Arizona Sen. John McCain hasn’t ever been a fan of President Trump, and after having a look at who’s funding his “charity” it’s easy to see why.
While McCain honorably served our nation in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War, his actions in recent years have been anything but honorable as he sold out his conservative base to side with the left on more than one occasion. In fact, since President Trump took office, McCain has been one of the loudest Republican voices against the President, leading many to question whose side he’s really one.
Well, thanks to the investigative research from the Daily Caller, we have some clarity on the matter.
A detailed report about the funding for the McCain Institute reveals that the career politician is in bed with America’s biggest enemies, including the very same people who made Bill and Hillary Clinton filthy rich as they sold off our nation to the highest bidders. In fact, listen among the Institute’s largest “donors” are George Soros, the Clinton-linked group Teneo, and other prominent leftist organizations that ooze corruption.
From the Daily Caller:
The institute is intended to serve as a “legacy” for McCain and “is dedicated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom.” It is a tax-exempt non-profit foundation with assets valued at $8.1 million and associated with Arizona State University.
Conservative and liberal critics, however, believe the institute constitutes a major conflict of interest for McCain, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.
Critics worry that the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive “Sedona Forum” bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) that annually co-mingled special interests and powerful political players in alleged pay-to-play schemes.
The institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.” Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals.
And Bloomberg reported in 2016 on a $1 million Saudi Arabian donation to the institute, a contribution the McCain group has refused to explain publicly.
In addition, the institute has taken at least $100,000 from a Moroccan state-run company tied to repeated charges of worker abuse and exploitation. The McCain group has also accepted at least $100,000 from the Pivotal Foundation, which was created by Francis Najafi who owns the Pivotal Group, a private equity and real estate firm.
The Pivotal Foundation has in the last three years given $205,000 to the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC), which has been a vocal advocate for the Iranian nuclear deal the Obama administration negotiated.
Isn’t that something? Although while shocking, I highly recommend reading the full report if you want to get a clearer picture of who McCain’s lying in bed with as he opposes our America First President, since it’s obviously not We the People who elected President Trump.
