Some folks just can’t let go and fade into obscurity. No, I’m not speaking of the former
President, but of one of his “Republican” “challengers.” I use quotes as both descriptors are questionable in terms of their veracity as applied to McLame.
Republican[RINO] John McCain – who has been anti-Trump since day 1 – appears to be in deep trouble for his involvement in the fake Russian dossier that sought to smear President Trump.
Sen. John McCain faces questions in a defamation lawsuit about leaks leading to publication of the now-infamous dossier that alleged Donald Trump’s campaign had connections to Russian operatives, McClatchy has learned.
The dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele and his London firm, Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd., amounted to a collection of uncorroborated reports of collusion gathered as political research for sale to Trump’s opponents. It proved explosive when published by online news site BuzzFeed on Jan. 10.
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.
At the grave risk of repeating myself, thank you for your service Mr. McCain. Start enjoying your retirement from public life soon.
