The death of Senator John McCain over the weekend, although expected, brought out an avalanche of emotions and well-deserved tributes, praise and recollections of the American patriot.

The 6-term senior senator from Arizona was an iconic figure within the hallowed halls of the Senate. He was known for attempting to bridge political differences – and at times even became the topic of controversy.

McCain’s body will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda, and his funeral will take place at the Washington National Cathedral – a fitting tribute for the man who was dubbed a “maverick” by many of his colleagues. McCain marched to his own beat, which may have become more erratic within recent years.

There was an unpredictable and emotional side to McCain that became more and more contentious as he grew older. His feud with President Trump is an excellent example of how far out of sync he became. Worse than that, McCain voted against his own constituents as the deciding vote against repealing ObamaCare.

Astoundingly, after campaigning for years on repealing the Affordable Care Act, McCain took to the Senate floor at around 1:30 in the afternoon and voted “no” on the “Skinny Repeal” amendment to Obamacare. The legislation failed on a 49-51 vote tally.

The muffled gasps by Republicans said it all. McCain’s betrayal of those who voted for him – and who’ve suffered the most under ObamaCare with over 116% increase on unsubsidized premiums – will not soon be forgotten.

Chuck Schumer celebrated McCain’s arrogant “thumbs-down” approach saying, “All of us were so inspired by the speech and the life of the senator from Arizona.”

While it can’t be confirmed, many speculate that McCain’s “no” vote was driven more by his unbridled hate for President Trump than his responsibility towards his constituents.

However, what can be confirmed is how McCain became an intricate part of the Russian collusion hoax – and apparently wasn’t sorry for throwing America into an endless state of partisan division.

The good senator recently admitted that he was the “go-between” who gave the discredited dossier to the FBI – without verifying its source or its credibility. McCain was given the document by a former British ambassador to Moscow.

In all probability, the Arizona lawmaker would never have disclosed his alleged role in the phony and unverified document caper if it were not for the rare journalistic effort.

McCain attempted to explain his actions: “Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public.”

Adding “Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.”

A CNN report at the time disclosed additional information: “It came from a former British MI6 agent (Christopher Steele) who was hired from a political opposition research firm in Washington who was doing work about Donald Trump for both Republican and Democratic candidates opposed to Trump.” Coincidently the man McCain hates.

When pressed on the matter, McCain acknowledges “I would do it again!”

McCain has always been a paradox, but he was a great American. While we were not always in agreement with his actions, no one can deny that fact.
