It is widely acknowledged that the FBI discredited itself with its feeble and sham investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server. FBI Director James Comey still has been unable to provide a coherent explanation about why agents had one hand, or perhaps two hands, tied behind their back when conducting the probe in the mishandling of sensitive government documents on an unsecured server rather a presumably more secure dot.gov account.
In fact, it recently emerged that some investigators investigators in the email scandal probe are furious that Comey declined to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton despite the weight of the evidence. Moreover, Judicial Watch has done a lot of the work that government agencies should have carried out in the probe.
Imagine for a second if Hillary Clinton was the Republican presidential nominee rather than the Democrat under the same facts and circumstances. New information may suggest that the FBI is further compromised and politicized.
From the Wall Street Journal:
The political organization of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an influential Democrat with longstanding ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an official at the Federal Bureau of Investigation who later helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s email use. Campaign finance records show Mr. McAuliffe’s political-action committee donated $467,500 to the 2015 state Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, who is married to Andrew McCabe, now the deputy director of the FBI.
The Virginia Democratic Party, over which Mr. McAuliffe exerts considerable control, donated an additional $207,788 worth of support to Dr. McCabe’s campaign in the form of mailers, according to the records. That adds up to slightly more than $675,000 to her candidacy from entities either directly under Mr. McAuliffe’s control or strongly influenced by him. The figure represents more than a third of all the campaign funds Dr. McCabe raised in the effort.
As part of McAuliffe’s failed attempt to take over the state senate, Dr. McCabe was one of several candidates who lost to Republican opposition. The governor’s office has disavowed any conflict of interest in the McCabe donations.
Last month, Newsweek published a hit piece that accused Republican nominee Donald Trump of trying to use a shell company to illegally do business in Cuba in the late 1990s. It turns out that“master salesman” Terry McAuliffe also allegedly tried to do business in Cuba when it was against the law.
McAuliffe was only narrowly elected governor of Virginia (despite the pre-election polling) in November 2013 when the GOP establishment failed to provide sufficient assistance to Republican Ken Cuccinelli, the state’s then attorney general.
