Acting FBI director Andrew McCabe is currently facing 3 different federal inquiries into his behavior. One of the investigations is directed by the Office of U.S. Counsel with regard to an alleged violation of the Hatch Act.
The Hatch Act forbids FBI agents from engaging in politics, more specifically to campaign/participate in partisan races. And that’s exactly what Andrew McCabe was doing, i.e. he campaigned for his wife (photos below), thus raising questions about his compliance with the Hatch Act.
The inquiry is aimed at the 2015 race for state senate, when Andrew McCabe seems to have been involved in his wife Jill campaign as she was running for office as a Virginia senator. FBI employees are prohibited by the Hatch Act from engaging in, let me quote:
political activity in concert with a political party, a candidate for partisan political office, or a partisan political group.
Political activity is defined as:
“any activity directed at the success or failure of a partisan group or candidate in a partisan election.”
Andrew McCabe replaced former FBI director James Comey following the latter’s getting fired by President Trump. Acting FBI director has obvious ties with Hillary Clinton campaign, as his wife received campaign contributions from both the Virginia Democratic Party and a political action committee who has ties with both Hillary and Bill Clinton.
