The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump Book Review

The FBI is one of the most important aspects of our legal system. Without their tireless work, this country will be a dangerous place to live.

It doe not help when certain members of the executive branch question the motives of the members of the FBI.

Andrew G. McCabe worked for the FBI for over twenty years. After succeeding James Comey, he was fired in 2018. His new book, The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump, is the story of his career and the last few years on the job from his perspective.

Part memoir and part retrospective, the book examines how the current administration (both during the 2016 election and presently), is using every tool in the box to undermine the reputation and hard work that the FBI puts in to protect this country.

Unlike a certain President who is apt to tell lies and half-truths, Mr. McCabe comes off as honest and respectable, even if it makes him look bad in the process. From my perspective, this is just another reason why you know who is ill-equipped for the job that he was unfortunately voted in for.

I recommend it.
