John McCain Confirms He Gave Trump Dossier To Comey: ‘Duty Demanded I Do’ It
Sen. John McCain is no maverick. In addition to this dossier nonsense, he needlessly attacked Sarah Palin saying he wished he would have selected Joe Lieberman as his running mate instead. Now he’s urging senators to vote against Gina Haspel.
Why would he want to hurt so many people on his way out of this world?
Duty to whom? Certainly not the duty to Truth, Justice, or the American Way.

In his new book, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) confirms that he gave a controversial dossier about President Trump to former FBI chief James Comey.
“I agreed to receive a copy of what is now referred to as ‘the dossier,’” McCain writes in the upcoming book, titled The Restless Wave, referencing information compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele. “I reviewed its contents. The allegations were disturbing, but I had no idea which if any were true. I could not independently verify any of it, and so I did what any American who cares about our nation’s security should have done.”
The Daily Beast obtained an advance copy of the book, due out May 22.
McCain recounts how he put the dossier in a safe in his office and called Comey’s office to request a meeting: “I went to see him at his earliest convenience, handed him the dossier, explained how it had come into my possession.”
“I said I didn’t know what to make of it, and I trusted the FBI would examine it carefully and investigate its claims. With that, I thanked the director and left. The entire meeting had probably not lasted longer than ten minutes. I did what duty demanded I do,” McCain concludes. More
“Sen. John McCain confirms in excerpts of his new forthcoming memoir that he gave a copy of the much-discredited Trump-Steele dossier to then-FBI Director James Comey – and that he has no regrets” 🤢🤢

Egotistical and stubborn to the end. McCain is so blinded by his own egotism he has missed the mark again and again when his influence could have help us. Less a man of conscience than a disappointed and bitter elitist who gradually got more and more out of touch. Sad.
