Raskin Offers Fired FBI Deputy Director a Job

Just days after FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired from his position, U.S. Congressman Jamie Raskin (MD-8) offered him a job.

In a series of tweets from Raskin, he stated, “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.” Raskin continued, “You’re perfect for the job. DM me.”

McCabe, who served in the FBI for more than 20 years, was fired just hours before he would have qualified for a full federal pension, according to the Washington Post.

Raskin stated firing McCabe was “a vicious and terrible thing to do to a man who devoted 21 years of service to this country.”

Lauren Doney, spokesperson for Raskin, said “no word from Mr. McCabe,” on whether or not he would accept the position.

    Disgusting that anyone in congress would offer a job without going through a diverse selection of applicants. This is a political motivated hire and below the office Mr. Raskin was elected to hold.
