According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe sent more than half a million dollars.
In campaign funds and material support to the wife of an FBI official who was a part of the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s personal email server.
It was recently revealed that Clinton performed all of her business as Secretary of State from this server, including sharing classified information.
The Wall Street Journal called McAuliffe “an influential Democrat” with longstanding connections to Bill and Hillary Clinton. His political-action committee reportedly gave the large chunk of cash to the 2015 state Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, who is married to Andrew McCabe, currently the Deputy Director of the FBI.
Furthermore, it was reported that the Virginia Democratic Party, over which Mr. McAuliffe has extensive influence, sent another $207,788 to Dr. McCabe’s campaign in the form of mailers. This means than over $675,000 was donated to Clinton’s candidacy directly under the control of Mr. McAuliffe. “The figure represents more than a third of all the campaign funds Dr. McCabe raised in the effort,” WSJ reported.
A spokesman for McAuliffe announced he “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.”
