The FBI is investigating whether Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s 2013 campaign accepted illegal contributions, law enforcement officials confirmed to NBC News.
Federal officials say for the past several months, the FBI has been looking at whether McAuliffe’s 2013 campaign for governor of Virginia accepted political contributions that were forbidden by federal law.
McAuliffe is a one-time board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, the foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton and likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
The former chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 2000 to 2005, McAuliffe was also a co-chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.
