You Won’t Believe Who’s REALLY Behind Fake Trump/Russia Ties Claim

Written by  Robert Gehl

Sen. John McCain, the sworn enemy of the President-Elect, admitted Wednesday that he was the one who passed along the scurrilous and fabricated dossier of claims that there was a Russian blackmail plot of Donald Trump.

The Arizona lawmaker issued a public statement amid mounting questions over his role in the affair – and how anybody could publish a document so riddled with errors and unverified claims.

“Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,” he said, the Daily Mail is reporting. “Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI.

That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.”

That’s his official story, but Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein, said there’s much more to it than that:

Bernstein told CNN:

It came from a former British MI6 agent who was hired from a political opposition research firm in Washington who was doing work about Donald Trump for both Republican and Democratic candidates opposed to Trump.

They were looking at Trumps business ties, they saw some questionable things about Russians, about his businesses in Russia, they in turn hired this MI6 former investigator, he then came up with additional information from his Russian sources, he was very concerned by the implications of it, he then took it to an FBI colleague that he had known in his undercover work for years, he took it to this FBI man in Rome who turned it over to the bureau in Washington in August.

I'm sorry you don't appreciate Senator McCain's military service and sacrifice. Shame on you. Your comment is disgraceful. I suppose you think America can become great by saying such things. What goes around, comes around, my friend.

If you are thinking that McCain is looking more and more like a Democrat, it's because he is. Hence the term RINO. His job, and he accepted it, is to destroy selected Republicans from within.

Not much of an American are you McCain? You screwed all over Sarah Palin and now you are doing the same to Trump. Why don't you just retire, resign immediately and go on a long extended vacation somewhere, say, north Vietnam.

There is plenty of info on the U-Tube "Hanoi Hilton John McCain" to inform what he did in Vietnam that was certainly not what a decent American would do this is just more info to confirm what he did when he was wounded in Vietnam. He took his current wife to Vietnam would not even acknowledge this Vietnam couple that risk their lives to save John McCain until they could get him to where he would receive Medical care for broken arms that he had outside the plane when he crash landed.

I trust McCain less than I do Ryan. This McCain has become a turn-coat in my opinion. More and more I see him as a liberal Democrat.

This is not the first sneaky, dishonest thing meant to ruin an adversary's life that McShame has done,. He should be taken to the wood shed by the voters in Arizona. Always a RINO but this time he has gone too far.

I was once (for a short time) a sweat and shoeleather McCain supporter. No longer!
I consider McCain a turncoat. Wish I could take back that support.

The Veterans Affairs Department's system for verifying whether a veteran is alive or dead contributes to costly or embarrassing errors, including compensation being paid to veterans who have passed away and records indicating they had visited doctors after they died, according to an internal VA report. The report, a review of the VA's death eligibility system, found that the department's medical records system lists as active patients 2.7 million veterans who are, in fact, dead. Reason – unionized “work force”. And – of course – the politically correct leadership. And the chairman of the Senate VA committee is that low-IQ bloviating gasbag McCain.

Sen. McCain is my Senator. I cannot understand why he would do such a thing! He need to apologize to
Trump and to the American people. He seems to be extremely hostile to our next President instead of getting on board and helping move us all forward. I feel sorry that he has done this. He should think of retirement and IF he does not change, he will never get my vote again.

Elizabeth and other McCain voters-please do yourselves a favor and google McCain and the pow/mia. Read a little and then ask yourself why McCain would insist that all pow/mia records would be sealed until far into the future. Can you imagine having a relative still missing from the Vietnam War and being unable to access any information because it's still classified? Why would that be so important to a former prisoner of war that no one else can look for information on their relatives that were not realeased?

Trump expressed his concerns for this fake news. Did you notice all those reporters and their agencies Trump blackballed them from asking any questions pointing his finger to another reporter. Then these fake reporters kept talking and finally had to tell him to stop, was a Sec Serv Agt may have stepped in before Trump stepped off the stage to take action on the blackballed, vocal reporter.

As a result of his own, failed political aspirations, Mr. McCain - unfortunately - is a bitter, bitter man; his, like the man who drinks rat poison, then waits for the rat to die. A shame really. He should just resign, take his pension, and ride on....

McCain disgraces the republican party...He has always been a democrat, but he has no honor because he claim's to be what he is not. The report has already been debunked by the internet community. The faked report was made hear in the good ole USA, and run as NEWS by CNN/Buzzfeed...McCain was in the food chain on this one.

The media has become so discredited in general that it's hard to determine anymore the validity of stories. Though I wouldn't put it past McLame to be involved in this matter. He needs to go.

As much as I dislike having to say it, McCain has long entered the realm of certifiable kooks, and is causing unnecessary aggravation to president-elect Trump.

Let's hope he wises up and retires.

McCain has a chip on his shoulder about the people not considering home Presidential timber and his association with Graham who seems to think he's a gift to the US Senate. They both need to retire.
