Sen. John McCain (RINO-AZ) was the person who handed the “Trump dossier” over to the FBI in 2017. We know the DNC and Clinton campaign funded the dossier.
A top McCain associate will be subpoenaed. Here’s why…
From The Hill:
The House Intelligence Committee has issued a subpoena to an associate of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) over his connection with the controversial dossier containing unverified allegations about President Trump and his ties to Russia, The Hill confirmed on Wednesday.
Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) wants to talk to David Kramer, a former State Department official and current senior director at the nonprofit McCain Institute, about his visit to London in November 2016, a source familiar with the matter confirmed.
While in London, Kramer met with the dossier’s author, former British spy Christopher Steele, at McCain’s request, to view “the pre-election memoranda on a confidential basis,” according to court filings.
We now know McCain got the dossier directly from Fusion GPS.
From BizPac Review:
In an article titled, “Hero or hired gun? How a British former spy became a flash point in the Russia investigation,” the newspaper detailed how McCain came to have a copy of the unverified dossier that he then forwarded to the FBI.
The article erases any doubt that McCain may not have known the origins of the dossier. It’s not clear if the Republican lawmaker knew that the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign provided funding for the research.
Andrew Wood, a former British ambassador to Moscow and friend of Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy behind the dossier, reached out to David Kramer to get the research on Trump into the hands of the Republicans, The Post reported.
Kramer, a former State Department official and close associate of McCain, would arrange for Wood to meet the senator in Canada in December 2016.
Wood described what was in the infamous dossier and told McCain, who he said “was visibly shocked,” that he could arrange for him to review it.
Well, well, well.
What now, McCain? Have anything to say for yourself?
