Mata Hari was a Dutch exotic dancer and courtesan,* convicted of being a spy for Germany during World War I and executed by a firing squad in France.
John McCain, now interred after three meticulously self-planned funerals, faced no firing squad, but was every bit as much of a double agent as Mata Hari, whose name is synonymous with clandestine dealings.
Breitbart reporter Aaron Klein, aided by researcher Joshua Klein, has done an outstanding job of revealing McCain’s long tentacles into the now discredited, salacious and fraudulent Steele “dossier,” and the lengths to which the former Arizona senator went to malign and attempt to topple Donald Trump — a man he despised for achieving the one thing the vengeful McCain lusted for but failed to attain: The Presidency of the United States.
Exhibiting his widely known classy style, McCain defended his contemptible actions with these words: “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell.”
You can’t be too busy to read, “IG Report Reveals Steele Funneled Claims Through John McCain After FBI Dropped Him,” These few sentences should serve as the enticement:
The IG [Inspector General] report also verifies that a McCain aide obtained the Steele reports directly from Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, meaning that when McCain transferred the anti-Trump charges to [now disgraced former FBI Director] James Comey he had to have known that the material originated with a firm that specializes in controversial opposition tactics.
Fusion GPS was paid for its anti-Trump work by Trump’s primary political opponents, namely Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) via the Perkins Coie law firm.
States the IG report:
Several weeks later, on December 9, 2016, Senator John McCain provided Comey with a collection of 16 Steele election reports, 5 of which Steele had not given the FBI. McCain had obtained these reports from a staff member at the McCain Institute. The McCain Institute staff member had met with Steele and later acquired the reports from Simpson.
The unnamed McCain staff member is known to be David J. Kramer, who also infamously provided BuzzFeed with the Steele dossier.
It’s worth remembering McCain called scandal-plagued leftist Hillary Clinton a “rock star” he could support for president.
