Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe released a statement Thursday afternoon, following the release of the redacted report by special counsel Robert Mueller, which confirmed there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
McCabe was fired from his role at the FBI in 2018 by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, just two days before he planned to retire and collect his pension. While taking a swipe at President Trump, he wrote:
“The Mueller Report is a remarkable document – detailed, thorough, objective, and full of facts rather than rhetoric. It stands as a tribute to the hard work of the team of FBI agents and lawyers who, despite the needless stream of attacks on law enforcement from this Administration, worked for two years to find the facts and the truth amidst a swamp of lies and misinformation. It shows what our law enforcement personnel – especially the dedicated men and women of the FBI – do every day on cases large and small throughout this country. We owe them our profound gratitude.”
