Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night, Sean called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to immediately fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe; adding the senior bureau official is “as crooked as they come.”
“The Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reviewing a recommendation from the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility to give McCabe the ax. Firing McCabe before Friday would mean he would lose his tax-payer funded pension. Something explosive has gone on here,” said Hannity.
“The new development is raising speculation that the DOJ’s Inspector General’s report about the FBI’s phony Clinton email investigation will be released soon. Fox News has also discovered that McCabe was not forthcoming about his approval for an FBI official to talk to reporters about the bureau’s investigation into the Clinton Foundation,” he added.
“When it comes to firing Andrew McCabe, the Attorney General should not be contemplating a decision here, because the answer is obvious, and the facts are staring Sessions right in the face,” Sean said. “McCabe is corrupt and he’s as crooked as they come. He is one of those Deep State actors that we have been telling you about and he needs to be held accountable.”

BOMBSHELL REPORT: FBI’s McCabe Behind CLINTON INVESTIGATION Leaks in 2016
Former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe was reportedly behind the illegal leaks regarding Hillary Clinton’s ongoing email investigation in 2016, releasing sensitive material to the Wall Street Journal ahead of the US presidential election.
According to a bombshell story in the New York Times, an upcoming report from the DOJ’s Inspector General is expected to blame McCabe for the unprecedented amount of leaks originating in the bureau ahead of Election Day.
“A Justice Department review is expected to criticize the former F.B.I. deputy director, Andrew G. McCabe, for authorizing the disclosure of information about a continuing investigation to journalists, according to four people familiar with the inquiry,” writes the Times.
“It is unclear whether the inspector general will identify others who spoke about the Clinton investigation. But Mr. McCabe is by far the most prominent subject,” the article adds.
The revelation comes as the FBI enters another month marred in controversy.
The bureau has been the focus of Congressional investigators for weeks following Rep. Devin Nunes’ explosive FISA memo last month; alleging the agency used Clinton-financed material to spy on senior Trump associates.
FBI BOMBSHELL: McCabe Knew of CLINTON EMAILS Weeks Before Alerting Congress
Outgoing Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe knew of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material weeks before alerting Congressional leaders; raising serious questions over the bureau’s handling of Clinton’s private email server.
A bombshell report published by the Wall Street Journal outlines McCabe’s decision to withhold information regarding the former Secretary of State’s emails after he learned they were found on disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
“Top FBI officials were aware for at least a month before alerting Congress that emails potentially related to an investigation of Hillary Clinton had emerged during a key stretch of the 2016 presidential campaign,” writes the WSJ.
“On Sept. 28, Strzok messaged Page that he had been ‘called up to Andy’s office’ earlier that day and told of ‘hundreds of thousands of emails turned over by Weiner’s [attorney] to sdny,’ a reference to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. Strzok added that the email cache ‘includes a ton of material from spouse,’ a reference to Weiner’s then-wife Huma Abedin, a top adviser to Clinton,” adds Fox News.
The explosive report comes just days after McCabe suddenly announced his early retirement from the FBI; increasing pressure on the bureau as the President is set to release the controversial FISA memo at any moment.
