Andrew McCabe, the fired FBI Deputy Director has launched an official legal defense fund to help him explore a series of inquiries into his actions at the law enforcement agency. Kind of like Stormy Daniels McCabe too has started a page to help pay legal fees.
The GoFundMe page is seeking $150,000 for McCabe’s legal defense in the face of congressional inquiries, a probe into his conduct by the Justice Department’s inspector general, and “any potential lawsuits he might consider.”
The GoFundMe page reads, “Andrew McCabe’s FBI career was long, distinguished, and unblemished. His reward for that has been a termination that was completely unjustified, amidst repeated ad hominem attacks by the President of the United States.”
Former Justice Department Inspector General Michael Bromwich is leading McCabe’s legal team.
Bromwich is an attorney at the D.C. law firm Robbins, Russell, Englert, Orseck, Untereiner & Sauber LLP.
Fewer than 2 days before his planned retirement, McCabe was abruptly fired this month. He is no longer eligible to collect his pension.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced McCabe’s firing, saying an inspector general’s report concluding that he leaked information to the press and misled internal investigators at the Justice Department.
McCabe has said that he was fired, however, due to his role as a crucial witness in the special counsel investigation into Russian election meddling and any possible conspiracy with President Trump‘s campaign.
McCabe’s GoFundMe page says that the proceeds will not go to fighting for his pension and benefits.
It said that any money remaining from the fund will be donated to a charity of his choosing.
