McCain Responds To Memo Release: "Attacks On FBI Serve Only Putin's Interests"

Senator John McCain may be on his death-bed, but that does not stop him defending the deep state and his neocon cronies in response to President Trump's declassification of 'the memo'.

In a tweeted comment, McCain responded in his ubiquitous manner:

"The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s..."

 

 

With a full statement as follows:

STATEMENT BY SASC CHAIRMAN JOHN McCAIN ON PARTISAN ATTACKS ON THE FBI & DOJ

Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on partisan attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice:

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 cyberattacks 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.

One wonders if he even read the memo?

No. He needs to just die. If that is the only way this traitor will shut his trap, so be it.

Why is songbird still free? Why?

 

Edit....I know people who have had advanced cancer and went to the best hospitals. They did not make it despite a good try.

Why is he still ambulatory even? Really. Baby blood?

Fuck off, John.  Nobody's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf.  I'm not afraid of Russia or her "interests".  Short of unilaterally decided to nuke us one night (which they won't do) they are about as scary to me as the prospect of Somalia overthrowing the US.

YOU on the other hand, I am very afraid of.  You'd do or say ANYTHING to get us into another war.

Dear John McCain,

Die.

Sincerely,
America

ps: if you're still reading this, then you're still alive. Why? From the US Navy, to The State of Arizona, to the US Senate, to Iraq, to the Ukraine, you have brought infamy and ruin upon everything taken into your wretched claws throughout your misbegotten life. So we say again:

Die.

Should your fetid carcass be interred in a marked grave, future generations will bear any burden, endure any hardship, to make the pilgrimage to shit upon your mortal remains, forever, without end, amen.

Seriously!? This is the same guy all you dumbells wanted running the country with Sarah Palin.  Now he's a traitor because he's acting like a sane person that the rule of law in America should be upheld?  I mean do you guys even hear the arguments you're making? 

 

You really place all your faith and trust in a guy that might be the biggest bs artist of the last 50 years instead of the checks and balances of America's law enforcement and intelligence agencies?  ....and why?!?! ...because a serial liar from Manhattan's socialite class and a tv and WWF personality said so?  Seriously!?!?  Trump is a bad joke that got elected because America has become the least educated 1st world nation and is full of people dumb enough to believe Fox News' fabricated....everything.

I'm sure you will claim differently, but it is obvious you have only been around here for 10 months.  For the last 6 years over 90% of the comments on ZH have been negative towards McCain.  And I should remind you, there were many people on here that were Ron Paul supporters in 2008 as well as in 2012.  

That election was nine years ago and both choices were terrible. The other option in the 2008 election was Obama, a candidate groom and trained in the hotbed of corruption, Chicago.  He brought the Chicago Way to the federal level.

"instead of the checks and balances of America's law enforcement and intelligence agencies? "

That is exactly where the memo and it's contents are coming from.  The FISA court issued a 99 page opinion BEFORE THE 2017 ELECTIONS.  Trump WAS NOT involved with that.  

A worker at the NSA came across information that there was large amount of intelligence gathering in the government.  Mike Rodgers of the NSA had an audit done to inspect what was occurring.  During this audit, they found information that there were possible illegal activities.  He took that information to the FISA court for them to evaluate the findings.  

The FISA court concluded that there was

Illegal activity by the FBI

Illegal activity by contractors

There was improper disclosure of intelligence about Americans to unauthorized individuals

All crimes.

McCain should release his medical records to determine if he's fit and competent to be a Senator considering the amount of chemotherapy he's going through.

But again, there was a congressman shot playing baseball, but he didn't try to run the show from the hospital.

Considering McCain and Pelosi's strange statements, proving age and disease have clouded their judgement, we need a new rule.

We need term limits and this is a good  example of why we need term limits on congress. It is unconstitutional for congress to serve life time terms. Why? because the original constitution was changed by Northern progressives from state legislatures choosing the states senator to popular elections.

This was done in 1913 when the NYC communist used the martial law era of the post civil war, to completely redo the government, they conducted a social civil war to remove the states from the loop. Now we have senators who act with the same political power of a president. (the Fed was also created at this time with other social issues like women voting rights, this was the wedge issue used to restructure the government to destroy the last of states rights.)

So the constitution has been rewritten, they will not allow us to return to the original constitution because the entire federal government agency system of governing, a result of the civil war martial law era, with the same Northern state controls, is unconstitutional, and to do it, to completely remove the state from the loop and to create a bank controlled by NYC over the states, this is all an outcome of the civil war and the Northern states rewrote the constitution.

The federal government agencies duplicate state governments departments, BECAUSE THE RIGHT TO GOVERN ON THE STATE LEVEL IS CONTROLLED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BY THE NORTHERN STATES MARTIAL LAW SYSTEM OF CONTROL.(Funny note, the Trump tax reform tried to stop the northern states from the federal income and property tax credit, that was a shot across the bow of the old system of northern state control.)

The agency system of control is martial law lite. What McCain is all about, is keeping this power and control grid's boot on our neck. And the Northern State agency system of control, has moved forth, to put the entire world under the Northern states agency martial law control grid. McCain was a master of keeping this system growing and fully engaged.

Could it be said, McCain is mentally ill, projecting a strange interpretation of the American reality?
