The new book coming out by Senator John McCain will just further confirm that he’s a dirty player. A swamp creature who dwelled in Washington for way too long…not a conservative but just a bitter loser who sought revenge on Trump. Remember that Trump called McCain out on his war hero status that has been in question for some time. Bitter has-been presidential candidates like McCain and Mitt Romney need to sail off into the sunset but these two have chosen instead to try and hurt President Trump. Remember the thumbs down on the Obamacare vote? Remember Romney’s refusal to throw his support to President Trump? Yes, these two men are the definition of sour grapes.
It should come as no surprise that in sections of the book, previously viewed by The Daily Beast and other outlets, the Arizona senator harshly criticizes Trump:

“He has declined to distinguish the actions of our government from the crimes of despotic ones,” McCain writes. “The appearance of toughness, or a reality show facsimile of toughness, seems to matter more than any of our values.”

Patriotic Duty?
 Sen. John McCain’s upcoming book details how he handed to the FBI the infamous “dossier” of unproven allegations about President Trump, and defends the act as patriotic “duty.”According to a report Wednesday in the Daily Beast, Mr. McCain acknowledges in his upcoming book “The Restless Wave,” that he met personally with then-FBI director James P. Comey to give him the salacious material.

WT reports:

“I agreed to receive a copy of what is now referred to as ‘the dossier,’” the Arizona Republican wrote. “I reviewed its contents. The allegations were disturbing, but I had no idea which if any were true. I could not independently verify any of it, and so I did what any American who cares about our nation’s security should have done.”

 He said he went to see Mr. Comey “at his earliest convenience, handed him the dossier, explained how it had come into my possession.”
Duty Demanded?

“I said I didn’t know what to make of it, and I trusted the FBI would examine it carefully and investigate its claims. With that, I thanked the director and left. The entire meeting had probably not lasted longer than ten minutes. I did what duty demanded I do,” Mr. McCain wrote, according to the Daily Beast, which received advance copies of the book, due out May 22.

The dossier, compiled by a former British spy in the pay of Democratic opposition researchers, was published raw by Buzzfeed in January 2017 and reported on by other news outlets.
