Jill McCabe is the long time wife of FBI director, Andrew McCabe. Her husband became the acting director of the FBI earlier this week.
Jill’s husband previously served as deputy director having been promoted from associate deputy director.
Andrew G. McCabe born in 1968 attended Duke University and earned a law degree from the Washington University School of Law in St. Louis, worked as a lawyer before joining the FBI, according to his biography for The Cambridge Cyber Summit.
He joined the FBI in 1996 working in the New York field office and focusing on organized crime.
As deputy director, McCabe oversaw all FBI domestic and international investigative and intelligence activities.
Though Andrew is the one getting the spotlight, it is his wife whom we want to tell you about.
Jill McCabe is the real star in the family with her many roles. She is a doctor, mother, wife and former senate candidate. The wife and mom of two has worked as a primary care pediatrician for most of her life.
According to her LinkedIn, she attended Duke University School of Medicine from 1990 until 1994. Where we assume she and Andrew McCabe met.
The couple were married in the 90’s and are the proud parents of two teens, a son and a daughter.
She currently serves as the Medical Director of three departments at Inova Loudoun Hospital: the Pediatric Emergency Department, the Pediatric Hospitalist Services and the outpatient Concussion Program.
Jill McCabe ran in 2015 for a seat in the Virginia State Senate. Prior to her political stint, she worked as a pediatric emergency physician.
Her campaign embraced the label of a non politician and her website said
“As a doctor and medical administrator, she has devoted her time and energy to improving the lives of all those under her care. In the hospital, Jill solves problems by listening to patients, analyzing data, and weighing the risks and benefits of every potential solution. Rather than shy away from challenging situations, Jill makes difficult decisions every day in order to advance the interests of the patients and families who place their trust in her. As our state senator, she will continue to devote herself to ensuring that your interests come first.”
Controversy has surrounded the couple after Jill ran for state Senate in Northern Virginia as a Democrat. Though lost her election bid. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who is close to Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave McCabe’s campaign $467,500 from his political action committee. The Virginia Democratic Party also donated $207,788 to McCabe’s campaign, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Those ties led the FBI to issue a statement in October on Andrew McCabe’s ties to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server.
The family of four currently reside in Loudoun County.
