"I wrote this book because the president's attacks on me symbolize his destructive effect on the country as a whole," McCabe said in a statement through St. Martin's. "He is undermining America's safety and security, and eroding public confidence in its institutions. His attacks on the most crucial institutions of government, and on the professionals who serve within them, should make every American stand up and take notice."  

According to the publisher, McCabe will chronicle "a series of troubling, contradictory, and often bizarre conversations" with Trump and other administration officials that he claims in the book "undermine the FBI and the entire intelligence community" while posing a threat to the public.
