WASHINGTON (AP) — Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has won back his full pension as part of a lawsuit settlement arising from his firing during the Trump administration.
According to his lawyer’s statement on Thursday, that is.
McCabe, a frequent target of then-President Donald Trump’s ire, was fired in March 2018, a day before he was set to retire.
His termination was later sued by McCabe, who claimed it was politically motivated. McCabe claims he was fired after opening the investigation into Trump’s collusion in 2016’s presidential election.
In a statement, McCabe said, “Politics should never play a role in the fair administration of justice and civil service personnel decisions.”
According to the Justice Department, it did not apologize for wrongdoing or admit to it. NPRThe settlement documents were reviewed by.
