Posted on 06/20/2017 3:20:57 AM PDT by yoe
Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain in 2012 turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign to a new foundation bearing his name, the McCain Institute for International Leadership.
The institute is intended to serve as a legacy for McCain and is dedicated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom. It is a tax-exempt non-profit foundation with assets valued at $8.1 million and associated with Arizona State University.
[snip]This is a very real conflict of interest, Craig Holman, a government affairs lobbyist at Public Citizen, told TheDCNF. This is the similar type of pattern we received with the Clinton Foundation in which foreign governments and foreign interests were throwing a lot of money in the hopes of trying to buy influence.
[snip]McCain and Soros reportedly became friends after the senator was exposed as a member of the Keating Five during the savings and loan (S&L) industry scandal during former President George H.W. Bushs administration. As the S&L bank chairman, Charles Keating paid $1.3 million to bribe five members of Congress to interfere with government regulators on behalf of the savings bank.
The experience so scarred McCain that he became a vigorous advocate of campaign finance reform and in the process reportedly became friends with Soros.

McCain is the first and often only REPUB the MSM showcases on TV whenever there are conservative initiatives or people to be hammered. This explains it all. Add the defense contractors and McCain is all about constant war, weapons, REPUB President attacks, and financial kickbacks.
Did we veteran Freepers not know of this for at least 4 years? I distinctly have this etched in my cranial memory banks and I’m not that old yet. At one time I at least had a “smidgen” of respect for this person I regard even less than Benedict Arnold because his extended stay at the HH, but when I learned of his foundation being funded by Soros, that too was gone. Now we finally are starting to get some real details of how he was bought off in the Keating 5 scandal, as many of us suspected.
Looks like “Ace” McCain has pi$$ed in the wrong bowl of Corn Flakes.
Yeah it "scarred" him. What a crock. Getting caught simply made him look for more reliable funding from people who the DC cabal consider above the law, and a better scam to control whatever power/money he can amass.
He was a sh*tbird then, and he is a sh*tbird - with a foundation - now.
John McCain is the one who is chief invester in SIS corp. They train the Syrian rebels (ISIS).
Lock him up with her!
Dina powell is married to a head honcho at teneo. Trump just hired the lawyer who got mccain off in the keating scandal.
It's illegal for unspent campaign funds to go directly to the candidate, but it's legal to give the money to a "charity". It's legal for the "charity" to spend that money on expenses for the people who run the "charity", and in this case, that includes Songbird himself, his family, and his cronies.
It's a scam, and you can safely bet that is exactly what H*****y has done with a hefty chunk of the massive amount of money that wasn't otherwise wasted on her worthless failed campaign.
McNuts: You sleep with dogs, you get fleas! You’re as dirty as they come and worthless to boot! FU McNuts!
But but he’s a Maverick dontchyaknow.
McCain destroyed Michelle Bachman, who tried to warn us about Huma Abedin’s close connection to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., took to the Senate floor to rip apart his fellow Republicans’ accusations and came to the defense of Abedin, whom he calls a “fine and decent American,” after observing her work as both a long-time aide to Clinton while she was a Senator and as the Secretary of State.
McCain described accusations against Huma Abedin the as “ugly” and “sinister,”
Awesome, truthful retort!
Follow his money.
That explains a lot.
Like McCain telling the American people that we have nothing to fear from Senator Obama.
Also explains how he is able to stay in office.
MC CAIN IN SOROS’ POCKET !
Spread it loud and wide...neuter the SOB with the added benefit of it likely being true, the way he betrays. Now we know why; for his personal benefit.
