FBI Agent Who Took Clinton’s Bribes Got Some Unwelcome News

By  | 

Last week, the public learned of the shady connections between Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, his wife Dr. Jill McCabe, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, and the Clinton campaign.

To briefly summarize the sheer madness of this situation: Gov. McAuliffe is a long-time Clinton insider and former Hillary campaign chairman. In 2015, he made two substantial donations — $467,500 and then $207,788 – to Dr. Jill McCabe’s (failed) Senate race at the same time her husband, Andrew, was “overseeing” the Clinton email investigation.

Incredibly, the McCabe’s did not see the need to decline the donations from McAuliffe, nor did Andrew McCabe see it as necessary to step away from the Clinton investigation after his wife received the donations.

One would think that at some point, the question of impropriety would arise.

Now, that lack of situational awareness and obvious political scheming could possibly cost Andrew McCabe his entire career.

Via the Washington Examiner:

The FBI’s second in command is facing pressure over donations Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a top Clinton ally, made to the official’s wife who was running an uphill battle against a popular conservative Northern Virginia state senator.

That senator, Dick Black, on Monday called for the resignation of Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Black claimed that McCabe’s actions have done damage to the FBI’s reputation of being honest and ethical.

“I call on Andrew McCabe to step down from the FBI for the good of all the agents who do their work in in ethical and honest fashion.”

It’s likely fellow Republicans will join Senator Black in his calls for McCabe’s resignation. We will see how the story unfolds, and whether McCabe will be forced to, or voluntarily, leave his position with the Bureau.
