Meet Andrew G. McCabe

  • February 21, 2019

The author of The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump comes to DC on Sat., Feb. 23rd, at 1PM.

Meet Andrew G. McCabe

McCabe started working at the FBI in 1996 and served in many capacities, from street agent on the Eurasian Organized Crime Task Force to leading the Counterterrorism Division, the National Security Branch, and the Washington Field Office as well as serving as the first director of the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group. Yet that estimable career came to a sudden end when Trump fired McCabe on March 16, 2018. In this book McCabe refutes Trump’s assertion that the firing was “A great day for Democracy.” In fact, as McCabe shows, Trump’s action was just the opposite. Giving a detailed insider’s view of the FBI, McCabe charts the Bureau’s last 20 years, during which time its most important task became protecting the country from terrorists — though now perhaps the major threat to Constitutional rights is the Trump administration itself.
