Why Take Pension Away From Career Civil Servant Andrew McCabe?

The firing of Andrew McCabe days before his full pension vests just lit another fire in the Mueller investigation “Close-up of a match on fire” by Yaoqi LAI on Unsplash

I just don’t get it. What lurks within the heart of a government official who would take away the pension of a civil servant who gave more than 20 years of his life to the government?

It makes no sense to me. Simply cold and heartless is about all I can make of Attorney General Jeff Sessions move to fire Andrew McCabe two days before his full pension vests.
