Just when you thought Fall 2018 Drop-In titles were getting Stormy, there’s another: THE THREAT: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump by former FBI Deputy Director, Andrew G. McCabe, available February 12, 2019* from St. Martin’s Press and Macmillan Audio.
On March 16, 2018, just 26 hours before his scheduled retirement from the organization he had served with distinction for nearly 22 years, and after sustained and unprecedented public attacks from the President of the United States, Andrew McCabe was fired from his position as Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Now in THE THREAT, McCabe will share 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 says, “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. 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.”
In January 2016, Director James Comey (A HIGHER LOYALTY) appointed McCabe as Deputy Director, and the two worked closely on the controversial investigations of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and Russia’s efforts to undermine the presidential election. After Comey’s firing as FBI director, McCabe became Acting Director of the agency. That job put him in the room with the President, and many other leaders at the highest levels of this administration. 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.
