WikiLeaks: John McCain in 2008 illegally solicited campaign contribution from Russia

john-mccain-lord-of-the-tarp1

RINO senator John McCain (R-Arizona) was a diehard anti-Trumper in the 2016 campaign. McCain also went fully on board with the Obama administration and the MSM’s fake story that the Russian government had intervened in the election to favor Trump by hacking into and transmitting to WikiLeaks damaging Democrat emails — an assertion that remains unverified and unsubstantiated to this day. See:

Along with fellow Republican senator Lindsey Graham (SC), McCain is one of a bipartisan group of senators calling for an investigation into Russian hacking of the 2016 election to help Trump defeat Hillary Clinton. McCain is also a co-sponsor of the Russian Review Act that would impose strict new congressional oversight and veto power over the Trump administration if it decided to lift sanctions on Russia.

The irony is that according to documents obtained by WikiLeaks, it is John McCain who in 2008 had solicited a campaign contribution from Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin. U.S. law forbids presidential candidates from seeking foreign donations.

The documents are two:

(1) A 4-page letter, dated September 29, 2008, from John McCain to Vitaly Churkin, who was Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations at the time, asking for a campaign contribution “of $35, $50, $100, $500, $1,000, $2,500 or even $5,000 to the McCain-Palin Victory 2008”.

Below are screenshots of pages 1 and 4 of McCain’s letter:

(2) Statement by the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations, dated October 20, 2008:

“We have received a letter from Senator John McCain requesting financial contribution to his Presidential campaign.

In this connection we would like to reiterate that Russian officials, the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations or the Russian Government do not finance political activity in foreign countries.”

Here’s a screenshot of the Statement:

WikiLeaks released the Statement on October 20, 2008, stating that “Wikileaks staff have verified the authenticity of the document.”

Vitaly Churkin was Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN from 2006 until his sudden death in New York City three days ago on February 20, 2017, the eve of his 65th birthday. From Wikipedia:

The immediate cause was heart failure, according to Russian diplomatSergei Ordzhonikidze.[16] The Russian Foreign Ministry noted that Churkin died while at work and expressed condolences to Churkin’s family.[17]

[…] On 21 February 2017 the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office released the preliminary results of an autopsy performed on Churkin, which states that the cause of death needed further study, which often indicates the need for toxicology tests.[19] The same day Churkin was posthumously awarded the Russian Order of Courage[20] and the Order of the Serbian Flag 1st class.

This traitor has to be removed.  If he can't support our President and stabs him in the back over and over, he's not fit to serve in the senate.

Investigate and remove this faux/war hero traitor, post haste!!

if mr o can get cash from red china and communist russia, why couldn't mccain do it, it is only fair.

Possible solution? Put a round in it?

ALERT ALERT

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
