There’s been a lot of comment on the release of the Nunes FISA abuse memo. As expected, Democrats are desperately trying to spin it. So perhaps it should not come as a surprise that their adopted son, Sen. John McCain (not really Republican-AZ), should attack the release of the memo.
The memo reveals how the DOJ and FBI senior officials used the Democratic propaganda by the DNC and Hillary Clinton, and mislead the court to be able to get a warrant and spy on a Trump adviser.
But that doesn’t apparently bother McCain, who has declared war on Trump and the Republican party.
McCain claimed that the release of the memo doesn’t serve the interests of Americans, “only Putin’s.”
McCain said in a statement:
In 2016, the Russian government engaged in an elaborate plot to interfere in an American election and undermine our democracy. Russia employed the same tactics it has used to influence elections around the world, from France and Germany to Ukraine, Montenegro, and beyond. Putin’s regime launched cyber attacks and spread disinformation with the goal of sowing chaos and weakening faith in our institutions. And while we have no evidence that these efforts affected the outcome of our election, I fear they succeeded in fueling political discord and dividing us from one another.
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.
McCain views criticism of the FBI and the DOJ as harmful and helping Putin?
What about criticism of the President and his legitimacy as the president by making up allegations of collusion, election compromise, then weaponizing the FBI to help spread the lie?
Who is really doing the work of Putin here?
Every single person pushing the Russian conspiracy and the individuals in the FBI who helped that along for political reasons.
But, of course, McCain has his own reasons for trying to ding the memo. Because of his own involvement in trying to take down candidate Trump with Democratic paid-for propaganda.
Last December it was revealed that it McCain who passed the Steele dossier to former FBI Director James Comey. McCain met with Andrew Wood in Halifax, Canada at the Halifax Security Forum in Canada in November 2016, and they discussed the dossier.
McCain had his associate David Kramer travel to London to meet with Steele and get briefed on the dossier. They arranged to get a hard copy of the dossier to McCain, and he gave it to Comey.
It was McCain who is in large part responsible for this debacle and for ‘doing Putin’s work’ for him. –Political News Alerts
