Fired Anti-Trump FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to Publish Book Comparing President Trump to Terrorists

Fired anti-Trump FBI Deputy Drector Andrew McCabe has written a book, to be published December 4 by St. Martin’s Press, with a theme that compares President Trump as a threat to the nation on par with terrorists. The book’s title is, “The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump”.

St. Martin’s, which is also publishing Stormy Daniels’ book next month, issued a press release Tuesday about the book that includes a quote from McCabe trashing Trump:

““I wrote this book because the president’s attacks on me symbolize his
destructive effect on the country as a whole. He is undermining America’s safety and security, and
eroding public confidence in its institutions. His attacks on the most crucial institutions of government,
and on the professionals who serve within them, should make every American stand up and take notice.”

Full text of the St. Martin’s press release:

Andrew McCabe will publish a book entitled THE THREAT: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump with St. Martin’s Press on December 4, 2018, it was announced today by Jennifer Enderlin, Executive Vice President and Publisher of St. Martin’s. North American publishing rights were acquired by St. Martin’s Press Vice President and Editor in Chief, George Witte, from literary agents David Granger and Todd Shuster of Aevitas Creative Management, who represent the author. The book will be available in hardcover, ebook, and audio formats.

On March 16, 2018, just 26 hours before his scheduled retirement from the organization he had served
with distinction for nearly 22 years, and after sustained and unprecedented public attacks from the
President of the United States, Andrew McCabe was fired from his position as Deputy Director of the
FBI. Now in THE THREAT, McCabe will share a candid account of his career and an impassioned defense
of the FBI’s agents, integrity, and independence in protecting America and upholding our Constitution.

“We are thrilled and honored to be publishing Andrew McCabe’s book — destined to be a seminal record
of our times,” says Jennifer Enderlin. “THE THREAT will be candid, dramatic, and urgently newsworthy.”

McCabe’s career encompasses and reflects the modern history of the FBI, and its transformation from a
corps of cops who investigated and prosecuted crime into an intelligence agency that prevents and
deters attacks on American citizens. Starting in 1996 under Director Louis Freeh, McCabe worked in the
FBI’s New York field office, where he investigated Russian organized crime. On September 11, 2001, he
became one of many New York agents who spent months investigating the attack. Later, McCabe
worked under Director Robert Mueller leading the FBI’s investigations of major cases including the
Boston Marathon bombing, the Benghazi attack, and other terrorist incidents on US soil. He also built an interagency team to change the way the government conducted the interrogation of high value
terrorists and helped identify and target ISIS and Al Qaeda networks and leaders.

In January 2016, Director James Comey appointed McCabe as Deputy Director, and the two worked
closely on the controversial investigations of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and Russia’s
efforts to undermine the presidential election. After Comey’s firing as FBI director, McCabe became
Acting Director of the agency. That job put him in the room with the President, and many other leaders
at the highest levels of this administration. A series of troubling, contradictory, and often bizarre
conversations with these figures led McCabe to a conclusion of vital interest to every American citizen:
the actions of this President and his administration undermine the FBI and the entire intelligence community; they pose a clear and present danger to the country.

Andrew McCabe says, “I wrote this book because the president’s attacks on me symbolize his
destructive effect on the country as a whole. He is undermining America’s safety and security, and
eroding public confidence in its institutions. His attacks on the most crucial institutions of government, and on the professionals who serve within them, should make every American stand up and take


About the Author
Andrew G. McCabe served as deputy director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from February 2016
to January 2018. He began his career at the FBI in 1996, working first as a street agent on the Eurasian
Organized Crime Task Force, and eventually as its supervisor. Later, he led the FBI’s Counterterrorism
Division, the National Security Branch, and the Washington Field Office, and was the first director of the
High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group, which developed new methods for lawfully and effectively questioning suspected terrorists. He lives in Virginia with his wife Jill, their two children and a dog.”

McCabe was fired earlier this year by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. An Inspector General’s report concluded Mcabe leaked information to the press and then lied about it to FBI officials. The IG referred McCabe for prosecution, reported NBC News:

The Justice Department’s inspector general has recommended a criminal investigation into whether former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe lied to federal officials about a leak to a newspaper reporter.

McCabe was fired in March, and last week a report from the inspector general concluded that he repeatedly lied when asked about the leak of information regarding the FBI’s efforts to look into the finances of the Clinton Foundation in 2016.

Legal sources familiar with the matter revealed Thursday that Inspector General Michael Horowitz recommended in January that McCabe be investigated on suspicion of lying. That same month, FBI Director Christopher Wray demoted McCabe from his position as deputy director.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe 26 hours before he was to retire, concluding that he approved an “unauthorized disclosure to the news media” and, when asked about it, “lacked candor, including under oath, on multiple occasions.”

McCabe’s lawyer, Michael Bromwich, downplayed the recommendation. “We were advised of the referral within the past few weeks,” he said. “Although we believe the referral is unjustified, the standard for an IG referral is very low.”…

McCabe also drew scrutiny over the 2015 political campaign of his wife, Dr. Jill McCabe, that was funded with over $600,000 in donations by close Hillary Clinton ally, then Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.

An article by the Capital Research Center’s Dr. Steven J. Allen explained the corrupt machinations behind the recruiting and funding of political novice Jill McCabe by the McAuliffe-Clinton political machine:

…On March 7, 2015—just five days after America learned about Hillary’s server—the McCabes met with McAuliffe. On March 9, Dr. McCabe’s opponent suddenly dropped out. On social media, he referred bitterly to “the smoldering ashes of my nascent Virginia Senate campaign.”

McAuliffe’s Common Good VA Political Action Committee eventually gave the McCabe campaign $467,500, the third-highest contribution among the 37 it made to legislative races that cycle. Counting money from the state Democratic Party, McCabe’s campaign got a total of $675,288 from funds controlled by McAuliffe.

Dr. McCabe lost by five points, which was lamented by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, FBI agents who were having an affair and would become members of the Mueller impeachment team. Explaining the defeat, Strzok texted Page that the area “is being gentrified, but it’s still largely ignorant hillbillys [sic].”

…at the time of the recruitment of McCabe’s wife and the funding of her campaign, McCabe was on track to soon become the FBI’s No. 3, then its No. 2 man. Terry McAuliffe knew exactly what he was doing, and who he was dealing with.”

McCabe follows his former boss, fired FBI Director James Comey, in publishing an anti-Trump book. Comey, who was fired by Trump, came out with his book attacking the President, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership”, last April.
