John McCain Associate Had Contact With A Dozen Reporters Regarding Steele Dossier [+ Transcript]
The Daily Caller ^ | March 14, 2019 | Chuck Ross

Posted on 03/14/2019 5:18:58 PM PDT by Cboldt

David Kramer, a former State Department official, said in a deposition on Dec. 13, 2017 that he provided a copy of Christopher Steele's dossier to reporters from McClatchy, NPR, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and BuzzFeed and to CNN's Carl Bernstein.

He also shared the report with State Department official Victoria Nuland, Obama National Security Counsel official Celeste Wallander and Illinois GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger. ...

Kramer said he also met Mother Jones's David Corn, The Guardian's Julian Borger, and Washington Post reporters Tom Hamburger and Rosalind Helderman. Kramer also said that ABC News's Brian Ross showed him a copy of some of Steele's memos.

Kramer's contact at McClatchy was Peter Stone, a reporter who worked on two debunked stories about former Trump attorney Michael Cohen that are based on allegations from Steele's dossier.

Kramer said that two of the reporters, Corn and Borger, appeared to have inside knowledge about McCain's plans to meet with Comey regarding the dossier.

McCain always acted like he was owed the presidency. He was really pissed when W got the nomination and it appears he went full retard when Trump won on his first try.

I felt absolutely nothing when McCain died. While the MSM, congress, liberals were venerating McCain, I just couldn’t help but feel anger for his role in subverting our elections.

You mean Michelle Malkin(not O) was right? How does this address of our better nature not to speak ill of the dead. Truth Trump’s it more ways than one?

I remember when McCain crowed about bringing the dossier to the FIB.

After they already had it.

I pray that this traitor, who claims to be American, is severely punished after a long trial which will reveal so much.

You felt nothing when McCain died? I felt a lot. I doubt, though, that they were the kind of feelings his family would approve of.

We need to dig up that Quisling bastard and bury him in a rice paddy in Nam!

McCain was a traitor at worst, a useful idiot at best.

And now, Meghan McCain will think you’re a horrible person for posting this. We should all be so lucky. :-D

The thing that really pisses me off about McCain is that he replaced Goldwater. Barry was a real deal patriot where McCain was a Quisling loser.

Should we really go there? Is it a good way to deal with future RINO’S?

I apologize to anyone I ever told to lighten up on McCain. What his operatives have done to this President, and political discourse in this country, is unforgivable.

I was going to no-vote when he was running for pres ... my daughter persuaded me to vote “for Palin.”

I’ll never vote like that again. I find the assertion of power by the feds to be akin to the assertion of power by the Mafia. Lacking in moral legitimacy.

No name was a fraud. He was a disaster as a Naval Aviator, he was a lying, conniving crooked Politician going back to the Keating 5 scandal where he fed stories to the press to make his fellow crooks look worse then him for favored press once the case became public.

It it hadn’t been for his Father’s position he would have ended up on a street corner begging for food.

-- He's dead, good. --

We're all slave to being human, but that trite policy to speak no ill of the dead is BS. Examples of (historical) really bad people abound, and are trivial to cite.

McCain was fundamentally dishonest.
