Speaking to Fox and Friends this morning, the Senator said, “Well my source tells me that the intelligence community, Obama’s intelligence community, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, they were frustrated because they had this Russian dossier but no one believed it was real. It wasn’t verifiable, they couldn’t get anything out of it, so they sent spies into the Trump campaign, they tried to entrap Trump officials to admit they were working for Russia, that wasn’t working.”
Paul explained that the officials were “frustrated” that media outlets wouldn’t take the dossier seriously because of its salacious and unverifiable content, so they ultimately attached it to President Obama’s intelligence report.
The Senator called the dossier situation a “big circle” explaining, “They’ve had the dossier for months and months, so when John McCain is given the dossier its given to him by people who may have leaked it from our government to John McCain so John McCain could give it back to the FBI…”
Yesterday, Paul tweeted an explosive allegation, claiming his source told him former CIA Director John Brennan “insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report…Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP.”
Watch Rand Paul’s explosive interview with Fox News below:
In this episode I address the real collusion scandal in the 2016 election. It involves political players from both parties and Ukraine. I also address the media’s efforts to silence criticism of McCain associate David Kramer’s role in the distribution of the dirty dossier. Finally, I address competing election models which predict a Trump landslide and a tough re-election.
In a Dec. 13, 2017 court deposition that was unsealed yesterday, Kramer said he provided a copy of the dossier to news outlets including McClatchy, NPR, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and BuzzFeed and CNN’s Carl Bernstein.
Kramer also shared the dossier with Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL), State Department official Victoria Nuland and Obama official, Celeste Wallander.
The dossier was funded by the Clinton campaign and the DNC and was created by ex-British spy Christopher Steele who was hired by opposition research firm Fusion GPS to compile the information.
The Daily Caller reports:
Kramer said he believed McCain was sought out in order to provide more “oomph” in terms of attracting the FBI’s attention.
“I think they felt a senior Republican was better to be the recipient of this rather than a Democrat because if it were a Democrat, I think that the view was that it would have been dismissed as a political attack,” said Kramer.
In some cases, according to the deposition, Kramer shared the dossier with reporters with Steele’s and (Fusion GPS founder Glenn) Simpson’s knowledge.
