Fusion GPS admits they used John McCain to pass Russian dossier to intelligence agencies

January 10, 2018

  It has been widely reported that John McCain was the person who provided the United States intelligence agencies with the Russian dossier. Now it is being reported here that Fusion GPS admitted using John McCain to pass on the mostly discredited document. Here is more:

The founders of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted that they helped the researcher hired to compile the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump to share the document with Sen. John McCain.

The goal of providing the dossier to McCain, the Fusion GPS founders explained, was to pass the information contained in the questionable document to the U.S. intelligence community under the Obama administration.

The disclosure raises questions about whether McCain knew that the information he delivered to the intelligence community was actually an opposition document reportedly funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Writing in a New York Times oped last Tuesday, Fusion GPS founders Glenn R. Simpson and Peter Fritch relate that they helped McCain share their anti-Trump dossier with the intelligence community via an “emissary.”

“After the election, Mr. Steele decided to share his intelligence with Senator John McCain via an emissary,” the Fusion GPS founders related. “We helped him do that. The goal was to alert the United States national security community to an attack on our country by a hostile foreign power.”

It was not clear from their statement whether McCain knew Fusion GPS was behind the dossier. Fusion GPS paid former intelligence agent Christopher Steele to do the purported research for the document. Steele later conceded in court documents that part of his work still needed to be verified.

  There really isn’t much new here, we already knew John McCain is the person who provided the FBI with the dossier, but it does show us that Fusion GPS was working behind the scenes to make sure the document ended up in the FBI’s hands and it does show us John McCain was a willing dupe. And at the time Fusion GPS knew the document was not verified, the questions are; did John McCain know it was unverified? And if he did, did he care? These are relevant questions now that we know this dossier was opposition research funded by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.

    McCain remains true to form. A lowlife cockroach, without integrity, morality, or honor. One of the Keating Eight scandal, he has only gone downhill. Betraying America in Hanoi, betraying his wife, then betraying POWs.

    When McCain goes to the pearly gates I’d give anything to see the vete4rans there toss him into the ninth ring.

    Maybe we would get some answers because Rep. Ron DeSantis has sent a letter to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan requesting him to declassify all of the Department of Justice and FBI’s Trump dossier files. Apparently Ryan has the ability to tell Rep Nunes to release all the files he has.

    A dupe for sure. A dope, probably. But ultimately, a sore looser willing to harm the Presidency for personal reasons.

    Now that would be sweet to see him hang for this…. but he won’t be….they will all rally round the flag as he lays in state in the Capitol rotunda by the same super service men he sold out in Hanoi.
