Devin Nunes subpoenas John McCain associate over Trump-Russia dossier: report

Published

on

Once again flouting his self-imposed recusal, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has issued a subpoena for an associate of Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) with connections to the infamous “golden showers” dossier.

As the Washington Examiner reported Wednesday, Nunes subpoenaed former State Department official David Kramer who traveled to the United Kingdom in late November 2016 “to receive a briefing and a copy of the Trump dossier” from British spy Christopher Steele.

According to the report, Kramer returned from the visit to give the dossier to McCain, who then alerted then-FBI Director James Comey, who was already aware of its existence.

“Kramer is a senior fellow at the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University,” the report notes.

During his House Intelligence Committee hearing on December 19, Kramer said “he knew the identities of the Russian sources for the allegations in Steele’s dossier,” but refused to give them up. Nunes’ subpoena stems from that denial.

Though the knowledge of Steele’s sources for the dossier are a matter of interest to Republicans and Democrats alike, Nunes has made repeated overtures to discredit and investigate the dossier and the company that published it, Fusion GPS. He’s been accused of working with the White House to obstruct investigations into Russia’s electoral interference, and before reaching a confidential agreement in October, appeared to be using his power to directly attack Fusion GPS.

Nunes has most recently been accused of trying to investigate the FBI and the Department of Justice, a favorite topic of President Donald Trump‘s in recent weeks.

‘Left wing hack’: Fox News fans lose it after anchor calls Ukraine allegations ‘a problem’ for Trump

Published

on

Fox News viewers lashed out at the network on Sunday after host Arthel Neville grilled New York Congressman Peter King (R) about President Donald Trump's alleged effort to get Ukraine to help him defeat Joe Biden.

Neville twice asked King about Trump's Ukraine scandal, and both times he evaded the question by saying that Congress does not have a right to know the details of Trump's conversations with foreign leaders.

On her third attempt, Neville got to the point by noting Trump's alleged actions are "a problem."

"We don’t know that it’s true, we hope it’s not true," the Fox News host said of the allegations against Trump. "But if there is a possibility that our president used his office to put pressure on a foreign government -- president-elect -- to dig into his possible, potential political opponent, then that’s a problem."

New York Times battered on MSNBC for pushing smear of Hunter Biden in order to maintain access to Trump

Published

on

An "AM Joy" panel jumped all over the New York Times for pushing a widely debunked smear of Hunter Biden promoted by Donald Trump, saying the newspaper is more interested in maintaining their access to the Oval Office than debunking the lie.

Speaking with host Joy Reid -- who noted that her producers asked for comment from the Times but were rebuffed -- MSNBC regular Maria Teresa Kumar scorched the Times, as well as reporter Ken Vogel, for the uncritical parroting of the president's smear.
