Newly released information confirms that the late Senator John McCain and his longtime associate David Kramer pushed the fake Trump – Russia dossier to the FBI and also to over a dozen left-wing journalists.
In December we reported that John McCain and his associate David Kramer pushed the fake Russia dossier to the FBI and Buzzfeed News. The Daily Caller reported:
“A longtime associate of late Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain provided a copy of the infamous Steele dossier to BuzzFeed News, according to an explosive court filing released Wednesday.
David Kramer, a former State Department official who was an executive at the McCain Institute, provided BuzzFeed News reporter Ken Bensinger with a copy of the dossier Dec. 29, 2016, according to a filing submitted Wednesday by U.S. District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro.
Yesterday additional court filings were released that show that Kramer provided the fake dossier to multiple individuals in the media.
“Newly unsealed court filings show how the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and an associate shared with the FBI and a host of media outlets the unverified dossier that alleged the Russians had compromising information on now-President Trump.
McCain had denied being the source for BuzzFeed after it published the dossier, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, but had acknowledged giving it to the FBI.
“In from September, former senior counterintelligence FBI agent Bill Priestap confirmed that the FBI received a copy of the first 33 pages of the dossier in December 2016 from McCain.
