Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe who was fired on March 16, two days before he planned to retire on his 50th birthday has now launched an official legal defense fund. McCabe raised over $12,000 in the first hour the GoFundMe went live.
The GoFundMe page is seeking $150,000 for McCabe’s legal defense in the face of congressional inquiries and a probe into his conduct by the Justice Department’s inspector general, as well as “any potential lawsuits he might consider.”
“Unfortunately, the need for a legal defense fund is a growing reality. Media reports indicate that at a minimum, there are a number of congressional inquiries that he will be required to respond to, as well as the broader Office of the Inspector General (OIG) investigation that is ongoing, and any potential lawsuits he might consider,” the GoFundMe page reads.
“His reward for that has been a termination that was completely unjustified, amidst repeated ad hominem attacks by the President of the United States,” the fundraiser page reads.
His legal team, which is led by former Justice Department Inspector General Michael Bromwich, is allegedly still working to figure out what his pension and benefits will be following his firing.
A guy with an 11 million dollar net worth starts a go fund me page, even though he got caught breaking the law big time? Unbelievable.
McCabe is rather wealthy so that McCabe does not need the publics help in paying for a legal defense. That McCabe is trying to start a legal defense suggest that he is actually guilty of one or more criminal incidents while he was at the FBI.
