After former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Andrew McCabe was fired, he published a scathing op-ed in The Washington Post, claiming that he never thought that his 20-year career with the bureau would end the way it did.
However, a former FBI counterterrorism agent who worked with McCabe, Robyn Gritz, said she is glad that President Trump ended his career the way he did, arguing that the lying man deserved it after the way he mistreated her and several other agents in the bureau.
Gritz told Fox News that she has been fighting terrorism for the FBI for over 15 years and went on to recount several incidences where the recently-fired FBI Director “slandered” and mistreated her and several other female agents with “nasty false” comments.
The title of McCabe’s op-ed was, “Not in my worst nightmares did I dream my FBI career would end this way,” which pretty much sums up his position on his termination. But according to Grtiz, many people were elated that he finally got what he deserved and not surprised by his ousting.
In fact, McCabe’s former colleague claimed that he put her through “hell” from the time she first started working with him in 2005.
Gritz ultimately retired and told reporters that McCabe tried to get even with her for filing a harassment claim against one of her superiors.
She cited one example from her days of being a “detailee” to the CIA. Gritz insisted that during this time, her boss started “scrutinizing [her] work and asking questions” about her personal/home life.
Gritz had recently gone through a divorce at the time and claims that her boss expressed his concerns that she may be too “fragile” to successfully carry out the task assigned to her position.
“He made some discriminatory comments about why I was traveling and such,” she explained.
Then when she heard that the same superior was making similar remarks to an African American coworker, she knew it was time to file a complaint against him and so she did.
But in an act of retaliation and likely control, former FBI Director McCabe launched an internal investigation against Grtiz for filing the suit.
However, Gritz claimed that there was no other alternative, arguing that she “went through hell for a year and a half” working under McCabe, and he made it so she “couldn’t get out of the division.”
But the former FBI agent told Fox that McCabe also made “nasty, false” comments about her and even accused him of “lying.”
Gritz claims this is “why he just got fired.”
After Gritz learned of McCabe’s ousting, she was elated. But she was not the only who was thrilled to learn that he was “finally being held accountable.”
In fact, the former FBI agent said that several former colleagues reached out to her to celebrate his removal.
While Andrew McCabe served in the FBI from 1996 until March of 2017, clearly he was a man of mystery that likely had too much power which he clearly abused.
The most interesting thing about McCabe’s abrupt firing is that the democrats made it seem like President Trump was attacking McCabe due to the fact that he was biased against Trump. But while McCabe was clearly biased, he was also a terrible leader. And the dems seem to ignore that fact.
Luckily, Trump saw through him and removed him from his post.
What’s more, in his pathetic op-ed, McCabe tried to gain sympathy from Americans due to the fact that he was fired one day before he was eligible for retirement. But he failed.
In fact, after hearing from Gritz, it sounds like McCabe got just what he deserved.
In the op-ed, McCabe appeals to the compassion of Americans by writing, “So after two decades of public service, I found out that I had been fired in the most disembodied, impersonal way — third-hand, based on a news account.”
Well, that is what happens when you are the director of the FBI and you get caught lying to investigators.
However, McCabe went on to claim that the accusations of “lack of candor” are false. The disgraced former FBI Director insisted that he “did not knowingly mislead or lie to investigators.”
He went on to argue that when he was asked by investigators about his contacts with a reporter, he “answered questions as completely and accurately” as he could.
But he failed to give the right answers and that is what we call a lie. Moreover, McCabe doesn’t see the error of his ways.
In fact, he goes on to claim that when he realized “that some of my answers were not fully accurate or may have been misunderstood” he “took the initiative to correct them.” Unfortunately for McCabe, it was too little, too late.
As the director of the FBI, McCabe had an obligation of candor to the American people and he betrayed that trust. There is no reason or excuse that will justify his confusion when answering investigators’ questions.
McCabe also wrote that he was upset by the way President Trump announced his termination.
“Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hardworking men and women of the FBI — A great day for Democracy,” Trump said. And according to Gritz, he is absolutely right.
