McCain is More Dangerous to his own side than to the enemy.

Vindictive and petulant, he would rather undermine Trump with lies, than support what's best for US. He prefers the approval of the Washington Post and CNN over the facts and truth. 
Fool that he is, McCain wouldn't allow Obama to be called Hussein or to bring up Rev. Wright during his terrible presidential campaign. m/r

'I did what any citizen should do': Sworn Trump enemy John McCain admits HE handed smear dossier to FBI - because he had no idea if it was credible

  • Arizona senator who disowned Trump before election admits he handed document outlining claims of Kremlin blackmail to FBI
  • He was simply a concerned citizen, 80-year-old Republican claimed
  • Brief statement claims that he received it and gave it directly to FBI Director James Comey because he was 'unable to make judgment about accuracy'
  • But Washington reporter Carl Bernstein says former British ambassador to Moscow handed it to McCain
  • Ambassador has not been named - and author of report also gave to FBI agent he knew at its station in Rome months ago
  • Report was apparently paid for first BY Republican enemies of Trump then by Democrats

Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect - calling it 'what any citizen should do'.
McCain - a longstanding anti-Trump Republican who had disassociated  himself from the candidate's campaign weeks before the election - cast himself as an innocent and concerned member of the public as he justified his move.
He claimed he had no idea whether it was accurate or not - but that he believed the FBI should have it because it was 'sensitive'.
'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. It was then published in full by Buzzfeed.
