A longtime Hillary Clinton ally donated approximately $500,000 to the wife of an FBI official who later helped oversee the investigation into Clinton's email use.
The FBI probe which cleared Clinton of any wrongdoing was conducted by Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. McCabe's wife ran for Congress and Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a long-time Clinton insider and former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman, helped facilitate donations – two separate campaign contributions to, one for $467,500 and another for $207,788 to McCabe's wife's campaign. McCabe should have recused himself from conducting the investigation. His objectivity is obviously compromised.
While I am concerned about the corruptions of Hillary Clinton, I am more concerned about the corruption of government institutions. When the FBI can no longer be trusted, when powerful people are above the law and can destroy subpoenaed information with impunity, when pay-to-play is the standard operating procedure, when the IRS is used to go after the enemies of the administration, then that may not change with a change of who is in office. I do not necessarily think Republicans are more virtuous than Democrats. Once rule of law is thrown out the window and once Americans stop being concerned about government corruption, then the instruments of government will be used to protect those in office and go after the administration's enemies, regardless of which party is in power.
