John McCain is in big trouble.
He’s up to his eyeballs in a scandal for colluding to betray Donald Trump.
Now this lawsuit could be the end of his career.
McCain has emerged as a key player in the growing scandal surrounding collusion between the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Russians to take down Donald Trump.
It was McCain who sent an advisor to London to personally pick up a copy of the fake news Christopher Steele “Trump-Russia” dossier.
McCain then passed the document along to former FBI Director James Comey who included it in a briefing to then President-elect Donald Trump.
Now one of the Russians named in the dossier is suing Buzzfeed – who published the document – for defamation.
And McCain’s aide is ducking a subpoena that would force him to spill the beans about what the Senator knew and when he knew it.
The Daily Caller reports:
“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, a former State Department official and McCain associate, “has been seemingly avoiding service” of a deposition subpoena for weeks…
… 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.”
Journalists are trying to pin down exactly when McCain found out the fake news dossier was paid for by the Clintons and when Christopher Steele – the former British intelligence agent who put it together – used the Clinton money to buy off Russian sources to plant false information about Trump in the document.
If McCain knew this, then he colluded with the Clintons and a foreign power to smear his party’s nominee for President.
Critics argue this is an outrageous offense that cannot be allowed to stand.
They argue McCain should pay for his act of treachery by resigning from the Senate so the voters of Arizona can be represented by someone loyal to them.
