ACTING FBI DIRECTOR: Under Investigation for Ties to Hillary Clinton [VIDEO]
Trump promised to drain the swamp, and the draining is underway.
Will there be anyone left standing when the waters disappear?
Washington, D.C. is now the hot spot of investigations. Probes spawn more probes. So, Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe finds himself under scrutiny for possibly violating the Hatch Act.
According to Circa News:
The Hatch Act prohibits FBI agents from campaigning in partisan races. Photos of McCabe campaigning for his wife raised questions about McCabe’s compliance with the law.
The Office of U.S. Special Counsel, the government’s main whistleblower agency, is investigating whether FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s activities supporting his wife Jill’s Democratic campaign for Virginia state senate in 2015 violated the Hatch Act.
A former FBI initiated the probe by forwarding photos taken from social media.
During Jill McCabe’s campaign, her husband wore a t-shirt supporting his wife. He also made a poster that read “I am voting for Jill because she is the best wife ever.”
Next, he took a selfie holding the sign, urging voters to join him in voting for his wife. He also posted pictures wearing the same t-shirt at public events.
Then, McCabe’s daughter campaigned while wearing an FBI t-shirt.
What’s the Big Deal?
As Circa explains:
The Hatch Act prohibits FBI employees from engaging “in political activity in concert with a political party, a candidate for partisan political office, or a partisan political group.”
It defines prohibited political activity as “any activity directed at the success or failure of a partisan group or candidate in a partisan election.”
An ethics expert told Circa the photos raised legitimate questions about McCabe’s compliance with the law.
Meanwhile, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s office released to Circa under the Freedom of Information Act documents showing McCabe attended a meeting with his wife and the governor on a Saturday in March 2015 specifically to discuss having Jill McCabe run for state Senate in Virginia as a Democrat.
“This is a candidate recruitment meeting. McCabe is seriously considering running against State Senator Dick Black. You have been asked to close the deal,” the briefing memo for McAuliffe read.
This isn’t about a t-shirt.
Leftists will try to minimize this. They’ll say “he wore a t-shirt for his wife.”
But McCabe didn’t just lend moral support to his spouse. He used his resume to solicit donations. That’s clearly unethical. Furthermore, as Hannity brought to light, small campaigns like Jill McCabe’s don’t typically rake in $700,000 worth of donations.
Additionally, the Governor of Virginia is under scrutiny for some very seedy campaign contributions. Governor McAuliffe gave $467,500 to Jill McCabe’s campaign, while her husband was investigating Hillary. Now that’s as fishy as tuna casserole.
Now, it’s starting to look like the Michael Flynn investigation was the FBI’s retaliation for an earlier situation. Apparently, Flynn was a hostile witness in one of McCabe’s investigations two years before the election.
Any way you slice it, the Democrats are coming undone. It was only a matter of time.
