On Friday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe shortly before his retirement. This prompted a tweet from President Trump, which in turn triggered Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., who seemed to channel Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell with a tweet that seemed somewhat threatening.
“Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI – A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!” Trump tweeted.
Should Congress Remove Biden from Office?
Swalwell responded: “Gloat now, but you will be fired soon. And it’s not going to be done cowardly, as you’ve done to so many who’ve served you. There’s a storm gathering, Mr. President, and it’s going to wipe out you and your corrupt organization all the way down to the studs.”

Reaction was pretty much what one might expect:
Dan Bongino responded: “Someone get this snowflake a tissue please. He’s crying in a safe space right now because Hill Democrats prefer their police state tactics to go unchallenged. Suck it up buttercup, justice is coming.”
Swalwell, by the way, is the far-left Democrat who once accused Tucker Carlson of working for Vladimir Putin and endangering national security.
