John McCain just made a shocking statement about the anti-Trump dossier
Senator John McCain was the one who handed the so-called “Steele Dossier” to James Comey.
Comey then used the document to justify spying on the Trump campaign, but the allegations outlined in the dossier have been proven false.
Now John McCain is opening up about his role in uncovering the Steele Dossier and released this shocking statement.
McCain has released excerpts of his forthcoming book.
It’s looking more and more like an anti-Trump screed than a memoir for a statesman.
Regarding his role in using the anti-Trump dossier, McCain writes:
“Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell.”
McCain later doubles down on his pure hatred for Trump, saying:
“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.”
In 2016, McCain reportedly sent a trusted advisor to London to meet with British spy Christopher Steele to obtain a copy of his dirty dossier.
His first instinct was not to fact check it.
Instead he handed it over to never-Trumper James Comey to try and torpedo the Trump campaign and undermine his presidency.
McCain has long ruffled the feathers of conservatives.
But now he’s using his final days in the Senate to block Trump from making America great again.
