Gov Terry McAuliffe of Virginia either gave or directed 675k to the campaign of state Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe. The 675k represented over 33% of her total contributions. That’s a lot of money coming from a single source and for a state senate race. She lost to the republican candidate Dick Black.
What happened next is even stranger. McCabe’s husband is Andrew McCabe works for the FBI. After his wife received the money, McCabe was promoted to promoted to Deputy and was given the assignment of being in charge of oversight into the investigation of Hillary Clinton. Isn’t that a coinkidink?
The FBI also said that Andrew 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.”
However, this raises a series of questions. Given that one of Clinton’s closest allies gave over half a million dollars to his wife’s campaign, why was Andrew McCabe given an oversight role in the Clinton email investigation?
After all, there is no other elected official in America more tied up with the Clintons than Terry McAuliffe. If the Obama administration was interested in an impartial investigation in both appearance and fact, isn’t McCabe’s involvement a prima facie conflict of interest?
Anyone who thinks there is no connection between the money and the investigation, you have either not been paying attention or you are just delusional.
