My first question about anything reported in the "news", is always "cui bono (who benefits)?"
Certainly, McCain benefits by undermining Trump. But so do a gazillion other people.
However, the question that keeps popping up in my little pea brain is, "Why McCain?" Why was McCain, out of all the people who could have been given the so-called explosive dossier on Trump, singled out to be the recipient? Except, was he? It seems this dossier has been floating around for quite some time. At least that's what we're now being asked to believe.
Not only was McCain one of the recipients, but he sent someone to pick it up in London. It's been reported that this whole brouhaha started during the primaries and !Jeb Bush was behind it all. If !Jeb won the presidency, McCain would have been paid off with a cushy appointment in Bush's administration. That sounds reasonable.
Christopher Steele, 52, is said to have been the former MI6 agent who compiled the dossier on Trump to discredit the incoming US President.
As I keep saying, "All news is fake news until proven otherwise", which makes me wonder why CNN jumped on the Buzzfeed story. Buzzfeed I get. It's just a bunch of college dropouts sitting around on their laptops, probably for free, pounding out nonsense that only nonsensical people read. CNN, on the other hand, strives to be relevant and respected. Were they so biased and anxious for some sort of "scoop" that they reported on Buzzfeed's garbage? I guess so.Who commissioned a former British spy to draw up the ‘dirty dossier’ on Donald Trump is yet to be identified – but fingers have been pointed to Jeb Bush as the initial requestor via a Washington research firm working for a so-called superPAC – a political action committee – had commissioned the report during the Republican primaries. Followed by Trump’s enemies in both the Republican and Democrat parties once Jeb stepped out of the race. source
As for McCain - his image is forever tainted. Either people are calling him a traitor or demented. Neither description could be considered good.
So what is the truth? I have no idea, except to know with rock solid certainty that Donald Trump has some very powerful and angry enemies. Knowing that makes me even more positive in my support for him.
