Leadership at the FBI can’t seem to get a break this week. With Mr. Comey’s firing, Andrew McCabe is now Acting Director. But it gets complicated. McCabe’s wife received $750,000 when she ran for state senate in Virginia from a Political Action Committee controlled by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.Governor McAuliffe is the target of a federal FBI criminal investigation that is being led by Andrew McCabe. Attorney General Sessions is seeking to relieve McCabe of this ethical quagmire by appointing an interim director to lead the FBI who won’t need Senate confirmation.
