BREAKING: Andrew McCabe fired days before he retires so that he can't collect his pension
Well, this is what I get for taking a much-needed break.
Jeff Sessions, in order to please Emperor Palpitine, did his bidding and fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe two days before his retirement. This means McCabe won't be able to collect his pension after 21 years of service.
Now. According to the Washington Post, McCabe was behind the leaks in the New York FBI office which tipped the election to Trump in October 2016. For that I don't forgive him.
However, when the FBI began its investigation into Russiagate, there was no indication that McCabe tried to protect Trump. The opposite was true, in fact. And that incensed Trump.
So, in an act of vindictiveness, Trump had Sessions fire McCabe after he was already going to retire, denying him his pension.
This is the perfect example of cutting off your nose to spite your face. Now Trump has made an enemy of a man who knows where all the bodies are buried. McCabe is a man very loyal to James Comey. This will not work out well for Trump.
In an effort to exert temporary dominance, Trump has screwed himself in a fashion which I won't repeat here. (But look at my Twitter feed to see my colorful description.)
Trump acts like a dime store mafioso, thinking he can bully and threaten forces which have been in power longer than his family has been in this country. He's a petty Queens real estate scam artist squaring off against powers and principalities. And he's no Jesus.
Everything Trump does digs his hole deeper. This, to date, is his worst mistake. Eventually he will be buried under their weight.
