FLAKE: ‘President Trump should heed the warnings of the Justice Department and FBI…’

(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) After reports that President Donald Trump will release a classified memo, Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, released statements opposing the president, saying the decision is anti-American and pro-Putin.

The four-page memo contains information that shows the FBI used a secret surveillance program, under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), to spy on the Trump campaign.

The FBI used information from a speculative dossier, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, to get a surveillance warrant for Carter Page, a foreign policy advisor on the Trump campaign.

The FBI would not have received a warrant without the unsubstantiated information contained in the Steele dossier.

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-California, is the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, where the memo originated.

“It’s clear that top officials used unverified information in a court document to fuel a counter-intelligence investigation during an American political campaign,” Nunes said, according to Time.

This is the information that Flake and McCain didn’t want the American public to see.

“In 2016, the Russian government engaged in an elaborate plot to interfere in an American election and undermine our democracy,” McCain said in a press release. “And while we have no evidence that these efforts affected the outcome of our election, I fear they succeeded in fueling political discord and dividing us from one another.”


Democrats like Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-New York, have argued that the alleged Trump-Putin collusion poses a greater threat to the United States than the FBI’s confirmed assault on Trump in the 2016 election.

McCain made the same claim.

“The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s,” McCain said. “The American people deserve to know all of the facts surrounding Russia’s ongoing efforts to subvert our democracy, which is why Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation must proceed unimpeded.”

Flake, another anti-Trump Republican, didn’t want the memo released either.

“President Trump should heed the warnings of the Justice Department and FBI, and reverse his reported decision to defy long-standing policies regarding the disclosure of classified information,” Flake said in a statement. “The president’s apparent willingness to release this memo risks undermining U.S. intelligence-gathering efforts, politicizing Congress’ oversight role, and eroding confidence in our institutions of government.”

    How about Never McCainers or Flakers? One’s a RINO and the other’s a pathetic loser who can’t stand the fact that someone who’s actually getting things done in DC (you know NOT a career politician) so he’s trying to mitigate President Trump’s actions. Well, good luck with that.

  • Antonio

    I tough macclauklee died few weeks ago man how much longer we have to wait bottle of champagne it’s ready to pop up

    • frank shea

      That is awful!
      The old bird just lost his way!
      Jealousy has blurred his vision.
      Flake is a counterfeiter who can’t believe President Trump is a real American Man!

      • Antonio

        This same guy is involved handling the dossier to FBI after he sent a staff member to personally get a hard copy from England so this guy is one the guys start this whole Russia crap, no respect for this low life scum bag

  • TexRancher

    It appears that both McCain and Flake have crossed the line from Flat Out RINOS to TRAITORS against our political system!

    • frank shea

      They should both go play in traffic with Wacky Pelosi and
      Crying Schumer!

      • sophie bonner

        They need to play in Gitmo.

    • slk5

      i was taught if you have nothing good to say to someone, then don’t say anything, as far as flake and mccain, my 2 senators, NOTHING…

    • ravenwings

      Looks like McCain was the Republican that first initiated this and then the DNC/Hillary took it over. All these people involved in this scam should be heading for Gitmo.. That is a large prison that can hold them all. There was no Russian interference at all!! Turns out the interference with the whole mess was Hillary!! Knew she was corrupt just didn’t know how dirty she really is.

      • chris VN

        This might be why Trump said he’s keeping Gitmo open.

  • euriqa

    So sad! Senator John McCain has turned his back on President Trump’s committed efforts to “Make America Great Again”. The aged Senator McCain’s position being expressed now by him is extremely sad to her coming from one who endured torture and imprisonment with physical injuries resulting from torture by the enemy. Thank you for your military service; I am totally confused as to your political career as a stated Republican with a very strong bent to support too many of the socialist gradualism (divide and conquer for democrat votes) of the democratic party. lee1233

    • Mike

      Sadly, McCain turned his back on freedom loving Americans a long time ago. He has is for big government and never was a true conservative. the press branded him a maverick not because he was conservative but because he voted against conservatism more than liberalism. He’s been a RINO for a very long time.

      • ravenwings

        Yep and he used his “hero” status as a bargaining chip to stay in power. People voted for him feeling sorry for him.

        • chris VN

          And also with his father the Admiral’s help, to get a presidential pardon.

        • Debra Shawver

          We tried to oust him but he is in Soros back pocket , dems crossed over during the primary giving him a win barely over Dr ward….he is dirty as they come with flake close on his tail…why he is not running again in AZ….we here cannot stand either of them

  • Peter J

    Both of them need to go now!

  • Slav2012

    McCain hates Trump almost as much as Pelosi and Schumer. But the real prize here is the Dems being slow will spend most of the next 7 days wasting time dealing with the fallout and then bang, the CR has expired and a budget deal has to be made. With no time and resources left, they cant afford a second shutdown and have to cave again. Trump wins what he wants, a budget that includes money for a wall. Dems lose even more of their base.

  • John Henkel

    I had to make an Emergency Run for MORE Pop Corn, but I think I now have Enough now to last through Indictments and Prosecution, Bring’em ON !! Mr President, More MAGA Please !! Johnman

    • merbar12

      LOL! Great post Mr. Henkel!

  • Jim Rothgeb

    Dig a big hole, fill it with ashes, that equals McCain. One Big Ash Hole.

  • Vern Steinhoff

    Surprise-Surprise These two jackasses are pathetic. Remember McCain couldn’t even beat a closet Muslim that is worthless as he proved. If I was McCain I would be ashamed also.

  • frank shea

    McCain and your girlfriend Flake go away!
    President Trump is JUST catching his Sea-Legs!

    The DEMI Nightmare just began!!!!!!

  • Barry Kruger

    Flake & McCain = 2 Creeps. More swamp draining is needed !

    • merbar12

      Here, here!! It’s finally happening!

  • mustangjohn

    Just the fact that those two losers don’t want it released says a lot.

  • SA Ander

    Better that they keep mouth shut , but that isn’t going to happen.

  • The Redhawk


  • JDK

    If Flake and McCain wanted it kept secret then that alone tells you it should be released.

    • The Redhawk

      JUST like when listening to Pelosi and DA SCHMUCK hear what they say and BELIEVE THE OPPOSITE

      • ravenwings

        They sure went out on a limb for ol Hillary didn’t they. The democrats are dirty!!

        • Mountain_Dew_518

          I agree. Demon-Rats are dirtier than hogs wallowing in slop.

        • The Redhawk

          calling PIGS wallowing in their CRAP ” Dirty” is too kind….They are Enemy Combatants to US

  • JWB

    Didn’t Mr. McCain “hand-deliver” the infamous dossier to the feds?
    There will be a “mountain” of bs and cya going on in the coming days.

    • Mountain_Dew_518

      Songbird sure did.

      • JWB

        MD, hate is a burdensome sin and seems to have distorted Mr. McCain’s judgment terribly.
        Best Regards

        • Mountain_Dew_518

          I agree with you, JWB.

    • Klikhir Tulagin

      I believe Comey circulated it around DC and when McCain got a copy, he ‘reported’ it to Comey – giving Comey a pretext to insist that it be taken seriously – because it was a referral from a Senator, doncha know. Does that make McCain a member of the Criminal Conspiracy?

      • JWB

        Greetings! Sir
        A “high” ranking, elite Senator at that, so the “file” must have had credibility. Correct?
        Not sure if the good senator was a “member”, but an unwitting co-conspirator at the very least, wouldn’t You “say”?
        Best Regards

        • Klikhir Tulagin

          ‘Unwitting’? McCain? I shall have to think about that one.

          • JWB

            KT, a man “filled”with envy, “blanketed”with hate and “thirsting” for revenge, will always find himself in a troublesome situation and venerable to further “deception”. Blinded by darkness!
            Best Regards

  • Thanh Nguyen

    Those who shamelessly betray their own party in crucial circumstances like these should leave it forever.

    • sophie bonner

      They are. MCCain is dying. Flake can’t get re-elected, so isn’t running. Prayers answered.

  • JWB

    These “gentlemen”, make winning easy.

  • kate777

    Senators McCain and Flake are sad examples of lack of character and integrity. Arizona is sad that both these men have taken the path they have taken. Well, both have made their beds and will have to sleep in them.

  • James in Texas

    I just want the “Tail-gate Twins” to go home, Period!

    • Mountain_Dew_518

      Sure wish they would take Lindsissy Graham with them.

  • Gary Hildebrand

    Once again the Rinos are complaining but have nothing to offer. Two traitors seems like to me.

  • Janis

    Please revoke both of their Republican cards. These two, who will be gone soon, are officially both Democrats.

  • Kimball Romney

    Both McCain and Flake are perfect examples of why we need term limits in all political offices

  • Tom Fenner

    I lived in AZ for over 50 years. I voted for both McCain and Flake. I hate to say that they were wasted votes. They both disgust me. I’m glad that Flake is getting out, and this should be McCain’s last go-round. They’re part of the swamp.

  • John

    Poor Arizona,well I hope you get it right this time as Grampa John gets his jello and blanket, and Sugar Frosted Flake goes home to give anti Trump speeches to himself in the shower.
    The damage the FBI and DOJ under O was self inflicted. This information about disinformation HAD to be released. Can we NOW call off the fake investigation. Start a very REAL one starting with Comey being charged along with his crew of incompetent self important goofs. Can HRC be far behind?

  • Mike

    We need to understand that McCain and Flake are more anti American and anti constitutional then anti Trump. How else could their actions be explained! They are both overdue to be replaced by true conservative American loving senators to serve the Arizona people and America first.

  • pudge1

    These guys are wrong and they know it. Why do they want to undercut Trump? Someone has to be paying them. Lets investigate their finances.

    • Mountain_Dew_518

      Songbird McCain & Flake are true Demon-Rats. Maybe they don’t want it out because they may be involved as well with the memo & dossier. After all Songbird received funds from Soro we definitely know about. Songbird will meet his maker soon & will go down in history as a disgrace to America.
      These 2, (Songbird & Flake), need to be gone & voted out or recalled since they do nothing for the American people at all. They are there to cause havoc. I do hope it comes out that they are also involved with the all the scandal with FBI & DOJ. Good-bye Songbird & Flake.

    • Debra Shawver

      Check with george soros and the other Bilderberg one world government folks..these 2 are anti-American

  • gahh

    Why don’t they just come out as Democrats, and stop pretending to be Republicans. At least they can stop all their lying.

  • Askjrsk

    Looks like MORE LIES from McCain Flake and Schiff for brains. We know whose word you can take to the bank and those whose word is worthles lies.

    • Mountain_Dew_518

      You got that right.


    Two traitors , what did you expect form them.

  • Doug Steltenpohl

    it is a known fact that both McCain and flake are rino’s and would look perfectly ok with a D behind their name.. and remember the McCain sent a staffer across the pond to GET the dossier.. McCain should follow Flake out the door.. both are a disgrace

    • sophie bonner

      MCCain is dying of brain cancer, so it won’t be long until he is out the door.

  • Ken

    There has been 0 evidence that Russia did anything, that is zero as in none, nada, nix. Get it? These two looneys are dead wrong. Of course the FBI and Justice Dept don’t want their ineptitude exposed. Of course. What idiots!

  • Yosemite Sam

    McCain and Flake, liberal Demo-Rats disguised as worthless RINO’s. These two fools wanting to keep this FISA INTEL MEMO secret, proves McCain was more than happy to cooperate in delivering the FUSION GPS Dossier, to all involved in this silent coup against a duly elected POTUS [Trump]. Both McCain and Flake are performing a disservice to their AZ constituents.

    McCain and Flake are toast, and they know full well they will lose when the time arrives to defend their Senate Seat.

  • Netencho


  • JR

    Trump promised to expose the scum in DC, party affiliation doesn’t matter. We have seen McCain betray the Republicans and Flake is in the same boat. Traitors to both their Party and Americans.
    Trump is doing what he promised, surprising for President.

  • MacZ

    McCain delivered the garbage dossier to Comey after sending an underling to Europe to get it. He stands to look like the dupe he is. And Flake is just a Trump hating fool looking to cause trouble before retiring.

  • Wilson Faris

    Just two more to be drained from the swamp

  • Jo

    I never agreed with what Trump said about McCain not being a hero but wish McCain would get over it. He has bucked the President on everything and consequently divided the party. If releasing the memo exposes problems in the FBI, why is that not a good thing?? People should not be able to break the law and get away with it no matter what position they hold…and it looks like Comey looked the other way while all this was happening…I’m sure we haven’t heard the end of it.

  • ADRoberts

    Now that the memo has been released (I printed it out) someone needs to demand that McCain and Flake explain why they were so desperate to keep it secret. The obvious answer is that it’s release VINDICATES Trump. And these two traitors were and are still trying desperately to take Trump out. WHY?
    Bilderbergs aka NEW WORLD ORDER.
    And maybe a distraction from the FACT they they are NOT doing anything to undo what Obama did.

  • general

    All these traitors who tried stopping this must be investigated, having plenty of dirt hidden they want it kept locked.
    Why else would they keep this a secret, when it all is revealed they will be tried for treason and hanged as Washington did when he found them, gave the orders to find and hang them on site…
    These animal traitors must be used as, so we can regain our nation..

  • Jim

    Both of these liberal d-RATS voted in as rinos need to be DEAD. Period.

    NeverTrumpers McCain and Flake Wanted Memo Kept Secret

    Is He afraid of the Black Death getting Him before He Can Lie to His Maker about it being all Trumps because He was a Bad Senator .

  • Edward Marquez

    You have to excuse McCain and Flake. One has a bad head and the other is as dumb as Wood.

  • sophie bonner

    Flake and MCCain are traitors to their Country right up until they are gone. McCain/Flake would do anything to take our President down. At least when Flake drops out (because he can’t get re-elected), he won’t have access to any more corrupting power. Karma is taking care of that bitter, vile old man, McCain.

  • travis690

    Two of the most un-American RINO Senators opposing an action of President Trump. What else is new?

    From what I have seen, covering up government abuse is par for the course for these two. Why are they always siding with the Foolish Bucket of Imbeciles and the Department of Justice (sic)? They say that they are correct about everything, yet always refuse to allow their “proof” to be presented, shrouding it in a veil of secrecy. Instead, they would rather engage in clownish behavior by criticizing President Trump for wanting to undo the damage they have conspired to do, and succeeded in doing, over the last 40 years.

    Americans are less free today than the first day John McCain became a United States Senator. That’s enough of an indictment of his record that is needed.

  • omikehawk

    McCouldn’t is so jealous that Trump beat the Sea Hag, yet he couldn’t even beat Bathhouse Barry, he will do anything to get even! And Flakey Puff? He’s just stupid!
