Ex-deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe has released a public statement in response to his termination from the Justice Dept.
McCabe was set to formally retire on Sunday.
In his letter, McCabe explicitly condemns the Trump administration and Jeff Sessions. In the letter, McCabe declares that his firing is part of a broader assault on the FBI and the intelligence community by the President.
"The OIG’s focus on me and this report became a part of an unprecedented effort by the Administration, driven by the President himself, to remove me from my position, destroy my reputation, and possibly strip me of a pension that I worked 21 years to earn.”
