On Tuesday evening, news broke that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has decided to file a law suit that targets the FBI, DOJ and Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
The move conveniently comes just hours before the IG report is set to be released regarding the FBI’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. According to several analysts, the report is expected to implicate McCabe in wrongdoing along with other former members of the FBI, including former FBI Director James Comey.
In what looks to be a desperate move, McCabe’s lawyer is attempting to sue the FBI, DOJ and the IG for not turning over documents related to McCabe’s firing. As reported by NPR:
McCabe, who worked at the FBI in various roles for more than 20 years, was dismissed only hours before his planned retirement in March, for what the Justice Department called a “lack of candor.”
The firing stripped McCabe and his family of their health care benefits and delayed his ability to collect a federal pension, which he otherwise would have been able to draw on his 50th birthday.
McCabe’s lawyer, David Snyder, maintains in a new lawsuit that the dismissal violated federal law and departed from rules and policies. But he said authorities have refused to turn over materials related to McCabe’s disciplinary process. Video Below
In regards to his lawsuit, Snyder told NPR,”We don’t create secret law in this country.”
Snyder’s statement is ironic, considering the conspiracies McCabe is alleged to be part of and are expected to partially be revealed in the pending IG report.
Whether the lawsuit by McCabe’s attorney holds any weight is yet to be determined. However, the former FBI Deputy Director is currently losing his plea to get immunity in return for testimony about the Hillary Clinton scandal. You can read more about that by CLICKING HERE. Video Below
