Summary
On March 16, 2018, just twenty-six hours before his scheduled retirement from the organization he had served with distinction for more than two decades, Andrew G. McCabe was fired from his position as deputy director of the FBI. President Donald Trump celebrated on Twitter: "Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI - A great day for Democracy." Now McCabe offers a dramatic and candid account of his career, and an impassioned defense of the FBI's integrity and independence in protecting America and upholding the Constitution. McCabe started as a street agent in the FBI's New York field office, serving under Director Louis Freeh. He became an expert in two kinds of investigations that are critical to American national security: Russian organized crime -- which is inextricably linked to the Russian state -- and terrorism. Under Director Robert Mueller, McCabe led the investigations of major attacks on American soil, including the Boston Marathon bombing, a plot to bomb the New York subways, and several narrowly averted bombings of aircraft. And under James Comey, McCabe was deeply involved in the controversial investigations of the Benghazi attack, the Clinton Foundation's activities, and Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server when she was secretary of state. He recounts in detail the time between Donald Trump's November 2016 election and his firing, set against a narrative spanning two decades when the FBI's mission shifted to a new goal: preventing terrorist attacks on Americans. But as McCabe shows, right now the greatest threat to the United States comes from within, as President Trump and his administration ignore the law, attack democratic institutions, degrade human rights, and undermine the U.S. Constitution that protects every citizen. McCabe tells the true story of what the FBI is, how it works, and why it will endure as an institution of integrity that protects America
