John McCain is speaking out after charges were filed against three Trump campaign figures, in a Russian “collusion” investigation that brought to light his own involvement in an effort to recruit Russian intelligence agents into an anti-Trump smear campaign.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain said Tuesday he does not think the trio of charges filed in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller will be the last, and other lawmakers agreed.

“I guarantee you more shoes will drop,” McCain, R-Ariz., told reporters…

…McCain said he doesn’t know who Mueller might be targeting next.

“I don’t know,” he said. “But they always have and they always will. I guarantee you this scandal is not over.”…

…McCain declined to draw a direct comparison to the Watergate scandal, which led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. He said he does not believe Trump will try to remove Mueller.

“I think we’ve seen that movie before,” McCain said, referring to Nixon’s firing of the independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox that helped lead to the former president’s ouster.

McCain added that he never heard of Papadopoulos, who Trump identified as a “low-level volunteer.”

Funny how he danced around his own ties to Russia.

    Let me remember what I know about Senator McCain – the losing RINO in the election of 2008 to the
    winner Marxist Muslim half-breed from Kenya B. Hussein Obama, previously a street agitator for the ACORN thugs:

    He was a son of the notable Navy Admiral in the WW2; as such he
    was accepted in the Naval Academy in spite of his low grades from high school;
    that in my book is called nepotism;

    In the academy he was at the bottom of the graduating class (well-
    #75 out of the class of 76) but passed due to his Admiral father; the school director
    directed his future bosses not to let McCain place a foot on any submarine –
    and so he passed his time in service scheduling time-offs for the marines in

    While in training he jumped and parachuted from 4 – FOUR –
    training planes for unknown reasons thus destroying those planes; apparently he
    got confused by the knobs and levers and panel lights;

    In Vietnam when his plane attracted North Vietnamese communist
    fire he abandoned the completely untouched war plane and parachuted into the
    enemy hands;

    The communists wanted to trade his name to Americans for
    substantial rewards – but McCain refused – that was his only true patriotic

    It’s not clear whether the taped confession McCain gave to his
    captors to avoid further torture has played a role in his postwar behavior in
    the Senate. That confession was played endlessly over the loudspeaker systems
    at all the communist prisons of captured US soldiers —to try to break down
    other prisoners—and was broadcast over Hanoi’s state radio. Reportedly, he
    confessed to being a war criminal who had bombed civilian targets and murdered
    innocent children. The Pentagon has a copy of that confession but will not release it. Also, no
    outsider I know of has ever seen a non-redacted copy of the debriefing of
    McCain when he returned from captivity, which is classified but could be made
    public by McCain.

    In Congress McCain was known as a watcher of wind indicator and so
    voted Republican as often as Democrat;

    In the elections of 2008 he was just an incoherent moderate RINO
    trying to please everybody – and was swept by the Chicago vote fraud machine.

    Since then he has shown
    himself a low-IQ bloviating gasbag with no political program of his own except
    in voting 50-50 with his Republican colleagues. Just like that other low-IQ
    bloviating gasbag John Hanoi Kerry he just improvises his politics as the wind
    blows on any particular day. WAR HERO – hell no! McCain is the chairman of the
    Veterans Committee, and those criminal Veteran Administration scandals remain

    McCain was called “Songbird” while he was a prisoner in North Vietnam for all of his help to the enemy. He was pardoned by Nixon but those records were hidden due to his father the Admiral. He’s a traitor and a POS.
