Trump surrogate Katrina Pierson demands John McCain answer her questions — and gets buried in ridicule

Published

on

A former Trump campaign spokesperson demanded that recently-deceased Sen. John McCain answer questions about a controversial dossier — and immediately drew ridicule.

Trump surrogate Katrina Pierson tweeted Thursday evening that McCain “still refuses to answer questions about his role” in the dossier alleging a number of damning ties between Donald Trump and Russia written by former MI6 spy Christopher Steele.

The link in the tweet was from 2017 — before the senator and former presidential candidate passed away — but was nonetheless sent out on December 20, 2018.

“Who wants to tell her?” writer Dustin Giebel tweeted before joking that Pierson is “screaming at McCain’s gravestone, ‘”ANSWER ME G*DDAMNIT.'”

ABC News podcaster Matt Bevin, meanwhile, mused that the former Trump campaign aide is “in her office screaming questions at a Ouija board.”

Another user noted, in vulgar fashion, that Pierson may have messed up her Hootsuite tweet-scheduling settings — or at least hoped she had.

Rod Rosenstein

Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein claimed responsibility for the release of text messages between then-FBI attorney Lisa Page and then-FBI official Peter Strzok.

Emails released in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) revealed the highly unusual release by Sarah Isgur Flores, who at the time was the spokesperson for Trump's Department of Justice (she is now overseeing CNN's 2020 election coverage).

On Saturday, CBC News reported that several members of a white supremacist group called The Base have been arrested in Georgia and Wisconsin. This comes one day after another set of raids in Maryland and Delaware that caught Patrik Mathews, a former reservist from Manitoba who crossed into the United States illegally and has been missing for five months after being accused of recruiting for the extremist group.

One new key detail came out about Mathews in an affidavit used to secure the arrest warrants for Mathews' alleged compatriots, according to the CBC: "Although the document suggests the group member believed to be Mathews stayed with a Georgia cell member for months, he is later reportedly characterized as 'incompetent' and 'stupid' and is seen as a liability to the local group.
