So, Trump has gotten Sessions to fire McCabe just before he was set to retire, denying him a large chunk of his pension. Trump's many comments on the matter suggest that this act was retaliatory, a punishment for crossing the gangster-in-chief. It goes without saying that this was also an extremely petty thing to do, and hilariously hypocritical given that he was criticized for lack of candor by a man who's lied to congress, in a time when the WH's representatives--including the president--regularly lies to the public of this banana republic.

Do you believe McCabe will sue for wrongful termination, and do you believe he'll be successful? The statement he released in response immediately after the announcement suggests he and possibly his lawyers were prepared for this eventuality but obv. hard to determine the merits of a lawsuit w/out knowing more about the IG's report.

Someone suggested that if some congressman were to employ McCabe immediately and let him work for a while longer, he might be able to retain his pension. Is that accurate?

McCabe is likely to be a witness in any obstruction of justice case that might be brought by Mueller & co. Would his firing be regarded as evidence against Trump in such a case?

Given that McCabe is a potential witness in the Russia investigation, is it appropriate for Sessions--who has had to recuse himself from all matters relating to that investigation--to fire him?
