Next President of the United Fates of America
http://theduran.com/slimy-trump-dossier-...hn-mccain/

McCain was "so concerned" about the information contained within the 35-page dossier, that he passed the information onto the FBI.

John McCain hates Donald Trump.

Donald Trump did what John McCain could not…win the US Presidency.

Donald Trump will undo the evil John McCain has been doing for his entire career.

Trump vows to put an end to destructive US regime change operations, stamp out government corruption, and drain the swamp.
A swamp creature like John McCain is obviously upset.
It should come then as no surprise that the person now claiming responsibility for bringing the “fake news” Buzzfeed article to life is US Senator John McCain.
What was thought to be a 4Chan trolling operation is now looking more like a US Congress smear campaign, aimed at killing two birds with one “fake news” stone. Humiliate Trump, villanize Russia.
Reports are now flooding the internet confirming that  John McCain admitted that he passed on the fraudulent dossier about a Russian blackmail plot against Donald Trump to the FBI, calling it ‘what any citizen should do’.
You can be certain that if McCain passed it on to the FBI, than he most certainly could have “accidentally” passed it on to various press outlets.
The 80-year-old Republican war-hawk neocon senator said that he was simply acting as a ‘concerned citizen’, when the document magically came across his desk.
McCain claims that he received the document and gave it directly to FBI Director James Comey, because he was ‘unable to make judgment about accuracy’.
Washington reporter Carl Bernstein provides a different narrative to McCain’s ‘concerned citizen’ story.
Bernstein claims that a former British ambassador to Moscow handed the document to McCain, which coincidently was a paid for hit-piece by Republican enemies of Trump, turned into a hit-piece by Democrats (aka the Hillary Clinton campaign).
The British Ambassador who passed on the report to McCain has not been named.
McCain told CNN (the “fake news” network that, along with Buzzfeed, broke the story)…
Quote:“I did what any citizen should do. I received sensitive information and handed it to the FBI.”
“That’s why I gave it to the FBI. I don’t know if it is credible or not but the information I thought deserved to be delivered to the FBI, the appropriate agency of government.”
“It doesn’t trouble me because I don’t know if it is accurate or not. I have no way of corroborating that.”
“The individual gave me the information. I looked at it. After receiving that information I took it to the FBI.”
John McCain issued a public statement with a brief timeline of events explaining how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims, came to be published by Buzzfeed and then broadcast by CNN…
Quote:“Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public.”
“Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI.”
“That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.”
The Daily Mail reports that “the 2008 Republican loser, who disowned his party’s candidate weeks before the election, may have been far more intimately involved than that.” 
Quote:The chain of how the document reached the FBI is not officially known.
However Carl Bernstein, the Watergate reporter who contributed to the first story about its existence, published by CNN on Tuesday afternoon, suggested that McCain was handed it by a former British ambassador to Moscow.
Bernstein told CNN: ‘It came from a former British MI6 agent who was hired from a political opposition research firm in Washington who was doing work about Donald Trump for both republican and democratic candidates opposed to Trump.
‘They were looking at Trumps business ties, they saw some questionable things about Russians, about his businesses in Russia, they in turn hired this MI6 former investigator, he then came up with additional information from his Russian sources, he was very concerned by the implications of it, he then took it to an FBI colleague that he had known in his undercover work for years, he took it to this FBI man in Rome who turned it over to the bureau in Washington in August.
‘And then, a former British ambassador to Russia independently was made aware of these findings and he took the information to John McCain – Senator John McCain of Arizona – in the period just after the election, and showed it to McCain – additional findings.
‘McCain was sufficiently disturbed by what he read to take it to FBI director James Comey himself personally, they had a five minute meeting the two men, very little was said, McCain turned it over to him and is now awaiting what the FBI’s response is to that information.’
The identity of the former British ambassador has not been disclosed.
Only one former British ambassador to Moscow remains in UK government service, Sir Tim Barrow, who went on to be Foreign Office political director and is now Britain’s ambassador to the European Union.
The Daily Mail UK has a timeline of John McCain’s ongoing feud with President-elect Trump…
Quote:JULY 18,  2015
Donald Trump questions John McCain’s war record claiming: ‘He’s not a war hero.
‘He’s a war hero because he was captured? I like people who weren’t captured.’
AUGUST 1, 2016
McCain continues to endorse Trump’s campaign, even though Trump attacked the Gold Star family of Captain Humayan Khan who was killed by a suicide bomber in Iraq in 2004
OCTOBER 8, 2016
McCain withdrew his endorsement of Trump after audio of the reality TV star was leaked including the phrase ‘grab her by the p****’
DECEMBER 9, 2016
McCain meets FBI Director James Comey and hands over the Kremlin dossier assembled by a former British spy
No big surprise as to how all of this is playing out.
Wherever filth and deception resides John McCain is not far behind…

In January, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower delivered his farewell address after serving two terms as U.S. president; the five-star general chose to warn Americans of this specific threat to democracy: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” That warning was issued prior to the decadelong escalation of the Vietnam War, three more decades of Cold War mania, and the post-9/11 era, all of which radically expanded that unelected faction’s power even further.
This is the faction that is now engaged in open warfare against the duly elected and already widely disliked president-elect, Donald Trump. They are using classic Cold War dirty tactics and the defining ingredients of what has until recently been denounced as “Fake News.”
Their most valuable instrument is the U.S. media, much of which reflexively reveres, serves, believes, and sides with hidden intelligence officials. And Democrats, still reeling from their unexpected and traumatic election loss as well as a systemic collapse of their party, seemingly divorced further and further from reason with each passing day, are willing — eager — to embrace any claim, cheer any tactic, align with any villain, regardless of how unsupported, tawdry and damaging those behaviors might be.
The serious dangers posed by a Trump presidency are numerous and manifest. There are a wide array of legitimate and effective tactics for combatting those threats: from bipartisan congressional coalitions and constitutional legal challenges to citizen uprisings and sustained and aggressive civil disobedience. All of those strategies have periodically proven themselves effective in times of political crisis or authoritarian overreach.
But cheering for the CIA and its shadowy allies to unilaterally subvert the U.S. election and impose its own policy dictates on the elected president is both warped and self-destructive. Empowering the very entities that have produced the most shameful atrocities and systemic deceit over the last six decades is desperation of the worst kind. Demanding that evidence-free, anonymous assertions be instantly venerated as Truth — despite emanating from the very precincts designed to propagandize and lie — is an assault on journalism, democracy, and basic human rationality. And casually branding domestic adversaries who refuse to go along as traitors and disloyal foreign operatives is morally bankrupt and certain to backfire on those doing it.
Beyond all that, there is no bigger favor that Trump opponents can do for him than attacking him with such lowly, shabby, obvious shams, recruiting large media outlets to lead the way. When it comes time to expose actual Trump corruption and criminality, who is going to believe the people and institutions who have demonstrated they are willing to endorse any assertions no matter how factually baseless, who deploy any journalistic tactic no matter how unreliable and removed from basic means of ensuring accuracy?
All of these toxic ingredients were on full display yesterday as the Deep State unleashed its tawdriest and most aggressive assault yet on Trump: vesting credibility in and then causing the public disclosure of a completely unvetted and unverified document, compiled by a paid, anonymous operative while he was working for both GOP and Democratic opponents of Trump, accusing Trump of a wide range of crimes, corrupt acts and salacious private conduct. The reaction to all of this illustrates that while the Trump presidency poses grave dangers, so, too, do those who are increasingly unhinged in their flailing, slapdash, and destructive attempts to undermine it.
 
For months, the CIA, with unprecedented clarity, overtly threw its weight behind Hillary Clinton’s candidacy and
Quote:While some Democrats sounded notes of caution — party loyalist Josh Marshall commendably urged: “I would say in reviewing raw, extremely raw ‘intel’, people shld retain their skepticism even if they rightly think Trump is the worst” — the overwhelming reaction was the same as all the other instances where the CIA and its allies released unverified claims about Trump and Russia: instant embrace of the evidence-free assertions as Truth, combined with proclamations that it demonstrated Trump’s status as a traitor (with anyone expressing skepticism designated a Kremlin agent or stooge).
 
There is a real danger here that this maneuver can harshly backfire, to the great benefit of Trump and to the great detriment of those who want to oppose him. If any of the significant claims in this “dossier” turn out to be provably false — such as Cohen’s trip to Prague — many people will conclude, with Trump’s encouragement, that large media outlets (CNN and BuzzFeed) and anti-Trump factions inside the government (CIA) are deploying “Fake News” to destroy him. In the eyes of many people, that will forever discredit — render impotent — future journalistic exposés that are based on actual, corroborated wrongdoing.
Beyond that, the threat posed by submitting ourselves to the CIA and empowering it to reign supreme outside of the democratic process is — as Eisenhower warned — an even more severe danger. The threat of being ruled by unaccountable and unelected entities is self-evident and grave. That’s especially true when the entity behind which so many are rallying is one with a long and deliberate history of lying, propaganda, war crimes, torture, and the worst atrocities imaginable.
All of the claims about Russia’s interference in U.S. elections and ties to Trump should be fully investigated by a credible body, and the evidence publicly disclosed to the fullest extent possible. As my colleague Sam Biddle argued last week after disclosure of the farcical intelligence community report on Russia hacking — one which even Putin’s foes mocked as a bad joke — the utter lack of evidence for these allegations means “we need an independent, resolute inquiry.” But until then, assertions that are unaccompanied by evidence and disseminated anonymously should be treated with the utmost skepticism — not lavished with convenience-driven gullibility.
Most important of all, the legitimate and effective tactics for opposing Trump are being utterly drowned by these irrational, desperate, ad hoc crusades that have no cogent strategy and make his opponents appear increasingly devoid of reason and gravity. Right now, Trump’s opponents are behaving as media critic Adam Johnson described: as ideological jelly fish, floating around aimlessly and lost, desperately latching on to whatever barge randomly passes by.
There are solutions to Trump. They involve reasoned strategizing and patient focus on issues people actually care about. Whatever those solutions are, venerating the intelligence community, begging for its intervention, and equating their dark and dirty assertions as Truth are most certainly not among them. Doing that cannot possibly achieve any good, and is already doing much harm.
