McCain’s Role In Coup Exposed In Court Docs! He Was The Mastermind Behind Trump Attack, Leaked Dossier To Media and FBI

on

ICYMI … It has been reported by Fox News that “an associate of the late Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain shared with Buzzfeed News a copy of the unverified, salacious opposition research dossier alleging that Russians had compromising material on President Trump, according to a bombshell federal court filing.”

The late Arizona Republican vehemently denied that he was the source that Buzzfeed obtained the dossier from after the news outlet published it.

The credibility of the dossier has become the topic of conversation once again as the Yahoo News investigative reporter who initially broke the news of it has stated that many of the claims in the document were “likely false,” and according to Fox News, “an adviser to ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen said Cohen never went to Prague to pay off Russian hackers, as alleged in the dossier.”

The FBI still relied heavily on the unverified dossier to obtain FISA warrant applications which allowed them to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

The FBI wrongly suggested to the court that Michael Isikoff, the Yahoo reporter who broke the story, had penned a piece which allowed an independent basis in order to spy on Carter Page… despite the fact that London court records prove that Isikoff had been using leaks from the writer of the dossier.

Earlier in the year, it was reported by Fox News that a head McCain associate, David Kramer, was briefed on the unverified dossier that was penned by British ex-spy Christopher Steele toward the end of November of 2016 in Surrey, England.

Fox News reports that “Kramer invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination to avoid testifying before House Republicans about his handling of the dossier.”

The news outlet reports:

McCain has acknowledged giving the dossier to the FBI. But, until Wednesday, it remained a mystery what role, if any, his associates might have played in the dossier leaking to the media shortly afterwards.The new revelations were contained in an opinion authored by U.S. District Judge Ursula Ungaro. The opinion granted Buzzfeed’s motion for summary judgment in a defamation action brought by a global corporation based in Luxembourg, XBT Holdings, which alleged that Buzzfeed had recklessly spread misinformation in the dossier about XBT’s purported involvement in cyberwarfare against Democratic Party officials.

Ungaro cleared Buzzfeed of liability for defamation on the basis of the “fair report privilege,” which broadly protects media outlets from defamation actions when they publish official reports, as long as they clearly indicate that the reporting is not their own. The statements about Kramer and McCain’s activities were contained in Buzzfeed’s unsealed motion for summary judgment, which Ungaro cited extensively in his ruling.

In November 2016, according to the filing, McCain sent Kramer, a director at the McCain Institute for International Leadership, to London to meet with Steele.

McCain had learned from Sir Andrew Wood, the former British Ambassador to Russia, that Steele had collected damaging information about Trump, according to the filing. Wood was an informal adviser to Orbis, which was retained by Fusion GPS, the firm behind the dossier. Fox News previously reported on Wood’s involvement.

On Nov. 28, 2016, Kramer met with Steele and later obtained copies of the dossier from Glenn Simpson, the head of Fusion GPS, the filing states. Kramer then met with Buzzfeed reporter Ken Bensinger on Dec. 29, 2016 at the McCain Institute.

There, “Kramer reviewed with Bensinger what he knew about the dossier and explained that he took the allegations seriously.” Then, Kramer showed Bensinger the dossier and purportedly informed him that “some of the information was unverified.”

McCain, the 'songbird of Hanoi" was a coward & fool. He graduated next to last in a class of over 800 from the Naval Academy & would have washed out of the Academy if his father hadn't been an Admiral. He was also very instrumental in the Lincoln Savings fiasco that cost thousands of Arizona seniors their life savings.

John McCain was NOT the “Mastermind” behind this - it was Hillary Clinton.

Yet not one word about Hillary Clinton’s having paid Fusion GPS for that Christopher Steele “dossier”. She knew it was phony from the beginning. John “War Hero” McCain was recruited to give the cover story plausibility knowing his hatred for Donald J Trump. McCain was a willing conspirator who had his aid fly to London to get a copy of that pernicious “dossier” and then hand carried it to FBI Director James Comey. Comey, also a hater of Trump, played his part to falsely implicate Trump in this scandal. Not one of these conspirators was arrested let alone jailed for their part. Or lying to the corrupt FISA Court which played its part in this conspiracy, aided by a corrupt, compromised Chief Justice John Roberts.

I can't think of him as a hero, when you deliberately do everything you can to commit treason. He wasn't the only one which shows how protective the politicians are of their power and control of monies.

If true, GOP should censure McCain (posthumously) and aggressively prosecute any other traitors to further separate the anti-Trump and anti-American RINOs from the party mainstream. They lead to disasters like Biden...

McCain really was a piece of crap. His navy record questionable, dumping his first wife for a heiress, ignoring his kids from Carol and being one of the biggest back stabbing rinos in the senate. The only good thing he did was bring Sarah Palin to the attention of the national media. She would have made a great VP.

Although I’ve been an enthusiastic Trump supporter all along, what must be his most astonishingly stupid, off-putting public statement was when he described McCain as a “loser” because he had been captured and held as a prisoner in Viet Nam - a statement with which almost every American would disagree. Now we find out that Trump’s reckless disrespect of McCain had catastrophic repercussions, seriously damaging his presidency and undermining his record and his future prospects.
