    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has signed a book deal to write about his career, which overlapped investigations of the 2016 US presidential campaign, the publisher St. Martin’s Press announced in a statement on Tuesday.

    "We are thrilled and honored to be publishing Andrew McCabe’s book – destined to be a seminal record of our times," St. Martin’s Executive Vice President and Publisher Jennifer Enderlin said in the statement.

    McCabe’s book is titled "The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump," and its publication is slated for December 4.

    Enderlin added the book will be "candid, dramatic and urgently newsworthy."
