The adage “crime doesn’t pay” apparently doesn’t apply to liberals. Just ask Andrew McCabe, who’s getting deluged with job offers after being fired for lying to the FBI.
Committing a federal crime hasn’t stopped Democrats from offering to hire the disgraced former deputy FBI director McCabe. McCabe was fired just days before his full government pension (courtesy of American taxpayers) kicked in, and liberals are rallying around him to save it.
MSNBC host Andrew Mitchell kicked off the Please-Hire-McCabe Marathon, tweeting: “If a friendly member of Congress hired him for a week he could possibly qualify for pension benefits by extending his service the extra days.”

Naturally, Democratic lawmakers (whose salaries taxpayers funding) chimed in with job offers. Wisconsin Congressman Mark Pocan chirped: “Andrew call me. I could use a good two-day report on the biggest crime families in Washington, D.C.”
It’s unclear if the report Pocan commissioned will include the biggest D.C. crime family syndicate of all time: The Clintons.

Congressman Tim Walz (D-Minnesota) also tweeted a job offer to the fired Obama holdover, saying: “Mr. McCabe, if you need a federal job for a few days, give me a call.”
This reckless attitude towards Americans’ lives and careers is exactly why this man should not be President. Mr. McCabe, if you need a federal job for a few days, give me a call. We value servant leadership around here.

Illinois Democrat Luis Gutierrez, who was recently arrested for promoting illegal immigration, also chimed in.
To Andrew McCabe: If you need a federal job, call me on Monday. I am serious. We have to stand up to bullies like @realDonaldTrump & @jeffsessions @USAGSessions #Resist #twill #AndrewMcCabeFired #standuptobullies #chicago @Comey

Maryland Democrat Jamie Raskin said he’d love to hire a “documented liar” to help him with work on the House Judiciary Committee.
Andrew McCabe: I have the need to hire a Special Senior Staff Attorney to help me with my work on the House Judiciary Committee dealing with threats to the Constitution and the rule of law in America. You're perfect for the job. DM me.

Of course, former White House employees who have never lied to the FBI like Ari Fleischer reacted by saying it’s a “wonderful idea” for Democratic congressman to hire documented liars.
“Every member of Congress should hire fired bureaucrats who lied to an inspector general in the course of a government investigation,” Fleischer tweeted sarcastically. “Pensions before Honesty. Great slogan.”

Actor and political activist slammed MSNBC’s Andrew Mitchell as a “partisan hack.”
“Of course you would promote hiring a liar fired on the recommendation of the FBI Office for Professional Responsibility,” Woods said. “You should thank your lucky stars the world of journalism doesn’t have such an office. You’d be unemployed.”

Former NYPD police officer John Cardillo of RebelTV urged Dems to continue with their toothless “resistance” of American laws, saying it will help Republicans win the midterm elections.
“PLEASE advise your Dem friends to do this,” Cardillo tweeted. “It would energize the hell out of R and NPA (No-Party-Affiliation) voters in the midterms.”
.@mitchellreports, that’s about the dumbest advice ever.
That Congressperson or Senator would be spitting in the face of FBI OPR and DOJ OIG.

Meanwhile, former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino summed it up best when he said McCabe’s firing “was justice.”
“This was justice,” Bongino told Fox News (video above). “Really, who cares what liberals have to say anymore? I mean, I don’t. I’m sorry. I care about what responsible Democrats have to say; the radical-left kooky crowd I don’t care about. These are people who laugh even though the Trump team was spied on. They don’t care about the Fourth Amendment anymore. This case was an abomination of justice the entire time.”
Bongino continued: “The guy who recommended the firing, the Inspector General [Michael Horowitz], was an Obama appointee. So liberals, spare us all your snowflake tears. We’re done with you guys. You got busted and now you can’t handle it.”
