Somehow he's serving for another six years too.
This is not a bad thing.
McCain has betrayed his country (again) and his party by getting knee-deep in this Russia nonsense. People are hurried to call him senile but he is not senile. Nancy Pelosi is senile. John McCain is a man that is well aware that his world is crumbling around him, and it is crumbling because he has been outmaneuvered by President Donald J. Trump.
I don't know if Trump has something over Comey (Weiner's laptop is a fun rumor) or if Comey is one of the good goys, but I think he will deliver for us. I think that Comey will not only soon end all the hopes and dreams of Russia conspiracytards, but will also make it apparent that the Russia meme has become Trump's most powerful political weapon. The sullen face you see on people like Feinstein is the realization that they now have to negotiate with a leverage-wielding President Donald J. Trump.
If Trump has hard proof of surveillance by Obama (he does), then we will have the privilege of witnessing a virtuoso in action. Honestly, the best thing the dems could do is bury Obama and get out in front of the story themselves. The alternative is to have Trump apply leverage and reveal information on a timeline that is best for him, and Trump is going to relish in extracting maximum pain. Trump is the media's master; he will continue to judo their momentum and end up on top every time. Trump loves manufacturing victories (fake cucking on immigration anyone?). Trump loves even more to deliver defeat when his opponents *know* victory is certain. It's going to be brutal.
Now it's possible that Trump has the goods and he will be perfectly content to never let them see the light of day. However, this requires that the gay mulatto behaves himself going forward, and we all know that he is far too arrogant to shut up and go away.
To the best part: if the dirty details of the Russia smear campaign come to light, John McCain will be the first to go down. The cucks have been rapidly walking away from this stink bomb. The dems have every reason to try and serve him up as a distraction from their own malfeasance. His flailing public statements show that they've already cut him out of the loop; he's out on an island. It gives me great satisfaction that it was a troll from newly-uncucked Rand Paul that drove him over the edge. It must really chap McCain's ass that Rand f**king Paul, of all people, has the President's ear.
It has also been alleged that McCain has been a leaker. Whether or not Trump & Co. were intentionally leaking disinfo about some highly restricted yet fairly innocuous information - say a conversation with Australia's PM - could be some 4D chess larping. However, Trump already having something on McCain could explain why he recklessly sided with the dems to spread the Russia smear. This is not the antifragile man's path.
McCain is obviously a problem and has irreparably betrayed Trump's trust. There is no coming back. I see two outcomes:
1. McCain is outed as a filthy rat bastard and is removed from office in deserved shame.
2. Trump makes sport of wielding his leverage. McCain bends the knee, kisses the slipper, and then Trump subjects him to a serious of embarrassing performances as a lapdog. McCain will dutifully serve his master so that he may hold onto his final shred of relevancy until he gracelessly expires.
Of course, since we're on the best timeline, McCain will probably bend the knee, humiliate himself, and Trump will f**k him anyway out of principle. McCain is out of friends.
