    We all know that Trump has been having a go at him for over a year.

    But getting Sessions to fire him? ....

    Just before his 50th? ....

    Denying him a full pension!

    Petty, petty, PETTY,
    What a disgrace Trump is to his country.

    The government quirks of pension plans funded by taxpayer dollars and the accompanying golden retirement parachutes for senior government officials is another discussion.

    This does not constitute justification to defend petty and juvenile behaviour that should be beneath the decorum of the highest office.

    Enough said. 😴

    Retire with full benefits at age 49?

    Pretty sweet working for the government.

    Don't worry though, McCabe is now one of your folk heroes. I'm sure he will be worth millions after the book deals and such.

    Their salaries are reasonably modest compared to what people with similar education and qualifications make in the private sector. 21 years of outstanding service in the FBI seems something worthy of a generous pension.

    Only if you don't count the other metrics of salary, including benefits and other perks.
    Nearly without exception, those who take the path available in the cesspool of the Hill are not doing so for salary considerations.

    Interesting, so what other job would be comparable to someone with a similar education and qualifications?

    Moreover, what other hard working individuals do not deserve to retire at age 49 with a generous pension?

    Or are you just going ga, ga, over him cuz he is your folk hero now?

    From the New York Times

    "Mr. McCabe is accused in a yet-to-be-released internal report of failing to be forthcoming about a conversation he authorized between F.B.I. officials and a journalist.

    In a statement released late Friday, Mr. Sessions said that Mr. McCabe had shown a lack of candor under oath on multiple occasions.

    The F.B.I. expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity and accountability,” he said. “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.”
