McCabe: ‘Terrified’ Intelligence Officials Preparing To Flee US To Avoid Jail If Trump Is Re-Elected


Intelligence and law enforcement officials are preparing to flee the United States to avoid being thrown in jail if Donald Trump is re-elected, according to former FBI chief Andrew McCabe who told CNN’s The Source that many are terrified they will be “thrown in jail or grabbed in some sort of extra judicial detention.”

McCabe said, “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.”

McCabe continued, “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.”

McCabe added, “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.

“On a very personal level, I mean, these are torturous discussions with their family members about whether or not they have to leave the country to avoid being unconstitutionally and illegally detained.

“People were actually worried about being thrown in jail or grabbed in some sort of extra judicial detention. I think it’s crazy as this sounds in the United States, America, I think people should really consider that these are possibilities listen to what the man says.”
