John McCain doesn’t seem like the type of person that anyone in their right mind would want to spend two hours at a coffee shop at. I’ll explain.
Given everything we know about John McCain, he seems like the type of person that would tell the owner of the shop that you grabbed four sugar packets on your way out the door to hold you over until you went to the grocery store just so he could get free coffee for a week.
Despite having the face of a Republican, his true visage is that of a conniving schemer who will take the side of who benefits him the most.
David J. Kramer was in hot water before for the same reason the Intel Committee is now issuing a subpoena: He was previously subpoenaed by the lawyers for a Russian tech executive suing BuzzFeed. The guy just refuses to give out any information on sources for the “dirty” dossier. This raises the question of if there were sources that were fictional and were used just to build a fake case against Trump.
President Trump just tweeted out that the dossier is a “pile of garbage”. Could it be that this “pile of garbage” was used to make the case for a FISA warrant to spy on POTUS The plot thickens on this one…
The Daily Caller reports: The House Intelligence Committee has issued a subpoena for an associate of Arizona Sen. John McCain’s who revealed last week that he knows the names of the Russian sources used in former British spy Christopher Steele’s infamous dossier.
A congressional source tells The Daily Caller that California Rep. Devin Nunes issued the subpoena on Wednesday for David J. Kramer, a former State Department official.
Kramer refused to divulge the names of Steele’s sources during a Dec. 19 interview with the panel, the source says.
Steele used Russian sources to gather information on the Trump campaign and Donald Trump’s activities in Russia. The ex-spy was working for Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that was on the payroll of the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee.
Lawyers for a Russian tech executive suing BuzzFeed for publishing the Steele dossier say that a longtime associate of Arizona Sen. John McCain and two major news outlets are resisting subpoenas seeking their depositions for the case.
In a brief filed in federal court late Wednesday, lawyers for the executive, Aleksej Gubarev, claim that David Kramer (pictured below), a former State Department official and McCain associate, “has been seemingly avoiding service” of a deposition subpoena for weeks.
Please see the very curious input Reason.com put out just this July regarding Kramer’s involvement in the Steele dossier getting into the hands of the press.
And The New York Times and Wall Street Journal are challenging deposition subpoenas they have been served as part of the case.
Gubarev’s lawyers are attempting to find out who gave BuzzFeed the salacious dossier, which the website published to much controversy on Jan. 10.
The dossier, written by former British spy Christopher Steele, alleges that Gubarev and his companies, XBT Holdings and Webzilla, used spam, viruses and porn bots to hack into DNC computer systems. Gubarev vehemently denies the allegations.
Gubarev’s attorneys say that identifying BuzzFeed’s source could shed light on whether the news outlet was warned that information in the dossier could be false. They argue that publishing the dossier despite such warnings would show “reckless disregard for the truth or falsity of the information published.”
