There was a time in our history that integrity was an integral part of the government and its officials. That those who had been elected into leadership roles understood the magnitude of what was being asked of them by the American people. Sadly, over the past 8 years, under the Obama administration, that integrity in elected government officials has been eroded. It seems that with every passing day we learn about another corrupt official in the Democratic party.
In fact, it is staggering the amount of corruption that has been revealed concerning those that served under Barack Obama. Between Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, and James Comey I cannot decide who is the worst. Now, we have learned that the acting director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Andrew McCabe is under investigation after these damning pictures were just discovered.
Seriously, the swamp cannot be drained any faster.
It seems that anyone that Barack Obama hired to work in his administration should be fired with no questions asked. It is disheartening to see the level of corruption that has been hiding out in our government for so long. So, it comes as no surprise that acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is being investigated by the Office of U.S. Counsel violating the Hatch Act according to a new report by Circa News.
The Hatch Act is important is incredibly important because it prohibts FBI agents from campaigning in partisan races. The act bans Bureau agents from taking part “in political activity in concert with a political party, a candidate for partisan political office, or a partisan political group.”
Which makes perfect sense since these agents refrain from campaigning since they are the ones that uphold the law.
So, when photos of McCabe surfaced that show him actively campaigning for his wife it raised red flags.
The Office of U.S. Special Counsel, the government’s main whistleblower agency, is investigating whether FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s activities supporting his wife Jill’s Democratic campaign for Virginia state senate in 2015 violated the Hatch Act’s prohibition against FBI agents campaigning in partisan races.
The agency’s probe was prompted by a complaint in April from a former FBI agent who forwarded social media photos showing McCabe wearing a T-shirt supporting his wife’s campaign during a public event and then posting a photo on social media urging voters to join him in voting for his wife.
“I am voting for Jill because she is the best wife ever,” McCabe put on a sign that he photographed himself holding. The photo was posted on her social media page a few days before the election, in response to Dr. Jill McCabe’s plea to “help me win” by posting photos expressing reasons why voters should vote for her, according to the complaint.
Other social media photos in the complaint showed McCabe’s minor daughter campaigning with her mother, wearing an FBI shirt, and McCabe voting with his wife at a polling station.
The Hatch Act prohibits FBI employees from engaging “in political activity in concert with a political party, a candidate for partisan political office, or a partisan political group.”
It defines prohibited political activity as “any activity directed at the success or failure of a partisan group or candidate in a partisan election.”
An ethics expert told Circa the photos raised legitimate questions about McCabe’s compliance with the law.
Now, while this claim is being challenged another interesting piece of information has come to light. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s office has released documents that show that McCabe attended a meeting with his wife and the governor in March 2015.
“This is a candidate recruitment meeting. McCabe is seriously considering running against State Senator Dick Black. You have been asked to close the deal,” the briefing memo for McAuliffe read.
Oh, but that is not all of it folks.
It was reported earlier that McCabe also has ties to the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Newsweek reported that in an earlier article.
“concerns came after revelations by media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, that a political action committee affiliated with Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who has ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, contributed almost $500,000 to the 2015 Virginia state Senate campaign of McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe. (She lost the election.) She also received $207,788 from the Virginia Democratic Party, which is connected to McAuliffe, a Democrat.”
The corruption is so rampant that even WikiLeaks tweeted about the obvious corruption.

Also, Virginia Senator Dick Black also tweeted in May that McCabe may have broken the campaign laws. It appears that FBI officials are not supposed to be showing support on social media.
And, this looks like McCabe is lending support and urging voters to vote for his wife.

This brings up a lot of questions that really should be answered.
McCabe has no right to be investigating anyone when he is currently being investigated himself. Is there anyone in the government that has any honesty and integrity left in them? It appears that it is true that money and power are the roots of all evil considering what has been discovered lately.
Thank goodness that we have President Trump in office now and that he is draining the swamp. It will take time to clean up all this mess, but I feel that we are on a good path to redemption.
