In a disturbing story published by the Wall Street Journal today, we learn more about how Hillary Clinton used her pal to “buy” the FBI.
Following an intensive investigation, the WSJ reveals that the Clintons and one of their top allies funded Dr. Jill McCabe and her campaign for the Senate back in 2015. What makes this of special interest?” McCabe is the wife of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe – a leading figure in the email probe investigation of Hillary Clinton.
According to finance records, longtime Clinton ally Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe used his SuperPAC to give $467,500 to the McCabe campaign. An additional $207,788 was donated to the campaign by the Democratic Party. Despite these hefty campaign contributions, McCabe lost the election to Republican incumbent Dick Black. However, Director Andrew McCabe was promoted from associate to deputy director after his wife’s campaign ended, officially assuming a primary oversight role in the Clinton email investigation.
While Director McCabe claims he went through “ethics training” in regards to remaining impartial during the investigation, reports claim McAuliffe and leading DNC officials recruited his wife Dr. McCabe to run for senate early on; for the true purpose of having Director McCabe by the strings.
McAuliffe’s spokesperson denies the claims:
“Gov. 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.”
The Wall Street Journal report correlates with Donald Trump’s persistent claims that the Justice Department and FBI investigation into Clinton’s email use was compromised and corrupted. He tweeted out the WSJ article on Sunday:

According to Fox News legal analyst, Judge Napalitano, although it appears to be a shady contribution, there are no laws stopping this sort of contribution to be made.
