REPORT: Russia Collusion Conspiracy Was Spread By John McCain Led Senate Panel With Help From Soros

A new report suggests that a Senate panel headed by the late Senator John McCain helped spread the Russia collusion conspiracy theory that cast a shadow over the 2016 election, and that left wing billionaire George Soros was also involved.

This is very disappointing news. Conservatives already had reasons not to like John McCain. This makes it worse.

No one on the right likes George Soros, but his involvement is newsworthy.

Just The News reported:

Effort to spread discredited Russia collusion theory welcomed by McCain Senate panel, memos show

The efforts to disseminate a now-discredited theory that the Trump campaign had secret computer communications with the Kremlin extended beyond the FBI, CIA, and State Department to the U.S. Senate.

Under the late Sen. John McCain, the Armed Services Committee engaged a former FBI official and his progressive-funded nonprofit to produce a report on the matter, according to court records obtained by Just the News.

The Senate committee, now under Democrats’ control, successfully waged a secret federal court battle this summer to quash a subpoena that would have forced one of its staffers, Thomas Kirk McConnell, to turn over documents and testify about his dealings with former FBI analyst Dan Jones and his nonprofit, The Democracy Integrity Project, the records show.

A spokesman for George Soros confirms the progressive megadonor was one of the financial backers of The Democracy Integrity Project. Tax records show the group raised more than $7 million in donations in 2017 and hired Fusion GPS — the same firm that produced the debunked Steele dossier for Hillary Clinton’s campaign — to pursue allegations of foreign interference in elections.

So disappointing.

The sad reality is that McCain cared more about the establishment.
