    Fired FBI deputy Andrew McCabe raises over $200,000 to pay for legal bills

    He's raised $361,000 as of the time of this post. In 13 hours.

    A GoFundMe fundraiser set up to cover the legal bills of fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe raised six figures within just a few hours Thursday, exceeding expectations and prompting the organizers to increase the goal of the campaign from $150,000 to $250,000. As of 7 p.m. Thursday, the fund had raised more than $200,000.

    McCabe was fired from the FBI two days before his retirement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the recommendation of FBI officials. An upcoming Department of Justice Inspector General report is expected to be critical of him.

    But Mr. Trump had long blasted McCabe publicly, largely for his wife's acceptance of donations from a Hillary Clinton ally when Jill McCabe ran for state office in Virginia. Shortly before McCabe's firing, Mr. Trump scoffed at the possibility that McCabe might retire with full benefits.

    So a guy with a net worth of over 11 million dollars has the hubris to accept money from people who's net worth is about 1 tenth of that to pay for his legal bills?


    You can't make this shit up folks.

    The point is, it's hilarious watching those who make less than 100k a year donate to the legal bills of a 1%er.


    What happens to that money should he win and win court costs and lawyer feeds?


    Suckers and their money are soon parted.


    Did you donate?

    I'm probably going to regret asking this as the answer is probably obvious and I'm just being a space cadet but, what legal bills is he incurring? Are there criminal charges pending against him? (I didn't think so.) Or civil litigation? Or is this just in relation to preparing for his testimony before various Congressional committees?
    Thanks from pragmatic and THOR

    The saying refers to the absurdity of the story.

    What's funny is that he's worth 11 million, with a peak salary of about 300k... That doesn't count his massive home and multiple really nice cars.

    I'm not quite sure how you can reconcile those numbers.... But people are looking to bail him out, like he's some poor old man who was robbed of his retirement benefits. Even though he's got far bigger concerns than how much cash he can keep for the rest of his days.

    What concerns would that be? Maybe you can answer @Wonderers question, "why does he need money for legal fees"?
