Washington Post Quotes McCain Flunky That Passed On Debunked Trump Dossier

Published

on

Neoconservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin recently quoted the neocon scholar who passed on the discredited “Trump dossier” to Sen. John McCain, who handed it to FBI director James Comey.

The debunked dossier, compiled by British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, was brought to the attention of McCain. It was former Bush State Department functionary David J. Kramer, a former senior fellow at Bill Kristol’s Project for a New American Century and now a senior director at the McCain Institute, who obtained the dossier in England and gave it to McCain. A pro-Clinton firm called Fusion GPS was integrally involved in some way in the spreading of the dossier, prompting increased scrutiny of the firm in recent days.

As Big League Politics exclusively reported, McCain watched the Election Night results in November with fellow neocon senator Lindsey Graham. When Graham said, “Well, now we’re going to have to deal with this guy (Trump) for four years,” McCain replied, “No. He’s going to have to deal with us.”

Reading Jennifer Rubin is the easiest way to piece together how the neocons operate, not because her articles are interesting or meritorious in and of themselves (they’re not), but because she sloppily exposes the in-plain-sight neocon networks that work together to undermine Trump and brazenly think that no one will expose them.

Kramer just happens to get quoted in Rubin’s work alongside McCain.

Here’s an excerpt from Rubin’s June 20 piece “Maybe Tillerson and Trump will finally understand why human rights matter”: (emphasis added):

And yet with regard to North Korea and Cuba, Trump’s words have much less effect than they would had he maintained a robust, consistent stance on human rights. “The administration has spoken out on human rights in Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, even Iran,” notes human rights expert and former State Department official David Kramer. “But the president’s embrace of Putin, Erdogan, Duterte, Sisi and Gulf leaders, his explicit statement in Riyadh that the United States will not ‘lecture’ others regarding human rights, and the secretary’s marginalization of human rights and democracy in his various remarks undermine U.S. efforts to advance human rights around the world.” He adds, “Whereas the previous administration showed little interest in the promoting human rights at the highest levels, the current one shows actual disdain for it. That demoralizes those struggling for an improvement in human rights in challenging places around the globe.”

Married Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver Accused of Grooming Young Men, Offering Jobs for Sex

Well this isn’t a good look.

John Weaver, political consultant and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, has been accused of being a sexual predator who targeted young men.

Conservative author and political commentator Ryan Girdusky piqued curiosity and set off widespread speculation after tweeting late Saturday afternoon that “one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project [offered] jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” adding that “his wife is probably interested” to hear about the allegations.

Although Girdusky did not post screenshots of Weaver’s predatory actions himself, saying he “worked with journalists and reached out to victims asking for them to speak up because it was their story, not mine,” several others spoke up about what they experienced and heard.

Twitter user @JoshPri68522288 was one of the first to speak up, tweeting that “I know who did it, because they did it to me. It was John Weaver.”

@_liberalproject also said that “Weaver used to follow me when I used my real name on here. Out of the blue he DM’d being pushy with personal questions and trying to flirt with me. After I didn’t go along with it, he unfollowed me and never DM’d me since.”

News of the impending allegations was also retweeted by Donald Trump Jr.

The longest Twitter thread on the accusations came from journalist Scott Stedman, who started a Twitter thread that begins as follows: “I don’t want to feed into Don Jr’s nonsense but I do want to tell a story. I followed John Weaver when I started my Twitter account. We exchanged messages, I sent him my stories, chatted about Russia, etc. He wrote a blurb for my book. He offered me some sort of “joint venture” which I wasn’t interested in, so I didn’t respond to his calls.”

Stedman continues: “One day, he DM’d me and said he had ‘advice’. He then proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’ I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair. He started calling me ‘my boy’. I found it deeply uncomfortable.”

What he said to me pales in comparison to others with whom Weaver communicated and countless others who have experienced much worse from people in power,” Stedman said.

And there could be much more where that came from…

Neither The Lincoln Project nor it’s leadership have publicly commented on the accusations yet, including Weaver himself.

Stay tuned as this story develops.
