McAuliffe to CNN: 'Your Story Was 100 Percent Wrong'

Gov. Terry McAuliffe has been starring in many headlines lately about his attempts to circumvent the Virginia Supreme Court and restore felons' voting rights. Yet, on CNN on Tuesday, CNN anchor Erin Burnett confronted him about another recent scandal.

In May, McAuliffe came under FBI investigation for reportedly accepting campaign donations from Chinese businessman Wang Wenliang, who also reportedly donated to the Clinton Foundation. Those contributions appeared to violate a U.S. election law that prohibits foreign nationals from donating to federal, state or local elections.

When Burnett brought it up to McAuliffe on Tuesday at the Democratic National Convention, he got testy and demanded an apology from her network.

"First of all the story's completely false," he said. "CNN got it 100 percent wrong and they owe me and apology. This man has never been under federal investigation. Your story was 100 percent wrong."

"Just tell your news get your facts right before you report them," he added.

When Burnett pressed McAuliffe as to whether the donations could become an issue for Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, he deferred an answer by defending the Clinton's Foundation's efforts around the globe.

For what it's worth, McAuliffe's lawyer confirmed in May that the FBI is indeed investigating his client.
