"Russia" goes right back to John McCain
It's not Putin; It's McCain
It was the GOP-Dem Oligarchs, not Putin, who were and still are trying to overthrow the 2016 election.
(Daily Caller) - The House Intelligence Committee met Tuesday with a key figure a John McCain associate who handled the infamous anti-Trump dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.
David Kramer, a former State Department official, was interviewed by the committee Tuesday morning, The Hill reported.
Kramer has been at the center of the dossier saga since January, when BuzzFeed News published the salacious document online.
It was revealed soon after the dossier was published that McCain and Kramer were first told about the uncorroborated report in Nov. 2016 by Sir Andrew Wood, a former British ambassador to Russia who is a business associate of Steele’s.
At McCain’s request, Kramer traveled to London later that month to meet with Steele, a former MI6 officer. The pair arranged for McCain to obtain a copy of the dossier through Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that hired Steele to investigate Donald Trump’s activities in Russia.
Fusion, which is based in Washington, D.C., was working on behalf of the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee.
