Sen. John McCain's claim he has nothing to do with the McCain Institute doesn't pass smell test

The Saudi's gave $1 million to the McCain Institute and you know how mush John McCain loves the Saudis.
McCain is facing questions about his ties to an eponymous nonprofit, after Bloomberg reported the Saudi government had donated $1 million to the nonprofit’s fundraising arm...
The McCain Institute for International Leadership was created in December 2012, with an $8.7 million donation in unused funds from McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign...
McCain regularly attends events and fundraisers hosted by the McCain Institute. His wife, Cindy McCain, is on the institute’s Human Trafficking Advisory Council, working with the nonprofit to raise awareness for her main policy issue. Many of McCain’s longtime political allies sit on the nonprofit’s board of directors. Tax records show a longtime McCain fundraiser, Carly Eudy, maintains the McCain Institute Foundation’s financial records.
In the video embedded below, McCain again claims he has nothing to do with the McCain Institute and they only use his name.

McCain's claim is about as credible as Hillary's Clinton Foundation claims.
