McCain Institute Funded By Soros And Saudi Arabia

The McCain Institute for International Leadership, established by Senator John McCain (R-AZ), is starting to look like The Clinton Foundation.

Concerns of influence peddling raised by Hillary Clinton and The Clinton Foundation are also present with McCain and his non-profit institute.

McCain’s foundation excepted donations from countries such as Saudi Arabia that have interests that can be impacted by the Senate. George Soros also supported McCain’s institute.

The Daily Caller reports:

Critics worry that the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive “Sedona Forum” bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) that annually co-mingled special interests and powerful political players in alleged pay-to-play schemes.

The institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.” Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals.

And Bloomberg reported in 2016 on a $1 million Saudi Arabian donation to the institute, a contribution the McCain group has refused to explain publicly.

McCain, an outspoken critic of President Trump, should realize the appearance of a conflict of interest should be avoided especially after the drama surrounding The Clinton Foundation but apparently, the “maverick” senator thinks differently.
