Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe is now suing the Trump administration, which includes Attorney General Bill Barr, the DOJ, the FBI, and FBI Director Chris Wray, after he was fired for his “refusal to pledge allegiance” to Donald Trump.
In his lawsuit, McCabe accuses the administration of firing him for political reasons.
The lawsuit also says President Trump “demanded” McCabe’s “personal allegiance,” and “sought retaliation” when McCabe refused. It also accuses Sessions and Wray of serving as Trump’s “personal enforcers.”
It also claims “It was Trump’s unconstitutional plan and scheme to discredit and remove DOJ and FBI employees who were deemed to be his partisan opponents because they were not politically loyal to him.”
President Trump's tweets are going to make this case a lot harder for the Justice Department. pic.twitter.com/VTNpBH90o9
