“McCain, the Guardian said, was worried that his actions might be interpreted as revenge for some of the controversial comments Trump made about him,” i.e. not respecting military people being captured. “However, McCain decided to hand over the documents to FBI Director James Comey…” It was redundant because Comey already had them. (chuckles) The document had been… The thing is funny about this: This document had been floating around Washington for months.
McCain only really heard that he could get his hands on it in November and wanted it so badly he sent somebody on a plane to the U.K. in November to get this damn thing and bring it back, and he gave it to Comey! That’s why McCain yesterday (imitating McCain), “Comey already had it. I wasn’t the first guy that gave it to him. I was wearing my citizen hat, my good citizen hat, sensitive material, who knows if it’s true, potential problem.”
So you don’t find this in the American media, but here’s McCain, a Republican joining forces with all these anti-Never Trump people in an effort to bring Trump down and trafficking in pure BS. I mention this because the sound bites we had on McCain yesterday made him sound like he’s a third-party player here. He heard about it and somehow it ended up in his possession, he thought it was dynamite so he took it over to Comey. There’s never any reporting that McCain was so eager to see this that he sent somebody on a transatlantic flight to get it, even though it was already circulating around Washington. And it’s blown up in their faces ’cause it isn’t verifiable, it isn’t true.
