‘I went through hell’ under McCabe: Fmr female FBI agent is loving Karma and telling why

Andrew McCabe isn’t getting the last word.

Robyn Gritz, a former FBI counter-terrorism agent, reacted to McCabe’s scathing op-ed regarding his firing by claiming the former FBI deputy director “slandered” her and made her go “through hell” over a harassment claim she filed against a superior.

Gritz told Fox & Friends Pete Hegseth she began working with McCabe in 2005. At the time, she was a “detailee” to the CIA and her boss (who was not McCabe) began “scrutinizing [her] work” and alleging she was “fragile” following her divorce.

“He made some discriminatory comments about why I was traveling and such,” Gritz said of her supervisor and another coworker.

“At the same time, they were doing similar talks like this to an African American detailee that worked with me,” she added.

Gritz claimed she “put [her] foot down” and addressed the issue with her supervisor, who threatened her job. In response, she filed a harassment complaint against him.

According to Gritz, McCabe signed off on an internal investigation of Gritz just five days later. In the sworn statement to the FBI’s Office of Personal Responsibility, McCabe wrote that he “knew” Gritz had or was going to file a complaint about her boss.

“Basically, I went through hell for a year and a half, and Andy made sure that I couldn’t get out of the division. I was selected for certain jobs, and he actually slandered me, went into the meeting at headquarters and said really nasty false things about me,” she said.

The alleged mistreatment eventually led Gritz to resign.

The former agent dismissed McCabe’s claim to being a victim. When she learned of his firing earlier this month, Gritz said she shouted with joy.

She also said “50” FBI employees contacted her and were also supportive of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to fire McCabe, who admitted in his Washington Post op-ed to misleading investigators about his 2016 decision to leak information regarding the Hillary Clinton email server probe to the Wall Street Journal.

“I feel it should have been a year ago that he was on the street without pay,” Gritz concluded. “Because if you’re a normal street agent, you would have been on leave without pay or fired about a year ago.”
