Jill McCabe Speaks Out about Trump’s ‘Destructive Lies’ to Discredit Her And Husband

Jill McCabe, wife of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, broke her silence for the first time since coming under relentless attack from President Trump, accusing him of spreading “destructive lies” about her during what she described as a one-and-a-half-year “nightmare.”

In a Washington Post op-ed published Monday, McCabe defended her and her husband’s integrity and dismissed as “utterly absurd” the president’s suggestions that the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails had been compromised because she accepted political donations from groups connected to longtime Clinton friend, then-Virginia Gov. McAluiffe.

“Andrew’s involvement in the Clinton investigation came not only after the contributions were made to my campaign but also after the race was over,” she wrote.

Jill McCabe, an emergency room pediatrician, described herself as “an accidental politician” who decided to run for a Virginia state Senate seat as a Democrat because she wanted to expand Medicaid.

“That decision — plus some twisted reporting and presidential tweets — ended up costing my husband, Andrew, his job and our family a significant portion of his pension my husband had worked hard for over 21 years of federal service,” she wrote. “For the past year and a half of this nightmare, I have not been free to speak out about what happened. Now that Andrew has been fired, I am.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe last month, less than two days before he was set to retire, on claims of making an unauthorized disclosure to the media and “lack of candor under oath.”

Trump’s campaign to discredit the FBI gained traction among allies largely because of the president’s suggestion that the donation to McCabe’s wife compromised the Clinton email investigation.

To have my personal reputation and integrity and those of my family attacked this way is beyond horrible,” Jill McCabe wrote. “It feels awful every day. It keeps me up nights. I made the decision to run for office because I was trying to help people. Instead, it turned into something that was used to attack our family, my husband’s career and the entire FBI.”

The McCabe family more than tripled its fundraising goal in just three days to help pay for legal fees connected to future Department of Justice inspector general investigation, congressional inquiries and potential lawsuits.
