    $$$$ Funneled to FBI AGENT's Wife That Oversaw Emails

    Clinton ally funneled money to wife of FBI agent who oversaw emails

    By Jeremy Lott 10/23/16 10:48 PM

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an important ally of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, funneled nearly $700,000 in donations and support to the campaign of the spouse of an FBI official who then oversaw Clinton's email investigation.

    The Virginia governor's office was full of denials about the connection on Sunday.

    "Any insinuation that his support" for state Senate candidate Dr. Jill McCabe, wife of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, "was tied to anything other than his desire to elect candidates who would help pass his agenda is ridiculous," a spokesman for the governor told the Wall Street Journal.McAuliffe's PAC donated $475,000 to Jill McCabe's campaign in 2015 and the Virginia Democratic Party, which is heavily influenced by the governor, donated an additional $207,788 worth of support to her unsuccessful bid for office.

    The FBI insists that Andrew McCabe "played no role" in his wife's campaign. Months later he was promoted from associate deputy director to deputy director which gave him an "oversight role in the investigation into Secretary Clinton's emails."

    The McCabes together did have one meeting with McAuliffe in March of last year, in which the governor and other state Democrats urged Jill McCabe to run for office.

    After that meeting, Andrew McCabe reportedly sought ethics advice from the FBI and followed it. He not only refrained from campaigning on his wife's behalf but recused himself from public corruption cases in Virginia, currently including an investigation into possible foreign influence peddling by McAuliffe himself.

    Clinton ally gave $500K to wife of FBI agent on email probe

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime Clinton confidant, helped steer $675,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an FBI official who went on to lead the probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email system, according to a report.

    The political action committee of McAuliffe, the Clinton loyalist, gave $467,500 to the state Senate campaign of the wife of Andrew McCabe, who is now deputy director of the FBI, according to the Wall Street Journal.

    The report states Jill McCabe received an additional $207,788 from the Virginia Democratic Party, which is heavily influenced by McAuliffe.

    The money directed by McAuliffe began flowing two months after the FBI investigation into Clinton began in July 2015. Around that time, the candidate’s husband was promoted from running the Washington field office for the FBI to the No. 3 position at the bureau.

    Within a year, McCabe was promoted to deputy director, the second-highest position in the bureau.

    In a statement to the Journal, the FBI said 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.”

    The governor’s office claimed the FBI’s McCabe met the governor only once — on March 7, 2015, when McAuliffe persuaded Jill McCabe to run.

    The 2015 Virginia state Senate run — her first attempt to gain public office — was unsuccessful as she lost to the incumbent Republican.

    McAuliffe “supported Jill McCabe because he believed she would be a good state senator. This is a customary practice for Virginia governors … Any insinuation that his support was tied to anything other than his desire to elect candidates who would help pass his agenda is ridiculous,” a spokesman for the Virginia governor told the Journal.

    McAuliffe has been a longtime backer of the Clintons, even serving as Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair in 2008.
