John McCain passes FBI dossier
alleging secret Trump-Russia contacts

The Guardian (UK), by Julian Borger

Original Article

Posted By:MainelySane, 1/11/2017 9:27:58 AM

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

Comments:
Senator McCain... then proceeded to schedule Intelligence Committee hearings to "hear" testimony about the dossier he passed on to the CIA.

We all recall Trump called out McCain earlier in the 2016 campaign. McCain is clearly trying to get even. Fake News apparently doesn´t originate with the MSM. It seems McCain provides it to the Guardian.
We also know how closely aligned the Podesta family is with Russia. And recall again, John Podesta was Hillary´s campaign chair. This whole thing is a misdirection campaign to shift focus from the real story.

RINO John doing what we all know he wants to do...destroy the Rebublican party. So far, nothing about this report is based on facts or evidence. Its the opinion of a hired opposition research operative that people swear we can trust. Just like they told us to trust the Alphabets about their coverage of Rebublicans. And to trust the polls that showed Hitlery was more popular than Jesus and unbeatable. So far, all this will do will drive the unhinged left to an incalculable insanity and feed DNC coffers with more donation money.

Time for the good people of AZ to step up and recall this demonstrated moron. I´m pretty sure a solid case can be made that he does not represent the State of AZ in the Senate, nor any of his constituents living there.

His constituents, BTW, live in DC, London and Teheran.

Agreed with earlier poster, this man should be recalled--and quickly. He´s not a Republican. He´s a mean, bitter old man.

Personally, I think anyone over the age of 80 should be retired from the Senate. If you have the privilege to live that long you should spend those later days enjoying the life God has given you.

He has already been censored by Arizona republicans so he is already a proven "traitor" of sorts. Why he got re-elected- thank the GOPe who apparently blackballed and minimized his primary opponent, (to be fair, kelli ward ran a terrible campaign) leaving us with his Rino nonsense for the next 6 years. Like other states, We have a few bastions of liberal idiocy in our cities, notable phoenix and tuscon. Hopefully trump and the new party will get behind the retirement of his useless shadow flake in the next election.

My guess is one of the goals for all of this is to give reason to McCain and left-nut Graham to switch parties. This would present us with a 50-50 split in the Senate. If Dems "found" 1 more, then Obama´s legacy lives on!

Mark my words, you will hear talk of this in the not too distant future...

I think honestly that he should resign over this. He should have a press conference and resign in disgrace. I think pressure should be brought by his own party. This isn´t some bimbo eruption, this was blatant treason against an incoming president. McCain is scum, should be censured and forced to resign.

At one time long long ago, I had some real respect for John McCain, but he has foolishly wasted and thrown away all of those good feelings by morphing into a complete ass.

He has completely spent all of the plus capital he had at one time and now needs to retire and shut his mouth. You are embarrassing yourself, your supporters and the country. Time to say goodbye John.

He was just re-elected to that seat, with the whole-hearted connivance of the GOP-e, the "in-crowd" of the RNC, the respectable ones. Those who think otherwise are, in McCain´s own words, "wacko birds". Remeber?
And it was those very same sub-human parasites of the GOP-e, the RNC, who forced this lousy hunk of dreck upon us as the "approved" candidate for President! I regret that Obama got in. I don´t regret, not one second, that McCain did not become President.
You won´t get him forced out of the Senate, not if the other Senators are willing to support lice such as McConnell. And you won´t get a recall from the voters in Arizona: you really think that ANYONE there does not know about him?

The show is not over. When the Oscars ended on Sunday night with the biggest flub in recent memory, thanks to Warren Beatty mistakenly reading La La Land out as the winner of best picture, when, in fact, the prize went to Moonlight, the night ended with an uproar — and more questions than answers. That´s why just after midnight PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm that tallies the Oscars, released an apologetic statement. "We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture," the statement read.

Former President George W. Bush believes President Trump is off track by fighting the media and speaking out against Islam in speeches and in his executive immigration order. Bush didn´t directly criticize Trump in an NBC interview on Monday, but he used his own time in office to contrast with what how the current president is using the presidency. When asked about Trump´s spats with the media, Bush said he never considered the press the "enemy of the American people," as Trump said last week.

I am simply speaking the plain and obvious truth, as politically incorrect as that truth might be right now. But with transgender issues dominating the news these days, and in light of Tucker Carlson’s epic takedown of Democratic leader Zac Petkanas on national TV last week (specifically, discussing gender-related questions), it appears that now is as good a time as ever to state some things clearly.

Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin announced plans to bring an undocumented medical student as a guest to President Trump´s first address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night. Durbin is one of the most vocal defenders of Barack Obama´s executive action giving legal status to millions of children of illegal immigrants who have lived in the United States for years. He said he is honored to bring Aaima Sayed, a third-year medical student at Loyola University Chicago, to Trump´s speech to Congress. The Illinois Democrat has been pressing Trump to exclude these children, known as Dreamers, from any efforts

Fast-food chain Wendy´s is planning to install self-order kiosks at about 1,000 locations across the country by the end of 2017 to cut labor costs, The Columbus Dispatch reported. (Snip) The report did not indicate the locations getting the kiosks. Wendy´s said it already offered kiosks to its restaurants last year and that both customers and franchisees have demanded more of the service. According to the report, the company said the kiosks would help reduce labor costs and give younger customers the experience they prefer. The kiosks cost about $15,000 each. Earlier this month, Wendy´s said it opened 150 new restaurants

Do you remember where you were when “Brokeback Mountain” lost in the best picture category? It was in 2006, my first year in college, and I was at a crowded Oscar party. When Jack Nicholson read the contents of the envelope, he delivered the news that “Crash” had won with an implied shrug as if to say, “That’s Hollywood, Jake.” Everyone in the room with me was stunned, almost unable to move. “Brokeback” had been the unbeatable front-runner, a cultural phenomenon that was also critically beloved. It had completed a near sweep during the awards season, winning honors from the British Academy of Film
