Democrat Congressman Comes To Andrew McCabe’s Rescue

In Washington D.C. there is always more than one way to skin a cat and Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe seems to have found one of those ways. McCabe just needs a few days of Federal employment in order to qualify for the pension his firing just lost him. As the fates would have it there is at least one Democrat who is willing to hire him to fulfill his time in service requirement. Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) announced that he was McCabe’s huckleberry and would be there for him. 

As Written and Reported By Amber Phillips for the Washington Post:

That’s one way of protesting Andrew McCabe’s firing as deputy FBI director, roughly a day before he was set to retire: At least one Democratic congressman has offered McCabe a temporary job so he can get full retirement benefits — and McCabe appears to be considering.

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) announced Saturday afternoon that he has offered McCabe a job to work on election security in his office, “so that he can reach the needed length of service” to retire.

“My offer of employment to Mr. McCabe is a legitimate offer to work on election security,” Pocan said in a statement. “Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of American democracy and both Republicans and Democrats should be concerned about election integrity.”

A spokeswoman for McCabe, Melissa Schwartz, didn’t immediately rule out a job with one of the most liberal members of Congress, which might only need to last for a day or so for him to get his full retirement benefits: “We are considering all options.”

Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) tweeted that he’d consider hiring McCabe, too……
