Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe won his pension back in a lawsuit settlement after getting fired in 2018 for lying to the feds.

Then Attorney-General Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe in March 2018 just days before his scheduled retirement so he wouldn’t qualify for his pension.

“McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor − including under oath − on multiple occasions.” Sessions previously said.

Andrew McCabe sued the DOJ in 2019 and won his pension back after the US government was forced to rescind his firing and “deem him as having retired in good standing.”

McCabe lashed out at Trump and continued to claim he did nothing wrong in a statement released on Thursday.

“Politics should never play a role in the fair administration of justice and civil service personnel decisions,” McCabe said in a statement. He added that he hopes “this result encourages the men and women of the FBI to continue to protect the American people by standing up for the truth and doing their jobs without fear of political retaliation.”

 

AP reported:

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has won back his full pension as part of a settlement of his lawsuit arising from his firing during the Trump administration more than three years ago, his lawyers announced Thursday.

McCabe sued in 2019, saying his firing was part of an effort by Trump to purge the FBI of officials he perceived as disloyal. McCabe had become acting director of the FBI in May 2017 after Trump fired James Comey amid the bureau’s Russia investigation, a termination that was examined by special counsel Robert Mueller for potential obstruction of justice.

As part of the settlement, the federal government has agreed to rescind and vacate McCabe’s firing, deem him as having retired in good standing and restore his full retirement pension. He is also entitled to other benefits afforded to retiring FBI senior executives, including special cufflinks and “official FBI credentials, badge, and time-in-service award keys mounted in the format typically provided to retiring FBI Deputy Directors” and other senior officials, according to the settlement.
