President Donald Trump and his team of misfits have spent months attacking former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. After being fired 26 hours before his formal retirement — a move that could cost him his federal pension — McCabe decided that justice needs to be served.
According to a reporter from MSNBC, McCabe’s lawyers are now taking legal action to fight against his misleading and unfair firing.

McCabe says that when he believed his answers to the inspector general were misunderstood, he went back and tried to correct them. His lawyer says the inspector general unfairly tried to conclude its work before McCabe could retire.
Of course, the entire nation watched as Donald Trump gleefully pushed for the investigation to conclude early, after having hinted at trying to strip McCabe of his pension weeks earlier in a tweet at the beginning of the inquiry. It was clear that both Trump and his whipping boy at the Justice Department, Jeff Sessions, were intent on making sure they ruined McCabe’s life.
McCabe, who gave over 20 years of his life serving this country, was essentially fired over some conjured up and convoluted scheme by the Trump administration, to discredit witnesses to save a corrupt White House. That is more than enough reason to retaliate. Nonetheless, the president has been sued over 134 times in federal court since his inauguration, which speaks volumes about what kind of man he truly is—manipulative, deceitful, and corrupt.
Trump does not embody the values of a real president. As more and more people take legal action against Trump it’s going to be really difficult for him to maneuver through these cases.
