Ex-FBI Agent Warns Mueller About Integrity, Says He Must Step Aside
In the aftermath of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s termination, numerous officials have voiced their opinion on the decision.
One of those that seem to be in agreement with Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ move is Kenneth Strange, who served the FBI as a member of the Joint Terrorism Task Force in Newark, New Jersey.
According to Strange, who also worked as the special agent in charge of the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General in Los Angeles, McCabe’s firing was “painful to witness,” as the deputy director had been let go just hours before he was eligible for retirement and “certain pension.”
However, the former FBI member suggested that the loss of the generous pension may be the least of McCabe’s worries.
Strange insisted that McCabe may be facing federal charges for “lying to other federal agents, charges that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller knows all too well and is wielding with great effect in the Russian collusion case.”
“Still, I wonder about Mueller,” Strange wrote for The Hill. “McCabe, Peter Strzok and James Comey all are public servants who former FBI Director Mueller mentored, supervised or knew well.”
