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?

This was totally malicious and would not stand the test of ´freedom of the press or speech´. This was a direct attack on Trumps character, it was not news or anything that a rational person would consider news!

Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security. The foundation of the United States’ unrivaled global leadership rests only in part on our military

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, is so New Jersey that her Secret Service codename is “Blueberry,” but what many may not know, is her grandfather allegedly belonged to the Mafia in the 80s. Jimmy “The Brute” DiNatale, Conway’s late grandfather, allegedly had mob ties and was a “significant criminal associate" of Nicodemo “Little Nicky” Scarfo – the heir to the Bruno crime family based in Philadelphia, according to a memorial service page and law enforcement officials who spoke to the Philly Voice.

Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. on Tuesday said he and his estranged wife Sandi Jackson are $1.8 million in debt thanks to legal bills from their federal criminal prosecution and mounting fees from an acrimonious divorce playing out in courtrooms in two cities. Jackson Jr. talked to reporters during an at-times rambling question-and-answer session following a brief hearing in his divorce case at the Daley Center, opining on the state of Washington politics and the best way to settle the couple’s bills. Neither Jackson nor his wife, former alderman Sandi Jackson, has worked since their release from prison after serving sentences

The family of Seth Rich, a staffer for the Democratic National Committee who was murdered last July in Washington, D.C., has launched a crowdfunding page to raise money for investigating the unsolved case. Aaron Rich, the brother of the victim, created the GoFundMe page on Sunday to draw attention to the unsolved crime that took place July 10 in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest D.C. and raise $200,000. "One thing that no one tells you, and something we weren´t prepared to hear when we lost Seth, is that if a case isn´t solved immediately, it could take months or years before

As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday. "And that is, there is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that´s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems unseemly, and there ought to be delay." (Video) (Earlier Tuesday, in remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer said it would be "unseemly" to move forward so fast with confirming Gorsuch while the "gray

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham on Tuesday questioned Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch about what it would take to impeach President Trump. (Snip) "In case President Trump is watching, which he may very well be, one you did a good job picking Judge Gorsuch," Graham said to laughs, "and number two—here´s the bad part—if you start waterboarding people, you may get impeached. Is that a fair summary?" "Senator, the impeachment power belongs to this body," Gorsuch answered.

Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move

State Waste: The Golden State´s vaunted bullet-train project, planned to connect San Francisco to Los Angeles, may be in its financial death throes. If so, it´s probably the best fiscal news for the Golden State in years. To say that Gov. Jerry Brown´s pet project, the so-called high-speed train, is troubled would be an understatement. From the very beginning, it has been a testament to political hubris, fiscal irresponsibility, outright lies and abysmal planning. The bullet train idea was floated on a blustery gust of political promises in 2008, when proponents put the high-speed rail to the state´s voters in
