You know when someone points out some obscure yet plausible reason why something is happening, but in reality the two are unrelated? My toxic manager had played the system so that she would get the bulk of the commissions.

Break down your interactions and minimize them. I only had to work with EK 3 times a week and sometimes it would be 2 or 1 times due to holidays and PTO. In the larger scheme of things we only worked together days out of the year. Our overall interaction in a day might add up to an hour. Dealing with her was manageable when I thought of it that way. Documenting everything can save your ass especially in a company that likes to point fingers.
You can build a case too on how you were a good and reliable employee and how your employee committed wrongful termination. Think about the bigger picture. Your manager is one person in a small part of your life.

Apparently this is a good time for my Director to come in and shake things up. In his time at our office, he changed our deal flow, set up a billion meetings and let our underperforming admins go. While my director was there I did all my duties, with no complaint and then some extra.

I lost my drive; the motivating factor that kept me going when I was self employed. I lost knowing that the work was MINE. I was okay during the transition. Sure my job is very difficult at times but it seemed fine and dandy. But I was the new kid on the block.
