    Senate Officials Confirm John McCain Expected to Step Down from U.S. Senate
    Posted on March 8, 2018 by admin

    Sen. John McCain is not expected to return the Washington D.C. politics, according to several sources who are closely monitoring his health and medical treatments at his ranch in Arizona.

    In fact, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is already in the process of selecting a candidate to run for McCain’s senate seat in a special election after McCain’s expected retirement from the Senate, sources said. Candidates were contacted this week in fact as Democrats jockey to find new blood to oppose the GOP-held seat in Arizona.

    “At this point, we are coming to terms that McCain is done here (in the Senate),” one Senate insider on the Hill said Wednesday. “Preparations are underway to deal with this.”

    Just weeks ago, a White House official said McCain — known for his anti-Trump leaks to the media and his connection to the bogus Trump dossier — was refusing to step down from the Senate despite his reported stage IV brain cancer diagnosis and treatments.

    Now, sources said, the GOP and Democrats are prepping for a likely special election for his Arizona senate seat. First, however, if McCain were to retire, the governor of Arizona would appoint an interim Republican to fill McCain’s seat before a special election.

    That would give the GOP another vote in the Senate as McCain has been absent since Christmas.

    As True Pundit reported Feb. 17:

    John McCain may never cast another vote in the U.S. Senate.

    But he plans to stay in Arizona and the U.S. Senate, according to a high-level White House source, regardless of GOP-backed pressure for him to retire from the Senate.


    Thomas Paine
    @Thomas1774Paine
    Met with D.C. heavyweight source today very plugged in who said McCain refuses to step aside even though he's dying and won't last the year. "It's all about him" the source said.

    4:50 PM - Feb 17, 2018

    Anyone else would retire from the Senate and allow Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey appoint a new GOP replacement.

    Not McCain.

    John McCain is a pretty good runner for a guy with a boot on his leg.

    Or legs. He switches the boot to different feet, all while recovering from an alleged “Achilles tear.”

    Another lie in a career-long list of lies, half-truths and manipulations stretching the truth from Washington D.C. to Arizona to Vietnam and back again. Several times.

    So it was of little surprise that when the bogus Trump dossier reached a fever pitch of debate and finger pointing on Tuesday, McCain was nowhere to be found.

    Missing In Action.

    Again.

    Is McCain even in D.C? No. Sources report he is still at his $15 million mountain-top compound in Arizona. Is he under treatment for his Stage IV cancer treatment. No one is saying. Like always with everything McCain, it’s hard to believe what is true and what is polished hype to make him appear to be a hero.

    But this was predicted in December and even before. True Pundit reported McCain would not return to D.C. if the dossier scandal stayed hot. it has. And McCain is not in the Beltway.

    From Dec. 14, 2017 in True Pundit, McCain Eyes Exit from Senate Amid ‘Stress’ from Growing Trump Dossier Scandal:

    John McCain is reportedly preparing to pull back from the U.S. Senate, according to Beltway insiders who say new demands to answer for his role in either underwriting or promoting the Trump phony dossier are stressing the Arizona senator’s fragile health.

    It is not clear whether McCain plans to outright retire from the Senate or simply focus on his Stage IV cancer treatments away from Washington, D.C. but many GOP insiders believe McCain’s last days in the Senate are close.

    Likely, McCain will not return after the Christmas break, many folks have privately confided.

    McCain has been away for the Senate all week, missing votes and debate about a number of topics including tax cuts.

    This is not the fist time McCain has sought medical treatment after his role in recent anti-Trump scandals have heated up.

    It is hard to tell if McCain’s health is genuinely declining or not because he has played that card often to slip and slide out of answering questions for his role in Fusion GPS’ bogus Trump dossier.
    • Emergency surgery.
    • Late stage cancer diagnosis.
    • Bad Achilles.
    • Boot on the wrong foot.
    • The wheelchair.
    • Now the hospital.

    McCain could in fact need all these medical devices and treatments. Or they could be props. Historically, McCain has been proven to simply lie. So it is hard for many to trust what he claims.

    A few weeks ago when McCain had vanished due to health reasons — again avoiding questions about the Trump dossier — he turned up in Italy slamming President Donald Trump.

    What is a guy with advanced brain cancer doing on a weekend junket to Italy if he is supposed to be treating his disease?

    That is the problem with folks who use illness for political gain: You never can tell if they are truly sick and if you criticize them for play acting when they are sick, then you can be easily labeled as insensitive. A guy like McCain is savvy enough to exploit such grey area.

    Looks like we were right on the money again.
    If at first you don't secede, try, try again!

    Sure, why not? Might as well replace democrat Mc Cain with another democrat.

    Really, FINALLY?

    We will finally GET RID OF the TRAITOR???


    I think of him every time I WISH we had some &*()&ED HEALTH CARE I could AFFORD!!!
    Be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled…Let no man deceive you by any means…..
    they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved….for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie….
    Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

    I bet Satan's bummin' at the prospect of McCain's soon arrival. He's been quite an invaluable asset to him over the decades, but it looks like there are plenty of demons lining up to fill his shoes.

    Waiting for him, Graham and others to go away is as frustrating as waiting to see gold and silver prices finally take off.

    Republican Governor would appoint Republican to fill unexpired period of Mc's term until a special election can be held. IMHO, if he is well enough to fly off to Italy, he is certainly well enough to fly off to D.C. But I'd rather hear that he''s in Italy than in D.C. JMO.

    Of course, I pray he repents of his sins, but doubting that will happen, my sorrow is assuaged by contemplating his long and toasty eternity in Hell.

    There are a lot of people waiting to piss on his grave.

    I bet Trump is thrilled, I know I am!! Good riddance. I was happy when Kennedy croaked and I'll be just as happy when McCain croaks. Both have done great damage to this country.

    Yeah, that has been my thinking too. I am unable to wish for someone's demise but I believe that McCain and Ted Kennedy were both evil men who did a lot of harm using the pressure of their political status in the Senate. I could not in good conscience vote for McCain when he ran for president, I always thought he was just as bad as Obama.

    I don't want McCain to die, just go away where he can no longer have any power or influence. God will take care of the judgement part. I am wondering if they went to him and said "Step down now or we will ruin any legacy/good reputation you hope to leave behind." That would matter to McCain, IMHO.

    I want him to die a horrible long suffering death without pain killers, stomped on at the mortuary, thrown in the incinerator still alive and then have a giant pineapple shoved up his arse by a nigger demon every day all day.........SPIT!

    Yep, rough crowd on the thread.

    What I do not understand, is why did the people of
    the state of Arizona, keep sending the treasonous basterd,
    back to the US Senate, everytime that he ran for reelection.

    The people of Arizona, are just as much responsible for
    what the POS McCain did in the US Senate, as he was.

    Which means, nothing is going to change when McCain
    is finally gone from the US Senate, nothing.

    Please be safe everyone, and please arm up.
