The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump Reviews
This book is clear, concise, interesting, and important to all Americans. I highly recommend it! Andrew McCabe writes about his career with the FBI, how the FBI functions today (particularly with regard to anti-terrorism), and most importantly-his experiences since the election of Donald Trump. With ample facts and justification, he is highly critical of the behavior of Donald J. Trump.
The critics of McCabe and his book will deny his story and work to undermine his character. I think the most c ...more
A well written book about Andrew McCabe’s rise, fall and eventual firing from the FBI 28 hours before he was set to retire (literally on Trumped up charges.)
He goes into the history of the FBI, its mission and how the agents solve crimes. The book is especially interesting when he covers Benghazi, the Boston Marathon bombing and the Mueller investigation. Throughout the book he stresses several times that the FBI’s only loyalty is to the American people and the Constitution. He worked ...more
I learned a lot. Do I believe Mr. MacCabe? I do. Can I verify- no.
The surprising element of the book is about the FBI. Less than 20% focuses on man in the White House.
Highly recommend this tightly written narrative.
Be afraid, be very afraid. But good for McCabe writing this. Kind of spoilerish, but something that happened when Rosenstein and McCabe met with the Gang of Eight in May 2017:
Now that the Gang of Eight was a crowd of two dozen in the room, I thought, the chance of this not getting back to the president was basically zero. Then Devin Nunes walked in, and the chance was less than zero.
Look who’s here, I said to Rod. Rosenstein understood. He went to talk to Nunes, pulled ...more
Just finished. This is by far the best book I’ve read of this milieu! It rings of authenticity. Very heartening to hear the story of someone who didn’t get sullied by working beside the vicious, mean spirited filth of the Trump administration. Must read for Americans who care about what this country stands for (even when we’ve failed miserably at it at times.)
McCabe concerned about 'unfair treatment' after book release delayed by FBI
Former assistant director of the FBI Frank Figliuzzi, former US attorney Chuck Rosenberg, former federal prosecutor Paul Butler, The Daily Beast’s Sam Stein, and NBC’s Carol Lee on former Acting FBI director Andrew McCabe’s new tell all that gives insight into Rod Rosenstein’s memo on the firing of James Comey

This was a good follow up to Comey's A Higher Loyalty. I may not agree with all of McCabe's politics put forth in this book, but I think he has an important perspective on the Trump admin and is definitely worth the read.
The book read like a page turner. It was great to learn all the background processes that go into FBI investigations. TV shows don't really tell all the truth. McCabe was also an excellent writer. Often government officials need help with that. Apparently he didn't.
I was particularly struck by his descriptions of the confusion and lack of decorum he experience when dealing with Sessions and Trump. The little schoolboy chairs that Trump had set up in front of his desk for people to sit in. The wh ...more
