(NEW YORK POST) — An online fundraiser for fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s defense fund will stop taking donations at 7 p.m. Monday after it more than tripled the original $150,000 goal.
The GoFundMe campaign had raised $546,375 as of 2:30 p.m. — even after the initial goal was upped to $250,000.
“The outpouring of support on GoFundMe has been simply overwhelming and has led to contributions that have left us stunned and extraordinarily grateful,” the ex-G-man said in a message posted on the site.
“I never imagined that I would need to rely on this type of assistance. The fact is that if I am going to continue taking a stand against the unfair way I have been treated, I will need the help of a talented and courageous team behind me.”
