The arrogance and ignorance of these top-level fired FBI guys is breathtaking.
Apparently guilty of multiple felonies for which the Department of Justice Inspector General has recommended criminal charges, Andrew McCabe has decided it is time to sue President Trump and all those involved for his firing, even though nearly every source, including those from the left, have said it was justified. What’s more, President Trump had nary a thing to do with it. Jeff Sessions fired McCabe and rightly so.
McCabe’s attorney is making the argument that McCabe never lied. Rather, he has a really crappy memory: “Nobody’s memory is perfect, people are fallible,” argued Michael Bromwich, McCabe’s attorney, who is the likely beneficiary of the $500,000+ GoFundMe legal fund McCabe is receiving.
Alrighty then, I think I will go rob a bank in the morning, and when questioned by the police, I’ll lie about it. Then, when I am charged and go before the judge, I’ll lie again, denying under oath that I am the robber until the prosecutor shows the judge a video of me sticking a pistol in the teller’s face, at which point I will simply declare, “Oh, yeah, I guess it WAS me that robbed that bank. I forgot it was me. I thought it was someone else.” After all, “nobody’s memory is perfect, people are fallible.” Right?
From New York Post
Ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe plans to file lawsuits for defamation, wrongful termination and other claims, his lawyer said Friday.
Attorney Michael Bromwich said McCabe’s legal team was still working out when they plan to file the suits, and that they “want these to be solid. We’ll file when we’re ready,” Axios reported.
Bromwich accused McCabe’s opponents, including President Trump, of “continuing slander,” although he did not specify whom the suits would target.
“We’ve never seen anything like this before. It does damage not only to Andy McCabe individually but also to the FBI as an institution,” he said.
Bromwich called McCabe “upset and disappointed” over critical remarks by ex-FBI Director James Comey, who has suggested on his book tour that McCabe has to face the music if he is found guilty of lying to other FBI officials about a leak to the press.
“Nobody’s memory is perfect, people are fallible,” Bromwich said when asked about the different versions of events McCabe and Comey have offered about their tenure together at the bureau.
But, he added, “McCabe has a clear recollection, Comey does not.”
Anyway, here’s where McCabe fires shots at Comey and warns him to be careful which side he chooses:
“We are not for a moment suggesting that Jim Comey is making things up or lying about Andrew McCabe,” Bromwich said. “But nobody’s memory is perfect. People are fallible.”

…. sticking a pistol in the teller's face, at which point I will simply declare, "Oh, yeah, I guess it WAS me that robbed that bank. I forgot it was me. I thought it was someone else." After all, "nobody’s memory is perfect, people are fallible." Right?

The inspector general’s office at the Justice Department sent a criminal referral to federal prosecutors in DC, recommending that McCabe be prosecuted for lying to the FBI.
McCabe denied that he lied, and his lawyer predicted he would not be prosecuted despite the referral.
