Newly Released Court Filings Reveal Just How McCain Used Dossier Against Trump, And It’s Disturbing

There are new court filings that show how deep the late Sen. John McCain was involved in pushing the discredited dossier that began the Russia investigation.
This court filing shows that Sen. McCain and an aide not only shared the dossier with the FBI but also gave the dossier to a variety of media companies.
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 a newly unsealed declaration 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.

In another filing, David Kramer — a former State Department official and McCain associate — said in a Dec. 13, 2017, deposition that the dossier was given to him by author and former British spy Christopher Steele, which he then provided to more than a dozen journalists at outlets including CNN, BuzzFeed and The Washington Post. The details were first reported by The Daily Caller.
The report was also shared with State Department official Victoria Nuland, Obama National Security Council official Celeste Wallander and Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill.
The filings were unsealed as part of an ongoing libel case against BuzzFeed by a Russian businessman.

In his deposition, Kramer said that McCain gave a copy of the dossier to then-FBI Director James Comey on Dec. 9. Kramer told investigators that it was the sense from Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson that “having Senator McCain provide it to the FBI would give it a little more oomph than it had had up until that point.”

“I think they felt a senior Republican was better to be the recipient of this rather than a Democrat because if it were a Democrat, I think that the view was that it would have been dismissed as a political attack,” Simpson said.

I encountered McCain and his wife at the Houston airport ... I was waiting to board and he was being escorted off his plane and into the waiting room.   What a jerk!    People tried to talk to him, shake his hand, and he dismissed them all with a flip of his hand and toss of his head.   His wife tried to be friendly, but she was jerked along.

McCain was the head of the Swamp Republicans, also known as RINOs. These people are no better than the Democrats IMO.
