Alana Goodman in the Daily Mail reports that Hillary Clinton headlined a 2015 fundraiser for a group called Common Good VA that brought in $1 million shortly before the political committee bankrolled a Virginia state Senate candidate who is married to the FBI agent who oversaw of the Clinton email investigation.
In addition, Common Good VA received big donations from Clinton loyalists including then-Clinton Foundation operative Doug Band who wrote a personal check of $50,000.
The story adds important new details to the original October 24 report in the Wall Street Journal that Common Good VA headed by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe was the largest single donor the unsuccessful 2015 campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, wife of Andrew McCabe, now FBI deputy director.
From the Daily Mail:
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.’
McAuliffe himself is reportedly under FBI investigation for allegedly accepting illegal campaign contributions from a Chinese businessman who is also a major donor to the Clinton Foundation.
