A former Senator who went to his grave hating President Donald J. Trump lied when was asked by a reporter whether he had leaked the bogus Steele Dossier, and became enraged that she would question his “integrity.”
“As soon as I got it, I gave it to the director of the FBI,” McCain told a reporter upon questioning.
Kerry Picket at Grabien dug up the audio file of the interview.
The reporter kept digging, asking if BuzzFeed or any other media outlet had access to the unverified and salacious document, which, at that point, had been leaked to the media by an anonymous source.
“Damned if I know,” McCain shot back. “How would I know? I didn’t give anybody any . I looked at it, I took it over to the Director of the FBI.”
He also indignantly assured the reporter that no one else in his office had access to it, or could have leaked it, telling her “I was the only one who had it.”
He then took a question from another reporter, and used his response to back the Trump administration. The first reporter then followed up with another question about the dossier, and McCain became enraged.
“I will repeat to you: I was told about it, someone went over and got it, it was given to me and me only – my safe. As soon as I saw it, I called up the FBI, and I said ‘I have this, I’m not having any copies, I’m not having anything to do with it, I’m giving it to you.'”
“Look, how many times do I have to tell you?” he asked. “How many times do I have to answer your question? You are questioning my integrity right now. The answer is no. Please don’t ask it again. I gave it to no one except the Director of the FBI, and I don’t know why you’re digging this up now.”
But McCain’s defense was shredded by a December court filing, which claimed that a friend of his handed over the Democrat-funded, British spy’s work to BuzzFeed.
A longtime associate of late Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain provided a copy of the infamous Steele dossier to BuzzFeed News, according to an explosive court filing released Wednesday.
David Kramer, a former State Department official who was an executive at the McCain Institute, met on Dec. 29, 2016 with BuzzFeed reporter Ken Bensinger, according to a filing submitted Wednesday by U.S. District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro.
Trump has not given up on his longtime feud with the late Senator, whom he blames for derailing the ObamaCare repeal despite campaigning on a promise to get rid of President Barack H. Obama’s signature legislation.
Trump Tweeted about the court docs proving that McCain handed over the dossier to BuzzFeed two weeks ago.
Big League Politics reported:
President Donald J. Trump took a swipe at late former Senator and failed presidential candidate John McCain for his role in spreading the bogus, never verified Steele Dossier.
“So it was indeed (just proven in court papers) ‘last in his class’ (Annapolis) John McCain that sent the Fake Dossier to the FBI and Media hoping to have it printed BEFORE the Election. He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!” Trump said on Twitter.
McCain admitted in a memoir written before he died that he handed the Clinton campaign funded dossier over to disgraced former FBI director James Comey because he felt “duty demanded it.” He also said that “anybody who doesn’t like it can go to hell.”
Trump was miffed upon finding out that McCain gave the dossier to Comey before the election, and insinuated that McCain was trying to influence the results of the election.

Third Witness Claims Bill Clinton Visited Jeffrey Epstein’s Infamous “Pedophile Island”
Doug Band is a former Clinton White House aide.
A longtime Bill Clinton aide has revealed the 42nd President visited Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous “pedophile island” of Little St. James in the Virgin Islands, becoming the third witness to claim he had traveled to the island.
Doug Band started as an aide in the Clinton White House in 1995, going on to serve as a post-presidency advisor to Bill Clinton until 2012. He indicated to Vanity Fair in a story released Wednesday that Clinton had visited Little St. James in January 2003, noting he declined to travel with the former President on the trip. Band eventually ended his relationship with the Clintons, citing connections to Epstein as a cause. “I don’t want anything to do with that world,” stated the former political operative to Vanity Fair.
Band goes on to speak of a relationship between charged Epstein “madame” Ghislane Maxwell and the Clintons, revealing that Chelsea Clinton invited Maxwell to her wedding in New York in 2010. Epstein had been convicted of soliciting a minor for prostitution in 2008.

Two other witnesses formerly associated with Epstein himself claim to have seen Bill Clinton personally on the island. These incude Virginia Giuffre, a woman who was trafficked and abused by Epstein as a minor, and Steve Scully, who worked as Epstein’s handyman for the island.
“Bill Clinton has been on that island. I saw Bill Clinton sitting with Jeffrey on the living room porch,” stated Scully in a May Netflix documentary. Scully would later resign from Epstein’s employment, citing his knowledge of the sex crimes the pedophile billionaire was engaging in on the island. None of the witnesses that claim Clinton visited the island say they’ve seen him engaging in sexual activity.
Clinton has consistently denied that he ever visited the island, where Epstein engaged in prolific sexual abuse of minors and trafficked women. He reportedly provided travel documents to Vanity Fair that didn’t detail a trip to the island around the same timeframe. However, three credible witnesses- two with connections to Epstein and one with connections to Clinton himself- all claim that he did in fact travel to Little St. James.
