The growing bribery scandal that threatens to upset Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign just became even more devastating.

And the news couldn’t come at a worse time for Clinton.

New reports reveal her personal involvement in helping a political ally bribe the FBI agent who helped oversee the investigation into her political action committee.

Recently, documents revealed how top Clinton confidant – and current Governor of Virginia – Terry McAuliffe helped allies pump nearly $700,000 in contributions into the campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, who happened to be married to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

But what wasn’t known was that Hillary Clinton attended the fundraiser where $500,000 of the dirty money was raked in.

The Daily Mail reports:

Hillary Clinton headlined a major fundraiser for a political action committee shortly before the group steered nearly $500,000 to the wife of the FBI official who oversaw the Clinton email investigation, has learned.

 Clinton’s ties to the Common Good VA – a Virginia state PAC run by Clinton’s long-time friend and advisor Terry McAuliffe, its governor – came under scrutiny this week after the Wall Street Journal reported that the group donated heavily to the state Senate campaign of Jill McCabe.

Her husband Andrew McCabe led the FBI investigation into Clinton’s emails…

 …But Republicans said the large payments from McAuliffe’s PAC to Jill McCabe raise questions about the impartiality of the FBI’s investigation, which determined that Clinton and her aides did not violate any laws while using a private email server to conduct government business.

 Common Good VA was the largest single donor to Jill McCabe’s campaign, election records show, giving her $467,000 between June and October of 2015. 

 She was the third-largest recipient of money from the group, which can only contribute to Virginia state candidates. 

 Her campaign also received an additional $207,788 from the Democratic Party of Virginia, a group over which McAuliffe exerts significant control. Combined, the money made up nearly one-third of her total funding.

 McAuliffe has been a Clinton insider for decades, working for them as a fundraiser, a top aide, and a board member at the Clinton Foundation. He also chaired Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.

Many Americans wondered why Hillary Clinton wasn’t charged with a crime when the evidence of her criminal conduct appeared to be overwhelming.

Did the Clintons buy her freedom?

Some experts believe the appearance of the arrangement was rather shady.

The Mail also reports:

 The National Legal and Policy Center, a Virginia-based government watchdog group, said the financial trail raises significant concerns about the neutrality of the FBI investigation overseen by Andrew McCabe.

 “The fact that Hillary Clinton’s inner circle was raising substantial funds for Gov. McAuliffe’s PAC and this same PAC gave close to a half-million dollars to the campaign of the wife of the senior FBI official involved in the Clinton investigation sure looks like a payoff – a major payoff,” said Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center. 

“What was already a serious corruption story now looks much worse.”

 Clinton’s fundraiser for Common Good took place months after her server was revealed.

So her conduct was already on the radar of the FBI when Hillary raised the money that later flowed into McCabe’s campaign.

As usual with the Clintons, following the money leads down a trail of scandal and corruption.

Will this burgeoning bribery scandal harm her presidential prospects?
