Skip to comments.Andrew McCabe irks some CNN colleagues: ‘I have no sympathies for him‘

CNN contributor Andrew McCabe is making waves at the cable news network after a U.S. attorney on Thursday recommended moving ahead with potential charges against the FBI honcho-turned-pundit.
Some CNN staffers were reportedly aghast when the network hired McCabe in late August, simply because he'd been fired from the FBI for lying. Now that charges against McCabe are seemingly looming, some of the shock has turned to anger and confusion.
A current CNN on-air personality told Fox News this week that "it erodes our journalistic credibility to have so many highly anti-Trump, former Obama DOJ/security officials without a semblance of balance, specifically pointing to pundits Samantha Vinograd, Jim Sciutto, Asha Rangappa, Juliette Kayyem and James Clapper, along with McCabe.
Its hard to see the justification for hiring him initially since it was publicly documented hes, best case, a liar, the on-air personality added. How will CNN handle it if hes also soon indicted?
A second current CNN personality told Fox News on Thursday that many liberal-leaning staffers feel McCabe is somewhat of a freedom fighter who was unfairly targeted by the Trump administration. This was transparent on Thursday when CNN dispatched its top legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin, to defend his friend McCabe while downplaying the potential charges.

That’s an oxymoron as far as I am concerned.
“it erodes our journalistic credibility to have so many highly anti-Trump, former Obama DOJ/security officials without a semblance of balance,
CNN had credibility? When was that? Maybe before Ted and Jane shacked up?
My conspiracy theory is that CNN is a deep Israeli state plot to help Trump by taking the Left off the cliffs.
Why do I think McCabe will be leaving CNN soon?
If Asha Rangappa wasn’t such a good sock puppet for the left I’d imagine her walking barefoot down some sh!t trail in India swatting a water buffalo.

IDEOLOGY behind TED TURNER'S CNN...
Trump has blown the doors off of every news organization. People cannot ignore the bias like they could before.
Whats better, is that people are canceling their cable and funding these liberals less. This must continue!
If you have linger ling questions on how to migrate back to an antenna or streaming, ask me.
“he’d been fired from the FBI for lying.”
That would be a resume bullet at cnn would it not?
No doubt about it. Andrew was actively fighting to oppose freedom. Andy was there to crush the Trump supporters.
That is sooooo funny!
Give him his own show?
Only reason this guy was hired, IMHO, by CNN, is so that when he gets indicted they can try to spin it as a journalist coming under attack ....
Mark my words on this one
McCabe is a perfect match for CNN’s complete lack of journalistic credibility.
How will they handle his indictment and firing? By ignoring it and bashing Trump instead.
OK so never. I tried to give Ted and his minions the benefit of the doubt
