Terry McAuliffe Gave $500,000 In Campaign Cash To Wife Of FBI Official On Email Investigation

The outrageous corruption within Hillary Clinton’s closest circle produced more negative headlines for the Democratic nominee, with the election just weeks away. The Wall Street Journal reported last night that Jill McCabe, the wife of the FBI’s third-highest ranking official, received nearly $500,000 from Clinton confidante Terry McAuliffe:

“The political organization of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an influential Democrat with longstanding ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an official at the Federal Bureau of Investigation who later helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s email use. Campaign finance records show Mr. McAuliffe’s political-action committee donated $467,500 to the 2015 state Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, who is married to Andrew McCabe, now the deputy director of the FBI.”

The Wall Street Journal also reported that McCabe was the third-largest recipient of funds from McAuliffe’s PAC, Common Good VA. The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton has been suspect since the infamous Phoenix tarmac meeting between Attorney General Lorretta Lynch and Bill Clinton, and this only adds fuel to that fire.

The Bureau claims that just because McCabe’s campaign ended before her husband was promoted to his role overseeing the Clinton investigation, there is no conflict-of-interest from their McAuliffe ties. Yet the average voter can see that hundreds of thousands of dollars in support might have more long-lasting effects than the FBI gives credit for.
