Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe deserves being fired for not recusing himself from an investigation into Hillary Clinton, as his wife accepted donations from people close to the former presidential candidate, argues Robert Charles of Fox News. Jill McCabe ran in the Virginia Senate seat, raising $780,000 from sources close to Clinton, so her husband should not have overseen the FBI's investigation. He arguably mishandled highly sensitive investigations into both Clinton and Donald Trump. The outcome benefited the former’s campaign and hampered the latter’s.
The firing of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe was underserved. The charges lobbed against him by President Trump and Jeff Sessions are unfounded, motivated by partisanship, believes Jeffrey Toobin of The New Yorker. His firing from the FBI was deeply unfair as his work was done professionally and by the book. It partially stemmed from the fact that he is a crucial witness in the goings-on surrounding the controversial firing of James Comey. Trump may be attempting to delegitimize McCabe as a source in the Russia investigation.
