McCain’s latest “bipartisan” effort to hamstring Pres. Trump
February 11, 2017
Still hallucinating that he’s president, John McCain is working feverishly –with a contingent of Democrats and a couple of Republicrats — in an effort to pull the rug out from the man who actually was elected….President Donald Trump
Since hypocritically withdrawing his brief primary endorsement and declaring he would not vote for Trump, the petulant McCain has tried to undermine the president at every turn.
His latest gambit is a bill that would require any decision by the Trump administration to ease sanctions against Russia to be subject to congressional oversight — which amounts to McCain giving McCain the authority that has eluded him. Where was McCain’s voice when Barack Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry oversaw the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran, sweetening the transaction with an unthinkable $400 million ransom for hostages, and what National Review characterizes as “a carefully structured $1.7 billion side payment.”
