Arizona Sen. John McCain cemented his RINO status when he admitted Tuesday that he handed the dossier that smeared Donald Trump to the FBI.
“Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,” he wrote in a statement on his website.
“Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI.
He couldn’t resist: Obama told one particularly blatant big, fat lie in his Farewell Address
“That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.”

The accusations published by Buzzfeed are admittedly unverified and potentially unverifiable
President-elect Trump and his staff have vehemently denied the veracity of the reports.
Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein told CNN that McCain was more intimately involved in the documents than he admitted.
“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,” he said.
“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 a 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, very little was said, McCain turned it over to him and is now awaiting what the FBI’s response is to that information.”
Social media blasted the Arizona senator.
