The FBI is investigating $120,000 in donations to Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s campaign and inauguration.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the donation were made by Chinese businessman Wang Wenliang.

The governor’s attorney said McAuliffe and his staff were unaware of the investigation.

The lawyer, Marc Elias, said “contributions to the campaign from Mr. Wang were completely lawful. The governor will certainly cooperate with the government if he is contacted about it.’’

Wang’s companies also have donated between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.

The FBI is completing its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server while she was secretary of state.

ABC News reports that Clinton likely will be interviewed.

The FBI has already interviewed close aides to Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner for president.

“With a person like Secretary Clinton, the FBI probably assumes they are going to get one chance to interview her, not only because she is a prominent person but because she is very busy right now with the presidential campaign,” said David Deitch, a former Justice Department prosecutor. “It makes sense they would defer interviewing her until late in their investigation.”

Clinton said she look forward to the investigation being completed and said she was “more than ready to talk to anybody, anytime.”

“I hope that this is close to being wrapped up,” Clinton said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on May 8.

Amid allegations of mismanagement, Kelly Hoggan, TSA’s assistant administrator for the Office of Security Operations, has been removed from his position.

CNN reports the House Oversight Committee was not happy with allegations of retaliation against whistleblowers and the $90,000 in bonuses that Hoggan received.

The bonuses came at a time when security lines were lengthening.

TSA Administrator Peter Neffenger said he did not “tolerate” potential retaliation and planned to “look into it.”

A memo from Neffenger to employees also announced several changes to TSA management.

“These adjustments will enable more focused leadership and screening operations at critical airports in the national transportation system,” Neffenger wrote in the memo, which CNN obtained from an official within the agency.

Star-Ledger: Homeland Security, TSA Mismanaged Security at Airports

The head of the Transportation Safety Administration announced recently that the agency has a plan to deal with the long lines at many of the most important airports in America.

The plan is to warn us that the lines will get even worse this summer.

This is just the latest outrage that makes a lot of travelers hate the TSA. That feeling was buttressed for me when I was talking with a guy I went to high school with at Donovan Catholic in Toms River during the late 1960s.

After 9/11, this guy got a job with the TSA as a “behavioral officer.” There are 3,000 of these.  They walk around airports looking for people acting who are acting suspiciously.

The airport he  walks around is O’Hare in Chicago, the busiest airport in America and the one with the longest lines. When I asked him how many potential terrorists the behavioral officers at O’Hare had caught, he said none.

But they and the customs agents there sure did miss a couple big ones. That would be Syed Farook and his Pakistani-born, Saudi-reared fiancee Tashfeen Malik. They sailed through customs there on July 27, 2014, after traveling from Saudi Arabia and then switched planes for California.
