McCabe’s Lawyer Uses Twitter For The First Time And Unleashes Hell On Donald Trump

After former reality show star Donald Trump lashed out again at ex-Deputy Directory Andrew McCabe (pictured) after his Attorney General fired him just a day before he was to receive his pension, Michael Bromwich, McCabe’s attorney responded in a statement and on Twitter.

This is the first time Bromwich has ever tweeted.

“I have been involved in DOJ and FBI disciplinary matters since 1994,” he wrote on Twitter. “I have never before seen the type of rush to judgment – and rush to summary punishment – that we have witnessed in the case of Andy McCabe.”

“We will not be responding to each childish, defamatory, disgusting & false tweet by the President,” he continued. “The whole truth will come out in due course. But the tweets confirm that he has corrupted the entire process that led to Mr. McCabe’s termination and has rendered it illegitimate.”

In a statement, he called the rush to judgment “deplorable.”

“The result of this deplorable rush to judgment is to terminate Mr. McCabe before his long-anticipated retirement and deny him of the full pension and retirement benefits he would have otherwise earned through his 21 years of devoted service to the FBI and this country,” he said.

“This distortion of the process begins at the very top, with the President’s repeated offensive, drive-by Twitter attacks on Mr. McCabe,” he continued. “These attacks began in the summer of 2017 and accelerated after it was disclosed that Mr. McCabe would be a corroborating witness against the President.”

“This concerted effort to accelerate the process in order to beat the ticking clock of his scheduled retirement violates any sense of decency and basic principles of fairness,” he added. “It should make all federal government employees, who continue to work in an Administration that insults, debases, and abuses them, shudder in the knowledge that they could be next.”
