FLASHBACK: Democrats Offered to Hire McCabe After Firing

With the news breaking Thursday that the Department of Justice’s Inspector General referred former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for criminal charges, it’s worth remembering that several Democratic members of Congress offered to hire McCabe in the wake of his dismissal.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe last month, after the damning IG report. While the report was not public, that did not stop speculation that the government fired McCabe because of pressure from President Trump. McCabe was fired days before his pension would kick in, prompting outrage from Trump’s opponents.

Several Democrats, in the wake of the dismissal, offered to employ McCabe in Congress to help him keep that pension. Here’s the list of those Democrats, per The Huffington Post:

  • Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI)
  • Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD)
  • Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA)
  • Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL)

Do their offers of employment still stand after McCabe was referred for possible criminal prosecution?
