Former FBI Agent Battling McCabe Speaks Out: There is a ‘Cancer’ Inside the FBI
Former FBI Supervisory Agent Robyn Gritz is speaking out about her battle with Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe.
Gritz says McCabe, as well as other top officials made her life a living hell. They ‘relentlessly retaliated’ against her as she raised in the ranks during her 16 year career at the FBI, which made her ‘physically ill’.
Sara Carter of Circa News reported:
Gritz worked her way to becoming one of the top counterterrorism agents in the bureau and was detailed to the CIA, where she was given commendations.
But Gritz said everything changed for her after she moved up the ranks.
The situation was unbearable, said Gritz, and eventually she filed an Equal Employment Opportunity Complaint [EEOC] in 2012, and an amended filing in 2014.
After filing the EEO complaint, Gritz alleges her supervisors and later McCabe retaliated against her. According to the complaint, Gritz says she only got to spend six months on detail with the CIA before being pulled back by her supervisors to the FBI.
Gritz, who is still in contact with many of her colleagues at the FBI, said some in leadership have “poisoned the 7th floor.”
“There’s a cancer there of a group of people,” Gritz said. “You’ve seen it with some of the recent reports of leaks, conflicts of interest, you see it in my case. The level of integrity is lacking. I have never seen or heard of the amount of conflicts of interest, or leading by fear.”

As previously reported, Andrew McCabe is being investigated by the Office of U.S. Counsel for violating the Hatch Act.
The Hatch Act prohibits FBI agents from campaigning in partisan races. Photos of McCabe campaigning for his wife raised questions about McCabe’s compliance with the law.
concerns came after revelations by media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, that a political action committee affiliated with Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who has ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, contributed almost $500,000 to the 2015 Virginia state Senate campaign of McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe. (She lost the election.) She also received $207,788 from the Virginia Democratic Party, which is connected to McAuliffe, a Democrat.
