And Boom! More support for the inevitable Obstruction charges. As if on cue to prove that he is as small as he is petty:
Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI – A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!

The small and petty part: he had McCabe fired literally hours before he would have retired with a full pension.

And of course, Comrade Trump’s personal attorney John Dowd, told The Daily Beast,
“I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe’s boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier.”
The official reason that McCabe was fired is that when he talked to FBI inspectors he was not candid enough. That brings Jefferson Beauregard ‘Stonewall’ Sessions III into sharp relief (you know, not being candid enough during his confirmation hearing, i.e., stonewalling), and if it were not so sad, I’m sure Eiron the Goddess of Irony would be laughing.
All that said, McCabe is now not bound by any ethical norms and can say whatever he wants, and I am betting that the FBI is like most policing organizations and is going to close ranks. Comrade Stupid just started a war that he cannot win.
UPDATE 1: I should have included the full statement from McCabe, yes he’s off leash now:
JUST IN: Statement from Andrew McCabe: "I am being singled out and treated this way because of the role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath of the firing of James Comey.” https://t.co/t2XUf57p21 pic.twitter.com/Y6uv6gZ5pA
