Trump re-tweets falsehoods about outgoing FBI Deputy Director's wife

Trump questioned how the Deputy Director's wife was given USD 7,00,000 by Clinton camp for a senate race but no such transaction happened.

West Palm Beach (Florida): President Donald Trump is reacting to reports about the retirement of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by re-tweeting falsehoods about McCabe's wife.

Trump tweeted on Sunday: "How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin' James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given USD 7,00,000 for wife's campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?"

McCabe's wife, Jill, did not get USD 7,00,000 in donations from Clinton for a Virginia state Senate race in 2015.

The donations came from Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe's political action committee and the Virginia Democratic Party before McCabe was promoted to deputy director and a supervisory role in the Clinton email investigation.

McCabe became acting FBI director in May after Trump fired James Comey.
