Cicilline Statement on Andrew McCabe’s Retirement

Monday, January 29, 2018

WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01), the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee’s Antitrust Subcommittee, issued the following statement today:

“Deputy Director McCabe has served our country for more than two decades in the FBI. He is a remarkable public servant who I’ve had the opportunity to see at the Judiciary Committee. I’ve always found him to be honest and straightforward with members of both political parties.”

“In recent months, several Republicans in Congress have done everything they can to attack the Department of Justice and the FBI. This has included reckless, personal attacks against Deputy Director McCabe and his wife, Jill. Without any merit whatsoever, the President and his zealots have accused Deputy Director McCabe of bias, impropriety, and even criminal conduct.”

“Every day, these baseless attacks are doing real damage to public confidence in our government. In their efforts to protect the President from a legitimate criminal inquiry, Republicans are undermining institutions that are essential to our society. They have gone too far, and their efforts should be condemned by all who love our democracy.”
