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.
It’s bad enough that President-Elect Donald Trump has had to deal with Democrats and their stenographers inside the mainstream news media ganging up together to constantly berate, smear and lie about him and his agenda before he even takes office, but when you find out that members of the Republicans Party were involved in schemes to hurt him as well, it denies belief in a Benevolent Being.
This needs to be stopped, at least among the members of the President-Elects own party, before it gets so out of control that it can’t be stopped. Those involved within the ranks of the GOP should be singled out and excoriated in public.

IT WAS ME: SWORN TRUMP ENEMY JOHN MCCAIN ADMITS HE HANDED SMEAR DOSSIER TO FBI – AS DETAILS SURFACE OF DOCUMENT’S BIZARRE JOURNEY FROM BRITISH FORMER SPY AND DIPLOMAT
- Arizona Senator who disowned Trump before election admits he handed document outlining claims of Kremlin blackmail to FBI
- Brief statement claims that he received it and gave it directly to FBI Director James Comey because he was ‘unable to make judgment about accuracy’
- But Washington reporter Carl Bernstein says former British ambassador to Moscow handed it to McCain
- Ambassador has not been named – and author of report also gave to FBI agent he knew at its station in Rome months ago
- Report was apparently paid for first BY Republican enemies of Trump then by Democrats
Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect.
The Arizona senator issued a public statement amid mounting questions about his exact role in the affair – and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published.
‘Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,’ he said.
‘Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI.
‘That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.’
But the 2008 Republican loser, who disowned his party’s candidate weeks before the election, may have been far more intimately involved than that.
John McCain admits he handed the report w over to FBI Director James Comey late last year. The agency was first handed parts of it in August
Donald Trump, pictured, has denied allegations contained in an explosive dossier compiled by a former British MI6 agent claiming on Twitter he is being subjected to a ‘political witch hunt’
The dossier claims Russian authorities filmed Trump in a Moscow hotel room with two prostitutes who ‘defiled a bed’ which had previously been used by President Barack Obama
Trump branded the leaked dossier as ‘fake news’ and ‘a total political witch hunt’
The chain of how the document reached the FBI is not officially known.
However, Carl Bernstein, the Watergate reporter who contributed to the first story about its existence, published by CNN on Tuesday afternoon, suggested that McCain was handed it by a former British ambassador to Moscow.
Bernstein told CNN: ‘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.
‘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 an FBI colleague that he had known of 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 the two men, very little was said, McCain turned it over to him and is now awaiting what the FBI’s response is to that information.’
The identity of the former British ambassador has not been disclosed.
Only one former British ambassador to Moscow remains in UK government service, Sir Tim Barrow, who went on to be Foreign Office political director and is now Britain’s ambassador to the European Union.
McCain’s long-standing opposition to Trump is well known although he only formally ended support for the Republican candidate in October when the notorious ‘p****’ tape emerged.
Trump claimed Russia said the report was a ‘complete and total fabrication’
Buzzfeed followed up a report by CNN which disclosed the existence of the explosive dossier, but only gave a brief outline of the contents.
The 35-page document, which had been collated by a former British Secret Intelligence Service agent had initially been handed over to the FBI in August.
Buzzfeed’s Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith wrote an email to his staff shortly after publishing the document.
