Trump Says Acting FBI Director ‘Got $700,000’ From Hillary Clinton. Is it True?

President Donald Trump tweeted early on Tuesday that acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe “got $700,000” from Hillary Clinton. It was at least the second time in less than a week that the president publicly made the allegation.
In a July 19 interview with The New York Times, Trump said, “We have a director of the FBI, acting, who received $700,000, whose wife received $700,000 from, essentially, Hillary Clinton. ’Cause it was through Terry. Which is Hillary Clinton.” Trump was referring to Terry McAuliffe, the Virginia governor and longtime Clinton ally.
Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has championed the accusation involving McCabe for months. The senator most recently mentioned it on July 12 during the confirmation hearing for Christopher Wray, Trump’s pending nominee for FBI director. In his opening remarks at the hearing, Grassley described McCabe as “a man whose wife ran for Virginia state Senate and accepted almost a million dollars from Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe’s political machine.”

Thanks for the article. Well, I think we will never know whether that’s true or no. Of course, Hillary Clinton is Trump’s opposite and during the presidential race they both have said quite many doubtful things about each other. Also I think that Donald Trump has enough resources to investigate whether that’s true or false. In addition, he better watches his own money. He’ll never need to turn to payday loans UK direct lenders like some people. Thus, I think that this question is not that important anymore.
