Uh-oh. Looks like Sen. McCain might be in McTrouble!
Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has made a career out of being ‘bi-partisan’.
To some of us, that looks like he’s just lukewarm on Republican policies, and will defer to leftist agenda at the expense of conservatism.
But hey, what do we know. We just know that he bailed on his campaign promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
We’ve even asked the question: ‘Is John McCain’s Political Legacy A Pathetic McCrapsicle?’
It looks as though McCain’s bi-partisanism extended to getting his own hands dirty in the debunked Trump-Russia dossier debacle.
Along with his ‘bi-partisan’ buddies, Bill and Hillary Clinton.
1. John McCain was the one that passed the Russia Dossier to the FBI
In December, it was McCain who notoriously passed the controversial dossier documents produced by the Washington opposition research firm Fusion GPS to then FBI Director James Comey, whose agency reportedly utilized the dossier as some of the basis for its probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
This was reported all over the place. You can read the Jan. 11 article from the New York Post here:
John McCain: I gave Russia blackmail dossier on Trump to FBI
2. Although he was ‘unable to make a judgment about their accuracy’ — he forwarded it anyway.
Does that sound to you like he didn’t believe the outrageous claims in there?
Sure, there were the salacious bits of peeing prostitutes, but we mean the other salacious claims that Donald Trump could be a ‘puppet’ President?
He really believed that?
“Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the director of the FBI,” McCain said at the time. “That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.”
Can’t you just hear his concern?
3. He stayed silent on Uranium One connection with Bill, Hillary, & Barry

And yet, with all the open reporting on the Clinton-Russia connections he didn’t mention that.
It’s not like he didn’t know. Much of this was reported on, and he was an ‘insider’.
Maybe he was just being ‘bi-partisan’ again.
4. We have no idea how McCain got the Dossier in the first place.
McCain has been silent on this. It has been reported that the Fusion GPS ‘opposition research’ which became this dossier was initially funded by an unnamed Republican.
McCain’s initial January 11 statement didn’t explain how he came to have the document, or if he knew who had funded it. He continues to remain silent on that point.
5. He says he didn’t provide it to BuzzFeed.
In a moment reminiscent of Hillary’s Benghazi testimony, ‘What difference, at this point, does it make?‘, Sen. McCain told The Daily Caller in what was described as a ‘testy’ exchange, ‘I don’t know why you’re digging this up now.’
Well, because it’s news now.
After all, it’s been 10 months of Russia, Russia, Russia, and it is finally being reported that the dossier has a Russian connection.
Does Sen. McCain not know how news media works?
6. He ‘consulted’ with a foreign national — a former British Ambassador to Moscow about the claims.
This one is pretty serious.
A sitting senator went to a foreign national with possible dirt on our President-elect.
Sir Andrew Wood, a former British ambassador to Moscow, said McCain first consulted him about the claims inside the dossier at a security conference in Canada shortly after last November’s presidential election. Wood stated that McCain had obtained the documents from the senator’s own sources. “I told him I was aware of what was in the report but I had not read it myself, that it might be true, it might be untrue. I had no means of judging really,” Wood further told BBC Radio 4 in January.
This is just what Hillary’s doing — undermining the President on foreign soil.
I’m old enough to remember that members of the same party just didn’t do that.
You’d think that Sen. McCain would remember, too.
After all, this is his 6th term as a Senator.
You know what this makes me think of?
A Mark Twain quote.
You can even wear it.
Even Mark Twain wanted to drain the swamp!
“Politicians are like diapers; they need to be changed often and for the same reason” – Mark Twain.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
Show your elected officials all the ‘love’ they deserve. Get yours now!
Thanks for coming out, Sen. McCain, but I’m thinking that this Grandpa’s words of wisdom might be a better fit for conservatives:
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
