Andrew McCabe Sues Justice Department and Inspector General Over Firing…

In what can only be seen as a dubious political stunt, Andrew McCabe, through his attorney Michael Bromwich, is suing the DOJ and Inspector General for documents relating to his firing.   Apparently the 39-page IG report, documenting the reasoning, along with the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) isn’t enough for McCabe.

WASHINGTON DC – Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the FBI, the Justice Department and its inspector general, alleging the Trump administration violated procedures when it fired him in March just hours before his retirement.

The Justice Department cited “lack of candor” for dismissing Mr. McCabe, who had worked at the FBI for more than two decades. The firing upended Mr. McCabe’s ability to collect his benefits and pension.

In the 36-page complaint filed in federal court in Washington, D.C. Tuesday, his attorneys argue the Justice Department is refusing to hand over documents relating to the policies and procedures for Mr. McCabe’s dismissal because it fears further litigation.

“We don’t create or adjudicate under secret law or procedure,” David Snyder, a lawyer for Mr. McCabe, told The Associated Press.

The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.  (read more)

Here’s the reason McCabe was fired:

              We have a neighbor who was abused by Daddy. She is on welfare. She has daughters and now lets Daddy abuse her daughters. Other family members have tried to get the children away from her but ‘Child Services’ and a judge ordered the kids back into her ‘care.’ So now WE Tax payers pay this woman to pimp her daughters to her father.

              She doesn’t give a hoot about the daughters who spend the summer with the other family members, she only wants them during the school year so she can say they live with her and can collect $$$ from the state. She even reported one daughter as a ‘runaway’ (at the tail end of summer vacation of course) when she knew darn well where the girl was living!!!

              Why none of the family have made facts clear to that dirty old man is beyond me. If it was my niece or nephew, he would be minus his family jewels. Hubby and I have had plenty of experience in turning billy goats into wethers.

            @David: Since January 2017 FBI raids across the country arrested nearly 9,500 pedos and child sex traffickers and rescuing around 1,200 children that were in the pipeline to be trafficked. The young child rescued was 2 months old and her sister 5 years old. Both of these children/victims were in cages.
            Interpol is also working with the FBI and other law enforcement worldwide rounding up pedos and child sex trafficker. These raids worldwide are carried out in tandem with raids here in this country. Interpol is co-operating.

            Our military men and women including SEALS rescued 3,000 children alone that were in the pipeline to be trafficked into the middle east.
            These raids were carried out after president Trump met with the new Saudi prince. It also took place after the mass arrests of the millionaire and billionaire princes including Alwaleed – the kingmaker in the US with the Clinton foundation, McCain foundation aka McCain institute, Hussein and his gang and the DNC.

            The worldwide ops are continuing!

      It’s his only possible leverage–he knows DOJ doesn’t need his testimony or insights, b/c his demand for immunity was rejected. Funny thing, he’s opening up a real Pandora’s box, since he can now be deposed in a context in which he can’t claim 5th A and he’s subject to broad, civil discovery that might not have been available in a criminal case. It’s either a gross violation of the first law of holes (when in one, stop digging) or a giant, desperate and probably futile hail mary to try to maneuver for some kind of semi-favorable resolution of all issues. Pound sand, seditionist Andy, pound sand. I hope that’s Sessions’ and VSSPGPDJT’s response.

        A couple of random/related thoughts on McCabe:
        I said that when the Page/Strzok texts were delivered to Mueller, that McCabe should have bargained for a deal right then. First rule is, you first loss is your best loss. Every loss after that is more painful. Not that he was guaranteed a plea deal even then, but at that point evidence was still being gathered and some prosecutor might have been happy to have his testimony.
        But as time went by, the evidence was gathered and corroborated, and “we don’t need you any more, Andy” was the reply. BTW, imagine his day when he was told that, and had to tell his wife he was doomed.
        Remember that he threatened to sue Trump for wrongful termination ‘way back when? Of course, this current move might be his defense team’s idea of a response after the failed plea request to Grassley. But, does anybody think that this recent gambit is a decoy, that he has to appear to be belligerent so that he doesn’t become Arkancided?
        What would you do, if your choice was Arkancide or Gitmo? Maybe do something irrational.

Sessions deserves to be fired immediately but I understand politically why Trump hasn’t done so. The Sessions DOJ is completely out of control. And now Rosenstein is requesting an investigation into the Republican staffers. This is insane. Nunes needs to get together with Trump and get everything released pronto. Enough of this bs.

      Rosenstein threatened that if he were impeached he would subpoena congress for documents to defend himself. It’s a thinly veiled threat and indicates a Rosenstein knows where there’s dirt in congress to get them to back off. Threatening a house investigation might be a tactic for force congressmen like Nunes to recuse while the investigation is ongoing.

      At this point I don’t see any way out of this mess other than bring it all out into the sunlight. Congress needs to be able to do their oversight and obviously have no recourse to reign in the DOJ and FBI. Maybe PTrump will need to execute an executive order to force the material to be released.

        You want a pitbull for AG? Weren’t we just complaining about a partisan IRS boss attacking TEA Party activists? Weren’t we stunned by corrupt partisan hacks at DoJ running guns in fast and furious, not to mention kidnapping a Cuban refugree, and slaughtering citizens at Ruby Ridge and Waco and then covering it up? And here I thought we actually wanted to restore “Justice” at DoJ. Silly me.

        Oh, about that the perfect chance to imprison Hillary …. Sounds like you are attacking President-Elect Trump …

        Nov 22, 2016 :: President-Elect Donald J. Trump said on Tuesday that he had no intention of pressing for an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server or the financial operations of her family’s … “She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways, and I am not looking to hurt them at all.” … President-elect Donald Trump and his transition team signaled Tuesday that his administration will not pursue further investigations of Hillary Clinton, backing off a vow on the campaign trail to appoint a special counsel to probe his Democratic rival’s secret email setup as secretary of state and suspected pay-to-play deals involving her family’s foundation. But the president-elect struck a very different tone Tuesday, arguing that Mrs. Clinton had suffered enough and the country needed to heal. “I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with the New York Times. “She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways.” He also said the Clinton Foundation has done “good work.”

        This statement was 3 days after Trump announced Sessions as Attorney General nominee. Do you think that is a coincidence? That there is no strategy whatsoever between them? At a minimum it *is* Trump setting the broad policy goals. And that goal was not what you want and so you scapegoat Sessions instead. Write to the President and complain. Need the address?

            The first sentence is true. His announcement of stand-down against Hillary Emails and the Foundation *was* a veiled message to call off the incessant whining and burgeoning Russia Hoax which was still in its infancy. Ironically and what should be embarrassing to you, you fail to see you just contradicted your continuing “belief” that Trump always means exactly what he says. Do you see that you just proved yourself wrong? Probably not. You literally just admitted Trump was not completely sincere in his she suffered enough schtick and instead was negotiating. And that of course segues into an immediate contradiction …

            I take Trump at his word that he would not have hired Sessions if Sessions had at the outset said he would recuse.

            I guess you can be the arbiter of which Trump tweets and statements are true or false ( aka negotiation )? ~sigh~ I spent two years explaining to anti-Trump lunatics how we NYC’ers talk, and how a transcription will never be accurate because there is no context and also because we say lots of stuff that can never be taken literally. All to no avail. A shame to see Trump “supporters” demonstrate the identical incapacity for understanding simple but flexible communication.

            Besides, y’all can’t ever be bothered to consider the actual timeline. The concept of recusal would never have been mentioned in the first week after the election when Sessions was hired. If anything, Trump would have demanded Sessions follow the ethics and rules to the letter, and any demand from Trump to do something untoward or unethical would have resulted in Sessions declining the job. But go ahead and give me your idea of what was discussed at that November Trump Tower meeting between the two of them. How do you imagine that discussion went?

            And while you’re at it, how do you imagine the January meeting would have went if it had occurred to discuss the possible recusal mentioned in the hearing? I want to see you script out exactly what you think Trump would have said that would *not* be considered obstruction of justice. [ this thought exercise should but likely won’t steer you into the idea that Sessions may have “not discussed” recusal for the simple reason that it would be exposing the President-Elect to an huge opportunity to obstruct justice. They likely both knew of the internal investigations by that point, and Sessions anticipated the future questioning of the President trying to tamper with the investigations. That’s Session’s job right there in a nutshell – *not* harming the government and the President ]

            Sessions is a Trojan Horse and him and his recusal were required for the ‘Insurance Policy’ to work. Without him, and his recusal there would be no SC + 13 angry Dhimmi Rats. & who recommended Rosenstein? Find that person and you have the other part of the who is a mole…

            Derpity derp derp derp. I have no doubt you people actually believe this despite its absolutely incredible naiveté. “If not for Sessions recusal, no special counsel!” Utterly ludicrous. The correct answer is there would be a special counsel or independent prosecutor from a 3-judge panel appointed right about now, over a year later after Trump and Sessions were hammered mercilessly 24/7/365 in the Watergate 2.0 extravaganza. It had already started and was short-circuited by Sessions. But as you live and die by Trump tweets without further guidance beyond those few words, you are left hanging in the wind with how to process any alternative. God gave you your own brain, use it. Then go google Watergate and learn of the conspiracy that removed a President so overwhelmingly re-elected he received 61% of the popular and 521 electoral votes and was removed in just 19 months. That is how dangerous the enemy is and is the severe threat that Sessions protected him from by taking the administration right out of the Russia Hoax investigation.

            However, none of this will penetrate your Sessions derangement regardless of how clearly it is spelled out.

          Fake Judge Jeanine Pirro ( who I regret voting for for AG up here ), who put on that ridiculous clown show by viciously convicting Roy Moore on mere allegations ( not even charges! ) and a faked yearbook? And then when the thing was debunked uttered not a single word of correction or contrition? That fake Judge?

          Imagine your son being dragged in front of her in court. Maybe some ex-girlfriend goes after him for whatever PC SJW cause du jour she learned about in her feminist awareness class? It doesn’t matter how much she likes Trump. A lunatic like Pirro should never be allowed anywhere near a courtroom again ( well, except to answer her speeding tickets and other stuff ).

      Did you see Jordan or Meadows ( I forget which ) say to Laura that the alleged threat is a violation of “separation of powers” from a co-equal branch while simultaneously and with a perfectly straight face demanding documents from DoJ, a separate branch? [ DoJ investigates everybody, citizens, foreigners, themselves, Congress, the President, there is no separation of powers shield! ]

      Did you see Hannity live that night that the Wolfe indictment broke when he and Sara Carter were smack in the middle of a derpfest about the DoJ withholding documents from ‘Constitutional Oversight’ forced to announce the news that a partisan Congressional leaker was nailed and reporters metadata was subpoenaed and then with a straight face talk about the First Amendment? [ you would think that the plugged leak from Congressional staffers would ring a bell in his head, but of course it didn’t! ]. I don’t know what Rosenstein did or didn’t do, but I can sure imagine a good reason to shake up babbling Congress critters. There are two sides to this documents issue and you are getting barely 1/2 of the picture from the media. Here are some facts they won’t talk about …

      FACT: there is no such thing as Constitutional Oversight, go look for it and cite it if you believe Hannity’s incessant babbling. Yes, there are oversight committees, but these are assumed powers historically used to harass (R) Administrations by (D) Congresses. Hannity knows this from the Reagan years but chooses to derp anyway. And there is a whole lotta derping going on, including from some very good Congressman ( Nunes, Jordan, Meadows, DeSantis, Gaetz ) and also from media figures and talking heads like Hannity, Sara Carter, Jarrett, Dobbs and Gaslight Pundit. And I hope it dawns on some of the knee jerkers here to learn to look for actual evidence once in a while. You should also learn to question sources like Hannity when he derps, i.e., repeats word salad full of fakenews and errors. [ Where were these derpers when Holder and Lynch devastated DoJ? They suddenly all find their manhood when it is Sessions and Trump! ]

      There are countless leaks being investigated. Trump’s oval office phone calls were leaked. There are 20+ active investigations at DoJ and you can bet many of them overlap and share evidence. A huge number of leaks concern anonymous Congressional staffers, the people who actually read all these documents that they demand from the Executive Branch. Nunes was asked by Bream if they had plugged the leaks on his committee ( Schiff or Swalwell or staffers probably ) and he did not answer. Would you hand 1.2 million documents to them? What if those documents harm the leak investigations? This could be an elaborate form of discovery being perpetrated by leftists on Congressional staff to scuttle the leak investigations. Or maybe not, we just don’t know. But never take derping Congress people up for re-election at their word. That is a given.

      Exactly who needs 1.2 million documents anyway? What’s in them? How do they even know how many they need? BTW, Nunes said they had received 1/4 of them ( what’s that, 300,000!? ) and that his staff had not read them yet! WTF? Remember how we laughed at Comey for saying they had already read the 650,000 emails on Weiner’s laptop in the few days before the election? I could do the math for you and show how it is impossible to read 1.2 million documents but even so, something is awfully grandstanding about this whole thing, don’t ya think? This whole thing could be solved if competent interviewers would nail down Nunes or the others with specific questions, but that’s a dream since they are all incompetent.

      A simple question to the derpers is this: How would you like Maxine Waters to demand 1.2 million documents from Wilbur Ross or Steve Mnuchin or Ryan Zinke? Try to imagine the trouble her staff could cause. This is past history, it was done for decades by the (D)-only, communist Congresses from Eisenhower to Bush41. It’s not about DoJ documents merely sent to Nunes or Meadows or Jordan, it is Executive Branch documents handed to Schiff and Swalwell and Schumer and Pelosi … ad nauseum, and all their anonymous staffers and the reporters they leak to. It is disheartening to see so many people accept the fakenews at face value because it appears that they are the good guys.

          Congress is established by the Constitution, as are it’s powers to make laws as well as the checks and balances vs the executive branch. And that includes oversight (to some extent as the 3 powers each have their own indepedant function).
          So while the exact details of oversight and the establishment of elements of the executive branch such as the DOJ and FBI have been created via laws, it is all based upon the Constitution, however indirectly.

          But the right of Congress to be able to check and control the executive are in the constitution.

          “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”
          — U.S. Constitution, Article I, section 1
          The Constitution says nothing about congressional investigations and oversight, but the authority to conduct investigations is implied since Congress possesses “all legislative powers.” The Supreme Court determined that the framers intended for Congress to seek out information when crafting or reviewing legislation. George Mason of Virginia said at the Federal Convention that Members of Congress “are not only Legislators but they possess inquisitorial powers. They must meet frequently to inspect the Conduct of the public offices.”

            Dr.Jay, lots of words there, but you sure aren’t contradicting anything I said. I was very specific. There is no such thing as Constitutional Oversight, period. Those words come from Hannity and even Turley ( tonight ). But not only are they wrong, they are being intentionally deceptive in trying to legitimize demands from one branch over the other.

            This is an age-old argument. And contrary to Turley’s direct lie, it is used almost exclusively by Congress to harm the Executive Branch. Excessive document requests take all kinds of time to check for information needing redactions. 1.2 million is insane really. This can kneecap a given agency when abused. And protecting the Constitutional separation of each branch is an important cause, especially now in case the (D)ummies ever get control of the Legislative again.

          Try to focus on what I said, not what you imagine I said. Hannity is the one who said “Constitutional Oversight” ( as well as others ) and he says it continually. What I said is that there is no such thing, never has been. We’ve plowed this field for decades.

          By throwing in “Constitutional Oversight” Hannity attempts to add weight to the argument, weight that does *not* exist. There is no Constitutional issue in document disputes when they withhold them, the Constitutional issue actually arises when they try to demand them from a different branch ( separation of powers ). Congress does not get to stealth edit the Constitution by statute. Your argument is with Hannity, not me.

        They are not demanding 1.2 Million documents. The ones that Nunes talks about are just a few.
        1) EC – One document that states how & why investigation is opened.
        Needed to verify Brennan’s verbal briefing; odd that Brennan would know & do so, yet DOJ/FBI did not. Also needed to verify why investigation was started.
        It seems that Brennan’s story is not inline with what was in that document and there are serious evidence issues with the official / leaked reasons given for why a CI investigation was opened by the FBI on 2016-07-31.

        2) Agreement to epmploy CIA asset Halper as FBI informant. This ‘fact’, as well as who he was working for when AND the date needs to be checked as Halper was already active prior to the start of the investigation.
        Likely either as CIA agent working against a US target who is member of political campaign (against law/1947 CIA charter and 2nd part is a Hatch Act 1939 violation) or as FBI informant but that can’t be correct as he would be working prior to start of CI investigation (and similar issue applies, apart from Hatch Act violation).

          Yes he did. Look for him on Bream several weeks back. 1.2 million and 1/4 have been received but not yet ( then ) read by his staff.

          Of course wny of us could get to the bottom of this if we were interviewing Nunes rather than Derp-TV hosts.

          And the very first question should be: Congressman, are you being denied access to any documents you have requested or merely the delivery of them to your staff? In other words, can you simply come down from your perch on the Hill and walk over to DoJ and sign in to a SCIF to view what you need for your “oversight” so that the names of people viewing documents are recorded ( as opposed to delivering them to anonymous staffers with no trail to run down leaks ) ?

          We do not even have the answer to this very simple question. Nunes did precisely this at the White House last year ( sign in to a SCIF ). And also, he was asked by Bream or Ingraham if the leaks had been plugged in his committee ( Schiff and staff ) and he did *not* answer. You would think since the Wolfe indictment was unsealed just a few days ago this subject would be topic number one. But you would be wrong.

    I was under the impression that citizens need the PERMISSION of the government BEFORE they are ALLOWED to sue. So this looks like a media stunt to me.

    From WIKI: “In United States law, the federal government as well as state and tribal governments generally enjoy sovereign immunity, also known as governmental immunity, from lawsuits.[…]
    In the United States, the federal government has sovereign immunity and may not be sued unless it has waived its immunity or consented to suit.[7] The United States as a sovereign is immune from suit unless it unequivocally consents to being sued.[8] The United States Supreme Court in Price v. United States observed: “It is an axiom of our jurisprudence. The government is not liable to suit unless it consents thereto, and its liability in suit cannot be extended beyond the plain language of the statute authorizing it.”[9]

    The principle was not mentioned in the original United States Constitution. The courts have recognized it both as a principle that was inherited from English common law, and as a practical, logical inference (that the government cannot be compelled by the courts because it is the power of the government that creates the courts in the first place).[10]

    The United States has waived sovereign immunity to a limited extent, mainly through the Federal Tort Claims Act, which waives the immunity if a tortious act of a federal employee causes damage, and the Tucker Act, which waives the immunity over claims arising out of contracts to which the federal government is a party. The Federal Tort Claims Act and the Tucker Act are not the broad waivers of sovereign immunity they might appear to be, as there are a number of statutory exceptions and judicially fashioned limiting doctrines applicable to both. Title 28 U.S.C. § 1331 confers federal question jurisdiction on district courts, but this statute has been held not to be a blanket waiver of sovereign immunity on the part of the federal government.”

    From another source:
    “Typically, you can’t sue the federal government. However, the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) provides a limited right for private citizens to file a lawsuit in federal court against a federal government agency for negligence or personal injury claims. You may have a lawsuit under the FTCA if, for example, you were hit by a postal service truck while crossing the street, or you slipped and fell in a Social Security office. A lawsuit under the FTCA is more complicated than a basic personal injury lawsuit against another individual or a private business, and you must first exhaust administrative remedies before you have the right to sue the federal government.” link
