Leading up to the day he was forced out of his job, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe threatened to “torch” the FBI if he lost his full federal retirement benefits.
A course told True Pundit:
“Someone should keep an eye on him.”
But McCabe may also have been reacting, in part, to another growing problem beyond the corruption scandals enveloping McCabe’s leadership at the embattled FBI.
An FBI insider with Intel inside the embattled Bureau who has vigilantly worked to uncover systemic corruption inside the FBI, is rumored to be penning a tell-all book that promises to blow the roof off the inner-workings of the FBI’s controversial 7th-Floor.
This could spell trouble for more than McCabe.
More on the retirement, per Free Beacon:
FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe is set to receive a nearly $2 million pension, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.
The top law enforcement official, who has come under scrutiny for overseeing the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, stepped aside on Monday. McCabe took early retirement, which he was eligible for after serving at the bureau for over 20 years.
McCabe joined the FBI in 1996 and worked his way up to high paying executive service positions. He was serving as the assistant director in charge of the Washington, D.C., field office until July 2015, when he was named the FBI’s associate deputy director, carrying an ES Level 4 pay scale.
The Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) calls for law enforcement officers to receive 1.7 percent of the officer’s average highest salary over a period of three consecutive years per year for the agent’s first 20 years of service. Additionally, they receive 1 percent of the highest average salary for each year exceeding 20 years of service. McCabe served 21 years.
It looks like President Trump is taking draining the swamp very seriously. It’s time to release the memo and get to the bottom of what McCabe was threatening to “torch.”

James Comey gave his two cents on Twitter:
Special Agent Andrew McCabe stood tall over the last 8 months, when small people were trying to tear down an institution we all depend on. He served with distinction for two decades. I wish Andy well. I also wish continued strength for the rest of the FBI. America needs you.
