Former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe is planning to sue the Trump administration for defamation and wrongful termination, according to multiple media reports on Friday.
McCabe’s lawyer Michael Bromwich told reporters that McCabe is also considering filing other civil claims. He said the legal team hasn’t yet figured out when they’re going to file the lawsuits and is working on making them “solid.”
“We’ll file when we’re ready,” Bromwich said, according to Axios.
The attorney also announced the launch of a legal defense fund for McCabe, and hopes to transfer the money raised for McCabe’s legal costs through a crowdfunding campaign started after his March firing to the official fund.
Bromwich also accused opponents of McCabe, like President Trump, of “continuing slander.”
