GoFundMe page for fired FBI No. 2 McCabe legal defense fund nears $500K

Published

“Andrew McCabe’s FBI career was long, distinguished, and unblemished,” the GoFundMe page’s creators wrote on the site. “He embraced the most daunting, difficult, and important challenges that the FBI and the country could assign to him over the past 21 years…His reward for that has been a termination that was completely unjustified, amidst repeated ad hominem attacks by the President of the United States.”

Though McCabe — who has been repeatedly attacked by President Donald Trump — stepped down as deputy director in late January, he remained on the federal payroll, and had planned to retire on Sunday March 18. His firing places his federal pension in jeopardy.

The FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility proposed the termination, based on the findings of the Justice Department’s inspector general. As part of the inquiry, McCabe was questioned about conversations FBI officials had with a reporter in October 2016 regarding the FBI’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation. The inspector general’s report concluded that McCabe was not completely candid in answering questions about those conversations, according to officials familiar with the report.

In statement released after the firing was announced, McCabe said: “This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally. It is part of this administration’s ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the Special Counsel investigation, which continue to this day. Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the special counsel’s work.”
