The McCain Associate Who Delivered the "Steele" Dossier to the FBI Hoped to Blackmail Trump out of the Election

"Blackmail" is my word -- but what would you call it?

When you tell someone you have information over them and that therefore they must do something they otherwise wouldn't do -- well, that's blackmail, isn't it?

Or a "friendly advisory"? Doesn't seem so friendly though.

What a crew are these.

7 McCain's ego overloaded his ass. Reminds me of the scene in Braveheart where Longshanks finds out his heir will be not of his line. Trump told it as it was and Mc Cain will go to his grave knowing he was bitchslapped by Trump.

They KNEW she was criminal ... yet tried to destroy Trump and push Queen Hillary into power.

26 I think McCain was trying to tank Trump because McCain is still bitter about 2000, and he figures if he cant be the R president, nobody can (except maybe miss lindsey).

So he will do everything he can to not allow an R to be elected president.

It really doesn't matter. We *know* that Steele told the FBI he hadn't revealed any of it to the press, but we also know that Michael Issikoff says he was the source for an earlier Yahoo News article.

It also doesn't matter because as Andy McCarthy has been more than pointing out, almost all of it is 2nd-hand to 3rd-hand *hearsay*. And the FBI you wanted to use Steele's dossier should have established that Steele's *buddy* was reliable. It doesn't matter how reliable Steele is when he's reporting hearsay.

51 McCain - "I talked to a guy over in England who told me that some Russians told him that the FSB knows all about what you did in Moscow and they will blackmail you unless you do as they tell you to do."

Trump - slapping McCain on top of the head like Benny Hill used to do to Jackie Wright. "Thanks all about that, senator. You just run along now and let the non-senile people in the room get on with keeping Hillary out of the White House."

McCain - "But...but...but... the Russians!" Sound of the door closing behind him.

Trump - "Is that guy brain damaged or something?"

53 It's no big mystery. For all his bombs away craziness McCain is absolutely a globalist CFR member in good standing. So is Kramer. And that's why the McCain foundation is a bastion of globalists and financed by amongst others, George Soros.

McCain was rich, powerful and influential in the globalist world. Why would he give that up for Trump when he could continue to flourish under Hillary, his fellow traveller?

106 Our main problem?

We STILL don't have a gpod name for this scandal.

"Worse-Than-Watergate" is too clumsy.

"Russiagate" doesn't work because the Left already wants to use that as the name for the fake scandal they tried to drum up against Trump.

"Deep State Gate" is, well, lame.

"The Entire Liberal Establishment Is Fundamentally Corrupt to an Extreme Degree" is quite accurate, but too wordy.

But without a catchy scandal name, it all becomes a murky mess.

Furthermore, every day a new rock is turned over and a new grotesque villain is exposed, so the focus of the scandal is constantly shifting.

What shall we do?

My husband heard the same from a close friend who knows a former POW well. I don't want to comment since I haven't heard it from the "horse's mouth" so to speak. My own third cousin was one of the very last POWs released from the Hanoi Hilton. He was shot down as well. He's never spoken of his time there.

202 To be straight for a sec, the problem with Steel and Aluminum is that the world is overflowing with it - dozens of countries wanted to have those as core industries (especially China and India) so their governments subsidized their construction and production in many ways.

So steel and aluminum prices are in most of the world now below the price of production, which means it's not worthwhile running the plants without government support.

2 options for America to deal with this - both actually have merit, but you have to understand the trade-offs being made to understand the choices. 1st) the Free Trade position - do nothing and simply enjoy the fact that the rest of the world wants to sell you steel and aluminum. below cost. The trade-off is that your homegrown steel a and aluminum industry will disapear along with any jobs associated with it. 2nd) act to keep at least a share of the industry inside your borders by either subsidizing it directly, or using tariffs. You keep the jobs and you keep the capacity, but everyone has to pay more for steel than they would have.

There is another problem with Option 1, "just get it cheap" - this is not a permanent situation, and when worldwide production does finally get back into balance, as it will someday, your country is gonna be screwed if you chose this one.

I've been watching it entirely for comedic value now that the female president who was supposed to be Hillary bringing us peace in our time has been demolished by Trump winning, seeing them trying to turn her into Trump but not knowing how to get away with that successfully is hilarious.

Then looking for all the tropes about the Alex Jones clone about evil, hypocritical rightists is funny too! And they had the FBI shoot a dog. That has to give them some credit for real-life accuracy right there.

I voted for McGovern. eeek!

that was the only and last time I voted for a Democrat.

although some of my GOP votes were mostly to prevent the Donks from slipping a douchebag past the electorate, I did okay in general.

I hated voting for McCain and Romney but what choice was there?

And now in my twilight years comes a man with a plan that actually tries to keep his campaign promises and has!!!!

I don't like to wish ill of the dead or wish anyone dead. Bad Karma and all that.

But McCain I think I can be forgiven for. A blot on the Senate for way too long.

"Why am I here" was a setup, like the edited-in 9 seconds after the network floozy asked the NRA members if they didn't feel guilty for feelz. The Admiral was in full possession of his faculties, was loaded for bear, and could taken any of those lightweights around backward in debate, because he'd spent half his career arguing truths with the pros, at the post-oc level.

The TV guys knew a good line when they heard it. So they isolated that rhetorical question, framed it, cut out the rest of what he was saying, and had their fun. And it worked! You shit-asses swallowed it. And now make your little jokesy-joke, because nothing really is important is it?
