Reading through Roger Kimball’s great essay at American Greatness the other day, “The McCabe Piece is Just an Appetizer,” I came to this part:
McCabe leaked information about an investigation to a Wall Street Journal reporter, lied about leaking in casual conversations with superiors as well as under oath. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, digesting a preliminary report on McCabe’s conduct, fired him in March 2018 (not even a month ago, but it seems like forever).
The Left got its collective nappy in a twist over that, claiming that it somehow impeded Mueller’s boundless fishing expedition and also that it was callous to Andrew McCabe because he was fired just a day before he was entitled to his full pension. (He did not, by the way, “lose his pension” as some reported, merely a final escalator, and it is not even clear that that will survive litigation.)
But it wasn’t just the Left who screamed that Trump was a big meanie for firing McCabe. Remember this?
Sen. @MarcoRubio on McCabe firing: “I don't like the way it happened. He should've been allowed to finish through the weekend… 48 hours to go before retirement I would've certainly done it differently.” #MTP
