It hasn’t been a good month for Senator John McCain.
Even after apparently being exposed as the White House media leaker, McCain continues to find trouble.
And pro-Trumpers already have a problem with McCain, as the new president can’t seem to make a move without McCain finding fault. And this is where the Senator’s past is starting to come back to bite him.
Once people really start digging around, you learn things you almost wish you didn’t know.
For instance, McCain requested presidential campaign funds from Russia, which is a big no-no. Sure, Hillary did that but then again, her ties to that particular country are WELL-documented, regardless of what liberals might say.
But remember this from last year?
It started via Bloomberg:
“A nonprofit with ties to Senator John McCain received a $1 million donation from the government of Saudi Arabia in 2014, according to documents filed with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.”
While McCain didn’t directly receive the money himself, the program in his name certainly did. He is also listed as the contact person for the organization, according to the McCain Institute’s tax returns.
Federal law strictly bans foreign contributions for electoral campaigns (hence, the problem with requesting funds from Russia), but doesn’t apply to nonprofits engaged in policy. That being said, the implication is clear:
The $1 million is much more of an endorsement than a gift. Seems like a nice little loophole here: You can’t directly fund the politician but you can donate to his organization(s).
And now, new information has come to light to verify the original claims and things are looking VERY bad, because the McCain Institute appears to be another Pay2Play scheme, much like Hillary’s. It’s erupting now on Reddit thanks to infamous info leakers on the forum board, 4chan.
This is the kind of news that can REALLY chafe, huh, John?
The American people might have some fresh questions for you, Senator, as will the media. Just wait until the phone starts ringing on Monday morning…
