Andrew McCabe was fired yesterday, one day before he was set to retire from the FBI. By all accounts his career there was extraordinary. So why was he fired? And just one day short of being able to retire? If nothing else, this is simply mean. And meanness for its own sake.
The only way this makes any sense is that Trump and Sessions are not happy that everyone isn’t more loyal to them personally. Never mind that everyone’s oath is to the constitution, not the president nor the attorney general.
Its main intent is probably to scare everyone left that they had better toe the Trump/Sessions line or they will be punished just like McCabe was. Regardless of the law and regardless of any evidence. Any Mafiosi would be proud. And the silence from the Republican congress is deafening.
