Disgraced Former FBI Chief Andrew McCabe Says Some Agents Will Flee Country If Trump Wins...

•, By Ben Kew

Former FBI chief Andrew McCabe has claimed that some FBI agents and other law enforcement employees are planning to leave the country if Donald Trump wins in November.

In an interview with CNN's Kaitlin Collins, McCabe argued that many individuals fear being  "thrown in jail or grabbed in some sort of extra judicial detention" if Trump returns to the Oval Office.

He explained:

When you think about these things and you try to predict how Donald Trump is going to react are the steps he's going to take you really don't have to go any further than listening to the things he says and does his, comments recently are offensive and horrendous, but they're not a surprising in any way. He's been saying this for quite some time. I will be your retribution is referring to is supporters. So, you know him, you know, what motivates him. He is not a person who's driven by principle or ideology. He is someone who's entirely transactional.

If he feels like he's been wronged in some way, then he focuses on revenge and then in vengeance. He's made it perfectly clear that that's what he's gonna do. In the process of seeking that he run the risk of dismantling or greatly incapacitating the Department of Justice and the FBI. That is something that Americans on both sides of the political aisle should be worried about. We depend on those institutions to protect us.

It's terrifying, it's frightening. I have a lot of conversations with former colleagues, people who are or were in the intelligence and law enforcement community, and may have worked in the Obama administration, other places and people are really trying to assess what is life going to be like if Donald Trump wins a second term.
