According to a recently released report, Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who has ties with Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave almost $500,000 to support the wife of an FBI official who was implicated in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s unsecured email server from which she shared classified information from while Secretary of State.
McAuliffe’s political organization gave over half a million in cash and material support to the election campaign of the wife of the official who helped oversee the Clinton email investigation.
According to campaign finance records, McAuliffe’s political-action committee gave $467,500 to support Dr. Jill McCabe’s state Senate campaign. She is married to Andrew McCabe, the current deputy director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Gov. McAuliffe also has a considerable amount of influence over the Virginia Democratic Party which also donated an additional $207,788 worth mailers to Dr. McCabe’s campaign. The $675,000 that was donated by entities under the control of Mr. McAuliffe, made up more than a third of all the campaign funds Dr. McCabe raised to run for office.
State party leaders hand-picked Dr. McCabe to run, but lost to incumbent Republican Dick Black.
According to a statement released by the FBI, Mr. McCabe “played no role, attended no events, and did not participate in fundraising or support of any kind. Months after the completion of her campaign, then-Associate Deputy Director McCabe was promoted to Deputy, where, in that position, he assumed for the first time, an oversight role in the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails.”
