Now, McCabe - who is suing the DOJ and FBI over what he claims was a "politically motivated" firing just days before he was set to retire with full benefits," will join former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper at CNN.
Andrew McCabe, one of the central figures of the "Russia collusion" hoax, who was fired from the FBI for lying about his leaks to the media, has been hired by CNN, one of the media outlets that did the most to perpetuate the damaging hoax. pic.twitter.com/lvfPRCk4tb

McCabe authorized an FBI spokesman to tell the Wall Street Journal's Devlin Barrett - just days before the 2016 US election, that the FBI hadn't put the brakes on an investigation into the Clinton Foundation - at a time in which McCabe was coming under fire for his wife taking a $467,500 campaign contribution from Clinton associate, Terry McAuliffe.
As noted above, McCabe then lied about the leak at least four times and was subsequently fired over it.
McCabe claimed that his boss, also-fired former FBI Director James Comey, was well aware of the leaks. Comey shot back on ABC's The View, calling McCabe a liar.
