McCain planned to confront Trump with the dossier his aide collected
What a surprise when it turned out that the FBI and the press already had it! Ace calls it blackmail, since the idea was to force him out of the race. It would be pretty scary that McCain fell for a piece of opposition research from the Clintons, too, except that McCain isn't exactly known as the sharpest tool in the shed already.
I don't think I would go so far as to call this blackmail, depending on exactly how it was handled, I suppose. It says a lot more about McCain than it does about Trump.
Allegedly, Steele promised the dossier was given to McCain exclusively, despite having already shopped it around to the FBI and various news organizations.
Question: Did McCain pay for the dossier? Besides the plane ticket to London for his aide, that is. Because, you know, that would be colluding with the Russians AND the Democrats.
