In what may be a new record for President Donald Trump, he made four false claims in one sentence of a tweet on Saturday.

The sentence was about Hillary Clinton, Trump's 2016 election opponent, and Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director and acting director of the FBI.

His Saturday sentence on Twitter: "Was Andy McCabe ever forced to pay back the $700,000 illegally given to him and his wife, for his wife's political campaign, by Crooked Hillary Clinton while Hillary was under FBI investigation, and McCabe was the head of the FBI???"

Trump was referring to $675,288 that was donated to the unsuccessful 2015 Virginia state Senate campaign of McCabe's wife, Dr. Jill McCabe: $207,788 from the state Democratic Party and $467,500 from Common Good VA, the political action committee (PAC) of then-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

"There is no evidence that Hillary Clinton provided political or financial support to Dr. McCabe's 2015 senate campaign," the Justice Department's inspector general wrote in a 2018 report.

McCabe voluntarily recused himself from the FBI investigations into Clinton's email practices and the Clinton Foundation in November 2016, after an October 2016 Wall Street Journal article about the donations.
