The Department of Justice is doing lots of yoga this week to pretend they are independent of Donald Trump. They just dropped the Andrew McCabe case.
February 14, 2020

"Wait, shouldn't Trump be allowed to convict anyone he doesn't like?"

That is the sentiment being expressed on Republican Twitter Friday, as the Justice Department, in a conveniently-timed move...

...told Andrew McCabe they were done prosecuting him.

Andrew McCabe is suing for wrongful termination and ERISA violations for screwing him on his pension. This adds to his case and should guarantee him getting a nice payout. Pension, backpay, etc. It can expand his lawsuit.

Can you help us out?
