A new bombshell report shows that John McCain has some Russian ties of his own and requested campaign donations from Russian officials when he was running for president in 2008.
This is the same John McCain that has been leading a vicious campaign against the Russian government since the November election.
In January, McCain declared that the Russian “hacking” of the election was an “act of war.”
Following the sudden death of Russian UN ambassador Vitaly Churkin this week WikiLeaks released a series of documents on McCain’s request for donations from the Russians.
20 Oct 2008 statement from the Russian Federation to the United states in relation to an alleged letter from the McCain campaign requesting a financial contribution from Russia:
“We have received a letter from Senator John McCain requesting financial contribution to his Presidential campaign.
In this connection we would like to reiterate that Russian officials, the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations or the Russian Government do not finance political activity in foreign countries.”
Wikileaks staff have verified the authenticity of the document. Obviously the statement is designed to undermine the McCain campaign and is an extremely interesting Russian intervention into US domestic politics. It remains to be seen whether the play, which lacks subtlety, will backfire and generate support for McCain.
According to the document metadata (which can be manipulated, though rarely is), the document was created by “INT10”, underwent two revisions and was saved by “INT9” with a version of word is registered to organization “MID”. Although Wikileaks normally removes metadata, we have not done so in this instance since the document is intended to be public and may be a significant political play by Russian intelligence.
And according to Reddit users John McCain illegally asked for campaign donations from the Russian Ambassador. The same ambassador that died suddenly on Monday.
This globalist shrieks about Russian influence while he himself participated in it.
The Russians told McCain they would not donate to his campaign.
Shocking news to hear the passing away of Amb Vitaly Churkin. A brilliant ambassador who served his country & people. May he rest in peace. pic.twitter.com/pFodXqs5Qm
