Yesterday CNN blasted Fox News for hiring Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Today CNN announced it had hired disgraced former FBI official Andrew McCabe despite the fact he perjured himself before Congress and was fired for cause from the Bureau. Do I smell mendacity?

As Fox News explained:

McCabe was famously fired by the FBI on March 16, 2018, after a Justice Department inspector general report found he had repeatedly misstated his involvement in a leak to The Wall Street Journal regarding an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation. The watchdog office referred the matter to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington, which has been investigating.

The Hill media reporter Joe Concha told Fox News

“McCabe was fired by the FBI for lying at least four times, including three times under oath” and lacks the trustworthiness needed to be taken seriously as a cable news pundit.

“His credibility is non-existent,” Concha said. “He told Anderson Cooper earlier this year he believed it was possible President Donald Trump is a Russian asset, an outrageous claim for someone of his former stature to make on national television just to promote a book.”

“If applying the Michael Flynn jail sentence [standard] regarding lying to the FBI, McCabe shouldn’t be going to CNN, he should be going to jail,” Concha added. “This is truly a disservice to CNN viewers, which will only further plunge the network’s credibility into a black hole.”

Joe, I agree with you about McCabe’s credibility, but “black hole?” You will now be called racist.

Personally, I think people are being unfair, CNN needs the extra help. It is not easy filling their programming 24/7 with vile anti-Trump hatred.

The Twitterverse was not amused:

There’s the inevitable Casablanca reference:
