ANDREW MCCABE/FBI/JUSTICE DEPARTMENT/LAWSUIT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe filed suit Thursday [8-8-19] against the FBI and Justice Department, claiming that his March 2018 ouster — on the day he planned to retire after a 21-year career — was politically motivated retaliation driven by President Donald Trump, who was angry at McCabe’s role in the investigation of his campaign’s links to Russia…The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington, comes just two days after former FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok filed a similar lawsuit, alleging that Trump’s vendetta against him led to his unceremonious firing, despite a formal disciplinary process that recommended a less severe punishment. Strzok is seeking his old job back or compensation for his lost pay and benefits, while McCabe is seeking the reinstatement of his full retirement benefits.”

ANDREW MCCABE/FBI/JUSTICE DEPARTMENT/LAWSUIT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Andrew G. McCabe, the former F.B.I. deputy director who was fired for statements he made about communications between the bureau and the press, sued the F.B.I. and the Justice Department on Thursday [8-8-19], alleging that the dismissal was retaliatory and politically motivated. The Justice Department engaged in a ‘politically motivated and retaliatory demotion in January 2018 and public firing in March 2018,’ Mr. McCabe said in his lawsuit. He added that President Trump ‘purposefully and intentionally’ pushed the Justice Department to demote and terminate him as part of an ‘unconstitutional plan’ to discredit and remove Justice Department and F.B.I. employees who were ‘deemed to be his partisan opponents.’ Mr. McCabe, 51, was also the subject of a scathing Justice Department inspector general report that accused him of violating the bureau’s media policy when he authorized the disclosure of information to the press and of misleading investigators about what he had done.”

ANDREW MCCABE/FBI/JAMES COMEY/RUSSIA INVESTIGATION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Former acting-FBI Director Andrew McCabe said Thursday [2-21-19] that top lawmakers ‘knew exactly’ that the FBI had opened a counterintelligence inquiry into President Donald Trump when they were briefed on the status of the Russia investigation shortly after the 2017 firing of FBI Director James Comey. McCabe, in an interview with reporters linked to the continuing rollout of his new book, offered additional details surrounding the bureau’s extraordinary action against the president and the secret briefing provided to Congress’ Gang of Eight outlining the bureau’s decision…While opening such an inquiry would have served as a blunt acknowledgment that federal investigators regarded the president as a possible threat to national security, McCabe said this week that none of the lawmakers objected to the action. McCabe said the investigative action was ultimately prompted by Comey’s firing and Trump’s alleged efforts to persuade Comey to drop the agency’s investigation into Russian contacts involving former national security adviser Michael Flynn.”

2016 ELECTION/ANDREW MCCABE/FBI/JAMES COMEY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Congressional leaders did not object when they were informed two years ago that the FBI had opened a counterintelligence investigation into President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia, Andrew McCabe, the bureau’s former acting director, said Tuesday [2-19-19]. In an interview on NBC’s ‘Today’ show, McCabe said the secret briefing before the group of lawmakers known as the Gang of Eight occurred in the chaotic days of 2017 after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who led the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. McCabe said the president’s action, in part, prompted him to order the inquiry into whether Trump acted on behalf of the Kremlin and posed a possible national security threat to the country. While briefing lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., McCabe said none of the members opposed the action ‘not on legal grounds, not on constitutional grounds or based on the facts.'”

ANDREW MCCABE/MEDIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “A memoir by a fired former deputy director of the FBI? In normal times, it might not attract much attention. But in the Trump years, it becomes a best seller. Andrew McCabe’s ‘The Threat’ reached No. 1 on Amazon’s best selling books list on Monday [2-18-19], one day before its official release. ‘The Threat’ bumped Michelle Obama’s book ‘Becoming,’ which has been at the top of the chart almost every day since it came out last November. Sales have been fueled by McCabe’s interview on ’60 Minutes,’ excerpts published by numerous news outlets, and a controversy over his criticism of President Donald Trump. It is just the latest in a long line of books to benefit from interest and fears about the Trump presidency. The president’s anti-McCabe tweets may have boosted sales, too, although it’s hard to say for sure. The tweets certainly drove additional news coverage, causing heightened awareness of the book.”

ANDREW MCCABE/ELECTION/FBI/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump claimed Tuesday [2-19-19] that he never called Andrew McCabe’s wife a ‘loser,’ attempting to rebut the account of the former FBI deputy director, who said the president used the term to describe his wife over her failed campaign for Virginia’s state Legislature…McCabe, who worked for the FBI for 21 years, was fired last March for allegedly lying to investigators about his interactions with reporters. The former FBI deputy director, who is on a press tour to promote his new tell-all book about his time serving in Trump’s administration, said in an interview that aired Sunday [2-17-19] that Trump asked the then-acting FBI director about what it was like for his wife losing her state Senate race…Jill McCabe in 2015 ran for but did not win a state Senate seat in Virginia, accepting nearly $675,000 from the Virginia Democratic Party and groups connected to then-Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a close ally of Hillary Clinton.”

ANDREW MCCABE/FBI/RUSSIA INVESTIGATION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump is lashing out at key officials involved in the Russia probe, namely former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and the current deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein. In an interview with CBS’ ’60 Minutes’ that aired Sunday [2-17-19], McCabe described Rosenstein as having raised the prospect of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. Trump says McCabe and Rosenstein ‘look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught.’ Trump tweeted Monday: ‘This was the illegal and treasonous ‘insurance policy’ in full action!’ Rosenstein issued a denial of McCabe’s account last year. He said any suggestion that he had ever advocated for the removal of the president ‘is absolutely false.'”

ANDREW MCCABE/DEMS/FBI/GOP/HOUSE OF REPS/JUSTICE DEPARTMENT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “House Republicans have begun the process to subpoena the Justice Department for the memos written by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe that reportedly detail the explosive comments reportedly made by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year about President Donald Trump, according to a Democratic aide. House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, of Virginia, notified committee Democrats on Tuesday [9-25-18] that he intends to issue the subpoenas, as required by committee rules. Conservative allies of the President in Congress amplified their calls to release the memos after The New York Times and other news outlets reported last week that they include descriptions of Rosenstein discussing invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. Rosenstein also reportedly suggested that he or other officials wear a wire in conversations with the President in the days following the firing of FBI Director James Comey last year.”

ANDREW MCCABE/FBI/MEDIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, warning that President Donald Trump is undermining U.S. security, has written a book on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s efforts to safeguard the United States, his publisher said on Tuesday [9-18-18]. ‘The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump,’ covers McCabe’s 22-year career with the FBI, including his role in investigating the 2001 al Qaeda attacks on New York and Washington and probing Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. election, the publisher, St. Martin’s Press, said in a statement. The book will be available on Dec. 4…McCabe has denied the accusations against him and charged that he was facing retaliation from the Trump administration. He has said he believes he was politically targeted because he corroborated former FBI Director James Comey’s claims that Trump tried to pressure Comey into killing the Russia probe.”
