Senator John McCain has long been a reliable ally for the Left whenever contentious issues are brought up in Congress.
The man has a particularly strong fetish for open borders and mass legalization of the invaders that currently occupy or nation.
While McCain has gotten a pass for his horrible record because of his “war hero” status, he has a ton of skeletons in his closet, any of which could see him out of a job if his constituents paid more attention.
But that may not be necessary, as a recent revelation concerning McCain’s dirty fundraising connections could soon be making front-page news.
As reported at The Constitution, back in 2012, the Arizona “Republican” turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign to a new foundation bearing his name, the McCain Institute for International Leadership.
The stated “mission” of this institute is to preserve McCain’s “legacy” and “is dedicated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom.”
It’s a tax-exempt non-profit foundation with assets valued at $8.1 million and associated with Arizona State University.
Both conservative and liberals alike, however, are both in agreement that the institute is a major conflict of interest for the senator.
That’s because the donors and the way it operates is uncannily similar to the corrupt and now defunct Clinton Global Initiative.
It’s an obvious pay-to-play operation, where special interest groups can give their donations in return for McCain’s “help” when it comes to policy issues that might affect them.
For example, the Institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire and leftist puppet-master George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.
Teneo has deep ties to the Clinton family, as it’s the source of many of their lucrative speaking and business deals.
Also, Bloomberg reported in 2016 on a $1 million Saudi Arabian donation to the Institute, a contribution the McCain group has refused to explain publicly.
So what, exactly, is McCain hiding? It’s rather obvious, it’s just that few are willing to ask the right questions because of the powerful war hero mythos attached to McCain.
But the reality is that McCain has hidden behind that aura for decades, while at the same time enriching himself and being nothing more than an ally for the Left.
He’s no conservative, he’s a turncoat, plain and simple.
With his self-named institute, McCain has already stepped over ethical lines if not legal ones. The man is a stain on the Republican Party. One that will hopefully be removed next election cycle.
