MCCAIN WANTED DIRT ON TRUMP FROM FOREIGN SPY…

Shortly after the election,John McCain (right) was attending a conference in Canada and spoke with a ‘former senior western diplomat’ who knew of the dossier’s existence. That man was Sir Andrew Wood. He issued a nuanced explanation of his dealings with McCain: ‘I would like to stress that I did not pass on any dossier to Senator McCain or anyone else and I did not see a dossier at the time.’ He did not deny alerting McCain to its existence

By NIKKI SCHWAB, U.S. POLITICAL REPORTER

Sen. John McCain said he did ‘what any citizen would do’ in turning over the dirty dossier, which contained unconfirmed secrets about the president-elect, over to the FBI.

The Guardian charted the path of how the dossier came to be and how it was that McCain got his hands on the controversial documents.

The story of the dossier began with an investigative firm in Washington, D.C., being tapped by one of Trump‘s primary allies to dig up some opposition research on the Republican hopeful.

Aide: Sir ANdrew Wood was Tony Blair’s ambassador to Moscow until 2000 

In turn, that firm outsourced the research to a ‘retired western European former counter-intelligence official, with a long history of dealing with the shadow world of Moscow’s spooks and siloviki (securocrats),’ explained the Guardian.

Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal identified the ex-spy as Christopher Steele.

By the time the contractor had started digging, Trump’s primary opponent had dropped out. But the firm found a Democrat who wanted dirt on the now Republican nominee instead.

The Guardian pointed out that just because a Democrat was willing to pay for the information that didn’t mean that said Democrat was Hillary Clinton‘s campaign or the Democratic National Committee.

Sometimes donors seek out this information in order to ensure they’ve made a sound investment.

The contractor, who the Guardian didn’t name, but the Wall Street Journal identified as Steele, reportedly found the information that he dug up to be concerning. He and another ex-British diplomat, Christopher Burrows, run their own company, Orbis Business Intelligence.

‘If the allegations were real, their implications were overwhelming,’ the Guardian wrote.

So over the summer he delivered the intelligence he had gathered from his Russian sources, living within the country and also in the west, to former colleagues in the FBI.

The Guardian suggested he also delivered the documents to his country’s own intelligence service.

As fall approached, and he heard nothing about any FBI investigation into the documents, he was persuaded to tell journalist David Corn, of Mother Jones, of their existence.

The veteran reporter wrote about the dossier on October 31.

The intelligence agent, the Guardian reported, was worried about an FBI cover-up, as the bureau seemed to be spending most of its time and energy on an investigation into Hillary Clinton‘s private email server.

It wasn’t until mid-November, and after the presidential election, that the chips fell in place for the dossier to make its more public way to Washington.

London headquarters: This is the prestigious London headquarters of the intelligence firm run by an ex-spy who authored the discredited dirty dossier on Trump

On November 18, at the Halifax International Security Forum, McCain was introduced to a ‘former senior western diplomat’ who had set eyes on the documents and knew who put them together, telling the Arizona Republican that the individual was ‘highly reliable.’ 

That man can now be named as Sir Andrew Wood, British ambassador to Moscow from 1995 to 2000.

Wood told the Independent that he had met McCain, spoken to him about Trump, and about the potential for him to be compromised.

In a carefully nuanced statement he said: ‘Yes I did meet Senator McCain and his aides at the conference.

‘We spoke about the kind of activities the Russians can be engaged in.

‘We also spoke about how Mr Trump may find himself in a position where there could be an attempt to blackmail him with Kompromat [a Russian term for compromising material] and claims that there were audio and video tapes in existence.’

He added: ‘I would like to stress that I did not pass on any dossier to Senator McCain or anyone else and I did not see a dossier at the time. I do know Christopher Steele and in my view he is very professional and thorough in what he does.’

He did not however address whether he told McCain there was a dossier – and how to get it.

Clearly, somebody did.

 
Ultimate recipient: The FBI Director James Comey was handed the document by McCain after its extraordinary transatlantic journey

Dossier of unverifiable sleaze 

Lurid sex claims

The report states that in 2013 Trump hired prostitutes to urinate on the bed of the Presidential Suite at the Moscow Ritz Carlton, where he knew Barack and Michelle Obama had previously stayed.

It says: ‘Trump’s unorthodox behavior in Russia over the years had provided the authorities there with enough embarrassing material on the now Republican presidential candidate to be able to blackmail him if they so wished.’

Trump ridiculed the idea, pointing out that Russian hotel rooms are known to be rigged with cameras and describing himself as a ‘germophobe’.

Property ‘sweeteners’

The document states that Trump had declined ‘sweetener’ real estate deals in Russia that the Kremlin lined up in order to cultivate him.

The business proposals were said to be ‘in relation to the ongoing 2018 World Cup soccer tournament’.

Russia ‘cultivated’ Trump for five years

The dossier claimed that the Russian regime had been ‘cultivating, supporting and assisting Trump for at least five years’.

According to the document, one source even claimed that ‘the Trump operation was both supported and directed by Russian President Vladimir Putin‘ with the aim being to ‘sow discord’. 

A dossier on Hillary Clinton

At one point the memo suggests Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov ‘controlled’ another dossier containing compromising material on Hillary Clinton compiled over ‘many years’.

Elsewhere in the document, it is claimed that Putin was ‘motivated by fear and hatred of Hillary Clinton.’

Peskov poured scorn on the claims today and said they were ‘pulp fiction’.

Clandestine meetings

At one point the memo says there were reports of ‘clandestine meetings’ between Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen and Kremlin representatives in August last year in Prague.

However, Trump’s counsel Michael Cohen today spoke out against allegations that he secretly met with Kremlin officials – saying that he had never been to Prague.

It has now emerged that the dossier was referring to a different person of the same name.

From there, McCain dispatched a ‘trusted emissary’ who flew across the Atlantic to meet the source of the documents at an airport that the Guardian did not name.

The aide was instructed to look for a man with a copy of the Financial Times  and that’s how the individuals met, with the source taking McCain’s emissary back to his house and giving the American a copy of the documents.

Within 24 hours, the dossier was in Washington, though the contents of the file couldn’t be verified without an investigation.

McCain, the Guardian said, was worried that his actions might be interpreted as revenge for some of the controversial comments Trump made about him – such as knocking the fact that the longtime senator had been a prisoner of war.

However, McCain decided to hand over the documents to FBI Director James Comey on December 9.

 ‘Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI,’ McCain said Wednesday in a statement about that matter.

‘That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue,’ McCain said.

BACKGROUND: WHO IS SIR ANDREW WOOD?

Sir Andrew Wood’s five years as British Ambassador to Russia coincided with the arrival of Vladimir Putin first as FSB security service chief then premier, and finally acting president.

He was in charge of the UK embassy across the Moscow River from the Kremlin during some of the most momentous and fraught times in post-Soviet Russia.

He saw the decline of the ailing vodka-soaked rule of Boris Yeltsin and the rise of ex-spy Putin, and was among the first to publicly question his second bloody war in Chechnya, an early sign of the new leader’s ruthlessness.

He also choreographed Tony Blair‘s first visit to Moscow as prime minister, briefly losing touch with the new British prime minister in the crowds on on the Moscow metro.

Known for being understated and cool under fire in his dealings with the Russians, and famed for his discretion,

Sir Andrew, now 77, represented Britain at the funeral of former Soviet first lady Raisa Gorbachev in 1999, seeing her sobbing husband Mikahil Gorbachev lean over her open coffin to give her one final hug.

A year earlier he represented Britain at the burial of the remains of the murdered last tsar Nicholas II and immediate members of his family, which had been dug from a mineshaft in a Urals forest. He witnessed Yeltsin bow his head and denounce the ‘monstrous crime’ of killing the last tsar – ‘one of the most shameful pages in our history’.

He faced several espionage scandals during his tenure from 1995 to 2000.

A Russian diplomat was caught red handed by FSB counter-intelligence officers using high-tech communications equipment to pass secrets to British ‘spies’ in Moscow.

The Russians claimed no less than nine members of Sir Andrew’s diplomatic team were involved in walking past the double agent with receiver devices to pick up coded messages he transmitted.

A furious Moscow initially demanded nine expulsions from the embassy, but in lengthy negotiations by the ambassador it was reduced to four. Britain in a tit for tat move threw out four Russians.

Sir Andrew also had to deal with the gruesome beheading of three Britons and a New Zealander in Chechnya, accused of being spies, and forced to make a confession, saying on camera: ‘We have been recruited by the English intelligence service.’

The ambassador protested: ‘It’s totally absurd, everyone knows, especially in Russia, how these confessions can be obtained. Why would our special services be in Chechnya? It’s not rational,’

Darren Hickey, Peter Kennedy and Rudi Petschi and Stan Shaw were installing a satellite communications system for British company Granger Telecom in Chechnya when they fell victim to the spate of kidnappings.

Earlier he worked with controversial tycoon Boris Berezovsky – who would in 2013 die in Britain in unexplained circumstances – to free aid workers Camilla Carr and Jon James, taken hostage by bandits in Chechnya, denying claims that a ransom was paid to terrorists to secure their freedom.

He was aware of the risk of sexual entrapment in Moscow.

In 1997 when then Home Secretary Michael (Lord) Howard – later to be Tory Party leader – visited Moscow, the ambassador expressed alarm at his sudden decision to go out in the evening unchaperoned by diplomats in a Lada car to visit a newly-opened Irish pub in the company of a British journalist.

Sir Andrew was also caught in a row over an expensive £11 million refurbishment of the then British embassy, converting it into solely the palatial residence for the ambassador, with Chancellor Gordon Brown complaining about the lavish lifestyle of diplomats.

Sir Andrew’s led trade missions to distant regions of the country – including parts of Siberia – but he also saw the 1998 rouble crash when cowboy capitalist Russia, having rejected communism, witnessing millions lose their life’s savings amid rampant inflation.

During Blair’s walkabout in Moscow, the bald mayor Yuri Luzhkov sought to muscle in on event to the evidence annoyance of press secretary Alastair Campbell who barked at Sir Andrew: ‘Break a line and cut him off. We’re off.’

Despite this uninspiring start with the new premier, Sir Andrew later worked for Blair as an advisor on Russian investment. He also witnessed the 1996 election when Reds-to-Riches tycoons intervened to prop up a visible sick Yeltsin by bankrolling his campaign in return for ownership of Russia’s most prized industrial assets.

This stopped the Communists retaking power but it was the start of the oligarch era in Russia. After retiring from the diplomat service, Sir Andrew developed business interests linked to Russia.

He became caught in controversy over Labour premier Blair’s role in helping rescue a controversial £4.2 million BP deal in Russia. Earlier Sir Andrew served as ambassador to Belgrade, and in 1989 was appointed number two at the British embassy in Washington – when he is likely to have come across John McCain.

In recent years, he has been a regular at conferences in the West about Russia. He has also expressed concern at the direction of Russia under Putin. Last month he was scathing in dismissing as nonsense Russian claims to have had nothing to do with hacking the US election.

‘Russia always denies bad news,’ he said on Sky News. The Putin regime ‘has a strong record… of this sort of behaviour’.

How do you think Muslims reacted to news of the UK’s “first gay Muslim marriage”.

With peace and tolerance?

DEEP STATE DOUBLE AGENT: Russian Lawyer was a Plant by Hillary and Obama!

Published on Jul 12, 2017

In yesterday’s first video I said “I bet you anything this Lawyer is a double agent.” Remember? Just watch the video before this one to see I was right. Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian Lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. was a plant. She is part of the deep state and was even invited a few days after meeting with Don Jr by Barack Obama to attend a Congressional hearing on Russian policy. She also has TONS of Anti Trump images ALL OVER her Facebook page. Don’t believe the lying filth in the lame stream media. This was no pro Trump anti Hillary person. This was a Russian Spy set up by Hillary and Obama to take down candidate Trump at the time.

SECRET SERVICE LOOKING INTO DEM LAWMAKER’S THREAT TO MAKE TRUMP “HALF TERM PRESIDENT”

Republicans demand Hamann’s resignation over “implied death threat”

 | Infowars.com – JULY 13, 2017

The Secret Service is looking into what some are calling a death threat made by Democratic lawmaker Scott Hamann, who vowed to make Trump a “half term president” if he ever got “within 10 feet” of him.

Hamann posted a crazed Facebook rant in which he declared, “Trump is a half term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that pussy.

Hamann, who represents a district in South Portland, went on to accuse Trump of being “anti-American,” and an “admitted rapist” who was “installed by the Russians.”

Screen Shot 2017-07-13 at 9.58.54 AM

Dave Watson, the resident agent in charge of the U.S. Secret Service field office in Portland, told the Press Herald that his office was receiving calls from the public about Hamann’s Facebook post.

“We are looking into it, but as to whether an investigation has been opened, I can’t comment on that,” Watson said. “But we have been getting messages.”

After a huge backlash, Hamann offered half-hearted apology, stating, “I regret my impulsive decision to post something aggressively sarcastic and inappropriate in a Facebook exchange with a childhood friend.”

Furious Republicans are demanding House Speaker Sara Gideon call for Hamann’s resignation, with Demi Kouzounas, chairwoman of the Maine Republican Party, calling Hamann “unhinged and dangerous.”

“Words cannot even begin to describe the level of revulsion I feel after reading Rep. Scott Hamann’s recent tirade that has come to light,” Kouzounas said in a statement. “Perhaps the most alarming aspect of this tirade is an implied death threat against our president.”

However, Gideon’s spokeswoman said the Democratic representative “was on vacation and unavailable for comment”.

Many see Hamann’s threat as yet another example of how the left is inciting violence against Donald Trump and Republicans in general.

Last month, 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson targeted Republican lawmakers in an attempted massacre after vowing on Facebook that he would “destroy” Trump and saw him as a “traitor”.

Despite innumerable violent attacks on Trump supporters across the country, the mainstream media has attempted to maintain the narrative that Trump’s rhetoric is responsible for the hatred, with some even going so far as to blame Hodgkinson’s attempted massacre on Trump, despite the fact that the culprit was a Bernie-supporting leftist.
