Senator McCain. Oh what a tangled web he weaved. Like a spider he wove an intricate web of “Russian collusion,” then admitted to passing the infamous unverified anti-Trump dossier to the FBI.
In the Congressional closed door Fusion GPS testimony, the 21 hours of testimony was unilaterally released by Senator Diane Feinstein recently. And in the testimony, Senator McCain was discussed, and his role in delivering the unverified document to the FBI.
Recently, Breitbart reported, “the goal of providing the dossier to McCain, the Fusion GPS founders explained, was to pass the information contained in the questionable document to the U.S. intelligence community under the Obama administration.”
As reported by the Washington Times:
“Mr. Steele… says his accusations against the president and his aides about a supposed Russian hacking conspiracy were never supposed to be made public, much less posted in full on a website for the world to see on Jan. 10.
He defends himself by saying he was betrayed by his client and that he followed proper internal channels by giving the dossier to Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, to alert the U.S. government.”
Buzzfeed printed the dossier on Jan 10th, 2017.
Other sources refused to print it at the time since it was known to be largely unverified. Buzzfeed is currently being sued by President Trump’s attorneys. Click HERE to see the 35 page PDF format dossier which Buzzfeed printed.
On Jan 11th Senator John McCain (R-AZ) released a statement about his role in giving the document to the FBI. Click HERE to read statement which follows below.
“Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public. 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.” ‘
Breitbart reported that former British Ambassador to Moscow, Sir Andrew Wood, points to McCain said as the first to tell him details inside the dossier at a security conference in Canada right after the election. Per Breitbart’s report, Wood said:
“I told him I was aware of what was in the report but I had not read it myself, that it might be true, it might be untrue. I had no means of judging really…
My mission was essentially to be a go-between and a messenger, to tell the senator and assistants that such a dossier existed.”
McCain is many things. And one of the things he is suppose to be is a Republican. What was he doing handing over a known unverified opposition research piece commissioned by the Hillary Clinton campaign to the FBI? To James Comey? Follow the money. This story is not over yet.
