A woman scorned has nothing Donald J. Trump. Former FBI Director James Comey threw a huge wrench into Secretary Hillary Clinton’s race against Trump. When he would not swear fealty to King Trump, POTUS had his bodyguard pink slip him. Comey found out when he was delivering a speech to a group of his employees in California. True.
The news scrolled across the TV screen behind him. The president was enraged that the then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe let Comey take the company jet back to D.C. Perhaps, he wanted Comey to walk.
Then, hours before McCabe was set to retire and draw his retirement benefits after a long FBI career, Trump had him fired, too. McCabe sued the Department of Justice (DOJ) alleging that being fired was actually “retaliation” by Donald Trump:
”Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe says in a new lawsuit that Director Chris Wray wouldn’t tell him why he was demoted from that job. He says “Wray and (then-Attorney General Jeff) Sessions had agreed not to discuss the specific reason” with him.’
At the president’s behest, Attorney General Bill Barr tried to get McCabe’s lawsuit dismissed in court, but no luck. The judge just ruled on Thursday that “the wrongful termination suit will move forward:”
‘It was Trump’s unconstitutional plan and scheme to discredit and remove DOJ and FBI employees who were deemed to be his partisan opponents because they were not politically loyal to him.’
Congress Reporter for The POLITICO Kyle Cheney tweeted the news a “federal judge *denied* Barr’s “political retaliation:”
‘JUST IN: A federal judge has *denied* AG Barr’s effort to dismiss Andrew McCABE’s lawsuit alleging he was fired as an act of political retaliation. The case now moves to discovery.’
Earlier, Cheney tweeted:
‘McCabe claims that Trump’s tweets and statements influenced DOJ’s decision to fire him. The judge, Randy Moss, says McCabe has a right to discovery to test that theory.’
