McCain Shared Unverified Allegations Against Trump

The Guardian is reporting that Arizona 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 Daily Caller reported Tuesday night that “BuzzFeed editors tweeted that they were crying as President Barack Obama delivered his farewell address. This came just a few hours after the site published an unverified report by an alleged former British spy claiming President-elect Donald Trump performed lewd acts with Russian prostitutes.”

In its article, in which the organization published the unverified report, BuzzFeed claimed that “Harry Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson tweeted Tuesday that the former Senate Democratic leader had seen the documents before writing a public letter to FBI Director James Comey about Trump’s ties to Russia. And CNN reported Tuesday that Arizona Republican John McCain gave a “full copy” of the memos to Comey on Dec. 9, but that the FBI already had copies of many of the memos.”

CNN reported that “on December 9, Senator John McCain gave a full copy of the memos — dated from June through December, 2016 — to FBI Director James Comey.”

McCain despises Trump, and no one would be surprised if the elderly senator was eager to share information, no matter how dubious the source, in an effort to damage the newly elected president.

According to the CNN report, “The raw memos on which the synopsis is based were prepared by the former MI6 agent, who was posted in Russia in the 1990s and now runs a private intelligence gathering firm. His investigations related to Mr. Trump were initially funded by groups and donors supporting Republican opponents of Mr. Trump during the GOP primaries.”

According to The Atlantic:

“The document also makes specific claims about contacts between people working for Trump and Russian officials. It alleges that Michael Cohen, special counsel to Trump, was central to “the ongoing secret liaison relationship between the New York tycoon’s campaign and the Russian leadership,” and that he met secretly with Kremlin officials in Prague in August 2016.

Reached by telephone on Tuesday night, Cohen denied the dossier’s allegations.

The story is “totally fake, totally inaccurate,” Cohen said.

“I’m telling you emphatically that I’ve not been to Prague, I’ve never been to Czech [Republic], I’ve not been to Russia,” Cohen said. “The story is completely inaccurate, it is fake news meant to malign Mr. Trump.”

  1. And you would expect what our of the imbecile Little Johnnie or Lindsay Graham. They will go to no ends to try to damage Trump and the country for their own ends which are maintain the establishment so that the political elite can run this country. I really can’t believe that the voters gave the geriatric McCain 6 more long years to damage the state and our nation. Before his term is up, he will have to have an aid to carry a drool rag to wipe his chin. How utterly pathetic.

  2. My question here is How come McCIn is giving these documents to the FBI and none of the other intel communities have uncovered it before now and I find it awfully convenient that it has sexual exploits in it. A very suspect report knowing how bad McCain hates Trumo. I am taking this with a grain of salt

    As the article states this information has been out for some time and not even the MSM(CBS, ABC, NBC) including CNN felt comfortable reporting this fake news. Yet to advance his personal interests. McCain has proven himself to be interested in advancing ONLY his interests. Sadly, he appears to have lost the main ingredient in public service, integrity.

  4. Cheryl V Tucson | January 11, 2017 at 9:13 am |

    Please join me in asking Sen McCain to resign from his Senate position. His Tucson office # is 670-6334. Let them know that you no longer want to be represented by this man after his admission of promoting false and damaging information. His actions make him too big of a risk to national security and this lapse in judgement is not what America needs at this point. or ever.

    Thank him for his past service and bid him farewell.

  5. I am just amazed at how far this demented old fool has gone. He has done nothing for Az, and he is just jealous because he couldn’t be prez. Heck I didn’t even vote for him. I sense a coup coming, there is definitely a disturbance in the force.

  6. Can McCain be recalled?

  7. Cheryl V Tucson | January 11, 2017 at 10:34 am |

    No. Senators and Congressman can not be recalled. They can be removed for just cause/malfeasance in office. A publicly forced resignation is much cleaner and faster. Then we hold a special election to replace him.

    Thank you for your service Sen McCain. We no longer wish to allow you to continue.

    Make AZ great again.

    • As I have posted before, McCain should be getting out of prison now for his role in the Lincoln Savings and Loan fiasco. You know, McCain helped Charles Keating all he could to gain insider information for a campaign contribution. The ethics committee let him off with a slap on the wrist. Little Johnnie is worthless to the State of Arizona and the United States.

  8. McCain should go before the Ethics Committee and questioned severely for passing on false information about Trump. His behavior is disgusting.

  9. McCain often says “politics ain’t beanbag” but littler did we know how much of a political sleazebag he is, though his primary campaign against Kelli Ward indicated as much. Pathetic.

  10. Cheryl V Tucson | January 11, 2017 at 11:38 am |

    That was the Keating 5, of which DeConcini, Cranston, Glenn, and Riegle were implicated with McCain. I had not noticed until today that they were all Democrats. And then John who said he was a Republican. But the McCains had vacationed at the Keating’s Bahama home. They also invested $360,000 in his shopping center project. Per an AZ Central 2014 story entitled, “Keating 5 Scandal Still Dogs McCain 25 years later. It was written about the passing of Charles Keating.

  11. Senator McCain it is time for you to step down from your office. You did a great service for our country in the past, but you are now a liar, scam artist and do not represent your consequents any longer. Do the right thing and Resign Immediately.

    • Mike, just wrote a scathing letter to McCain’s office (of course it will end up in the circular file and he will never see it) asking him to retire immediately before he opens his mouth one more time and proves to all of us what a an old fool he really is. Told him he needs to use his Sedona home much more and quit making a fool of himself and the State of Arizona.

  12. It is only fake news if Trump disagrees with it. It wasn’t fake news that he was spreading around about Obama’s birthplace; but how soon we forget. McCain may have been the one to give it to the FBI and may have an axe to grind, but don’t kid yourself; where there is smoke; there is fire. Now if the journalists will only do their jobs now because they sure as shit didn’t do it before the election.

    • Cc, or anytime during Obama’s time in office. (Re:
      Journalist doing there jobs)

      Are we still marking your words that Hillary is going to win?
      That is what you said daily wasn’t it?

  13. sisillia, bho was covered with ‘fake news’ for 8 years. Just look at all the tv air time he is receiving now that he is on his way out! Did little to nothing worthwhile yet says he was the best thing since sliced bread (not). just see what a little old lady had to say about how good he was:

    This is certainly a different way to look at what is happening………………..

    One 82-year-old lady loves Obama and she may have a very good point. She says that Obama is amazing, and is rebuilding the American dream! She gives us an entirely new slant on the “amazing” job Obama is doing, and she says that she will thank God for the President.
    Keep reading for her additional comments and an explanation. When discussing Obama, she says:

    1. Obama destroyed the Clinton Political Machine, driving a stake through the heart of Hillary’s presidential aspirations -something no Republican was ever able to do.

    2. Obama killed off the Kennedy Dynasty – no more Kennedys
    trolling Washington looking for booze and women wanting rides home.

    3. Obama is destroying the Democratic Party before our eyes!
    Dennis Moore had never lost a race. Evan Bayh had never lost a race.
    Byron Dorgan had never lost a race. Harry Reid – soon to be GONE!
    These are just a handful of the Democrats whose political careers
    Obama has destroyed. By the end of 2016, dozens more will be gone. Just think, in December of 2008 the Democrats were on the rise. In two election cycles, they had picked up 14 Senate seats and 52 House seats. The press was touting the death of the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party. However, in just one term, Obama put a stop to all of this and gave the House and the Senate – back to the Republicans.

    4. Obama has completely exposed liberals and progressives for
    what they are. Sadly, every generation seems to need to re-learn
    the lesson on why they should never actually put liberals in charge. Obama is bringing home the lesson very well: Liberals tax, borrow and spend.
    Liberals won’t bring themselves to protect America. Liberals want to take over the economy Liberals think they know what is best for everyone.
    Liberals are not happy until they are running YOUR life.

    5. Obama has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone since Reagan. In one term, he has rejuvenated the Conservative Movement and brought out to the streets millions of freedom loving Americans. Name one other time when you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in taking back America!

    6. Obama, with his “amazing leadership,” has sparked the greatest period of sales of firearms and ammunition this country has seen. Law abiding citizens have rallied and have provided a “stimulus” to the sporting goods field while other industries have failed, faded, or moved off-shore.

    7. In all honesty, 4 years ago I was more afraid than I have been in my life.
    Not afraid of the economy, but afraid of the direction our country was going. I thought, Americans have forgotten what this country is all about. My neighbors and friends, even strangers, have proved to me that my lack of confidence in the greatness and wisdom of the American people has been flat wrong.

    8. When the American people wake up, no smooth talking teleprompter reader can fool them! Barack Obama has served to wake up these great Americans! Again, I want to say: “Thank you, Barack Obama!” After all, this is exactly the kind of hope and change we desperately needed!!

    9. He has saved Carter’s legacy and made Jimmy Carter happy, since Jimmy is no longer the worst president we’ve ever had. Credit goes to where credit is due. I feel better now !

    Pretty soon quoting John McLame will be on par with quoting the National Enquirer. I’m sure Hanoi John is impressive from a distance, it’s only up close that he becomes a monumental disappointment to humanity. Take your Geritol John and get back to your nap.
    Learn from history and take Abraham Lincoln’s advice, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and speak out and remove all doubt.
    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
    Sen. McLame is the poster child of why the 17th amendment should be repealed in it’s entirety. McLame was reelected only to keep Kirkpatrick out, given the choice of her liberal spew or his ineptitude, voters had little choice.
    The Seventeenth Amendment (Amendment XVII) to the United States Constitution established the popular election of United States Senators by the people of the states. The amendment supersedes Article I, §3, Clauses 1 and 2 of the Constitution, under which senators were elected by state legislatures.


  15. smells like a war is brewing…

  16. John Spitler | January 12, 2017 at 3:11 pm |

    Once more with all the noise about McCain maybe it’s time for a change, but a big change:

    Ever since 1913, we have been electing our US Senators by the people. In today’s world, the constituents don’t know whether to contact their Representative to Congress or their U.S. Senator. Often both are contacted, or, just the one that happens to be of the political party of choice.

    Prior to 1913, Senators were appointed by the State Legislature as called for by the Constitution. The founders of the Constitution intended to have each State, no matter the size, be equally represented by 2 Senators. The Senators were there to do the States’ bidding and could be replaced by the State if the Senators were not properly representing the States’ needs. Conversely, the people of each State would be represented proportionally to the State population by Congressional Representatives and voted in by the people. The Representatives were beholding to the people. Therefore, a balance of States power was attained.

    Then in 1913, during the Wilson Administration, Article 17 of the Constitution was amended to allow for the people to direct elect the Senators. Seems to me that what they thought was a good idea then, doesn’t seem like such a good idea today. I for one would like to repeal the 17th amendment and go back to the original founders thinking, i.e., States appoint the Senators. What about you?

  17. How many times will Arizonans re-elect this pompous elitist. Insanity seems to be the rule when it comes to AZ voters, especially imbecilic Tucson citizens. Enough already!

  18. there was a time in Germany that this type of ‘fake news’ started moving about the nation – it was the Nazi movement – it was a time then the Jews were blamed along with disinters of the progressives.. kill them all became reality in not to much time – a couple of years. The population said nothing as the final solution occurred around them – ‘fake news’ is all it was right – just something in the way of the progressives of that day, the progressives know better and whatever it takes they were willing – for the mother land and peoples of the world, the higher ground was theirs. It’s sounding more and more familiar now and again – the Jews are being blamed; Obamaman has assured the world that the UN will prosecute the land of Israel for some years.. to the end time return of Christ – for there is no way to turn his anti-Israel resolution he and his troop of progressives created by abstaining the USA vote when the rest recently voted against Israel, a last ditch strike at Israel by Obaman. Keep in mind the Abraham Covenant … God promised Abraham regrading Israel … I will bless those who bless you. I will curse those who curse you…. this is the course the ‘progressive’ USA has taken. ITS NOT OVER.. this is just the beginning – will the TRUMP presidency fall – will the progressives take over; understand it will bring the war of the destruction of Mystery Babylon which this nation has taken it course on being.. impossible ramble you say. Lets just hope I’m 100% off – for the accusations against Russia, the villain they are being accused and made out to be are those of words of a brewing war Russia is preparing for – will the progressives win out? is the mark of that beast that is coming as is noted in prophecy to that land of Mystery Babylon – in our life times… or just more ‘fake news’. This is one where ‘you decide’ there are no choices as to participate or not.
