Prior to his promotion to deputy FBI director under Comey, McCabe’s wife, Jill, accepted $467,500 from the Virginia governor’s political action committee to support her 2015 state Senate race.

The Virginia Democratic Party also donated over $200,000 to Jill McCabe’s campaign.

McCabe was involved in the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state when it was discovered his wife was financially supported by a Clinton ally.

The discovery led to inquiries McCabe should have recused himself from the email investigation due to his family ties to the Clinton’s.

At the time, then-presidential nominee Donald Trump Tweeted:

Furthermore, the RNC Chairman at the time, Reince Priebus, said McAuliffe’s donation to McCabe’s wife was basically a “down payment” that was supposed to influence the FBI’s investigation.

As we now know, the Justice Department has been investigating Hillary Clinton and in a recent climax, a judge ordered that she reveal ALL the emails in question.

As for McCabe, one has to wonder how much power he can wield as an “acting director” but even so, there are raised eyebrows and plenty of whispers circulating around Washington right now.
