An associate of late Arizona Sen. John McCain described in detail his contacts with a dozen journalists and several government officials regarding the infamous Steele dossier, according to a transcript of a court deposition unsealed Thursday.

David Kramer, a former State Department official, said in a deposition on Dec. 13, 2017 that he provided a copy of Christopher Steele’s dossier to reporters from McClatchy, NPR, The Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, BuzzFeed,and to CNN’s Carl Bernstein.

quote:

He also shared the report with State Department official Victoria Nuland, Obama National Security Counsel official Celeste Wallander and Illinois GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger.

quote:

In the deposition, Kramer suggests that Steele and Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson sought to use him and McCain as conduits to pass the dossier to the FBI. Sir Andrew Wood, a former British diplomat, first briefed Kramer and McCain in November 2016 on the dossier, authored by Steele.

Kramer flew to London on Nov. 29, 2016 to meet with Steele. The next day, in the U.S., he obtained a copy of the dossier from Simpson. On Dec. 9, 2016, McCain briefed then-FBI Director James Comey on the salacious report.

quote:

Kramer said Steele asked him to meet with CNN’s Bernstein and BuzzFeed’s Ken Bensinger. BuzzFeed published the dossier on Jan. 10, 2017.

The website made the controversial decision hours after CNN, in a story co-authored by Bernstein, reported that then-President-elect Donald Trump had been briefed on the salacious allegations in the dossier on Jan. 6, 2017.

quote:

Kramer’s contact at McClatchy was Peter Stone, a reporter who worked on two debunked stories about former Trump attorney Michael Cohen that are based on allegations from Steele’s dossier.

Kramer said that two of the reporters, Corn and Borger, appeared to have inside knowledge about McCain’s plans to meet with Comey regarding the dossier.

quote:

I said to him what I had said to the others, which is I’m not in a position to verify or refute this, but that it seemed to me to be serious enough to be looked at in a professional way, and that professional journalists were arguably in a position to look into the matter,” said Kramer. “And I stressed to him the sensitivity of it; that it had to be handled very carefully. And he agreed.”

quote:

Kramer also said that he spoke to Steele hours after BuzzFeed published the dossier and that the former spy was “shocked.” The longtime McCain associate also said that he lied to Steele about providing the dossier to Bensinger.

I would say it's probable at this point. If true, a lot of people are in BIG trouble

Now it's confirmed. Personally I didn't know Steele and Simpson wanted to use Kramer and McCain to pass the dossier to the FBI.

Also, Simpson and Steele wanted to use them because of the appearance of "political bias," which shows their intent and the nature of the information

Well..Kramer’s former boss was executed and Kramer was somewhat of a co-conspirator in this fiasco,so... yeah, he is in need of something more than a public defender.

What a simplistic view they had. McCain was not favored by real trump people.

re: David Kramer deposition released
Good God.

Comey, Rod, Yates, etc are so fricked.

quote:

Q.· When did you first speak to Mr. Steele after the publication of The Memos?

A.· Within an hour after they were published.

Q.· And what did Mr. Steele say to you?

A.· He was shocked.

Q.· Do you recall his precise words?

A.· Not exactly no.

Q.· Do you recall what you said to him?

A.· Yeah, he said this wasn't supposed to happen this way. I said the same thing to Mr. Simpson, which was that this was only supposed to have been released or posted and published if it had been verified


So the dossier wasn't verified all the up until it was published by Buzzfeed in JANUARY 2017! We already knew this, but FFS this is Steele AND Simpson saying it was BS and were shocked they released it that early!

But it falls in line with everything else

This is the Obama Clinton playbook handed to Fusion GPS.
1. write the script, identify the players
2. Create a cyclical loop where we feed each other the same fake info, but use each other as validation to its veracity
3. Feed seemingly non-connected entities the fake info at the same time with explicit direction to ensure it falls in the hands of the FBI.

re: David Kramer deposition released
Can someone dumb this down for me.

1. What is the big deal if McCain's bitch boi handed the dossier to the FBI?

2. Didn't the FBI already have the dossier? They used it in obtaining the FISA warrant, right?

3. Were any laws broken by McCain's bitch boi handing the dossier to the press?


This all seems like one big clusterfrick, I am just trying to understand the 2-3 sentence explanation of why this is bad.

John McCain could have used his privilege and power for some good in this world, yet his legacy should have him burn in hell.
