Clinton Ally Aided Campaign of FBI Official’s Wife

McAuliffeThe 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 Virginia Democratic Party, over which Mr. McAuliffe exerts considerable control, donated an additional $207,788 worth of support to Dr. McCabe’s campaign in the form of mailers, according to the records. That adds up to slightly more than $675,000 to her candidacy from entities either directly under Mr. McAuliffe’s control or strongly influenced by him. The figure represents more than a third of all the campaign funds Dr. McCabe raised in the effort.

Mr. McAuliffe and other state party leaders recruited Dr. McCabe to run, according to party officials. She lost the election to incumbent Republican Dick Black.

    The entire U.S. Government is corrupt.
    The only agency I trust now is the CIA.
    Hell, I don’t even trust the Post Office anymore. We are so screwed.

    This is another example of the rampant corruption in the Democrat party. If Donald Trump gets elected we have a chance of clearing this corruption out of Washington. If Hillary Rotten Clinton gets elected government corruption is likely to increase.

    Do you really want decisions affecting you made based on who makes the biggest donation to a Democrat politician?

    I’m truly impressed with the Clinton supporter who could see into the future enough to give money to a campaign for office over a year before the candidates husband got a gets a job that could help Clinton with a problem that she didn’t even have at the time. If these are the type of people Clinton has to advise her we are the luckiest nation on earth. We will know what is going to happen a year in advance. They can see into the future. I could be wrong, they might have just liked the candidate and wanted to support her run for office but that would be crazy.

      Are you blind? This has been in the making since Obama took the candidacy away from her in 2008. You have to understand the Clinton’s have been on a power kick since their days in Arkansas. Wake up and realize corruption is at an all time high in this country.

        Are you that gullible to believe that someone would spend all that money on a chance that a candidates husband might be put in a position that he could help Clinton with a problem that no one had known about. You give Clinton a lot of credit here. Do you believe that Hillary is so brilliant that she can beat all those Republicans that have been after her hide for all those years. We have spent millions and millions of tax payer dollars hunting Clinton and she has escaped every time. Are the Republicans that stupid? They must be or maybe, just maybe she isn’t that smart and it’s a case that she didn’t do the things they are trying to nail her for. Remember just because Rush or Hannity says so doesn’t make it real.

          if you support a crook, you are a crook.

            So you support Trump. How many people has he not paid and have had to take him to court to get their money? How many people lost big by buying stock in his companies that went under? How many times have governments had to sue him to pay his taxes? These are not made up stories, there are court records to back them up. So you have your man Trump the great rip-off artist and prove crook or you have Clinton who the republicans have worked for years and spent millions and millions of tax dollars but can’t get her for an unpaid parking ticket.
