The Threat is a #1 New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal bestseller by Andrew G. McCabe. The book provides a dramatic and candid account of McCabe's career in the FBI, and an impassioned defense of the FBI's agents and their integrity. The Threat recounts the time between Donald Trump's election and McCabe's firing, set against a page-turning narrative spanning two decades when the FBI's mission shifted to a new goal: preventing terrorist attacks on Americans. McCabe argues that the greatest threat to the United States comes from within, as President Trump and his administration ignore the law, attack democratic institutions, degrade human rights, and undermine the U.S. Constitution that protects every citizen.
