McCabe’s lawyer Michael Bromwich said that they were planning on suing the Trump administration for wrongful termination and defamation. He will use the more than $500,000 raised through a go fund me campaign to bolster his legal defense fund.
Comey, McCabe’s former supervisor appeared on CNN. He said
he likes McCabe “very much as a person but sometimes even good people do things they shouldn’t do”.
It has been a very humorous week watching all these has been’s throw each other under the bus. Now Comey says he feels that McCabe was a friend. On the other hand, McCabe was also throwing Comey under the bus saying that “It is not acceptable in the FBI or the Justice Department for people to lack candor”.
I find it hilarious when the government personnel as well as the news outlets find nice words to describe wrong doing for example, they coin ‘lacking candor’ instead of saying ‘out right lying’. Another good substitution is ‘likes him very much as a person’ where he actually means ‘likes to throw him under the bus to protect myself’.
Legalese was always a language that I could never get a handle on.
