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.

“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,” The Hill media reporter Joe Concha said.

“His credibility is non-existent,” Concha added. “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 concluded. “This is truly a disservice to CNN viewers, which will only further plunge the network’s credibility into a black hole.”

Critics slammed CNN for this idiotic move:
