New Evidence Shows McCain Helped Fund FBI Plot to Frame Trump; Backed Bogus Russian Trump Dossier
( True Pundit ) New evidence from court documents and intelligence sources combine to show the unthinkable: U.S. Senator John McCain colluded with the FBI and possibly the DNC to sandbag President Donald Trump, before and after the 2016 election.
And McCain is from the same political party as President Trump. Allegedly.
But now court documents and new source Intel raise suspicions that McCain may have chipped in financially with the FBI or privately funded the counterfeit research, either himself or through his shady foundation.
Regardless, the research firm of former spooks — Fusion GPS who commissioned the problematic report — could have been paid for the same report by the multiple entities:
The FBI, through a black-budget fund as reported by True Pundit
John McCain campaign coffers and connections
McCain’s foundation: Arizona State University’s McCain Institute for International Leadership
Hillary Clinton-backed campaign operatives who paid $1 million for the research
TRUMP: “People have to be careful because at some point, I fight back. I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very, nice, but at some point, I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”
President Donald Trump responded on Tuesday to criticism from former failed presidential candidate evolving into a fake Republican Sen. John McCain, warning that he might be prepared to go to war with the ailing senator.
Trump’s remarks, given in an interview with WMAL’s Chris Plante, were in response to the speech McCain delivered at the National Constitution Center Liberty Medal ceremony in Philadelphia.
“People have to be careful because at some point, I fight back,” Trump said. “I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very, nice, but at some point, I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”
McCain alluded to Trump’s foreign policy as “half-baked, spurious nationalism” and said it was “unpatriotic.”
Obama: ‘I’m grateful to @SenJohnMcCain for his lifetime of service to our country. Congratulations, John, on receiving this year’s Liberty Medal.’
Closet Democrat Senator John McCain (R-AZ) anti-nationalism Liberty Medal speech:
“To fear the world we’ve organized and led for 3/4s of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain the last, best hope of earth, for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism, cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is an unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”
For his speech, Obama congratulated his comrade from across the aisle.
I’m grateful to @SenJohnMcCain for his lifetime of service to our country. Congratulations, John, on receiving this year’s Liberty Medal.
I'm grateful to @SenJohnMcCain for his lifetime of service to our country. Congratulations, John, on receiving this year's Liberty Medal.
Senate John McCain announced Friday he cannot ‘in good conscience’ vote for the latest Obamacare repeal bill, delivering a critical blow to the latest Republican effort.
‘I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal,’ McCain said in a statement, making himself the second Republican to come out against it.
‘I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried. Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will effect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it,’ McCain said.
McCain delivered the body blow to a previous ‘skinny’ Obamcare repeal bill, returning from Arizona after a brain cancer diagnosis and procedure to vote against it. Then, as on Friday, he brought up the process that was rushing the measure to the Senate floor, this time without a Congressional Budget Office Score.
The dossier was part of the evidence the FBI used to obtain a FISA warrant
Mr. Steele says the ultimate responsibility lies with BuzzFeed, the liberal news website whose editor, Ben Smith, decided to post the entire 35 pages — memos from June to December — on Jan. 10 even though Mr. Smith said he doubted the far-flung accusations were true.
Mr. Steele and his Orbis Business Intelligence firm are facing defamation lawsuit brought by Aleksej Gubarev, chief executive of the network solutions firm XBT Holdings,
British spy behind Trump dossier ordered to give deposition in BuzzFeed suit
Christopher Steele reportedly met with the FBI on Aug. 22. The dossier was part of the evidence the FBI used to obtain a FISA warrant to monitor communications of Carter Page, a peripheral adviser in the Trump campaign.
…”We know from what Steele has said in the British lawsuit that – at Fusion’s instruction – he briefed reporters at The New York Times, the Washington Post, Yahoo News, the New Yorker, CNN and Mother Jones about the dossier,” Fray-Witzer said. “To their credit, not a one of them actually published the dossier. Only BuzzFeed did that and we think that says something about where BuzzFeed’s priorities were. This was about “clicks,” not about responsible reporting.”
In a court filing, Mr. Steele also says his accusations against the president and his aides about a supposed Russian hacking conspiracy were never supposed to be made public, much less posted in full on a website for the world to see on Jan. 10.
He defends himself by saying he was betrayed by his client and that he followed proper internal channels by giving the dossier to Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, to alert the U.S. government.
Mr. Steele has not spoken publicly about his disputed opposition research project, but for the first time he is being forced to talk in a London court through his attorneys.
Barristers for Mr. Steele and his Orbis Business Intelligence firm filed their first defense against a defamation lawsuit brought by Aleksej Gubarev, chief executive of the network solutions firm XBT Holdings.
Mr. Steele acknowledges that the part of the 35-page dossier that identified Mr. Gubarev as a rogue hacker came from “unsolicited intelligence” and “raw intelligence” that “needed to be analyzed and further investigated/verified.”
Trump: “I am pleased to inform you that I have just granted a full Pardon to 85 year old American patriot Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He kept Arizona safe!”
Joe Arpaio: “Thank you @realdonaldtrump for seeing my conviction for what it is: a political witch hunt by holdovers in the Obama justice department!”
John McCain: “The President has the authority to make this pardon, but doing so at this time undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law as Mr. Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions.”
Following Friday night’s announcement that Trump had pardoned former Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, RINO Senator John McCain issued a statement strongly rebuking both Trump’s pardon and Arpaio himself.
McCain said Trump’s action “undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law.”
In the statement, McCain also slammed his fellow Arizonian’s “lack of remorse”:
No one is above the law and the individuals entrusted with the privilege of being sworn law officers should always seek to be beyond reproach in their commitment to fairly enforcing the laws they swore to uphold.
Mr. Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt for continuing to illegally profile Latinos living in Arizona based on their perceived immigration status in violation of a judge’s orders.
The President has the authority to make this pardon, but doing so at this time undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law as Mr. Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions.
The 85-year-old former sheriff was convicted on a misdemeanor charge of criminal contempt in July for ignoring a 2011 court order to stop detaining illegal aliens. He faced a possible jail sentence of up to six months.
I am pleased to inform you that I have just granted a full Pardon to 85 year old American patriot Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He kept Arizona safe!
