Eh, nothing to see here. The husband of the woman she was raising money for was only the FBI guy investigating her illegal emails.
Move along, everyone, nothing shady here.
Hillary Clinton headlined a major fundraiser for a political action committee shortly before the group steered nearly $500,000 to the wife of the FBI official who oversaw the Clinton email investigation, DailyMail.com has learned.
Clinton’s ties to the Common Good VA – a Virginia state PAC run by Clinton’s long-time friend and advisor Terry McAuliffe, its governor – came under scrutiny this week after the Wall Street Journal reported that the group donated heavily to the state senate campaign of Jill McCabe.
Her husband Andrew McCabe led the FBI investigation into Clinton’s emails.
Andrew McCabe, now the deputy director of the FBI, told the Wall Street Journal that he complied with federal ethics rules and was not promoted to lead the Clinton probe until months after his wife’s unsuccessful state senate bid ended.
But Republicans said the large payments from McAuliffe’s PAC to Jill McCabe raise questions about the impartiality of the FBI’s investigation, which determined that Clinton and her aides did not violate any laws while using a private email server to conduct government business.
Common Good VA was the largest single donor to Jill McCabe’s campaign, election records show, giving her $467,000 between June and October of 2015.
She was the third-largest recipient of money from the group, which can only contribute to Virginia state candidates.
Her campaign also received an additional $207,788 from the Democratic Party of Virginia, a group over which McAuliffe exerts significant control. Combined, the money made up nearly one-third of her total funding.
McAuliffe has been a Clinton insider for decades, working for them as a fundraiser, a top aide, and a board member at the Clinton Foundation. He also chaired Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.
But Clinton’s ties to Common Good VA go beyond her relationship with McAuliffe. In June 2015, she headlined a key fundraiser for the group, which reportedly brought in over $1 million for the PAC and the Democratic Party of Virginia.
In the four months that followed, five-and-six-figure donations poured into Common Good VA from out-of-state Clinton supporters and aides.
If only the GOP had a competent candidate who could articulate how corrupt these people are. We suppose she could try and deny it, except there’s photographic evidence of her there. Not that the national media will bother looking into this.
