At one time in February, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe said he wouldn’t rule out the possibility of becoming Hillary Clinton’s running mate. It broke late Monday that he is under criminal investigation by the FBI for illegal campaign donations.
The FBI is looking into donations to his 2013 campaign for governor and one in particular from an influential Chinese businessman who lives in the United States but is not a citizen.
The investigation is also focusing on the time Governor McAuliffe sat on the board of the Clinton Global Initiative. Think what you want, but there are no claims that the Clintons or the nonprofit organization did anything wrong.
Hillary said the same thing about her email over a year ago and they she is still under investigation.
The fact that the investigation into Terry McAuliffe started after the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server is suspicious, to say the least. Did the Hillary investigation help the FBI discover other criminal acts by her political allies?
Governor McAuliffe is a Democrat and carried a lot of clout in the Democratic Party. His name has even been thrown around as an option for a potential running mate for Hillary Clinton.
There are over 100 people who donated to both the Clinton Global Initiative that also donated to Terry McAuliffe.
Coincidentally, both Terry and Hillary are under a criminal investigation by the FBI. What do you think, is it all a coincidence or is all part of the same investigation? Let us know in the comments below.
