  1. In an outstanding Brookings Report “Political appointees as barriers to government efficiency and effectiveness” (J. Hudak, G. Wallack, 2016) retrieved from it shows with hard Return on Investment (ROI) numbers how DE-politization of Office of Inspectors Generals (OIGs) yeilds tremendous taxpayer benefit. This report provides hard data that proves that a major change is needed in the Federal Government that minimizes political appointments and politicization throughout. The data proves that it will yield tremendous cost savings and benefit to the taxpayers and government efficiency to keep the civil service out of politics. Our representatives in the US Congress need to keep the DOJ, CIA, DHS, DoD and the rest of the bureaucracy on a very tight leash using OIGs more effectively and by minimizing to an absoulte minimum political appointees throughout government.

  2. Well, I just had a trump supporter reply to comment recently, and he came across as believing trump could tell no lies or do no wrong! He sounded just like the blind loyal ignoramus who believes trump can walk on water! Well John Lalawethika, you couldn't be more ignorant! That's why you probably voted for trump! The ignorance you seen in him is what his supporters see in themselves! And his supporters are not exactly the beacons of intelligence! I have yet to actually speak to any trump supporter with and educational value! I mean, it seems like you're all "Stuck in Stupid"! At least the Democrats are by far more educated than you could hope to be! I don't think that home schooling for republicans works to well!

  3. If McCabe had been straight , recused himself when necessary and not lied to his own agency he would ve retired in good standing with his pension . Instead he chose a different route.

  4. Come on people, you've got it all wrong, we all know republicans never tell lies! They have always told the truth about everything at all times! It's just not like them to lie! I just can't believe they "Ever" lied about anything! They are so squeaky clean! And if I were to go back into their history and roll the video tape of their lives, I am certain it will show that they've never told a single lie! So we have to take them at their word!

  5. Poor McCabe. He clearly didn't do anything wrong because committing treason isn't wrong if you're doing it to cover up your own crimes and elect someone you know will pardon you. Don't worry Comey will defend you. NO ONE questions Comey on the left or the right. He's so damn honorable he has not stopped defending himself like a maniac, because he fears the grave consequences, not of any personal wrongdoing of his own of course, but because Trump is literally Putin's puppet. And political puppets are never to be trusted because they're so stupid that they allowed their own fate to be intertwined with powerful elites that are usually much stupider than they appear, thus they do highly irrational things to save their own skin. Extremely careless.

  6. And surely McCabe must have known republicans don't like law enforcement especially when "they" are the ones breaking the law! What criminals like law enforcement if they are the ones breaking the law?

  7. McCabe, accept the consequences of your actions. You lied under oath. That's illegal. If it is a snippet of your values, then can we assume that you were this way your whole career. Also, stop giving my tax dollars away to those who are documented as underperformers per Human Resources. He broke the law.. If this happened to anyone else, we would lose our pension and go to jail!

  8. Oh right he wasn't fired due to the fact that he lied to the FBI while being questioned! Just like any other FBI agent you lie you're fired regardless of your stature. These people were using the FBI for their own political agenda. Jail them.

  9. As long as the idiot buffoon in the WH is firing republicans, it's ok by me! I just love to see the republican "Dogs of War" turn on each other like a pack of wild hyenas!

  10. Your credibility was gone when you demanded ACTUAL FBI agents falsify their 302 reports. You will find yourself in jail (at the very least) and more appropriately swinging from the proverbial yardarm.

  11. – Won't it be interesting if someone's leaked emails surface which reveal that CBS/MSM knew about the coup against the POTUS and are now actively colluding to cover it up? Possibly the entire MSM could be charged under ALIEN & SEDITION/RICO statutes for aiding & abetting treason, along with the deep state plotters.- CALLING PROJECT VERITAS !@@!

  12. No its not an effort to quiet the Russia probe. It's an effort to rid the FBI of a guy who was born with two heads like every male. McCabe just used the wrong head to think with. Happens often when power and politics are involved.

  13. And his firing was well earned.  He did his best to use his position to fight Trump and use his position to undermine the President.  Not only should he be fired he has committed FELONY violations of law.  He thought all would be good when EVERYONE knew Hitlery Clinton would win…  But she LOST and he put all his cards on a loosing horse then supported that loosing game after the loss.  He gets what he earned.  He betrayed the public trust and deserves to loose his pension as well as his freedom.  He is a deep state CRIMINAL.  His sacking is draining the swamp that Trump promised. MAGA!

    Are you morons serious? #FakeNews

  15. More Fake news here. Dont worry CBS, you and the rest of the MSM will have to deal the the govt after all the traitors are exposed and removed.

  16. Right now this world 🌎 is a ball 🏀 of confusion never seen nothing like this in all the days of my life we need God to straighten this mess out

  17. These so called "news networks", they're propaganda and lies will soon be in the waste bin of history. Trash is what it is. I feel sorry for any minions still believing a single word from these disgusting liars.

  18. McCabe, you idiot… and your crooked cronies, the dumbascraps and Clinton crime family have completely undermined the American law system.  You are a corrupt POS.
