John McCain’s role in the Russia investigation has largely flown under the radar.
He participated in one of the great betrayals of Donald Trump.
But now everyone is asking questions about one big mystery.
It was reported that McCain sent a trusted advisor to London to meet with Christopher Steele and obtain a copy of the dossier.
McCain then handed the document to FBI Director James Comey.
Breitbart’s Aaron Klein asks why this was necessary.
Comey – after all – already had the dossier and used it as the basis to obtain a FISA warrant against Carter Page.
“Comey also utilized the dossier, according to the memo, even though senior FBI officials were aware at the time that the document, authored by ex-British spy Christopher Steele, was produced by the controversial Fusion GPS firm and was funded by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) via the Perkins Coie law firm.
The questions about McCain’s involvement follow an admission last month by the founders of Fusion GPS that they helped Steele share the document with the Arizona senator utilizing a surrogate after the November 2016 presidential election. McCain in turn reportedly provided the dossier to the FBI in December 2016.
The timeline revealed in the memo shows that by the time McCain delivered the dossier to the FBI leadership in December 2016, the agency had not only already launched an investigation into Trump’s campaign partially utilizing the dossier but Comey himself had two months earlier signed an application using the dossier to obtain a FISA warrant on Page.
It is therefore not clear why Fusion GPS would seek out McCain to deliver to the FBI a document already being utilized by the agency to launch a probe into Trump’s campaign and obtain a FISA warrant after Steele himself provided the dossier to the FBI in July 2016.”
So why did Fusion GPS use McCain?
Did they now know the FBI utilized the dossier?
Did they think laundering the information through McCain would make the FBI not think the document was partisan opposition research?
These are questions that all demand an answer.
