Check out this excerpt from a now breaking report by the Daily Mail: “…McCain dispatched a ‘trusted emissary’ who flew across the Atlantic to meet the source of the documents at an airport that the Guardian did not name. The aide was instructed to look for a man with a copy of the Financial Times and that’s how the individuals met, with the source taking McCain’s emissary back to his house and giving the American a copy of the documents. Within 24 hours, the dossier was in Washington, though the contents of the file couldn’t be verified without an investigation. McCain, the Guardian said,
FTA: McCain, the Guardian said, was worried that his actions might be interpreted as revenge for some of the controversial comments Trump made about him – such as knocking the fact that the longtime senator had been a prisoner of war.
However, McCain decided to hand over the documents to FBI Director James Comey on December 9.
‘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 Wednesday in a statement about that matter.”
The writer tends to tie McCain’s action re the dossier to Trump’s support of Brexit, which was happening at about the same time. May be. But I’m inclined to view it as something far less lofty. Personal revenge.
Not only is he a two-faced double dealing creep who´d do anything as long as it is self-serving. It´s also no secret that there are POWs who won´t surface but who, behind the scenes, also take him apart for many things in Vietnam that take him a long way from the hero status.
He stinks worse than two year old rotting fish and should be recalled for cause. As bad as anything are progeny like daughter Megan who is now a Fox contributor...ugly as sin, twisted smile like dear old dad, angry at the world, overstuffed to where she has to be a 44EE with fat pudgy legs to match and opinions beyond belief. Why, oh why can´t he just go away...anywhere...and live off his filthy rich wife´s $$. That he has President Trump in his sights is no surprise. Let´s face it. No one voted for old Johnny, how come they voted for DJT is his question. And without that answer, he has no choice except to lie, cheat, attack, make an as out of himself daily...same old McCain.
John McCain is not an evil fellow on an island of his own. The GOPe, Bushies all in full cahoots with him although those at top of food chain just like Soros is for the left remain hidden behind a curtain like the Great Oz. The real powermasters are those never spoken of in the national media.
This is a big deal but not surprising. I´m not sure how FOX can keep tiptoeing around this issue whenever Megan McCain is on the air. I certainly realize she is not her father and is not responsible for what he does but it seems weird that he is never ever mentioned.
This ugly, little, hateful misfit would never, ever, have been a Naval aviator except that his dad and grand-dad were Admirals. His nickname is school was "McNasty," he´s always been a terrible person. Look what he did to his very loyal first wife. How in the heck does he keep getting re-elected in Ariz? What is wrong with the voters?
FTA: So consider the fact that Senator McCain, upon hearing of a possible anti-Trump dossier, immediately dispatched an operative to fly across the Atlantic to meet with a British operative to obtain the information which he then handed over to then FBI Director James Comey (who then likely began leaking its contents to the press). Ultimate recipient: The FBI Director James Comey was handed the document by McCain after its extraordinary transatlantic journey. And yet, when Mr. McCain was told of a dossier on Hillary Clinton existed, one that spanned many years, the senator did nothing. Nor did FBI Director Comey. Or the media.
The disgraceful fireplug McCain ought to be "leaned on" until he quits. He chose the wrong side in a war for American civilization. He sided with the Left. If he changes parties, nothing would be any different. Maybe Manchin would even the damage. There´s no excuse for the likes of McCain. Sass him ´til he pops.
As much as I agree w/all above, I ´m waiting for our prolific poster (Spanish for #1) to pour out his heart w/a litany of appropriate adjectives - I need a chuckle after reading about this slimy rat fink.
How does McCain win re-election? He is disliked, and has been around so long the voter has to be suffering from voter fatigue as well. If a Republican is ever found guilty of voter fraud, think McCain would be at the top of likely suspects. McCain has to be the left´s favorite Republican. How much are they helping him win? Can see democrats voting for McCain.
McCain can be vindictive, but can also see the globalistas using him for their own purposes. They are not mutually exclusive. McCain supports the globalists.
Consider this report with a measured amount of cynicism. Based on all historic references this could easily be just another example of well presented flak and countermeasures meant to protect the swamp, protect the Deep State, and feed a **distracting narrative. WASHINGTON – FBI General Counsel James A. Baker is purportedly under a Department of Justice criminal investigation for allegedly leaking classified national security information to the media, according to multiple government officials close to the probe who spoke with Circa on the condition of anonymity.(Snip)**The controlled source of the report, Circa, amplifies the possibility this could be simply a distraction
James A. Baker, who serves as the FBI‘s General Counsel, is reportedly one of three people who can corroborate fired FBI Director James Comey‘s version of events in a private Oval Office meeting between Comey and President Donald Trump. Comey wrote in a memo that Trump told him to stop the federal investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. On July 26, Circa reported that Baker is under investigation for allegedly leaking classified information to the press. Three sources told Circa that Baker is the top suspect in the investigation, but the site couldn’t confirm exactly what information Baker
House Republicans are poised to fund $1.6 billion for President Donald Trump´s border wall through a procedural maneuver designed to avoid a floor vote that might fail. The House Rules Committee is expected to attach funding for the wall that Trump has proposed building along the Mexican border to the so-called minibus, a downsized spending package for the Pentagon, the Energy Department, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the legislative branch — but not DHS, the Cabinet agency responsible for the wall. If an amendment to fund the wall is adopted by the Rules Committee, this line item can circumvent
Currently, the historian Thucydides is the object of debate among those within the Trump Administration and its critics, who, like scholars of the last three millennia, focus on lots of differing Thucydidean personas. Did Thucydides warn in deterministic fashion about ascendant powers like Athens that disrupt the existing order of Sparta and its Peloponnesian League—and thus prompt preventive attacks from established nations (“the Thucydides trap”)? Is the historian thus a guide to how to handle a rising China? Or did he remind us how wrong-headed (but nonetheless free and correctable) choices can turn a tense situation into a catastrophe? Was Thucydides, an admiral
White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon is reportedly upending traditional right/left divides on tax policy and pushing for a populist tax reform. Bannon’s plan would cut taxes on the middle classes but impose a new 44 percent top tax rate for the very rich — and it’s an idea that seems to have caught President Trump’s imagination. The current top tax rate is 39.6 percent and any Republican tax plan originating from the GOP House leadership would likely include deep tax cuts across the board, including for the very rich. A plan introduced by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and National Economic Director
White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci repeated that he and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus were like brothers, but warned that it was still unclear whether or not they would get along in the White House. “Some brothers are like Cain and Abel, other brothers can fight with each other and get along, I don’t know if this is repairable or not,” Scaramucci said on CNN’s New Day on Thursday morning. Scaramucci explained comments he made on Twitter on Wednesday night, after citing Priebus in a tweet about leakers. After Politico reported on Scaramucci’s public disclosure form, he suggested that
These Republicans. Has there ever been a more disloyal, spineless, leaderless bunch? The Democrats are insane of course – but at least they are fully devoted to their own madness. Republicans prefer a more two-faced approach, promising many things while doing none of them. The latest exhibit to be added to the long list of Republican broken promises is border security. Republicans are now running from the Trump “build that wall” promise that was critical in his winning the 2016 Election. So many Republicans are failing to follow up on this promise (they’ve been making it to voters for more than
Disregard the blue jeans and open collar shirt. This is former CIA Director John Brennan (who no doubt maintains very high-level contacts throughout the Deep State machine) attempting to make acceptable the premise of a coup against a sitting president. Don’t forget, it was Brennan who was caught lying about the Deep State’s massive data collection program on private citizens. He lied to Congress without penalty. That is the arrogance of Deep State masters. They feel themselves superior to the laws of of this nation. They maintain authority and control regardless of who is or isn’t inside the White House.
The press was on President Trump´s case for dumping on Jeff Sessions, speaking to the Boy Scouts, and banning the gender confused from the military. What was the clutch the pearls drama last week? Oh yeah, his son and his son-in-law met a ROOSHAN in Trump Tower. Wow. I want you to do yourself a favor. Bookmark this post, because the press will continue to report stupid stuff. It will depress you from time to time. The Republican senators will dump on him. Reports will say there is turmoil in the and White House. And polls will show only 20% job approval.
Chuck Schumer just warned President Trump not to appoint a replacement for Jeff Sessions as attorney general. Schumer said: "I am not confident in Senator Sessions’ ability to be a defender of the rights of all Americans, or to serve as an independent check on the incoming administration." Oh wait, that was what Schumer said in February when he voted against Jeff Sessions as attorney general.Just as he went from demanding the firing of Jim Comey as FBI director to anger over the firing, Schumer suddenly is the best friend of Jeff Sessions. This is Trumphobia. It drives small minds
Many opinions are visible on the subject of President Trump questioning the focus and competency of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. With that in mind perhaps it’s worthwhile pointing out a simple example of internal DOJ corruption that AG Sessions is intentionally avoiding. In October 2015 the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced it was dropping the investigation into the IRS, Lois Lerner, and the unlawful sharing of taxpayer data in the IRS targeting investigation surrounding True The Vote et al. The decision was laughable. The DOJ dropped an investigation into illegal activity conducted by the DOJ? Oh, ok.. As a direct consequence
Imran Awan, the Pakistan-born IT vendor to several top House Democrats under investigation since February, was arrested allegedly trying to flee the United States Tuesday. Some of the most important facts about this developing and potentially massive story: 1. Awan has been a staffer for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and other top congressional Democrats since 2004: UPI reports more than 24 different Democratic House offices used Awan’s services. Awan’s time with Wasserman Schultz included her entire tenure as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. Estimates are that Awan and his family received more than $4 million from House Democrats Link repaired
The moderator lauded Michelle Obama for her achievements over the past eight years and touched on the former first lady’s plans, but Tuesday’s conversation also veered into uncomfortable territory. It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again. Many had the same theme. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said, according to the Denver Post. “Knowing that after eight
Hillary Clinton is to call her new memoir about being beaten by Donald Trump ´What Happened´, her publisher announced Thursday. Her photograph will not feature on the cover - and she will call herself Hillary Rodham Clinton. She ran as Hillary Clinton. The memoir, published by Simon & Schuster promises to deliver the story of her defeat ´now free from the constraints of politics´. It will finally break the pattern of months by containing details of her ´mistakes´ - but firmly blame James Comey and the Russians. One friend of Clinton told The Hill it would be a ´bombshell´. The
At the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, someone sitting near Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn’t switch off a microphone. Collins was recorded discussing the federal budget and President Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing with a colleague — apparently Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee.
A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service. “Let´s meet face to face and you tell me I´m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal during her time in the service, when she kept her gender identity a secret, according to a 2015 profile in GQ. The President said that transgender service in the military causes
On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.
President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort
Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.
WASHINGTON -- Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) today warned President Trump against firing either Attorney General Jeff Sessions or special counsel Robert Mueller, saying he plans to introduce bipartisan judicial review legislation to protect the former FBI director and future special counsels. Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill that he´s "100 percent behind Jeff Sessions," who´s been the target of various slings from Trump over the past week, and referred to a Wednesday tweet from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa): Everybody in D.C. Shld b warned that the agenda for the judiciary Comm is set for rest of 2017. Judges first
President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion
Filmmaker Michael Moore says he tried to Hillary Clinton that Michigan and Wisconsin voters might lean toward Donald Trump before the 2016 presidential election but claims no one would listen. Moore appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night to promote his upcoming one-man Broadway show, The Terms of My Surrender. But the Michigan resident took time to discuss the current political climate, saying he ´never wanted to be more wrong in my life´ when warning people about Trump voters. ´I was trying to warn the rest of the country, out here, people who voted for Obama
President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that
Senator John McCain fired away at Donald Trump´s decision to ban transgender people from military service – and also for announcing a 180 degree turn on a complex issue via Twitter. The Senate Armed Services Committee chairman said in a statement that the military should welcome capable people ´regardless of their gender identity.´ He made the statement hours after his own dramatic return to the Senate for an Obamacare repeal vote, after getting a brain cancer diagnosis. Trump praised the former Vietnam POW for his action, although he went after McCain´s time as a POW during the campaign.
