The U.S. Inspector General’s (IG) report revealed that the late Sen. John McCain supported the file created by the ex-spy Christopher Steele, used to substantiate the false collusion with Russia.
McCain, a former Arizona Republican, gave the files to former FBI chief James Comey after they were discarded because Steele had spoken to the press, according to the Breitbart alternative media.
“Several weeks later, on December 9, 2016, Senator John McCain provided Comney with a collection of 16 Steele election reports, 5 of which Steele had not given the FBI,” said Horowitz’s report.
“McCain had obtained these reports from a staff member at the McCain Institute. The McCain Institute staff member had met with Steele and later acquired the reports from Simpson,” reads the IG report.
The report also states that McCain obtained the files from an assistant of his, who transferred them from Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson.
In turn, Fusion GPS was hired by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) through the law firm Perkins Coie.
This suggests that McCain knew the origin of the controversial material, purchased by the Democrats in the first attempt to impeach President Donald Trump.
This time the Democrats claimed that Trump’s victory was due to alleged collusion with Russia, which turned out to be false, after the long and costly investigation reported by special counsel Robert Mueller.
McCain, who died last year, admitted to personally handing over to Comey the documents prepared by the British ex-spy Steele and paid for by the Democratic opponents.
The Democrats are currently insisting on a political trial against Trump, in which they have not provided any evidence, but with which they intend once again to remove the president from office.
McCain was a presidential candidate in 2008 against Barack Obama, after the defeat, he continued to be a senator and became respected as such; he acted as an opponent of President Donald Trump, within the Republican Party.
