Andrew McCabe, former FBI deputy director, is suing the Trump administration for ‘unlawful’ termination, last year, calling it a part of Trump’s ‘unconstitutional scheme’. John Flannery, former federal prosecutor, notes the lawsuit may be a turning point to subpoena the President, as there are ‘several civil cases’ that can force Trump to testify in his defense as the ‘person responsible’ for the firing.

Fmr FBI Official Sues Trump For Unlawful, Unconstitutional Acts | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC
The question is though…..how many lawsuits are out there for Donald J Trumpturd. The only problem is that Trumpturd has put his Republikkkan cronies in place to protect him.
He will playthe victim and that’s a problem people might you know believe it
Bad news is that Trump has the power now and he is going after Obama’s administration.
Republicans who support him have failed to check out his resume. He has spent his lifetime embroiled in lawsuits which he usually loses or settles out of court because he has no respect for the rule of law unless it benefits him financially.
He will destroy the Republican party and the United States. Just give him a chance.
Time and time again it’s incredible to see, that literally one of the dumbest humans on this planet is the president. Only watching television, incapable of normal human interaction and lying about everything. How can anyone explain this to their children? Stop him now. #ToxicTrump #ThisIsNotAmerica
@We are all connected That tells me you NEVER listen to Trump. He gives speeches of the cuff when leaving the Whitehouse and usually makes a lot of sense.
Unfortunately the media mis-reports and outright LIES.
@CFS you are INSANE if you think his stupid “chopper talks” are A) factual , and B) coherent or well spoken
Downright Dutch Downright Dutch is a known Russian troll.
@We are all connected Proving YET AGAIN YOU DON’t listen to him.
I mis-spoke when I said “talks”.
He is answering questions from reporters. While sometimes the noise of the helicopter in the background is annoying, he is giving straight answers to reporters questions.
Yes, Trump brags at times. But if you remember Obama’s statements about a declining economy, the contrast to what we actually have is great.
Of course, we are in the longest expansion in US history.
That is Trump, despite the lack of Democrat help.
I deeply, deeply despised Trump’s incredibly petty spite in firing McCabe deliberately short of a full pension. What a petty, vicious little man! And our president??! Un-be-liev-able. Good luck, McCabe.
@Ellen Anderson Trump loves to sue like lightening. Let’s see how he likes it back. 😄
@foxdesignbuild foxdesignbuild You said it perfectly.
@Patchwork Girl gas lighting! That is the leftist game plan. Brennan used mifsud, halper, downer to try and entrap trump campaign staff. Papadolpous and carter page turned them down. Nsa whistler blower william binney said the dnc servers werent hacked, inside job. Pulizitzer prize winner seymour hersch days the data stolen was inside job by seth rich.
@Patchwork Girl you are lying. Mueller report stated that no russian channels were never established. Hopefully in a few week the first arrest will be made including brennan, mccabe, strzok, lynch, ohrs, comey
Traitor drump will never make it through all those Russian verb conjugations.
That is Funny!!!!
Putin can afford hookers who speak English… Maybe they can teach it to Trump over a covfefe. ;-]
He’ll be fine. He only knows half a dozen phrases in English, but he can blender them into an hour long rant just fine.
Virginia B. Britton, too funny! He can’t make it in English either.😁
We all seen this president target The FBI that had something to do with the Russian investigation he did a Saturday night massacre one by one
Yeah, remember Comey gave his testimony as did Mueller…. democrats still have no proof of anything… but there are a lot of corrupt people in the FBI and the DOJ and President Trump is taking them out one by one…..
Ruth Hall : Trump is literally inciting ACTUAL MASSACRES, now. On the very day he was at ground zero of a Nazi atrocity, his goons were rounding up the very people targeted in the Nazi’s, “manifesto.” Trump has all but ENSURED there will be more atrocities. He’s literally showed America that Right Wing Terrorism WORKS. He just Capitulated to a Terrorist.
Joy Phillips : You didn’t read the Mueller Report, so your ignorance is on you, girl 🙂
@Ash Roskell the mass shooters were literally inspired by Elizabeth Warren
Trump is so corrupt… he’s just putting his friends into office and doesn’t care about the American people. We need to go down the rabbit hole and get all the tea 🍵
Look at the timeline….. Democrats excused Hillary for her e-mails ahead of the time when they should have been found and by McCabe who wanted to help his DEMOCRATIC wife run for office…. ( its almost like they knew because they secretly were protecting Hillary).
So you think Trump should put people he does not know into office? Doesn’t every President put friends into office?
JFK picked Bobby.
lillipuff 702 : On the very day he was at ground zero of a Nazi atrocity, his goons were rounding up the very people targeted in the Nazi’s, “manifesto.” Trump has all but ENSURED there will be more atrocities.

lillipuff 702 : You’re making Trump’s Trolls nervous . . . Nice 👍✌️
The wheel of justice shall turn again, know the truth is always last, 2020 democrat president give him his full retirement back
Thank you for your service
it’s about time people started to sue trump for false firing!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good for you, Mr. McCabe‼️
Thats great news about McCabe! That fella has courage!
Sue G he should have done it 6 months ago.
@michelle stein-evers frankl this is the right time now.😄🦊🌻🌼🌺
Good luck Mr. McCabe, may you get everything OWED to you.
Agreed. May he get whatever it is he deserves.
He is in sooo much trouble….
He wasting his time and money, the highest court SCOTUS are corrupt as the government that appointed the judges.
@mizzypoo Obama appointed 2 of them.
Alexander NOT The Great, u think u are grandiose, lol……that would be A Criminal Indictment of CONald. Orange skin-orange suit.
trump will likely golf or leave the United States of America.
Maybe Don the Con will understand this Asset Forfeiture!
McCabe dedicated his life to this country, trump dedicated his life to no one but trump..
@Alexander The Great And you think trump is not?
@jabberwolf Russia if you’re listening, I hope you can find the 33 thousand emails.. Who was asking Russia for assistance? trump!!
@David tinch no. He is probably the most non corrupt politician in office right now.
I can’t think of a reason why Trump should be re-elected
@Alexander The Great That has to be a joke!!!
“TRUMP IS the Most “Heartless person,” I have ever witnessed!!!”
Sharon Atkinson : On the very day he was at ground zero of a Nazi atrocity, his goons were rounding up the very people targeted in the Nazi’s, “manifesto.” Trump has all but ENSURED there will be more atrocities. He’s literally showed America that Right Wing Terrorism WORKS. He just Capitulated to a Terrorist.
He will be dragged out in shackles.
Lili Bee fingers crossed
Good luck to you Mr. McCabe I and the American People are with you !! God Speed Mr. McCabe !
Best Wishes Andy McCabe, get your retirement back!
Good for Mr. McCabe for suing Trump. Without cause, the fake President had defamed McCabe repeatedly. Then, only one day before McCabe’s scheduled retirement, TwitterGuy Trump fired McCabe, a truly dastardly, even vicious act, since it robbed McCabe of his pension, a source of retirement income which McCabe had worked for and earned during more than two decades of truthful, assiduous, and dynamic work at the FBI. McCabe was deep-sixed for no good reason other than Trump’s bloody-minded mental vacuity. I hope intensely that the courts will restore McCabe’s pension to him and make Trump finally pay for his monstrous crimes and misdemeanors against the USA, its institutions and its citizens.
I hope McCabe win back his pension and gets back pay, because Trump and his administration was wrong for the way they fired him..
