Arizona Republican Senator John McCain didn’t quite manage to stay away from problems. McCain was pretty harsh in his criticism for President Trump, and we didn’t thought that he’d go this deep in the matter. But, everyone has their own way of handling failure. Now McCain faces a massive scandal, and it involves $9 million.

Sen. McCain used about $9 million from his 2008 presidential campaign for a new foundation. You’re already guessing – it has McCain’s name written on it. The McCain Institute for International Leadership is created with the help of McCain’s unspent campaign millions.

This institute is some sort of “legacy” for McCain. Sources say that the institute “is educated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom.” The McCain Institute for International Leadership has full assets of $8.1 million, and it’s a tax-exempt non-profit organization. McCain’s legacy is associated with Arizona State University.

However, both conservative and liberal critics consider this institute to represent a conflict of interest for the senator.

The former Navy pilot was shot down in North Vietnam in 1967, and remained imprisoned in the infamous Hanoi Hilton until 1973. Today he is a major political name in the capital, and bears the role of chairman of the Senate Committee on Armed Services.

It’s believed that McCain’s plans and organizations are pretty similar to Hillary’s Clinton Global Initiative. This is nothing but a conflict of interests and shady donors.

The organization received $100,000 from George Soros and Teneo. Could this get any worse? We bet that there are other donors who don’t quite fit the moral profiles.

McCain never commented upon the $1 million Saudi Arabian donation in 2016. Another $100,000 came from a Moroccan company who is facing charges of worker abuse and exploitation. The Pivotal Group is another major donor. This foundation has given about $205,000 to NIAC, the vocal advocate of the Iranian nuclear deal Obama took part in.

What do you think about this information? How will McCain explain his donors?
