Former FBI deputy chief McCabe gets pension back in lawsuit settlement


The Justice Department has agreed to restore former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s full pension as part of its settlement of McCabe’s lawsuit stemming from his firing from the bureau more than three-and-a-half years ago, his lawyer announced Thursday.

McCabe sued the Justice Department and FBI in August 2019, arguing that his March 2018 dismissal by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions was a political move ordered by then-President Donald Trump.

The Trump DOJ had justified McCabe’s firing by citing an internal probe which found he had authorized the leaking of information to the Wall Street Journal and lied to investigators about it. The settlement announced Thursday vacates that decision and expunges from McCabe’s personnel folder any references to having been fired.
