Interesting Response Statement By McCabe Attorney Michael Bromwich…

Michael R Bromwich (Twitter HERE) is the attorney of record for fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.  Mr. Bromwich responded to the firing of his client with the following statement (Pdf HERE)

March 16, 2018
STATEMENT BY FORMER IG MICHAEL R. BROMWICH

I have been involved in Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) disciplinary matters since 1994. I have never before seen the type of rush to judgment – and rush to summary punishment – that we have witnessed in this case. The result of this deplorable rush to judgment is to terminate Mr. McCabe before his long-anticipated retirement and deny him of the full pension and retirement benefits he would have otherwise earned through his 21 years of devoted service to the FBI and this country. This is simply not the way such matters are generally handled in the DOJ or the FBI.

It is deeply disturbing.

This distortion of the process begins at the very top, with the President’s repeated offensive, drive-by Twitter attacks on Mr. McCabe. These attacks began in the summer of 2017 and accelerated after it was disclosed that Mr. McCabe would be a corroborating witness against the President. The attacks have continued to this day, with the President’s press secretary stating Thursday, in response to a question about Mr. McCabe’s fate, “that is a determination that we would leave to Attorney General Sessions, but we do think it is well-documented that he has had some very troubling behavior and by most accounts a bad actor.”

This vile and defamatory statement is fully consistent with the attacks on Mr. McCabe that have come from the White House since last summer. And it was quite clearly designed to put inappropriate pressure on the Attorney General to act accordingly. This intervention by the White House in the DOJ disciplinary process is unprecedented, deeply unfair, and dangerous.

The investigation described in the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) report was cleaved off from the larger investigation of which it was a part, its completion expedited, and the disciplinary process completed in a little over a week. Mr. McCabe and his counsel were given limited access to a draft of the OIG report late last month, did not see the final report and the evidence on which it is based until a week ago, and were receiving relevant exculpatory evidence as recently as two days ago.

We were given only four days to review a voluminous amount of relevant evidence, prepare a response, and make presentations to the Office of the Deputy Attorney General. With so much at stake, this process has fallen far short of what Mr. McCabe deserved.

This concerted effort to accelerate the process in order to beat the ticking clock of his scheduled retirement violates any sense of decency and basic principles of fairness. It should make all federal government employees, who continue to work in an Administration that insults, debases, and abuses them, shudder in the knowledge that they could be next.

Michael R. Bromwich served as the Inspector General for the Department of Justice from 1994 to 1999. He served as counsel to Andrew McCabe in this matter.

###

It is interesting to note the dates surrounding the preferred narrative as outlined by Andrew McCabe in his statement Friday evening, and this public letter from McCabe’s attorney, Michael Bromwich, also dated Friday March 16th, 2018.

Obviously, against the timing of a 10:00pm (EST) March 16th, 2018, public release from the DOJ Attorney General announcing McCabe’s termination of employment, in order for McCabe and Bromwich to have lengthy prepared statements ready for immediate release – they were well aware of the pending public release of the DOJ notice of termination.

Secondly, notice the timeline, and contacts, as described in the Bromwich letter:

[…] Mr. McCabe and his counsel were given limited access to a draft of the OIG report late last month, did not see the final report and the evidence on which it is based until a week ago.

[…] We were given only four days to review a voluminous amount of relevant evidence, prepare a response, and make presentations to the Office of the Deputy Attorney General.

It would appear toward the end of last month (February), McCabe and his attorney were given the summary outline of the OIG referral submitted to the Office of Professional Responsibility.  They had approximately three weeks to file a response.

Then a week ago, they received the finalized a copy of the OPR recommendation delivered to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.  They had four more days to respond to the Deputy AG.

Doesn’t sound rushed to me.

Mr. Michael Bromwich is also on record (Op Ed in WaPo) esupporting the Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz, January 14th, 2017, immediately after the OIG investigation was launched:

January 2017 – The announcement by the Justice Department’s inspector general that his office will look into FBI Director James B. Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s emails reopens painful questions about the 2016 election, but it is also welcome news. The country needs this — an objective, independent and thorough investigation of issues that have roiled the country for months and continue to stir heated debate.

The investigation will address allegations that Comey violated established Justice Department and FBI policies and procedures in his July 5, 2016, public announcement concerning the Hillary Clinton email investigation. And it will explore allegations that Comey’s Oct. 28 and Nov. 6 letters to Congress, which jolted the presidential election — and may have changed its outcome — were improper.

The impact of Comey’s actions can never be definitively known. But it is important, for the Justice Department and for the country, to obtain a detailed accounting of what happened and why; to assign blame where it is warranted; and to understand how similar situations can be prevented.

In addition to looking into the actions of the FBI director regarding the email investigation, the probe will look into whether the FBI’s deputy director should have recused himself from the investigation because of his wife’s political involvement;whether a high-ranking Justice Department official or others improperly disclosed non-public information to both the Clinton and Trump campaigns; and whether the timing of the FBI’s election eve Freedom of Information Act disclosures relating to Bill Clinton’s 2001 pardon of Marc Rich was based on inappropriate considerations.  (read more)

So attorney Michael Bromwich was for the OIG investigation (January 2017) until his client, Andrew McCabe, was found to have acted inappropriately/unlawfully as a result of the OIG investigation (March 2018) – and now he’s against it.

Gotcha.

So goes life in the swamp.

The thing about advocating for the Sword of Damocles, is never knowing when you might be under it.

Next up… James Comey:

      Hopefully, this is just the first of many such unnecessarily lengthy statements from defense attorneys for other FBI crooks.

      In this case, Sessions could be playing it just about right, except it seems to soft pedal lying and false testimony as “lack of candor”.

      Now, where is the highly anticipated “damning, explosive report of the OIG”? This better be the nuclear bomb against the Deep State. Lots and lots of ground to cover against scores of criminals much more important than McCabe!

      So it looks like McCabe did NOT flip after all, right Sundance?

      • I have never heard that McCabe flipped. Supposedly the so called Fab Five have flipped and have been cooperating with the IG investigation, that would be Strzoke, Page, Ohr, Ohr and Preistap. They are the low hanging fruit that can likely provide a path to prosecute Comey, Brennan, Lynch, Clapper, obama and Bill and Hil. Lets hope this is true.

        It appears to me that McCabe didn’t flip.

        It also follows that his ability to do so at a later time with a light sentence may be compromised as a result of Friday evening’s vindictive diatribe.

        He obstructed 2 separate high stakes investigations and he lied to his superiors under oath.

        Things are going to get much, much worse for him real soon.

        P Rabbit, perhaps this is actually how we will start seeing the OIG report – in individual chunks, as findings leading to certain actions on each specific criminal at a time are released. It could be a parade of statements about each bad actor, putting each into the public spotlight in turn as retirements and indictments are separately announced.

        Remember that the public has been starved for truth for what amounts to a lifeline. The entire report may then be released as a single document later – maybe just before midterms? – after everyone has had a good chance to digest each discrete portion.

        “lack of candor” is the correct way for lawyer speak at this stage. WE say, “McCabe is a dirty, filthy liar,” but until the charging documents are actually filed where they’ll use words like “perjury” then they stick to the diplomatic version.

        Peter Rabbit, I read that this term, “lack of candor” is deliberate because it includes OMISSIONS. If you state the person was lying, then you limit testimony to what was actually stated. This might explain how some of the officials called to testify under oath are extremely careful parsing their words. I am not an attorney, so perhaps those with more knowledge can comment.

      Obviously, McCabe didn’t flip and thought no one else did, LOL!!!

      He’s deep HRC Dem, hence nearly $500,000 to his wife’s campaign, and drank the Kool-aid. No way he’d ever flip or have a much worse fate.

      So yes good guys please continue to pursue the bad guys. As for me it’s more PT and range time today. Nonviolent conflict resolution (with the good guys winning) has failed too many times in the past.

      I remind everyone that government is the most murderous thing ever invented by mankind. A madman with a rifle can kill 50 or maybe a hundred. Governments can and do routinely kill millions or tens of millions. Sometimes it does this by killing enemies in wars, but most of the time the weapons are turned internally against the people ruled.

      This is indisputable historic fact. Why anyone would ever trust government to do anything is beyond me.

    “The FBI’s OPR reviewed the report and underlying documents and issued a disciplinary proposal recommending the dismissal of Mr. McCabe. Both the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor − including under oath − on MULTIPLE occasions.

    The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability. As the OPR proposal stated, ‘all FBI employees know that lacking candor under oath results in dismissal and that our integrity is our brand.”

Moreover, it doesn’t take an outright lie to be dismissed. In one case, the bureau fired an agent after he initially gave an ambiguous statement to investigators as to how many times he had picked up his daughter from daycare in an FBI vehicle. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled against the agent when he appealed, finding that “lack of candor is established by showing that the FBI agent did not ‘respond fully and truthfully’ to the questions he was asked.”

    Well, lawyer, that’s a reflection on your own detachment from reality.

    I can assure you that outside of government-land, there would be no review by an Investigator General, there would be no review by the OPC or whatever the internal group was called who actually made the recommendation to fire your client, there wouldn’t be any review of the review by the Attorney General of the United States… there wouldn’t be any of this sideshow circus in the private sector.

    He would just be FIRED.

    He could be fired for the way his hair was parted, or the way his breath stinks, or any other reason his employer sees fit.

    All you do is piss people off when you portray your client as a victim.

    Come to think of it, people who are seething with anger toward your client are EXACTLY the kind of people we want on the jury.

          It will be just like Adam Schiff’s “rebuttal” to the Republican letter ending the House Russian investigation. A dud. Same with Comey’s sanctimony book tour. Yeah, we’ll judge who is honorable and who isn’t. On that one we can “rush to judgment” right now.

      Exactly!
      I worked in Federal government for my career. I’ve never heard of or witnessed a termination where lengthy advance notices were given to the employee and his lawyers.

      The assumption is that Sessions and Horowitz are ensuring that the perps are getting sufficient rope length for their deserved justice. Close every loophole!

      Though, I would feel more satisfied if those perps got the same treatment as normal people.
      • 1) Called on the carpet.
      • 2) Ripped up one way, ripped down the other; vilified by everyone present.
      • 3) Terminated for cause immediately, or by the end of the week at the latest. Termination note is few, very few words in a couple of sentences, maximum.
      • 4) Most terminations for criminal actions, that I was aware of, the perps were escorted out the door in handcuffs. Termination notice was supplied immediately after criminal charges were filed.

      All of which clearly identify that McCabe expects treatment that McCabe would never allow a suspect to enjoy.

      When Sessions and Horowitz finally get around to it, McCabe fully deserves to be handcuffed and photographed with side and facing front postures over numbered plaques. Speaking of which, McCabe deserves a number like 0000003.
      Comey gets perp number 0000002.
      HRC should get 0000015, especially since she believes she’d deserve the primary number.

      And HRC shouldn’t have to worry about falling down stairs while under long term Federal care.

      A firing squad delivering final termination notices, after conviction for high treason, would be satisfying…

    No, Andrew McCabe Isn’t “Losing His Pension”
    Mar 17, 2018

    The reports that are flying across the news, Twitter, and Facebook are that McCabe was just two days short of retirement and that this move by Sessions will, as, for instance, Vox, reports, “cost him his federal pension.”
    […]

    Which all gives the impression of a veteran, elderly federal official being cheated out of his pension accruals due to a vindictive Trump administration. But this didn’t pass the sniff test. Pensions — public as well as private — are required to meet certain vesting requirements, and, in fact, the FERS (Federal Employees Retirement System) benefits vest at 5 years, meaning that benefit accruals cannot be taken away.

    In fact, McCabe is all of 49 years old, likely 50 by the time readers see this, and what he lost out on was, as CNN much more calmly recounts, the ability to take his benefits at age 50, rather than somewhere between age 57 and age 62, and he lost his eligibility to a special top-up in benefit formula. These are, admittedly, tangible financial losses, but it is grossly misleading that various news outlets are giving the general public the impression that he has lost his pension entirely.
    […]

    UPDATE: On Saturday evening, the Washington Post reported that

    Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) announced Saturday afternoon that he has offered McCabe a job to work on election security in his office, “so that he can reach the needed length of service” to retire.

    According to the Post’s experts, McCabe “would need to just go to work with the federal government for another day or so in any job he pleases,” although “it would probably look more ethical if McCabe worked for at least a pay period rather than just one day.” And, due to the nature of federal pensions and their portability from one position to another, this sounds credible — though at the same time, well, I’m from Illinois, a state with a long list of examples of pension spiking, ghost employees, and other ways that public officials have manipulated public pensions, so it doesn’t sit right with me.

      There are a number of issues that those news sources failed to cover.

      A) FERS (Federal Employee Retirement System) is based on three parts; 1) a pension based on years of service, 2) Social Security, 3) TSP Thrift savings plan.

      Yes, terminations for cause can strip an employee of their service years pension calculation.

      Social Security can not be stripped from an employee.
      Yes, a supposed “entitlement” is a cornerstone for Federal employee retirements; i.e. SS is not an entitlement, it is an earned retirement.

      TSP does have a “matching funds” clause where the Feds match payments into the savings plan, based on a calculation. Those savings can not be stripped from an employee, but operate as an IRA for retirement. i.e., untouchable till age requirement is met.

      B) McCabe would have been a SES level Federal Employee; SES (Senior Executive Service). Actually, a number of Federal departments and agencies have their own unique versions of “Executive Service” modeled from the SES; e.g. The Post Office’s executive service is called the “Postal Career Executive Service” (PCES).

      1) There is not any method identified for a ‘terminated for cause’ SES employee to transfer to a non-SES Federal position.

      Placement: Adverse action removal of an SES member is removal from the civil service.
      There is no authority for an agency to move the appointee directly from the SES to a nonSES
      position. However, following the action removing the appointee from the Federal
      service, an agency may subsequently as a separate action appoint the individual to a
      position outside the SES for which eligible.”

      2) Assigning SES ex-employees to any position requires OPM (Office of Personnel Management) approval. OPM approving rehiring/assigning an employee terminated for cause is unlikely, and likely would identify another employee deserving investigation.

      3) The SES ex-employee must be qualified for the position!! In all cases where candidates do not apply for the position, qualify is based on whether they ever performed the exact tasks and duties the new position requires.

      4) SES positions themselves are not available for any congressman or senator to assign people to!

      5) Employees successfully hired back into lower grade positions are immediately leveled at that position. meaning that any SES pension calculation would revert to the basic FERS calculation.

      The whole “protect McCabe” Federal job abuse concept highlights someone who wilfully subverts Federal justice and employment regulations.
      Initiate an investigation into Congressman Pocan’s office immediately!

    ADVERSE ACTIONS
    Removal
    Career appointees
    If a career executive is removed during the probationary period for performance reasons, he/she is entitled to placement in a GS-15 position with saved pay (unless appointed to the SES from outside Government or from a noncareer-type appointment). After the probationary period, the executive must be placed in another position within the SES or removed from the SES for one unsatisfactory rating. An executive must be removed from the SES for two unsatisfactory ratings in 5 years, or for two less than fully successful ratings in 3 years. The executive may request an informal hearing before MSPB and is entitled to placement in a GS-15 position with retained pay. No career executive can be removed for performance reasons during 120 days after appointment of a new agency head or new noncareer supervisor with removal authority, except removals based on a rating(s) prior to appointment.

    Reduction-in-force (RIF) retention determinations are based primarily on performance. The agency must place an executive who has completed a probationary period in any SES vacancy for which he/she is qualified. If no vacancy exists, OPM has 45 days to try to place the executive elsewhere in the Government. If the executive cannot be placed in the SES, he/she is entitled to placement in the agency at a GS-15 position with saved pay, and has appeal rights to MSPB on agency compliance with competitive RIF procedures.

    In lieu of placement in a GS-15 position, the executive may elect discontinued service retirement with 25 years service or 20 years of service at age 50.

    Disciplinary removal procedures and rights are similar to those for competitive service employees, except that the standard for action is “misconduct, neglect of duty, malfeasance, or failure to accept a directed reassignment or to accompany a position in a transfer of function.” The executive must receive 30 days notice of a proposed removal, has the right to reply, and may appeal to MSPB, but has no placement right to a GS-15 position.

    Noncareer and limited appointees
    Removal is at the discretion of the agency head. The law does not specify procedural requirements for noncareer, most limited term appointees, limited emergency appointees, and reemployed annuitants. Thus, such appointees may be removed under established agency procedures. Appointees under these circumstances do not have appeal rights to MSPB. Some executives on limited term appointments have placement rights.

    Playing the victim and the victim’s advocate this way is tiresome and boring.
    McCabe lied. Got his arrogant ass fired.
    Enough!
    Bye!

      Don’t forget—he was “forced” into early retirement by Wray a while back for something Wray saw in classified information. He was using leave and sick time to try to make it to his retirement day. So this was not “fast”.

      Q implied McCabe was the “tip of the spear” in the attempt to bring P45 down via special counsel and “Russia”.

    Good news here: “did not see the final report and the evidence on which it is based until a week ago”. I read this as saying the OIG report we are waiting for is now complete!! Hopefully we will get to see that report this week!!!

      I wonder how long it will be? BHO had 8 years of corruption for the IG to document. As mentioned previously, he was limited in his scope of what he could investigate.

    Even McCabe’s lawyer doesn’t say McCabe is innocent, just that it was rushed and Trump is mean. Meanwhile this wasn’t rushed at all; it took much much longer than we thought it would!

    FTA “I suppose neither Comey nor McCabe were aware that the FBI has a well staffed public affairs office, making leaks to reporters seem unnecessary unless one is trying to manipulate news without being known as the source. In any event, the charge is that he lied multiple times about having directed his public affairs officer to leak.”

    The fact that the FBI lovebirds have not been fired leads me to agree with Clarice that they are talking.

    The final lines in Clarice´s article tells all that this all happened before the election of Donald Trump and the appointment of his staff. This is a cabal of dirty cops and the corruption of a law enforcement agency

      Partisan political opportunists who have no scruples in unleashing Stasi tactics to eliminate
      opposition, insuring statist dominance.

      They deserve their fates…
