Many Americans were shocked when FBI Director James Comey decided not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton for transmitting classified intelligence over an unsecured private email server.
There were many questions as to what caused his decision.
But bombshell revelations show a top Clinton ally made campaign contributions to the family of a senior FBI agent, and many are calling it a bribe.
Terry McAullife is the Governor of Virginia.
He was also the former chair of the Democrat National Committee and a top Clinton fund-raiser.
Back in 2015, his political action committee funneled nearly half a million dollars in campaign contributions to the Virginia State Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe.
The Democratic Party of Virginia pushed another $207,088 to her campaign.
All told, McAullife’s political cronies stuffed Dr. McCabe’s coffers with just under $700,000 in campaign contributions.
But why choose her race?
The answer is simple.
Dr. Jill McCabe’s husband is Andrew McCabe, the Deputy Director of the FBI.
McCabe announced her candidacy in March of 2015, the same month Hillary’s secret email server was revealed.
Governor McAullife met with the couple on March 7, 2015.
The Wall Street Journal reports on the sequence of events:
“Dr. McCabe announced her candidacy in March 2015, the same month it was revealed that Mrs. Clinton had used a private server as secretary of state to send and receive government emails, a disclosure that prompted the FBI investigation.
At the time the investigation was launched in July 2015, Mr. McCabe was running the FBI’s Washington, D.C., field office, which provided personnel and resources to the Clinton email probe.
That investigation examined whether Mrs. Clinton’s use of private email may have compromised national security by transmitting classified information in an insecure system. A review of Mrs. Clinton’s emails concluded that 110 messages contained classified information. Mrs. Clinton has said she made a mistake but that she never sent or received messages that were marked classified.
At the end of July 2015, Mr. McCabe was promoted to FBI headquarters and assumed the No. 3 position at the agency. In February 2016, he became FBI Director James Comey’s second-in-command.
As deputy director, Mr. McCabe was part of the executive leadership team overseeing the Clinton email investigation, though FBI officials say any final decisions on that probe were made by Mr. Comey, who served as a high-ranking Justice Department official in the administration of George W. Bush.”
Suspicious circumstances constantly surround the Clintons, their allies, and everything they are involved in.
From an obscure state senate race attracting nearly one million dollars in contributions for a candidate whose husband happens to be a senior FBI official, to groups connected to one of the Clinton’s closest friends the very same month her private server is revealed, strikes many as borderline bribery.
