Jill McCabe, an emergency room pediatrician and the wife of fired FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, opened up about how the president's "attacks" on both her and her husband created a nightmare for her family, in a new Washington Post op-ed.

"[My previous decision to enter politics] — plus some twisted reporting and presidential tweets — ended up costing my husband, Andrew, his job and our family a significant portion of his pension my husband had worked hard for over 21 years of federal service ... For the past year and a half of this nightmare, I have not been free to speak out about what happened. Now that Andrew has been fired, I am."
