She said McCabe went to great lengths during her state senate campaign to keep his work as a top member of the FBI separate. “Andrew’s involvement in the Clinton investigation came not only after the contributions were made to my campaign but also after the race was over,” McCabe wrote in a Washington Post opinion piece reflecting on the scandal. She was questioned on her husband's alleged bias by a reporter in Oct. 2016, McCabe wrote, later adding that she was "naive" to believe that would be the end of the matter.

Jill McCabe has not publicly commented about the criticism aimed at her or her husband, the recently fired deputy FBI director, Andrew McCabe. But on Monday, the Washington Post published her first remarks in an op-ed that lays out the history of her ill-fated run for the Virginia state senate and, as she puts it, "set[s] the record straight."

Jill McCabe, an emergency room pediatrician, is married to former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe. I am an emergency room pediatrician and an accidental politician — someone who never thought much about politics until I was recruited to run for state office after making a statement about the importance of expanding Medicaid. That decision — plus some twisted reporting and presidential tweets — ended up costing my husband, Andrew, his job and our family a significant portion of his pension my husband had worked hard for over 21 years of federal service. For the past year and a half of this nightmare, I have not been free to speak out about what happened. Now that Andrew has been fired, I am. Andrew and I met as sophomores in college, at Duke University. He was interested in law (eventually law enforcement), I in medicine (eventually pediatrics). Andrew’s a reliable Republican; I have voted, over time, for both Republicans and Democrats.As we have raised our … [Read more...] about Jill McCabe: The president attacked my reputation.
