After all this time actively working for the opposition to usurp the will of the American people, Trump Supporters should be screaming their lungs out, demanding John McCain is impeached.
McCain said he did ‘what any citizen would do’ in turning over the dirty dossier, which contained unconfirmed secrets about the president-elect, over to the FBI.
Christopher Steele, a director of London-based Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd and a former British intelligence officer has been identified as the author of the dossier of unverified allegations about President-elect Donald Trump’s activities and connections in Russia.
Steele reportedly found the information that he dug up to be concerning, so over the summer he delivered the intelligence he had gathered from his Russian sources, living within the country and also in the west, to former colleagues in the FBI.
He also delivered the documents to his country’s own intelligence service. As fall approached, and he heard nothing about any FBI investigation into the documents, he was persuaded to tell journalist David Corn, of Mother Jones, of their existence.
The veteran reporter wrote about the dossier on October 31. It wasn’t until mid-November, and after the presidential election, that the dossier made its more public way to Washington.
On November 18, at the Halifax International Security Forum, McCain was introduced to a ‘former senior western diplomat’ who had set eyes on the documents and knew who put them together, telling the Arizona Republican that the individual was ‘highly reliable.’ That man was Sir Andrew Wood, British ambassador to Moscow from 1995 to 2000, reports Truth Feed.
Wood said that he had met McCain, spoken to him about Trump, and about the potential for him to be compromised. In a carefully nuanced statement he said: ‘Yes I did meet Senator McCain and his aides at the conference. We spoke about the kind of activities the Russians can be engaged in.’
‘We also spoke about how Mr Trump may find himself in a position where there could be an attempt to blackmail him with Kompromat [a Russian term for compromising material] and claims that there were audio and video tapes in existence.’
Wood denies passing on any dossier to McCain, but did not address whether he told McCain there was a dossier – and how to get it. Clearly, somebody did.
