On March 16,2018, just twenty-six hours before his scheduled retirement from the organization he had served with distinction for more than two decades, Andrew G McCabe was fired from his position as deputy director of the FBI. President Donald Trump celebrated on Twitter “Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hardworking men and women of the FBI-A great day for democracy.”

In The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age Of Terror and Trump, Andrew G McCabe offers a dramatic and candid account of his career, and an impassioned defense of the FBI’s agents, and of the institution’s integrity and independence in protecting America and upholding or Constitution.

McCabe started as a street agent in the FBI’s New York field office, serving under director Lois Freech. He became an expert in two kinds of investigations that are critical to American National Security: Russian organized crime-which is inextricably linked to the Russian state-and terrorism. Under director Robert Mueller, McCabe led the investigations of major attacks on American soil, including The Boston Marathon bombing, a plot to bomb the New York subways, and several narrowly averted bombings of aircraft. And under James Comey, McCabe was deeply involved in the controversial investigations of Benghazi attack, the Clinton Foundation’s activities and Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.The Threat with Andrew McCabe

The Threat recounts in compelling detail the time between Donald Trump’s November 2016 election and McCabe’s firing, set against a page-turning narrative spanning two decades when the FBI’s mission shifted to a new goal: preventing terrorist attacks on Americans. But as McCabe shows, right now the greatest threat to The United States comes from within, as President Trump and his administration ignores the law, attack democratic institutions, degraded human rights, and undermine the U.S. Constitution that protects every citizen.

Important, revealing, and powerfully argued, The Threat tells the story of what the FBI is, how it works, and why it will endure as an institution of integrity that protects America.

Kirkus Review Of The Threat

In a news-making memoir, former FBI Head McCabe recounts his interactions with a corrupt government-our-own-that uses “the power of public office to undermine legal authority and to denigrate law enforcement.”

Early on the author reproduces his 1995 FBI employment application, which cites an arrest for purchasing alcohol with a fake ID and calls him an average student in law school, if one with “a strong interest in criminal law.”

That much is abundantly clear, as he recounts ho he secured a post with the FBI, “the nemesis of criminals.” It is also clear which Andrew McCabe and Donald Trumpside McCabes loyalties lie. After Donald Trump fired FBI director James Comey in an “impoverished and slapdash” travesty, he installed McCabe as acting director-and then fired him, too, just shy of his being able to retire with a pension. (A lawsuit is pending). Throughout the book, news-worthy moments come fast and furious: Trump is frenetic and angry. And his style and signaling fuel “a strain of insanity in public dialogue that has been long in development.” He is vindictive, insecure, and corrupt. More than once, he demands to know who McCabe voted for. He governs by tweet and insult: As the author stalwartly notes of tweets directed to him, “it is meaningless to be called a liar by the most prolific liar I have ever encountered. More than news breaking, is McCabe’s matter-of-fact assurance that Russia interfered in The U.S. election in a way that put Trump in office. No matter the degree of collusion on the American side. Trump has consistently side with Russia against the American intelligence community. “He thought that North Korea did not have the capability to launch [intercontinental] missiles.” writes the author. “He said he knew this because Vladimir Putin had told him so.”


Evenhandedly, McCabe assures readers that the threat of the title will not prevail thanks to the rule of law, even if Trump is doing all he can to destroy it. Somber, urgent, necessary reading for anyone paying-attention to what is happening right now before our very eyes.

  1. I remember reading about this in the newspapers.  I’m always looking out for a new book to be interested in and I think I found it.  Have you read this book yourself?  It would be interesting to get an inside look from McCabes point of view.  Always to read more than one book on any topic.  You made this post very exciting.  Does this come in ebook form?  Well worth looking into.  Keep us informed on any more books surrounding such topics.

  2. Hi Bobbi,

    As always, the political books you recommend and review are outstanding. I find the book, “The Threat By Andrew McCabe” to be very intriguing. In an era where the United States is governed by a lunatic such as Donald Trump, the need for books like The Threat is high.

    I am eager to read it as I find astonishing that a fired FBI agent writes insider secrets and information and how the president of the biggest superpower governs.

    I will bookmark your blog!



    1. Thanks Jordan for your comment, the more that I look into the corruption right under our noises, it gets worse and worse, not everyone is a liar as Trump says, that just makes him look more guilty every time he says that. I am sick of him always playing the victim. He brings the trouble on himself, by himself from his actions.

  3. There seem to be quite a good number of perspective on the president and his people and I am not at all, surprise to find this account just as disturbing as the others. McCabe served his country well so I am confident that his perspective counts for something.

    Glad you shared

    1. Thanks Rhain for your comment, and it becomes more disturbing the more investigation that I do, let alone the people who are right there and see it happening everyday. Just DISTURBING.

  4. I am glad to see your article. Your article is really unique and informative. I like reading books a lot. I also know a little bit about Donald Trump and Andrew McCabe.

    1. Thank you Sabrinamou for your comment, it is a wonderfully informative book and takes about two days through Amazon, which is the link on this page, I had another person who bought Blowout and it took 2 days to get to her as well. I have checked with many in The U.S. and if you live in the U.S. you can be assured no more than 3 days and more than likely in two.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful and informative article with us.

    According to the situation of America, so much information needs to know where to create some threat for America which is disclosed by Threat book by Andrew McCabe. I have already read The Threat book which provided me so much sensational information. By reading this book I found out about Phoebe’s agent. Here I personally like Andrew McCabe’s books by which I got so much necessary information about our around the country. In my opinion, I hope, The Threat book by Andrew McCabe will be giving us awareness.

    1. Thank you Md Millat, I agree, we as a nation need to open our eyes and ears and pay attention to what is really going on in The Trump Administration and our Congressmen and Women and with the Senators that are supposedly our eyes and ears in Washington.

  6. Thanks Bobbi for sharing this book by titled The Threat by Andrew McCabe. I think I got the information when it all happened but it was never clear to me what truly happened, reading this post has given a clear insight. From what I have seen so far, I can conclude that Donald Trump is corrupt and not trustworthy in any way. We hope nemesis catch up with him really soon.

    1. Thank you MrBiizy for your comment, he does not seem to be the most trust worthy person, especially as a President of The United States of America. He does this stuff to himself, with his tweet storms and his criminal behavior. I wish he would STOP, or have someone talk to him, which from what we all understand, can’t be done. He is always playing the victim, but he creates the problems himself.
