Should McCabe Have Been Allowed To Just Retire?

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) recently spoke to NBC’s “Meet The Press,” where he discussed the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe just two days before he was eligible for pension.

Rubio stated, “I don’t like the way it happened. He should have been allowed to finish through the weekend.”

“That said, look, there’s an inspector general report that’s due and work that’s being done. After he had retired if that report would’ve indicated wrongdoing or something that was actionable, there are things that could’ve been done after the fact. But, you know, 48 hours to go before retirement, I would’ve certainly done it differently given the fact there’s still this report out there that hasn’t come in.”
