An online fundraiser for recently fired Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe tripled its initial goal over the weekend; raising over $540,000 after asking for donations following his sudden dismissal from the agency.
“The outpouring of support on GoFundMe has been simply overwhelming and has led to contributions that have left us stunned and extraordinarily grateful,” said McCabe.
“I never imagined that I would need to rely on this type of assistance. The fact is that if I am going to continue taking a stand against the unfair way I have been treated, I will need the help of a talented and courageous team behind me,” he added.
Attorney General Sessions suddenly fired Andrew McCabe last month, following an impending Inspector General report that claimed the Deputy Director had violated federal guidelines during his tenure at the agency.
“Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI – A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!” tweeted the President after his removal.
