    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) needs to explain his visit to White House grounds one day before briefing President Trump on surveillance affecting his transition team. "I think there needs to be a lot of explaining to do,” McCain told “CBS This Morning.” “I’ve been around for quite a while and I’ve never heard of such thing.”
  • John McCain Begs President Trump For a One-On-One Meeting (POTUS shuns backstabbing traitor)

    It certainly appears as if the political career and legacy of neocon traitor John McCain, is starting to crumble all around him. Having rode the wave of being a Vietnam POW almost all the way to the Oval Office but falling short, the twilight of McCain’s career has been marked nothing but scandals, and he has been reduced to little more than a talking head most recently associated with spouting baseless Russian connections against the President. Having failed miserably in each of his attempts to discredit Trump, including allegedly being the source who passed the fake Russian dossier to the...

    The world "cries out for American and European leadership" through the EU and Nato, US senator John McCain said on Friday (24 March). In a "new world order under enormous strain" and in "the titanic struggle with forces of radicalism … we can't stand by and lament, we've got to be involved," said McCain, a former Republican presidential candidate who is now chairman of the armed services committee in the US Senate. Speaking at the Brussels Forum, a conference organised by the German Marshall Fund, a transatlantic think tank, he said that the EU and the US needed to develop...

    - The Senator From the News Media is quickly becoming the Senator From the EU: Cranky old John McCain went off on President Donald Trump overseas again, this time at The Brussels Conference, attended by most of the leadership of the European Union and NATO. The Senator criticized the President on foreign soil for his insistence that EU nations actually begin paying their fair share of their own defense, for which the United States taxpayers have footed the lion’s share of the bill since the end of WWII. He also whined that he hasn’t been invited to meet with President...

    It was a bumper day for John McCain when on Friday Donald Trump's Republican nemesis gloated as Trump's "art of the deal" collapsed in the last minute, after the President and Ryan-led effort to repeal Obamacare suffered what appears to be a terminal setback. In the wake of Trump's misfortune, McCain renewed his calls on Friday for a return to a legacy neocon status quo, when speaking at the Brussels forum, said that the world "cries out for American and European leadership" through the EU and Nato, and said that the EU and the US needed to develop "more cooperation,...

    Doug Bandow March 21, 2017 TweetShareShare Printer-friendly version Sen. John McCain has the reputation of a foreign-policy maven. He pays attention to little other than foreign affairs. When he ran for president in the midst of the 2008 financial crisis, he admitted that he didn’t know much about economics, which helped doom his candidacy. Unfortunately, he shows no greater sophistication when it comes to his favorite topic. Nor does he brook disagreement, even if well founded. In his view, those who disagree with him are little better than traitors. Especially Americans who believe that Senator McCain’s most important duty is...

    This week, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif) disclosed that "there is substantial evidence that the Obama Administration gathered and disseminated covert surveillance material on the incoming Trump Administration. It seems like this might've been illegal." Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) was outraged by what he termed "an unprecedented violation of our national security.

John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Wednesday. "It's a bizarre situation, and what I think, the reason why I'm calling for this select committee or a special committee, is I think that this back-and-forth and what the American people have found out so far that no longer does the Congress have credibility to handle this alone," McCain told MSNBC's Greta Van Susteren.

Devin Nunes’ disclosure that the communications of President Trump and his transition team may have been intercepted by American intelligence or law enforcement agents, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., on Thursday described Nunes’ actions as “very disturbing.” Nunes, the California Republican who heads the House intelligence committee, called a press conference Wednesday to announce that he had informed the White House that Trump transition communications may have been subject to “incidental collection” in the course of surveillance of other targets, possibly foreign.

    Middle Eastern analysts say a vicious regime is being brought to heel. An analysis by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute) finds that the Trump administration’s tough stance toward Iran is already having an effect. Analyses of the very complex Middle Eastern chessboard abound, and assessments by knowledgeable people not infrequently contradict each other. What makes MEMRI’s investigations especially interesting, though, is that they’re based on very close observation of Middle Eastern countries themselves, including both their media and their actions (or inactions) on the ground. The three authors of the analysis in question include Yigal Carmon, president of...

    This week Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) questioned Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ken) loyalties after Paul voted not to extend NATO military support to Montenegro. In turn, Paul questioned McCain’s judgment. As McCain reasoned, Paul’s refusal to extend the United States’ guarantee to defend Montenegro from potential Russian aggression was “doing Putin’s bidding.” As Paul sees it, though, “the United States is already overextended in terms of its military deployments around the world and it would be foolish to add to that.” “Inasmuch as Sen. McCain has been an avid advocate of arming every Islamic ‘freedom fighter’ in the Middle East, including...

Rear Adm. Brian Losey was investigated five times by the Defense Department's inspector general after subordinates complained that he had wrongly fired, demoted or punished them during a vengeful but fruitless hunt for the person who had anonymously reported him for a minor travel-policy infraction, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post.

Trump walked that claim back on Wednesday, telling Fox News that “‘Wiretap’ covers a lot of different...

"I have never heard of a president of the United States accusing his predecessor or any other president of the United States of violating the law," McCain said.

    The FBI’s agreement to pay the author of the unsubstantiated dossier on Donald Trump while he was working for an opposition research firm tied to Hillary Clinton raises questions about the bureau’s “independence from politics,” the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is claiming. In a letter sent to FBI director James Comey on Monday, Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley asked for more detail about revelations made in a Washington Post article last week about an agreement the FBI made with Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier and a former MI6 agent. The Post reported that the FBI agreed in...

    Do you think this FISA warrant was issued because of the fake dossier that McCain gave to the FBI? That gave them the ammo to obtain the warrant. If so, this has McCain's fingerprints all over it.

    According to the woman, she and a co-worker were planning in October to attend a Sarah Palin rally in Colorado Springs but wanted to travel to the Springs the night before. She told police that she mentioned the planned trip to Bartleson. He offered to keep her 5-year-old son overnight in Pueblo and then drive up to Colorado Springs the next day and meet them there. She accepted Bartleson’s offer. The woman said that her son told her that while at Bartleson’s home, Bartleson insisted on giving him a bath, during which he was sexually molested. Later, said the child,...

    An open question for FReepers. 1) How did Franken get the "dossier" the proven fake one from the MI5 guy hired by democratic operatives to create it? 2.) What part did McCain play in this "dossier" being shared with the White House- not the FBI as he said, but the White House? 3.) Has anyone competently asked McCain about his role in all this, and his ability to do his job, having obviously been "punked" and faked out by dirty tricks leftists?

    A year or two ago, I got the idea of writing a post every weekend about only good news in politics across the country. I scrapped it after a month — not enough material. (I am not kidding.) Since then, the political climate has only worsened and coarsened; the 2016 campaign was a low point and, unlike past presidencies, the first six weeks of Donald Trump's administration haven't exactly been a honeymoon. More people are interested in politics than ever before, but that interest is almost entirely directed at hating the other side, not rooting for their team. Enter John...

    "If it's about some mistake I made I hate it, but if it's about someone else I love it," he cracked while talking to the Brookings Institution Board of Directors. . . . McCain, who had provided a copy of the memos to the FBI for investigation, said it was "totally wrong" that the document was leaked. "The fact that this un-validated document, to say the least, was leaked — it's somebody's responsibility," he told Fox News."The very fact that it was leaked, one, is a commentary on this town."

    Senator Lindsey Graham appeared with fellow establishment RINO squish John McCain in a strange CNN Town Hall on Wednesday, a perplexing duo since the venue is usually sold as a “debate” between two opposing forces (big government Republicans Graham and McCain agree on virtually everything) as was the recent CNN debate between Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders, a fiery exchange between two complete opposites — a constitutional conservative whose father escaped communist Cuba, and a leftist that honeymooned in the communist USSR. But on Wednesday, there was nothing but agreement on stage as CNN’s Dana Bash trotted out audience member...
