Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe — who is under FBI investigation related to campaign donations — held a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton on Sunday.
The Clinton campaign sponsored an “Afternoon with Terry McAuliffe” in Washington, Virginia, according to a listing still on the campaign’s website.
The event was hosted by Laura Kennedy, Steph Ridder, and Jane Whitfield and held at the home of Beverly and John Fox Sullivan in Rappahannock County.
Contribution amounts ranged from $500 to $5,000.
Will Hillary return the potentially tainted funds McAuliffe raised for her lass than 24 hours ago?

CNN reports on the governor’s predicament:
Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is the subject of an ongoing investigation by the FBI and prosecutors from the Justice Department’s public integrity unit, U.S. officials briefed on the probe say.
The investigation dates to at least last year and has focused, at least in part, on whether donations to his gubernatorial campaign violated the law, the officials said. …
As part of the probe, the officials said, investigators have scrutinized McAuliffe’s time as a board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, a vehicle of the charitable foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton.
There’s no allegation that the foundation did anything improper; the probe has focused on McAuliffe and the electoral campaign donations, the officials said.
Spokespeople for the Justice Department and the FBI declined to comment.
