Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is following in the footsteps of his boss, fired FBI Director James Comey, inking a deal with St. Martin’s Press to write a tell-all book about his time in the Trump Administration.
McCabe was fired from the FBI last spring, just days before he was set to retire, after the FBI Inspector General discovered McCabe “lacked candor” when questioned about allowing his agents to speak to members of the media. McCabe, who is independently wealthy, famously raised $500,000 on GoFundMe from the anti-Trump “Resistance” to launch an appeal of his termination.
It seems, though, that McCabe intends to get his revenge on the Trump Administration in print, instead. Take a Look:
As Reported By The Washington Examiner:
“Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired for violating the agency’s ethics code by exhibiting a lack of candor under oath, a lack of candor when not under oath, and incorrectly providing sensitive information to the media about the agency’s Clinton Foundation probe, according to a new report.
McCabe’s action’s were first discovered by the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General, and were then corroborated by the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility.
According to the investigation, McCabe told FBI lawyer Lisa Page and FBI public affairs chief Michael Kortan to contact a Wall Street Journal reporter to correct a report published in October 2016 about large donations McCabe’s wife received from Democrats during her bid for Virginia State Senate, Fox News reports.
Page’s account to investigators was “critical” because it countered the statements made by McCabe, a source told Fox News.
Additionally, the source shared that McCabe’s firing was a result of his lack of candor concerning the Wall Street Journal reporter.
McCabe’s attorney, Michael Bromwich, pushed back on what he described as a “false narrative.”
