EXCLUSIVE: Soros, Clinton-Linked Teneo Among Donors to McCain Institute (traitor exposed)
daile ^ | 6-19-17 | Richard Pollock

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain in 2012 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 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.

McCain, a former Navy pilot who was shot down over North Vietnam in 1967 and was then a prisoner of war in the infamous Hanoi Hilton until 1973, is a major political force in Washington, D.C. He is presently chairman of the Senate Committee on Armed Services.

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.

It’s been obvious for a long time. Plus McCain appears mentally confused. Now J. McCain seems in a hurry to start war with Russia, start WW III.

McCain is a venomous asshole! (If he were a female, I could say “venomous harridan!” But he is male, so venomous asshole it is!)

And, a traitor to boot!

This is precisely why the Clintons need to be prosecuted.

As this sort of corruption becomes common, the Republic is doomed.

The Clintons pioneered it, now everyone sees that no one is punished. It becomes the “new normal”.

McCain has been working with the DEMs a long time. He got off on the Keating Five. The USS Forestal incident was never investigated properly, since his Daddy the admiral pulled him off the ship that night. They have tapes of him colluding with the North Vietnam. HE NEVER APOLOGIZED FOR THESE TAPES.
He did not insist that all the POWs be returned, but turned his back on the POW families. He takes money from Soros for his foundation.

Reagan didn’t like him. It was Nancy that fell for his flattery.

It’s time for SongBird Mccain to retire.

"Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain in 2012 turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign"

And had he not put Sarah Palin on a leash and let her spend that in PA, OH, MI, & WI, maybe, just maybe, he'd would have retired this past January as President McCain...

What has got to be even more salt in that wound is he probably knows she would have spent it frugally and used it to it's maximum advantage....

Trump needs to go aggressively after faux “non profits” Like the SPLC and remove their tax exemptions for racist, discriminatory views.

The real, legitimate nonprofits should be encouraged to help people truly in need, like health care bills rather some of the ridiculous “causes” for their tax exemptions

Anyone who’s done any work in the nonprofit area will tell us many of the organizations are silly and wastes of money.

It is said that many Hanoi Hilton veterans despise McCain.
Is it true that he made anti-American radio broadcasts while he was imprisioned?
If this is true & IF he was tortued & made to give supposed broadcasts, I would have no problem with it, but, how much torture did he endure?

Looks like the McCain equivalent of the Clinton Foundation.

I can’t believe I was duped into voting for this person!

I never voted for McStain.

However, I did what I could to keep his Marxist Muslim opponent from winning.

Charles Keating provided McCain with the basics of finance.
