A former U.S. State Department official and associate of Sen. John McCain has invoked his Fifth Amendment right not to testify in connection with questions from the House Intelligence Committee about the anti-Trump dossier’s Russian sources, according to a law enforcement source.
David J. Kramer, who is a central player in how the unverified Trump dossier made its way to the FBI in late 2016, testified before the committee in December in a closed-door session, indicating he had information about the dossier’s sources. A subpoena was issued for mid-January, as first reported by The Washington Examiner.
The law enforcement source confirmed, however, that Kramer did not appear and has exercised his right not to incriminate himself in a legal action.
David Kramer cited the Fifth Amendment when he underwent questioning about his role in the bogus Trump-Russia Dossier. Kramer, who is a central player in how the unverified document made its way into the hands of the FBI, testified before the committee in December, in a closed-door session, indicating he had information about the Dossier’s sources, meaning Mr. Kramer was briefed by the junk-Dossier’s author, former British spy Christopher Steele.
The Russian Dossier, mind you, was paid for by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton Campaign. The unverified ‘evidence’ was used in the FISA court to collect information on Trump and spy on Carter Page. We suspect that Kramer’s decision to keep quiet, despite already implicating himself, came directly from John McCain as a final F-you to President Trump.
More threads are unraveling in what may be the biggest political scandal in history: the use of intelligence agencies to spy on a rival-party presidential campaign and then unseat a duly elected president. The blowback from the Steele dossier, the multi-million-dollar operation of the Hillary campaign and the DNC, may reach all the way to Trump-haters in the GOP.
The Steele dossier scandal’s tentacles are reaching all the way to Trumpophobic John McCain, via a close associate of his. The longtime aide to Senator McCain who flew to England to get a copy of the Steele dossier and speed it along to the FBI in 2016 has clammed up and asserted his right to avoid self-incrimination.
“When will American patriots learn that Sen. John McCain is neither a conservative nor a Republican. He used the same tactics he used to survive imprisonment in the Hanoi Hilton in order to survive as a liberal-left politician who is quick to criticize and denigrate members of his own political party, while kissing up to his supposed opposition party,” said former U.S. Marine and New York police lieutenant, Barry Hawkins.
Besides his willingness to advance the Deep State’s anti-Trump conspiracy, McCain is taking the lead in fighting the confirmation of President Trump’s nominee for director of the CIA, Gina Haspel, who would be the first woman to run the agency, but she allegedly has a controversial past.
