CNN has hired ex-FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe as an on-air contributor.

The controversial decision has faced widespread ridicule, especially in conservative circles.

Per Fox News:
 

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.

McCabe is suing the Justice Department and the FBI over his dismissal from the bureau, claiming that the agencies bowed to political pressure from President Trump.

Now it seems McCabe will have a platform on the ratings-challenged cable network as the lawsuit moves forward. The Hill media reporter Joe Concha told Fox News that “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.”
