The Trump regime has thrown all accepted professional procedure and decorum out the window. Late last night, Attorney General Jeff Sessions (read: his thug boss Donald J. Trump) fired acting FBI director Andrew McCabe (details here).

Guess how McCabe learned he was fired? This is yet another example of government by ratf*ck:

A representative for McCabe said he learned from a press release that he had been fired by Sessions. A Justice Department spokesperson pushed back, saying, “Mr. McCabe and his attorney were informed in advance of any news media.”

McCabe’s representative said he received an email on his FBI account shortly before the Justice Department notified the media, but he was not regularly checking that account, since he was on leave from duties at the bureau.

The DOJ pushback is what the law enforcement community refers to as a “lame-@ss excuse.” Moreover, it is yet another indication of obstruction of justice on the part of Trump targeting McCabe, a witness in the Mueller Russiagate probe.

Three months ago, Trump made it all too clear that he was attempting to intimidate McCabe:

How can one not think that Trump is targeting witnesses in a heavy-handed campaign to interfere with a federal investigation? #DrainTheSwamp indeed — it is long past time for Democrats and Republicans of good conscience to start talking impeachment, conviction, and removal of Trump.
