Terry McAuliffe, Democratic Virginia Governor and staunch ally of Hillary and Bill Clinton, is being investigated by the FBI over questionable donations made to his campaign for governor.
Under review is a $120,000 donation McAuliffe accepted from Chinese businessman Wang Wengliang, who was born in China, but is now a permanent U.S. resident.
In addition to his donation to McAuliffe, Wang has pledged $2 million to the Clinton Global Initiative, as well as other causes, including Harvard, New York University and environmental projects in Florida.
The Federal Election Commission website states: “Foreign nationals are prohibited from making any contributions or expenditures in connection with any election in the U.S. … but ‘green card’ holders (i.e., individuals lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the U.S.) are not considered foreign nationals and, as a result, may contribute.”
McAuliffe was chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2008.
Monday he was sued by the Virginia Republicans over his decision to restore voting rights to 206,000 felons. See: VIRGINIA GOVERNOR GIVES EX-CONS RIGHT TO VOTE
