NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell isn’t only the network’s chief foreign affairs correspondent, she also serves as a volunteer guidance counselor to lawmakers and civil servants.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions famously fired FBI official Andrew McCabe just two days shy of his retirement. He would have been eligible for a lifetime pension, now those benefits could now be in jeopardy. But not if Mitchell can help him.
Sessions said McCabe "lacked candor − including under oath − on multiple occasions,” but that didn’t stop the NBC News star from helping Democrats come up with a plan.
“One suggestion from a McCabe supporter: if a friendly member of Congress hired him for a week he could possibly qualify for pension benefits by extending his service the extra days,” Mitchell tweeted.
