McCain’s Aide, David Kramer, Pleads The 5th On His Role In The Shady Dossier.
David Kramer has now taken the 5th when questioned 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 that Kramer was briefed by the junk-Dossier’s author, 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.
As Written By Thomas Lifson with American Thinker:
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.
Catherine Herridge reports for Fox News:
A former 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.

According to the Washington Examiner, McCain has long refused to detail his actions regarding the dossier. For his part, Kramer was interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee on Dec. 19. The new subpoena stems from statements Kramer made in that interview.
In the session, Kramer told House investigators that he knew the identities of the Russian sources for the allegations in Steele’s dossier. But when investigators pressed Kramer to reveal those names, he declined to do so.
