Trump Supporters Descend Into Pandemonium After CNN Hires Former FBI Official As Contributor

Donald Trump fans

President Donald Trump supporters are lashing out at CNN after the news network announced on Friday said it has hired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as a contributor.

The former FBI official was fired from the agency last year for being critical of the president after an internal agency office that handles disciplinary matters received a recommendation from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

McCabe, 51, has made regular media appearances, mostly on CNN and MSNBC, since his dismissal. In February, he published a book that was highly critical of President Trump.

Earlier this month McCabe sued the Justice Department and FBI over his termination, arguing that his firing was a politically motivated move stemming from Trump’s attacks against him and other Justice officials.

CNN’s decision to hire McCabe was met with angry outbursts from conservatives.
