Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will join CNN as a network “contributor”, according to senior media reporter, Oliver Darcy at the Cable News Network.
Judge Jeanie Pirro responded to the news Friday morning on “Fox and Friends” by laughing out loud after host Steve Doocy read CNN’s Oliver Darcy’s tweet that read: “Some news: CNN announces Andrew McCabe has been signed as a contributor.”
Andrew McCabe was dealt a stunning blow just days before he would have been eligible for a lifetime pension. He was fired in March 2018, after the DOJ’s Inspector General concluded in his report that McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor − including under oath − on multiple occasions.
“Pursuant to Department Order 1202, and based on the report of the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, and the recommendation of the Department’s senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately,” former Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement.
Judge Jeanine responded and said that McCabe left the department in disgrace. “I believe that there’s a referral by the Inspector General. I expect him to be indicted soon, based on that criminal referral. And, I think he and [James] Comey were going at each other, as I recall, pointing a finger at each other for perjury.”
“And in the end, what you’ve got is a guy now– I mean, CNN is showing its true colors. A guy who was in the middle of the FBI– of this whole investigation, as to whether or not there was this ‘deep state’ trying to prevent Trump from becoming President, and then framing him for Russia collusion,” she explained.

Co-host Brian Kilmeade asked, “Remember the wearing of the wire? He’s part of that whole thing.”
Jeanine agreed and replied, “He’s part of the whole thing, and that’s why he works for CNN. He’s perfect for them. They’re gonna go on and on.”
“It’s not surprising that they hired him to be honest with you. For every one that listens to that channel, here’s this guy at any moment can be indicted and CNN thinks he’s worthy of credibility,” she said. (Continued Below)
Kilmeade said that Michael Horowitz has his report complete and it will come out in a few weeks. “More than likely, you know the case very well, McCabe’s not going to come out looking too good. What do you think they’re saying at CNN by the fact that they could have a guy who’s in more trouble about a report that’s about to be released? Why wouldn’t they wait?” he asked.

The Judge put everything in perspective and described how CNN is turning a blind eye, but also how they’re being complicit: “What they’re saying is it doesn’t matter what the report says. It doesn’t matter what reality is. It doesn’t matter what the investigation shows. He’s on our side so we’re gonna make him look good.”
“Just because you say that’s a cup or he’s a bad guy, doesn’t mean that that’s a cup or he’s a bad guy. We’re gonna turn everything on its head– like they do to the Constitution, and everything else and law and order. That’s what they do on the left. Nothing is as it seems,” she added. (Video Below)
