The country is being run by criminals.  Yes, the FBI is investigating Hillary Clinton again.
It turns out that Clinton’s allies were feeding a half-million dollars to the campaign of the wife of an FBI official who would go on to help oversee the probe into Hillary Clinton’s email practices.

The pay to play game by the Clintons is even in the FBI. . . using criminal activities to keep Hillary safe from legal prosecution.
“We’ve never had a thing like this in the history of this country,” Donald Trump said at a Florida rally Monday afternoon, citing the “shocking” new findings.

The Wall Street Journal first reported Sunday night on the connections. According to the Journal, finance records show Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s PAC gave $467,500 to Dr. Jill McCabe’s 2015 state Senate campaign. The Virginia Democratic Party spent an additional $207,788 on the campaign, the Journal reported.

At the time of the campaign and of McAuliffe’s support, McCabe was associate deputy director. He later was promoted to deputy after the campaign ended, assuming an oversight role in the Clinton email investigation.

The FBI’s “Ethics and Integrity Program” manual makes clear McCabe would have had to flag the connections to senior management, and the final decision would come in writing.

In the section prohibiting employees from participating in criminal investigations in certain cases where there’s a personal or political relationship, the manual says an exception would be if: “The employee’s participation would not create an appearance of a conflict of interest to affect the public perception of the integrity of the investigation or prosecution.”

The FBI, in a statement, confirmed that McCabe sought internal guidance “to prevent against any actual or potential conflict-of-interest” and when his wife chose to run, “McCabe and FBI lawyers implemented a system of recusal from all FBI investigative matters involving Virginia politics, a process followed for the remainder of her campaign. During the campaign, he played no role, attended no events, and did not participate in fundraising or support of any kind.”
