In the two days prior to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe being fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, he was in meetings with various FBI officials appealing his termination. In those meetings, he was begging to keep his “retirement”, worth a reported $1.8 million.
During the meetings, McCabe reportedly threatened to “take others” with him, if he were fired and lost his retirement. Others would appear to imply other FBI personnel.
It is now being reported by the AP that just like Comey, he kept detailed memos of interactions with President Trump. Likely, he has other memos as well, detailing conversations with others in the FBI and elsewhere, that would implicate “others” in their plans to force President Trump from office.
From the AP:
Andrew McCabe — the former FBI deputy director just fired by the attorney general — kept personal memos regarding President Donald Trump.
That’s according to a person with direct knowledge of the situation who wasn’t authorized to discuss the memos publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
This person says the memos are similar to the ones maintained by former FBI Director James Comey, who Trump fired last May.
Comey’s series of notes detailed interactions with Trump that Comey said unnerved him.
The person with knowledge of McCabe’s situation says McCabe’s memos include details of interactions with the president, among other topics.
It’s not immediately clear whether any of the McCabe memos have been turned over to special counsel Robert Mueller or requested by Mueller.
Though the AP reports the memos dealt with President Trump, there is no reason to believe that McCabe did not keep other memos that would form the basis for “taking down” the others that he threatened in retaliation for his firing and loss of retirement pay.
If McCabe has the ability to “rat out” his fellow conspirators, then we should begin to hear shortly who he is taking down with him.
