John McCain and James Comey are two “swampy” peas in a “swampy” pod!

 

According to various media outlets who have obtained advance copies of McCain’s new book, “The Restless Wave,” due out May 22, John McCain, the RINO (Republican In Name Only) Senator from Arizona, wrote, “I agreed to receive a copy of what is now referred to as ‘the dossier,’” 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.”

McCain writes that in November 2016, he spoke with Sir Andrew Wood, a former British diplomat, at the Halifax International Security Forum. Wood alerted him to Steele’s work after which, David Kramer, senior director for Human Rights and Human Freedoms at the McCain Institute, traveled to London to meet with Steele. Prior to this, as The Washington Post reported, Steele had already met with American officials in Rome to discuss his findings. The Arizona Republican had previously issued a statement in January of 2017 about passing over “sensitive information” to Comey.

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, and 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.

Ha! Okay. We definitely need some translation here from “swampy” English into normal English. Let’s proceed:

When McCain says, “I agreed to receive a copy of what is now referred to as ‘the dossier,’” who exactly did he make an agreement with?

When McCain says, “I reviewed its (the dossier’s) 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,” he obviously does not represent “any American who cares about our nation’s security.” In this case he represents all of the pathetic Trump headhunters out there in “the swamp,” who were grasping at any negative straw they could find, the truth be damned.    

When McCain writes, that in November 2016, he spoke with Sir Andrew Wood, a former British diplomat, at the Halifax International Security Forum. Wood alerted him to Steele’s work after which, David Kramer, senior director for Human Rights and Human Freedoms at the McCain Institute, traveled to London to meet with Steele, my first inclination is to believe that McCain was set-up and chosen due to his rift with Donald Trump and his probable inclination to believe whatever was in the fictional dossier. My second thought was how desperate was McCain to trash Donald Trump, that he would go out of his way to send a senior director from his institute to meet with the author of this ill-conceived and ill-promoted collection of lies, and apparently get his own copy.   

Prior to this, as The Washington Post reported, Steele had already met with American officials in Rome to discuss his findings. The Arizona Republican had previously issued a statement in January of 2017 about passing over “sensitive information” to Comey. By this time, we know that Hillary Clinton and the DNC were the ones who bought and paid for the dossier, and probably the ones feeding these fabricated stories to Steele to put in the dossier in the first place! Oh what a tangled web they weave!    

When 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, and 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. I did what duty demanded I do,” McCain means that he couldn’t wait to see if any of the stuff in the dossier would stick to Trump, and he was now washing his hands of it, knowing he had served himself and “the swamp” well.    

So we’ve had Hillary come out with her book, Donna Brazile came out with her book, James Comey came out with his book, and now John McCain with his. Who’s next?  Stay tuned for future translation!
