Granted, McPain, b/k/a Senator John McCain did not exactly graduate from the top of his class at the US Naval Acadamy. However even McPain was smart enough to know the difference between intelligence and democrat political opposition research, from Breitbart :
Late Senator John McCain provided disgraced former FBI chief James Comey with five separate reports from Christopher Steele that the FBI didn’t previously possess related to unsubstantiated allegations of collusion between Russia and President Trump’s 2016 campaign, the Justice Department’s recent Inspector General report revealed.
The IG report discloses that McCain gave five new Steele reports to Comey that the FBI did not previously possess, showing that McCain served as a conduit for Steele’s information to reach the FBI even after the British ex-spy was formally cut off as an FBI source.
It is not clear whether McCain knew at the time that Steele had previously been terminated as an FBI source.
If you happen to go by McPain’s earthly remains, feel free to water the flowers.
