    This is the Leftist Deep State Swamp Creature Hero! The Hero they need!
    That's what I mean, his retirement benefits are the least of his concerns.

    You can't make this shit up folks.
    Ok, so it's obvious you don't bother to check to see if what you post is true. You just roll with whatever conservatives are pushing?

    McCabe, who stepped down from his position as FBI deputy director earlier this year, was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions on March 16 a few days before his official retirement, after 20-plus years at the FBI. Since McCabe’s firing, several readers have asked us about a viral claim that his net worth is $11 million, some saying they saw the claim on Facebook and another crediting “the guy sitting next to me in Starbucks.” Some wondered how he amassed that wealth on a federal salary. We caution readers to consider the source when evaluating information, and in this case, the likely original source contains several red flags that warn its content isn’t reliable.In addition, McCabe’s spokeswoman, Melissa Schwartz, told us the claim is “absolutely not true.” And we found no evidence that would support the $11 million figure.

    Online mentions of the net worth figure, including one by conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, cite a website called finapp.co.in. As the url indicates, it’s registered to someone in India. Its post about McCabe includes a “disclaimer” that says the “details mentioned here are only ‘estimates’ which may or may not be the reality.”

    That disclaimer goes on to say that readers with “credible information” about inaccuracies in the site’s post should “kindly let Finapp know” through an email address. But messages we sent to that address bounced back as undeliverable.

    If that weren’t enough to raise questions about the site and its information, the post also has no author or date. The various figures it gives don’t add up to $11 million, and the only source it cites is a vague reference to “IRS returns” it claims show “income from other sources which are not clearly mentioned.”

    Oh, and it's reached 400K now

    A GoFundMe page that launched Thursday to help cover former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe's legal fees reached $408,859 in 20 hours, according to the fund's page, quickly surpassing its $250,000 goal (which was initially set $150,000). "The response to this effort has been remarkable and beyond our expectations," the page says.

    The backdrop: McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions just 26 hours before he planned on retiring and collecting his pension. The campaign, launched by "Friends of Andrew McCabe," says it hopes this money will help offset the costs he'll rack up during upcoming congressional inquiries, investigations, and any potential lawsuits he might consider.

    I think it raised so much money so fast because most people in this country highly respect the FBI and don't buy into this administration's BS talking points about them.

    It was the FBI that investigated him, and the FBI that fired him. Trump had nothing to do with it.

    Apparently, you don't respect the FBI since you are calling them liars.

    You made a good observation with a great question that had not even run through my mind to be honest. One republican Congressional hearing could eat up $250,000 on the first day. (kidding, sorta)

    Anyone who is confidently pronouncing on the merits of Andrew McCabe’s firing Friday night is venturing well beyond the realm of known facts. But on McCabe’s innocence or culpability for some infraction that might justify his dismissal, we will reserve judgment—and we caution others to as well. It is simply not clear at this stage whether or not the record will support his dismissal. At this stage, all that is available are a general, high-level picture of the process that played out—and the broadest sense of the parameters of the dispute between McCabe and the Justice Department leadership that led to his dismissal. The public has no details. It has no specific facts. We have the broad suggestion that McCabe was not truthful with Justice Department investigators but no sense of what he said or what the specific truth was.

    The full inspector general report on the Clinton email investigation, which will presumably include information on McCabe’s conduct, is to be released later this spring. Without seeing the report, it’s impossible to know whose story reflects the truth here—Sessions’s or McCabe’s. But at the end of the day, the record will either support McCabe’s dismissal or it will not. On the merits, we should have the discipline to wait and see.

    There are, however, at least two features of the action against McCabe that warrant consternation, even if McCabe himself behaved badly enough to justify the sanction. The first is the timing, which is hard to understand. The only factor we can fathom that might justify it is the notion that if McCabe in fact had acted very badly, the window to punish him and thus make an important statement to the bureau workforce was closing.

    But we are unaware of prior cases in which authorities rushed through the merits against a long-serving official in a naked and transparent effort to beat the clock of his retirement. Michael Bromwich, a former Justice Department inspector general who is representing McCabe, described the process as follows:

    Rep Jordon just stated the IG Report will not be kind to McCabe. Those supporting him should be aware that they do so at their own peril, as it will hurt their reputation by association.
