'Help, Can I Get My Money Back from McCabe's GoFundMe Campaign?'

Did you donate to former Assistant Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe’s GoFundMe campaign to pay for his legal expenses?

Were you surprised to read the Department of Justice’s Office of Inspector General’s report detailing McCabe’s “lack of candor” with DOJ investigators and unauthorized leaking?

The inspector general report was unsparing in its assessment of Mr. McCabe. The review accused Mr. McCabe of lacking candor when he spoke to Mr. Comey shortly after the October 2016 article was published, when he spoke with F.B.I. investigators and then in two conversations with investigators for the inspector general.

Lack of candor, or knowingly providing false information, is a fireable offense at the F.B.I.

The inspector general said that when investigators asked whether Mr. McCabe had instructed a pair of aides to provide information in October 2016 to Devlin Barrett, then a Wall Street Journal reporter, Mr. McCabe said he did not authorize the disclosure and did not know who did.

Mr. McCabe subsequently said he approved the F.B.I.’s contact with the reporter, according to the review.

Did you believe that that the Orange Authoritarian, “45,” Donald Drumpf fired civil servant McCabe to “send a message” to other agents to back off their righteous and just investigation of RUSSIAN collusion filthy trysts with Moscow prostitutes?

It looks like you are out of luck.

According to GoFundMe’s page on refunds, “This is often possible within 1 day of making the donation.”

Otherwise, since all donations are immediately available to the Campaign Organizer and may have already been withdrawn, we encourage donors to contact the Campaign Organizer to request a refund so they understand why the funds might be taken out of their account.

To do this, visit the campaign you’ve donated to and click or tap the envelope icon next to the Campaign Organizer’s name to send them a message about refunding your donation.

If you don’t feel comfortable contacting the Campaign Organizer, please contact our team and share your reasoning for requesting a refund so that we can help.

McCabe’s campaign is over now after raking in over $500,000, which is almost as much as his wife received from Clinton friend and former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe when she ran for state office.

Other options for getting your money back: call your credit card company and determine if  they will reverse the charge.

Caveat emptor.
