In March, 2018, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will reach a career milestone. He’ll be eligible for full pension benefits. I hope I don’t sound petty when I say he should definitely be fired or at the very least demoted before then. It wouldn’t be in retribution for far-left leanings or the bias he potentially demonstrated while investigating Hillary Clinton last year. Doing so is all a matter of setting the FBI in the right direction now rather than waiting for him to retire.
Three months is a long time. We’ve had to suffer through incompetence when it comes to investigating government officials for long enough. Unlike many who are following the President’s lead in questioning the abilities of the FBI, I am limiting my ire to their political investigations. As we learned Friday, the FBI does a great job of protecting the people from many crimes, especially terrorism:
A man in Modesto, CA, was planning a terrorist attack at Pier 39 in San Francisco on Christmas day. The FBI has arrested Everitt Aaron Jameson. They found guns and fireworks in his home.
On social media, Jameson posted and liked pro-ISIS and pro-terrorism content. He told the FBI he was inspired by the New York City terrorist attack in October as well as the San Bernardino terrorst attack of 2015.
Getting rid of McCabe now is a matter of effectiveness. He’s clearly demonstrated he isn’t qualified for the position, has questionable motives, or both. Otherwise, there’s no reason Hillary Clinton would have been able to make it through a blatant act of criminal negligence in her handling of classified documents through her homegrown email server. The FBI knew this. They chose not to recommend charges. While most put the blame on former FBI Director James Comey, it’s come to light that McCabe and the agent in charge of the investigation played major roles in shifting Comey’s view. His original letter was much more harsh than the final product. McCabe’s fingerprints are all over Comey’s change of heart.
Thankfully, FBI Director Christopher Wray is already considering making a move;
FBI Director Christopher Wray is considering replacing McCabe with David Bowdich, the bureau’s third-ranking official, the New York Times reported, citing people familiar with the situation.
McCabe’s tenure has become entangled in recent years in politically charged controversies, including the investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton’s use of private email when she was secretary of State, and the ongoing criminal probe into whether Trump or his associates colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election campaign.
Trust is fading around the nation. We don’t trust government. We don’t trust media. We are losing trust in law enforcement. To start bringing some of that trust in, we cannot allow a corrupt FBI bureaucrat to bide his time until he can bail out with a full taxpayer-paid pension. He needs to go before March.
