FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe fired with significant pension and family medical benefits lost for allegedly misleading investigators "Under the rules of FERS, that means he could be left with the standard multiplier of 1% on top of his years of service, down from the 1.7% enhanced rate for law enforcement. Former FBI officials tell CNN that McCabe could also lose out on future health care coverage in his retirement if he were to be fired before he turned 50, and the firing could be subject to litigation. The "most significant 'damage' to a separated FBI employee is: loss of lifetime medical benefits for self and family,"

How is this a "National Lab related issue", which is supposed to be on-topic here? At best this thread will generate a food fight of polarized political opinions. For example, mine: The guy got what he deserved for failing the ethics litmus test, and he had to be made into an example for the greater good.

McCabe can sue the DOJ. Yes McCabe, please open up that can of worms ! Some Fed prosecutors are just waiting for you to trigger an expanded investigation into your double dealing and corruption. Remember, "let's meet in Andy's office to discuss how to stop the soon to be inaugurated President".

It may have come down to this. They discovered evidence that he may have committed perjury since the released statement was that he was not candid while under oath. Now if criminal charges are brought would the defense argue that FBI rules state if he was not candid (whether or not under oath), there would be grounds to be fired. And if he was not fired for possibly a non-criminal offense which was a lower threshold than perjury, would it not follow he should not be charged with a crime?

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

Under TCP2 (401k matching program), there would not seem to be any consequence to being fired. Am I right ? However under TCP2 (pension plan) would the pension rights be taken away with a firing for cause ? Question to HR ?

Both the DOJ Inspector General and the FBI's own Office of Professional Responsibility concluded that McCabe should be fired. So Sessions fired him. Nothing to whine about here, move on.
