Disgraced Andrew McCabe Fired From FBI For Lying, Hired By CNN As A Contributor

0 396

CNN has officially hired disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe who was fired for lying. Seems like a perfect fit for them. Let’s be honest… they hired him because he is virulently anti-Trump and that’s what they like over there. Truth doesn’t matter… just how much can you disparage Trump is the rule of the day for CNN. The criticism rolled in after this development from many notable figures.

McCabe was terminated by the FBI in March of 2018, just hours before he was set to retire with a pension. This was after a Department of Justice Inspector General report found that he “lacked candor, including under oath” over the revelation that he leaked to the media concerning President Trump and the Russian collusion hoax. Ethics and morality are not his strong suit but lying and an attempted coup sure are.

This is rich considering that last week CNN threw a conniption over Sarah Huckabee-Sanders being hired by Fox News. They also threw a fit over Sean Spicer joining the upcoming season of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” Neither Sanders or Spicer were fired or lied under oath. I guess CNN thought that they were one-upping the right on this. What they did was show how they lack any self-awareness whatsoever and that there is no bottom to how low they will go in regards to President Trump.

From The Daily Wire:

“McCabe’s hiring by CNN capped a tumultuous couple of weeks for the network after April Ryan’s bodyguard was charged with assaulting a journalist, Chris Cuomo threatened to throw a man down a flight of stairs for calling him “Fredo,” and a lawsuit was filed in court against Don Lemon over sexual assault allegations, for which there is an alleged witness.

“In response to McCabe’s hiring, numerous politicians, including President Donald Trump, and media figures weighed in on the controversy.

“Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) tweeted: “Andrew McCabe: fired for lying to the FBI, caught by the Inspector General for unauthorized media leaks, and — worst of all — one of the ring-leaders in spreading the debunked and disastrous “Russian collusion” conspiracy theory. His reward? A paid CNN contract. Comical.”

“Dana Loesch tweeted: “So those at CNN who were up in arms over Fox hiring Sanders and Spicer appearing on dancing with the stars are celebrating their network’s hiring of Andrew McCabe, who, unlike Spicer and Sanders, lied under oath and was referred for criminal charges by the IG.”

“President Trump tweeted: “Disgraceful!”

“Journalist Yashar Ali tweeted: “McCabe is still the subject of a federal criminal investigation. McCabe is suing the Justice Department and the FBI. Is CNN going to disclose that fact every time he is on air? I’m assuming they’re hiring him to talk about matters related to criminal justice and not the stock market.”

“The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway tweeted: “Andrew McCabe, one of the central figures of the “Russia collusion” hoax, who was fired from the FBI for lying about his leaks to the media, has been hired by CNN, one of the media outlets that did the most to perpetuate the damaging hoax.”

“Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tweeted: “It’s not every day @CNN can hire someone with “failed coup attempt” on their resume…”

“Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) tweeted: “McCabe->the FBI’s former Acting Director fired for leaking to the media & lying about it to the FBI, including under oath & “failing to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, & accountability”. Nothing to see here…let’s just be outraged Spicer is dancing on ABC.”

“Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) tweeted: “[email protected] teams up with Andrew McCabe to attack the President. The same McCabe who was out to stop President Trump and who the Inspector General found lied three times!”

“Donald Trump Jr. tweeted: “REMINDER: Andrew McCabe was fired by the FBI for leaking and getting caught lying about it. ANOTHER REMINDER: @CNN ceased being a ‘news organization’ a long time ago. They’re now a fully integrated anti-Trump propaganda network and they don’t even try hiding it anymore.”‘

McCabe joins his compatriot and fellow liar James Clapper at CNN. No shame at all here. Make no mistake, this is CNN’s way of paying McCabe back for leaking to them and spreading fake news.

Some of the misleading news that CNN has engaged in is listed by Breitbart:

  • Hispanic George Zimmerman: The White Racist Killer
  • Hands Up, Don’t Shoot
  • Trump Can’t Win
  • Brett Kavanaugh: Serial Rapist
  • The Kids from Covington High School
  • Trump Colluded with Russia

As John Nolte put it: “Few people hate Trump as much as Andrew McCabe does, and since CNN peddles in hate, hate-peddlers will always have a home at CNN.” Too true. Haters gonna hate and not report actual news.

Per The Federalist, serving as acting FBI director after James Comey was fired in May of 2017, McCabe was fired last year after lying to the bureau’s inspector general at least four times related to abuse of power at the agency while he was in charge. It was revealed that McCabe was involved in spying on the Trump campaign and in efforts to derail the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails while at the bureau. In February, McCabe admitted to discussing a coup with top national security officials to remove Trump from office. And he’s still not in prison.

After being let go from the FBI, McCabe went on a media tour to criticize Trump, repeatedly slandering the president at every opportunity and spreading even more lies and fake news. Now, he’ll be a talking head for a major news network. No wonder their ratings are tanking. This is CNN.
