I have never actually understood how John McCain has managed to get away with calling himself a Republican. He’s pretty much Hillary Clinton in a less ugly suit. With the release of the House Intelligence FISA memo, championed by Republicans and derided by democrats, McCain is accusing President Trump and the rest of the GOP of doing Russian president Vladimir Putin’s work.
The memo, known as the either the House Intelligence, FISA, or Devin Nunes memo was released today and it is fairly shocking. In a nutshell, Hillary Clinton paid former British spy Christopher Steele to prepare the salacious and false “Trump Dossier.” This bogus piece on information was then used by Obama’s Justice Department to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
Steele admitted that he was intent on keeping Trump from winning the 2016 election and the FBI testified that without his BS dossier, they would not have sought a FISA warrant on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
In other words, a presidential candidate colluded with a foreign government to influence the outcome of a US election. That’s exactly what the democrats are accusing Trump of, but unlike that, this is real and implicates Hillary and Obama.
Now here’s when RINO McCain comes thundering in, not to condemn the illegal and unethical behavior of those involved, but rather to accuse his own party of being Putin’s puppets:
“The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s. The American people deserve to know all of the facts surrounding Russia’s ongoing efforts to subvert our democracy, which is why Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation must proceed unimpeded. Our nation’s elected officials, including the president, must stop looking at this investigation through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows. If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him,” said McCain in a statement.
Really? Hillary and Obama’s DoJ were just exposed for trying to steal the election from Trump and McCain is harping on the fact-free Russian collusion nonsense? Even worse, he didn’t just allude to, but actually stated, that Trump and many members of the GOP are guilty of working for Vladimir Putin.
In reality, John McCain is doing Nancy Pelosi’s work. The democrats fought like hell to keep this memo from being released and with good reason. It’s exposes some serious violations by top democrats and deep state Obamaite federal law enforcement officials. With McCain attacking the release of this memo as well as the Republicans, he’s clearly stating that he is a puppet of the Democratic Party.
The democrats are trying desperately to spin the contents of this memo as nothing, but here’s something to think about: If Donald Trump paid a Russian spy to prepare false opposition research on Hillary Clinton and then that information was used to obtain a federal warrant to spy on Hillary’s campaign, that would be an impeachable offense. There is no doubt that it would be the President’s undoing. Why then is it no big deal that Hillary and Obama’s DoJ did exactly this?
