Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s new book will address Trump’s attacks: report

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has reportedly signed a book deal, reports The Hill.

According to his publisher, St. Martin’s Press, the title of his tell-all is, “The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump.”

McCabe said in a statement released through the company: “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.”

The book, currently scheduled for a December release, will include accounts of “a series of troubling, contradictory, and often bizarre conversations” held with Trump and other officials in the administration, reports the Associated Press.

Notably, McCabe was fired in March just before his already-established retirement date.

A report from the Justice Department inspector general asserted that the then-deputy director had “lied about his disclosures to media,” notes The Hill.

McCabe has denied the allegation and is suing for wrongful termination.

In the eyes of Trump, McCabe is among those emblematic of the alleged corruption in the bureau.

The president wrote in an August tweet: “Will the FBI ever recover it’s once stellar reputation, so badly damaged by Comey, McCabe, Peter S and his lover, the lovely Lisa Page, and other top officials now dismissed or fired? So many of the great men and women of the FBI have been hurt by these clowns and losers!”
