Skip to comments.John McCain Won’t Say Whether He Knew He Was Handing Clinton-Funded Russia Dossier to FBI
Posted on 10/26/2017 6:42:45 AM PDT by Enlightened1
In December, it was McCain who notoriously passed the controversial dossier documents produced by the Washington opposition research firm Fusion GPS to then FBI Director James Comey, whose agency reportedly utilized the dossier as some of the basis for its probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
McCain’s office did not immediately respond to Breitbart News phone and email requests for comment about whether the Arizona senator was aware that the research he passed to the FBI was paid for by the DNC and Clinton’s campaign.
McCain’s office also did not immediately respond to a request for information on how he first obtained the dossier.
The Washington Post on Tuesday reported that in April 2016, attorney Marc E. Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained Fusion GPS to conduct the questionable research on behalf of both the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Through Perkins Coie, Clinton’s campaign and the DNC continued to fund Fusion GPS until October 2016, days before Election Day, the Post reported.
Fusion GPS went on to hire former intelligence agent Christopher Steele to do the purported research. Steele later conceded in court documents that part of his work still needed to be verified.
On January 10, CNN was first to report, based on leaked information, that the contents of the dossier were presented during classified briefings one week earlier to then-President Obama and President-elect Trump.

What did John McCain know and when did he know it?
He knew it. He has been in the Clinton Crime Family pocket for years.
NOW the Brain Damaged SOB Songbird clams up.
Without McCain’s support it never would have happened. He was the bi-partison element.
“largely discredited” means what? It’s like saying more or less...in legal terms, it means nothing.
The Dementia Defense—should have seen that one coming!
Why has “Loud Mouth: Senator, John McCain suddenly gone silent?
What I’d like to know: did any discussion of this take place at that security conference in Halifax that McCain, Steele and Tim Kaine all attended the summer before the election...
McCain is up to his ears in this mess from the beginning. Now watch the scumbag run like a rat.
Heard he dispatched one of his minions to Europe to hand carry it back. I want to know how much this trip cost the U.S. taxpayers.
“Without McCains support it never would have happened. He was the bi-partison element.”
He always says he likes to reach across the aisle.
John McCain......traitor to the Republican Party and perhaps to the United States. I look forward to his being out of office.
McCain and Steele were at the same conference in Halifax that August. Why would McCain have to send anyone anywhere? I’m not saying a minion wasn’t sent, just trust but verify.
“He always says he likes to reach across the aisle.”
And won’t even give us a reach around.
Yeah. He won’t say which means, he knew.
You win the internet!
