Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is set to release a book on his time in the agency, with a focus on the administration of President Donald Trump, The Washington Post reports.
McCabe, who was fired by Trump only 26 hours before he was eligible to retire, has written a book titled “The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump,” which will be published by St. Martin’s Press.
According to the publisher, McCabe’s book will provide 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.”
McCabe’s position “put him in the room with the president, and many other leaders at the highest levels of this administration,” according to the book announcement.
“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.”
“I wrote this book because the president’s attacks on me symbolize his destructive effect on the country as a whole,” The former FBI official added in a statement.
“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.”
