Remember When John McCain Asked For Russian Campaign Cash? We Do. Here’s The Proof.

John McCain has been among the most vocal of President Trump’s GOP critics. (Playing the very same talk-to-anyone-in-the-media-to-complain role that he did during the G.W.  Bush presidency when McCain was constantly going on liberal news programs to complain about then-President Bush. One of Senator McCain’s favorite complaints these days are his dire warnings of undo “Russian influence” in the 2016 Election – that such influence would be dangerously illegal and require a full investigation by Congress.

**Ahem** – it would appear the senator has forgotten how his campaign once reached out to acquire Russian cash in a previous presidential election, (a serious violation) and when he was caught, Mr. McCain shrugged it off as a “mailing glitch.”  

Here is the media report of the “mailing glitch” that took place in 2008 via Newsday:

“…Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, received a fundraising appeal from the Republican presidential nominee Thursday, said spokesman Ruslan Bakhtin.

…Presidential campaigns are legally barred from accepting foreign contributions.”

The Russian Ambassador mentioned in the earlier Newsday report, Vitaly Churkin is pictured above on the left. He died suddenly this past week of an apparent heart attack in New York one day shy of his 65th birthday.

John McCain has devolved into a very odd, manic, and aggressive globalist in recent years, pushing for open borders, beating the drums of war in Syria and now Russia, and constantly berated a sitting Republican president (Donald Trump) while Mr. McCain remained mostly silent when that president was Barack Obama.
