Ex-FBI leader Andrew McCabe wins back pension in Justice Dept. settlement after he was fired under Trump

Unread post by uncledad »

The longtime FBI official approved the decision in May 2017 to investigate then-President Donald Trump over possible obstruction of justice and briefly led the bureau after Trump fired Director James B. Comey in 2017. But McCabe was fired hours before his retirement by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

In Thursday’s settlement, the Justice Department admitted no wrongdoing. But the Biden administration rescinded McCabe’s dismissal, restored his full pension and other benefits, and allowed him to officially retire and receive about $200,000 in missed payments.

When McCabe was fired, Trump called it a “great day for Democracy” and suggested he should be charged with a crime.

The Justice Department’s inspector general’s office did refer McCabe’s case to federal prosecutors for a 2016 media leak regarding FBI investigations of Hillary Clinton.

The criminal pursuit of McCabe ultimately ended in February 2020, when a grand jury did not return an indictment against him.

But that came only after a federal judge called on prosecutors either to charge McCabe or drop their long-running investigation, saying their indecision was continuing to undermine the credibility of the department.
