The Office of U.S. Counsel is currently investigating Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe for possible violation of the Hatch Act, 100% Fed Up reports.
McCabe, a key figure in the federal investigation into Russia’s election interference, is the focus of a federal administrative inquiry for possible violation the Hatch Act that disallows FBI agents from participating in partisan campaigns.
The Office of U.S. Special Counsel, which is the whistleblower agency of the government, is trying to determine if McCabe was actively campaigning for his wife Jill’s 2015 Democratic campaign for a state senate seat in Virginia.
The investigation was triggered by a complaint in April from a former FBI agent who sent social media photos of McCabe to the agency, according to a report by Circa.
The photos show the FBI chief wearing a campaign T-shirt for his wife during a public event and urging people on social media to vote for his wife.
Circa also reported that Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe also released documents showing McCabe and his wife meeting with the governor in March 2015 to discuss Jill McCabe’s plans of running as a Democrat for the Senate in Virginia.
