hmmm

i see loopholes formed in order to meet timelines simply so they could vindictively try to keep his funds.

my point is that haste makes waste in many cases


What would be a waste is letting this scum keep his pension based on what OPR and the IG indicate he had done.

That's a completely different matter. That's not how leaders are supposed to make decisions. He committed fireable offenses. He was fired. Whether they are criminal or not is a separate issue. We'll get there.

What is indicated since the report hasn't been released yet? What do you know that the rest of us don't.
This was a political move.

Get informed.

Or do you think the Washington Post is in Trump's pocket now too?

Yeah - cry me a river - it was good enough to fire Flynn over lying to the FBI, but a senior FBI Deputy Director should get away with being less than candor under oath

theconversation.com...


On Dec. 1, Michael Flynn, former national security adviser to President Donald Trump, pleaded guilty to the charge of lying to the FBI about his contacts and conversations with Russians.




From OPs link


www.nytimes.com...


In a statement released late Friday, Mr. Sessions said that Mr. McCabe had shown a lack of candor under oath on multiple occasions.....

The inspector general’s report faults Mr. McCabe for his lack of candor in interviews with internal investigators. The report has not been released, but people briefed on it say the allegations revolve around disclosures to The Wall Street Journal, which reported in October 2016 a dispute between the F.B.I. and the Justice Department over how to proceed in an investigation into the Clinton family’s foundation.

When the smoke clears General Flynn will more than likely get his pardon. He got caught in a very big web, and full disclosure is coming soon. I think we will all be in disbelief.

only in the public eye did it get sat on for two days

they have known since it happened

declassification


Perhaps.

Had they "known" then it's still the right thing to do to wait a couple days, so you don't appear to have already made your decision beforehand.

Also, consider that maybe, JUST maybe the OPR waited this long to do it, to force Sessions to act fast. They release their recommendation a mere few days before he is due to retire? Leaving Sessions a couple of days to act.

One could say they acted intentionally.

A guy who lied while under oath more than once who as lead investigator charged another man with lying, deserves a little vindictiveness. It was members of his own agency that made the recomendation he be fired. The IG report will go into great detail of the wrongs he committed

You said it.

The river will change direction with all the back peddling. So many will have YEARS of scandals in their future that it will lead to suicides.

This is a scary awesome storm for sure.

HE'll need more than luck to get any sort of wrongful dismissal payout


www.nytimes.com...


Agents and lawyers expect the report by the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, to be highly critical of some F.B.I. actions in 2016, when the bureau was investigating both Hillary Clinton’s email use and the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia. The report is expected to address whether Mr. McCabe should have recused himself from the Clinton investigation because of his wife’s failed State Senate campaign, in which she accepted nearly a half-million dollars in contributions from the political organization of Terry McAuliffe, then the governor of Virginia, who is a longtime friend of Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

The irony.

Democrats wanted and initiated the IG investigation because they wanted to see if the FBI had any influence in Hillary losing the election.

And now the democrats are crying foul when the investigation they initiated didn't turn out the way they wanted.

This is priceless

Less than 24 hours before getting his pension.

Justice wins.

As a retired employee of the FBI...

The OPR puts out a quarterly email of cases recently adjudicated.

You wouldn't believe some of the things FBI employees do.

Some of them are down right comical.


But one thing always has remained consistent.... get caught doing something and then lie about it, your ass is fired.

Been that way for years.


For those that believe I was a janitor, all janitors get these:

Hey keep your first hand factual information out of here. Some people are trying to spin a false narrative.


Thanks for your service. I thought about pursuing a career with FBI after I got out of the Air Force, but I changed my mind after the snafu with Clinton. There should've been charges recommended in the email case. If the IG report leads to that glaringly political error being fixed, maybe I'll reconsider.

So you think the OPR said he should be fired for political reasons?

What are you basing this on besides wishful thinking?

So is it a lack of reading and research or simply willful ignorance?
