Chaffetz asks FBI's McCabe why still overseeing Hillary probe

(Breitbart) A key member of the Congressional Oversight Committee is questioning why the FBI Deputy Director whose wife received up to $675,000 in political donations from a prominent Clinton operative is still heading up the investigation into Hillary’s email scandal.

At the end of October, news broke that state senate candidate Jill McCabe was the recipient of nearly $500,000 in donations from a Democrat PAC run by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a long-time close associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton and one-time chairman of the Democratic National Committee. The candidate, who ultimately lost her bid, also received another $200,000 from the state Democratic Party, over which McAuliffe has heavy influence.

First-time candidate for office, Jill McCabe is the wife of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man heading up one of the Bureau’s investigations into the illicit email server Hillary Clinton hid in her home for use when she was President Obama’s Secretary of State.
