Arizona Sen. John McCain hasn’t been President Trump’s biggest fan, and in January it was reported that he handed off the infamous “Russian dossier” to former FBI Director James Comey – a dossier that was later widely disproven.
McCain claims that he was simply fulfilling his duty by giving the dossier to Comey, but the fact of the matter is he was trying to undermine the duly-elected President. Now, a lawsuit seeks to find the truth in the matter, and McCain may want to retain a lawyer.
Now, two lawsuits — one in the United States and a second in the U.K. — are being brought by lawyers for Aleksej Gubarev, a Cyprus-based Internet entrepreneur whom Steele’s Russian sources accused of cyber spying against the Democratic Party leadership.
According to a new court document in the British lawsuit, counsel for defendants Steele and Orbis repeatedly point to McCain, R-Ariz., a vocal Trump critic, and a former State Department official as two in a handful of people known to have had copies of the full document before it circulated among journalists and was published by BuzzFeed.
The court document obtained by McClatchy confirms that Sir Andrew Wood, a former British ambassador to Moscow and a Russia adviser to former Prime Minister Tony Blair, discussed the 35-page dossier with McCain.
“The Defendants considered that the issues were self-evidently relevant to the national security of the US, UK and their allies,” the document says, explaining why Steele and his partner, Christopher Burrows, felt it necessary to share the dossier’s findings.
Wood had told Britain’s The Guardian in January that McCain had reached out to him about the dossier, and had obtained it through other means. The court document confirms that Wood, Steele and former State Department official David Kramer decided together that new information gathered after the election should be shared with authorities in Britain and the United States.
Finally, this RINO traitor is going to be held accountable for his intentional attempts to undermine our President. With any kind of luck, a separate lawsuit springs up and names him as the defendant, or so we can hope.
