an “insurance policy” in McCabe’s office should Trump win the 2016 election.
Strzok’s lawsuit against the FBI was also assigned to a corrupt Obama judge. Amy Berman Jackson will be presiding over Strzok’s case against the FBI and DOJ.
