Just when you thought the MSM scandal couldn’t get any worse, we find out that Senator John McCain was one of the sources that helped pass the #FakeNews about Trump that has CNN in hot water.
‘I did what any citizen should do. I received sensitive information and handed it to the FBI,’ he told CNN – the network which broke the story that the document existed.
The fake document was then published in full by Buzzfeed, an outspoken organization on #FakeNews.
The 80-year-old Republican says he was simply a concerned citizen. NO. You are a war hero who has failed as a Senator. But you are definitely a Senator. You are NOT a civilian as your connotation tries to claim.
Washington reporter Carl Bernstein says an unnamed former British ambassador to Moscow handed it to McCain.
McCain tried to claim that he had no idea whether it was accurate or not. He still believed the FBI should have it because it was ‘sensitive’.
‘That’s why I gave it to the FBI. I don’t know if it is credible or not but the information I thought deserved to be delivered to the FBI, the appropriate agency of government.’
He added: ‘It doesn’t trouble me because I don’t know if it is accurate or not. I have no way of corroborating that.
‘The individual gave me the information. I looked at it. After receiving that information I took it to the FBI.’
How demented. It is seriously time for McCain to retire.
I have always said that I appreciate his military service and sacrifice to our country, and that when he first became a Senator that he did a good job.
He has stayed way too long. Most of what he does benefits himself, and he is not following the will of the American people. He is not a statesman, he is a career politician that spends most of his time playing “I’m important!”.
Look up Republican Establishment and I am sure you will find Senator John McCain.
