Arizona Senator John McCain has spent the past year betraying the Republican Party by constantly attacking President Donald Trump. McCain once gain tried to bash the president on Friday, but it didn’t end well for him.
Mediaite reported that McCain just released a statement that effectively slams Trump for the controversial Devin Nunes memo on alleged FISA investigative abuses. The statement came out at virtually the same time as the release of the memo, which showed that the FBI and Department of Justice engaged in serious misconduct against Trump. Despite the horrifying revelations in the memo, McCain chose to take the liberal side against Trump.
“The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s,” McCain said. “The American people deserve to know all of the facts surrounding Russia’s ongoing efforts to subvert our democracy, which is why Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation must proceed unimpeded. Our nation’s elected officials, including the president, must stop looking at this investigation through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows. If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him.”

You delusional dolt. The released memo showed clear violations of law. Anyone who said it’s release could jeopardize National Security is part of the Conspiracy.

Poor John McCain. He needs to leave the Senate, go home to Arizona, and enjoy his remaining years with his family. His integrity is gone.
