McCabe spent over 2 decades working for the FBI. He was also one of the biggest opponents of President Donald Trump in his own administration. He got fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions last year.

It happened just hours before his planned retirement. Now McCabe is challenging it in a court - he filed a lawsuit claiming that firing him was only because "he was not politically loyal" to Trump.

But the Justice Department has a different opinion on why McCabe was fired and says that it happened because he "improperly" disclosed information to the press about an ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton.

McCabe is also not the only person from the administration that got hired by CNN. Sarah Flores, former Justice Department was also appointed this year. Hiring Flores, known conservative, as a "political editor" quickly backlashed from some Democrats and CNN decided to change her position into a "political analyst."

It's not sure how "useful" will be McCabe for CNN, but he is already well-known as an opponent of Trump and his policies. President Trump, on the other hand, accused McCabe of biased agenda against him. He also didn't like that McCabe was accusing him of collusion with Russia in US elections and that McCabe considered, like he said in his 60 Minutes interview, starting impeachment procedure over it.

“DOJ just issued the McCabe report - which is a total disaster,” wrote Trump in April 2018. “He LIED! LIED! LIED! McCabe was totally controlled by Comey - McCabe is Comey!! No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes,” expressed his anger back then President Donald Trump.

In other recent employment status updates, Fox News hired former White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders.
