Fusion GPS Comes Clean: Admits John McCain Was Used as Secret Operative

Kirsters Baish| The infamous Fusion GPS dossier that was created by Fusion GPS in order to take down President Trump’s presidential campaign has been torn apart since it made it debt on BuzzFeed News. That hasn’t stopped the left from using the dossier as a political tool in their attempt to impeach Trump. Dianne Feinstein felt that it was a good idea this week to release the testimony of the founder of Fusion GPS.

The Hill reported that the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein. unilaterally released over 300 pages of documents pertaining to an interview that the panel conducted in August with the founder of the Fusion GPS opposition research firm which commissioned the phony Trump Russia dossier.

It was during that very interview that Fusion GPS’s co-founder Glenn Simpson stated that the author of the dossier, a former British intelligence officer named Christopher Steele, explained to him that the FBI already had “other intelligence” which supported claims made in the dossier when he met with an agent back in September.

The dossier has been a big part of the congressional investigations into possible Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Some Republicans have made the suggestion that the FBI might have used unverified information in order to launch the investigation into President Trump, which was totally baseless.

President Trump obviously wasn’t happy about this:

Our Commander in Cheif’s lawyer didn’t seem too happy either:

The dossier isn’t taking Americans by storm anymore, simply because the information in it isn’t reliable. What is interesting, however, is that the dossier found its way to the Obama administration, and how they used Hillary Clinton’s opposition research in order to spy on the Trump administration.

New information has just come out which doesn’t make Senator John McCain look very good.

Breitbart reported that the founders of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS actually came forward to admit that the researcher who was hired to create the 35-page discredited Trump dossier shared the document with Senator John McCain.

The researcher’s goal of sharing the dossier with McCain was to pass on the information which was compiled into the document to the United States intelligence community during the time that the Obama administration was still in charge. This disclosure leaves us questioning if McCain was aware that the information that he provided to the intelligence community was, in reality, an opposition document which was funded by non other than Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

When asked to comment on the issue, McCain’s office declined to respond.

WSAU reported on the matter as well, saying that if an opposition research firm is working for Hillary Clinton and approaches you, McCain should have known that Clinton was behind the document, or at least had some involvement. We cannot be sure if he was fully aware, but if he was, he definitely should not have passed it on as a credible intelligence source.

It’s no secret that John McCain isn’t the biggest fan of President Trump, and he’s been clear on that. While Trump’s comment on McCain’s time in the military was uncalled for, it doesn’t justify McCain doing something of this magnitude. And since McCain’s office has declined to comment on the matter, we will have to wait to find out if McCain was aware of the dirty details about the dossier.
