Congressional Dems Offer to Hire Andrew McCabe After Dismissal From FBI

Multiple congressional Democrats have extended job offers to ousted FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in hopes that he would be able to collect his pension.

“Andrew McCabe’s firing makes it clear that President Trump is doing everything he can to discredit the FBI and undermine the Special Counsel’s investigation,” Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) said in a press release.

“While Speaker Ryan and House Republicans have become complicit in the President’s destruction of our democracy, we must do all that we can to ensure that the investigation into Russia’s interference in our election is completed and that future elections are safeguarded from these kinds of attacks,” the statement continued.

“My offer of employment to Mr. McCabe is a legitimate offer to work on election security,” Pocan added. “Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of American democracy and both Republicans and Democrats should be concerned about election integrity.”

Rep. Pocan was joined by other congressional Democrats also extending employment offers to McCabe:

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) offered McCabe a position as a special senior staff attorney:

“If you need a federal job, call me on Monday,” Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) tweeted.

McCabe’s dismissal just two days prior to his 50th birthday and scheduled retirement means he would not immediately be eligible to collect his pension. But a former federal official with knowledge of the relevant retirement rules told The Washington Post that going to work on Capitol Hill could help McCabe become eligible.

A spokeswoman for McCabe told the Post that he is currently considering all of his options.
