    Come on now Manc.

    The Steele dossier was Russian intel disinformation fabrication the Fusion GPS / Clinton campaign were only too glad to pay for and receive. Steele himself admitted its Russian intel sources.

    When the FBI investigation into Trump and his campaign didn't find anything, the Steele Dossier was pressed into service to get the FISA warrant, with the bet that given this something would be uncovered, but no, they didn't find anything even with the FISA warrant.

    Calling the Steele dossier as having facts is a stretch.

    How about we go about proving that it's correct and accurate on anything first?

    Well, Cohen being in Prague has been generally denied by Cohen himself. Whether that means it's been debunked or not appears to be a matter of opinion.

    It's really starting to piss me off that fewer and fewer outlets that hold themselves out to be providers of "News" fail to provide an indication of where one can find the supporting documentation for their commentary.
    At the time I saw the Fox story on McCain I didn't see one other source carrying the above newsbreak story which proves unsealed court documents say McCain lied about his role in leaking the unverified steele document to the media. This should never have been given to the media until every bit of it was proved verifiable.

    There was no Cohen visit to Prague proving there was no meetings with Kremlin bigwigs.
    Plus, the kicker is, McCain knew this dossier was paid for by the Clinton campaign as a tool to use against Trump.
    Plus, Steele probably hated Trump just as much as McCain.

    Why is this breaking news report not being covered by every news bureau?

    Regardless of how one feels about John McCain, the man, the long time senator who reached across the aisle to Democrats, a decorated war hero, a beloved father and husband, friend of many, I knew his hands were dirty when it came to the dossier and he lied about being involved in releasing an UNVERIFIED dossier to the media.

    IMO, Trump's remarks about McCain not being a hero fueled McCain's vindictiveness. What a petty, false equivalency on McCain's part to give an unverified dossier about a sitting president to the media. Was he consumed with sour grapes or what?
    your opinion, as expressed, is that of a Trump cultist.

    the right's attacks, which continue, are disgusting. And to think that you people wrap yourself with the flag. It is the positively surreal.

    trumpets are just awful people. there is no way to sugar coat it.

    Already been done, really the only two things still in question, is if it wasn't Cohen who went to Prague, who was it?

    And is the piss tape real?

    I am passed the point of just being pissed off, I have reached the point of outrage.

    His attorney, a longtime Democrat and trust confident of Hillary Clinton, backs the above up.

    Because this is not breaking news, it was common knowledge that McCain turned over a copy to the FBI as soon as it was given to him...

    Stop with the sophomoric personal attacks and attack the story or just fade into the sunset .
    I am in no mood for your nonsense.
