    Yes! It is almost comical how deep in their lies they all are.

    Sounds like the White House has a leaker:

    Let's see...BuzzFeed got the info on Stormy Daniels through the discovery process because Cohen was foolish enough to sue them. Trump is now suing her after saying that he had nothing to do with her hush money. Her shark lawyer is going to go after every scrap of paper the Trump Organization has. Now this. This lawyer turned down a Trump request apparently to work on his team.

    Andrew McCabe has lawyered up, The Daily Beast reports.

    Michael Bromwich, who is representing McCabe, was formerly the inspector general of the Justice Department. https://t.co/G6lFANtljr

    CNN’s @LauraAJarrett reports that much like fired FBI Director James Comey, there are memos former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wrote documenting his conversations with the President, among other things, according to a source with knowledge of the matter.

    A person with direct knowledge of the situation tells AP that the memos are similar to the ones maintained by James Comey.

    The person with knowledge of McCabe’s situation says McCabe’s memos include details of interactions with Trump, among other topics. https://t.co/bPcDk0r00O

    America needs to take this traitorous fucker down, along with his grifter family and hangers on. The founding fathers are spinning in their graves right now because of how the institutions they put in place to avoid this scenario are failing so far. It's up to the people to get the traitors in the house and congress OUT, they are not working for the people, they are kowtowing to their Dear Leader, an autocrat.

    And when he is taken down, because he has to be to prove that The Constitution is more than toilet paper at the point, there better be no "when they go low we go high" bullshit. They need to go after him with fire and fury as they should since he IS a traitor and that is supposed to be the worst thing an American can be. Go after him as he has America, with spite and vengeance and make him pay for all insults and assaults he has made against constitutional institutions. There needs to be charges, not just impeachment proceedings.

    There's something I dont understand, I read several times that McCabe would get no pension because his contract was terminated before his retirement time. How can someone work an entire career and get nothing just for a matter of days? It seems downright crazy.
    Am I understanding it right, how does the pension system work in the US?

    ^ Not sure I understand it either. Terms of your pension plan depend on where you work, years of service, and your age. He may be entitled to a portion, but not fully vested since his termination was (days) before age 50. I've worked places where you can get pension after 5 or 10 years of service, but you can't collect until age 55 or 60 and it's not much, the longer you wait, the more you collect, and obviously the more years of service, the higher the monthly amount. But that's the private sector. My impression was that government pensions are better, people can put in 20-25 years and "retire" then find jobs elsewhere while collecting their full government pensions.

    In McCabe's case, not sure if the "misconduct" they're alleging would affect things, or if it's more of a loophole that he was terminated before he turned 50 and therefore not fully vested in his retirement benefits.

    Ok I'm trying to understand something here.
    I can't find anything on the IG's investigation or the integrity of it or lack thereof
    That, at least to me, is the main story.
    If the IG has credible evidence McCabe lied then he deserved to be fired...he DID NOT deserve to lose his pension.
    However, I can't find any details about the IG's investigation...twitchy or shimmeringGlow, anything?
