Unbelievable. John McCain is defending the FBI and condemns GOP leaders and Trump for releasing the Republican memo outlining corruption from FISA Courts. It’s so past time for this guy to turn in his place card in the senate.
This entire scandal is going to make very clear just who is part of the deep state swamp, and who isn’t.
The Hill has the story:
McCain’s comments come as a controversial Republican memo accusing DOJ and the FBI of “shocking” abuses of power is expected to be released shortly.
“Elected officials, including the president, must stop looking at this [Russia] investigation through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows,” McCain said in a statement.
He added that “the latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests — no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s.”
A White House spokesperson said on Friday that the president has approved the release of the memo, compiled by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.). The memo is said to contain allegations of the FBI improperly surveilling Trump campaign communications.
Get the popcorn ready. This is going to be a long and harrowing battle.
