Andrew McCabe raises 500,000 dollars for legal expenses

Por Damian

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe received more than 500,000 dollars in donations for his court expenses after he was fired in March following some attacks by President Donald Trump. His spokesman announced that his platform of participative financing recently stopped from accepting donations because of the success of the operation: the amount collected was more than three times higher than the initial target of $ 150,000.

"This overwhelming support in GoFundMe and these donations has left us stunned and extraordinarily grateful," McCabe said in a statement. "I will continue to denounce the injustice I have been treated with," he added. When it comes to fights, apparently McCabe will not go empty-handed this time.

Andrew McCabe was interim director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) following the dismissal of James Comey by Trump in May 2017. But less than 48 hours after his retirement, he was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

His dismissal on March 16, deprived him of a pre-retirement, an option he could have opted for if he had left the FBI after March 18, when he turned 50 years old. To justify his dismissal, the US Department of Justice argued "misconduct", highlighting particularly unauthorized disclosures to the media.

Andrew McCabe, who resigned his deputy director position in January but continued to work for the FBI, said he was another victim of Trump administration's "war" against the FBI and the special prosecutor in charge of the investigation into an alleged collusion with Russia and the president's campaign.

In retrospective, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), previously the Bureau of Investigation (BOI), is the national intelligence and safety service of the United States, and its main federal law enforcement organization. Working under the dominion of the US Department of Justice, the FBI is part of the U.S. Intelligence Community and answers to both the Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence. An important U.S. counter-terrorism, counterintelligence, and criminal investigative agency, the FBI has authority over desecrations of more than 200 types of federal offenses.
