CNN has just killed whatever tiny remnants of credibility and claims to “unbiased journalism” it had, and Andrew McCabe took it to it the grave.
For some reason only God knows, CNN has hired former FBI agent and deputy director Andrew McCabe as a news contributor.
Yes, we’re talking about the same Andrew McCabe that was caught lying over and over again, then subsequently fired by President Trump.
In response to CNN's new hire, Donald Trump Jr. send out a reminder to the American people:
Needless to say, McCabe's new role as a "news" reporter at CNN is problematic, to put it kindly.
Everyone knows it, too.
Check out this blunt response tweets to the news on Twitter:
McCabe is not the only questionable employee over at CNN.
As Geoffrey Ingersoll pointed out:
CNBC has more on McCabe's new gig:
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who became one of President Donald Trump’s top enemies within his own administration, is joining CNN as a contributor, a network spokesperson said. His first day is Friday.
McCabe spent two decades in the FBI before he was fired in March 2018 by then Attorney General Jeff Sessions just more than 24 hours before his planned retirement.
The CNN gig comes as McCabe is fighting that termination in court. Earlier this month, McCabe filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court alleging that his removal was part of a scheme by the president to remove government employees “because they were not politically loyal to him.”
McCabe’s hiring was reported earlier by CNN’s senior media reporter Oliver Darcy.
The Justice Department said he was fired because he broke FBI rules by improperly disclosing information to the press related to an investigation into Hillary Clinton. A Justice Department inspector general report later found McCabe had “lacked candor, including under oath” in describing those disclosures to investigators.
The Daily Caller also commented:
CNN is bringing on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as a contributor, the network announced Friday morning.
CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy announced the move on his Twitter account.

In addition to his nearly two years as deputy director, McCabe briefly served as the agency’s acting director following the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
