A former strategist for President Bill Clinton has admitted that the Clintons gave more than a million dollars in bribes to a top FBI official’s wife while Hillary was being investigated by the FBI—and he thinks that could have resulted in her being let off the hook.
The bombshell allegations come directly from Dick Morris, who was a chief adviser to Bill Clinton in the 1990s.
Morris claimed that, despite previous reports of much smaller donations, the Clintons had in fact given $1.2 million in campaign funds to Jill McCabe, who was running for state senate in Virginia—a huge amount for a local race. (Despite heavily outspending her opponent, Jill McCabe lost her election.)
But most importantly, Jill McCabe is the wife of Andrew McCabe—the former deputy director of the FBI, who resigned earlier this month amid claims that he had been biased during the Clinton server and Russia 2016 investigations.
Morris explains why Jill’s campaign could have had such a major impact on law enforcement in the United States: “As Jill was getting the contributions, husband Andrew was sitting on a new trove of Hillary emails that had been discovered on the computer of Huma Abedin’s husband, former Congressman Anthony Weiner. These previously unreported and unexamined emails were discovered during a search of Weiner’s computer in late September, 2016. But it was not until late October, 2016, that McCabe and his boss James Comey brought it to Congress’ attention.”
“Was McCabe’s slow walking of the missing emails in return for the donations to Jill’s campaign?” Morris asked. “That’s what Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz wants to know.”
McCabe has already resigned from the FBI—but the scandal into whether or not the FBI had intentionally tried to promote Hillary Clinton while bringing down Donald Trump remains an open question.
