If you were wondering how the unverified dossier about Trump, Russia and golden showers got in the hands of U.S. intelligence, wonder no longer. Apparently Senator John McCain is the one who handed it over to the FBI.
“Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,” McCain said in a statement. “Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.”
So who wrote the dossier that apparently contains a story that was fabricated by 4chan? It’s being said that it was put together by a former British MI6 agent who was hired by political opposition (both Republicans and Democrats).
Russia denies having dirt on Trump, calling the dossier “pulp fiction.” Of course, Trump completely denies it, too. And many media media outlets are no claiming that they had seen the document in recent months but decided not to run with it because it was unsubstantiated and unverifiable.
