vindictive, not vindicated

'Jeff Sessions' fired McCabe late Friday night, citing reports from the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility and Office of the Inspector General that stated that McCabe improperly disclosed information to a news reporter…" (it was the trumpster in the dumpster, not the Jeff with the heff)

In the statement, released at 9:59 p.m. EST, Sessions said that based on the inspector general’s report and the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.”

McCabe was expected to retire today, his 50th birthday, when he would have become eligible for retirement benefits. “Sessions’ decision” will likely severely cut or even eliminate those benefits – at least for the time being.

Shortly after midnight (on Saturday morning), about two hours after Sessions issued his statement, Trump Tweeted:

"Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI - A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!"

In response, McCabe released a fiery statement. “I am being singled out and treated this way because of the role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath of the firing of James Comey.”

McCabe turned over his notes to special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, according to several reports. The revelation came as… John Dowd tried using McCabe’s dismissal as a call to end Mueller’s criminal probe of Trump. The opposite effect is taking shape.

Republican Rep. Charlie Dent (Pa.) said Saturday that firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Friday night looked like a "vindictive" act of Trump.

"I don't like [the] optics of this, & I have to tell you, it looks like the AG may have been browbeaten into this. He's been publicly humiliated by POTUS many times. I don't think this bodes well"

Just how vindictive is the Donald?

While there is a quite a list to choose from, one stands out. In 1999, Donald Trump’s father died. His deceased older brother’s family was cut out of the will. They subsequently sued the Donald because they were once in the will, but claimed the Donald took advantage of his father’s advanced dementia to cut them out.

But that’s not the REALLY vindictive part.
This is: Trump retaliated by withdrawing the medical benefits critical to his older brother’s grandchild.

“I was angry because they sued,” Trump explained in an interview.

What kind of billionaire withdraws the health insurance of an infant with cerebral palsy in a fit of pique?

Being prepared to kill a baby out of vengeance toward their parents… now THAT is an extreme kind of vindictive.

'The White House is in meltdown'

"Here we go again," said Bill Press on NBC News. "Another top Trump advisor fired, resigned, or run out of a job. [This is] one more indication of a White House in complete disarray. Trump can’t attract good people to work for him, perhaps more important, can’t even hold onto the mediocre ones he’s got."

Trump's inability to hire and keep quality people is the most glaring example of the "total meltdown" under "Trump's lack of leadership," he said.
