美司法部长开除联调局二把手麦凯布 Attorney General Fires Former No. 2 FBI Official McCabe

美国司法部长塞申斯星期五晚上发布声明说,前美国联邦调查局副局长安德鲁·麦凯布(Andrew McCabe)被开除公职,立即生效。








Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has been fired -- effective immediately, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement released late Friday.

McCabe, at one time the No. 2 official in the agency whom President Donald Trump has publicly criticized for alleged political bias and reportedly wanted fired, stepped down from the agency Jan. 30. He had planned to retire on Sunday -- his birthday -- with full benefits. However, now that he has been fired, some or all of his pension could be at risk.

McCabe was thrust into controversy just days before the 2016 presidential election when it was disclosed that his wife, Jill McCabe, a Democratic candidate for a seat in the Virginia Senate in 2015, had taken hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations from a political action committee controlled by a friend of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton — then-Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.

Trump, then the Republican presidential nominee, used the disclosure to question the FBI's impartiality in investigating Clinton's use of a private email server, before it declined to bring criminal charges against her.

At the time, the FBI said that McCabe had consulted bureau ethics officials and that he and FBI lawyers "implemented a system of recusal from all FBI investigative matters involving Virginia politics."

After Trump abruptly fired then-FBI Director James Comey over the Russia investigation in May 2017, Attorney General Sessions elevated McCabe to acting director.

McCabe responded to the news late Friday, saying he believed he was being "singled out" for things he witnessed when Trump fired Comey.

McCabe served 22 years with the FBI.
