More Swamp to Drain: Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe Connected to Hillary Campaign
Guest post by Joe Hoft
Another government employee, another swamp to drain.
Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe who took over the reigns of the FBI after the recent firing of James Comey unfortunately has ties to the Hillary Campaign.
Comey was fired two days ago by President Trump based on a report prepared by Comey’s recently confirmed boss Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and his boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The AP reported:
President Donald Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday, saying it was necessary to restore “public trust and confidence” in the nation’s top law enforcement agency following several tumultuous months.
In a report prepared by Rosenstein, Comey was blamed for the poor moral at the FBI as a result of Comey’s leadership. Other reports state that Comey was fired because he refused to identify the members of the Obama Administration who unmasked the identities of individuals ‘wiretapped’ by Obama during the 2016 Presidential campaign. Comey will go down in history for his famous press conference in July 2016 where he presented a plethora of evidence of criminal acts by Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and then after making his accusations, declined to recommend charges be brought against her.
Now it is being reported that Comey’s replacement as Acting FBI Head, Andrew McCabe, has ties to the Hillary Clinton campaign. Left Wing online publication, Newsweek, is reporting that:
concerns came after revelations by media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, that a political action committee affiliated with Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who has ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, contributed almost $500,000 to the 2015 Virginia state Senate campaign of McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe. (She lost the election.) She also received $207,788 from the Virginia Democratic Party, which is connected to McAuliffe, a Democrat.

The donations are suspicious because charges were never pressed against Clinton by the FBI. Was McCabe’s spouse given the donations as a payment for not pressing charges against Clinton?
Virginia State Senator Dick Black tweeted that McCabe may have broken the law during the 2016 campaign when he was shown in a tweet from his wife on election day. Apparently members of the FBI are not to campaign on social media.

Nick Short posted a letter to Senator Chuck Grassley describing the ties of McCabe to Hillary Clinton.
