Why was Andrew McCabe fired? What we know now- truth will out

https://www.ajc.com/news/national/why-was-andrew-mccabe-fired-what-know-now/IYA33cIgoveefWOycjvcDP/

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe late Friday, hours before the former assistant director of the FBI was to retire.

Sessions said in a statement that McCabe was let go for “lacking candor under oath” in misleading investigators about the fact that he authorized a conversation between FBI employees and The Wall Street Journal.

While some are pointing to a vindictive strike at McCabe from President Donald Trump – McCabe took James Comey’s side following Comey’s firing last year – others say McCabe was forthcoming with information requested of him by the FBI’s inspector general.

Here is what we know about McCabe’s firing.

We know more now.

1. The Con on McCabe's firing

Trump tweeted that it was a “great day for Democracy” on Friday

About McCabe’s firing:

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!

Truth will out
Sister Maxine was right from day one.

2. 4 of 5 people that Comey told right away about Trump meeting are gone from FBI

There were 5 corroborating witnesses that Comey reported his concerns to after Trump meeting and they have all left under duress except David Bowdich who was promoted by Christopher Wray and fired Strzok. Bowdich seems to have never been involved in Russian criminal investigations while working for FBI while the others had many years of experience specializing in Russian matters.
