David Kramer deposition: Mr. Kramer was chosen to sheepdip the dodgy dossier to Senator McCain and the media because he was a leading Never Trump and because he despised Putin and the current Russian regime.
Kramer has a long history with Neoconservstive war mongers including the Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan backed Project for New American century.
They openly wrote President Bill Clinton in 1998 advocating for the regime change in Iraq. The signatories are a who's who of war mongering Neoconservatives pushing for wars of empire.
Just look at this list including Elliott Abrams who is working on regime change in Venezuela and Zalmat Khalilzad who is negotiating with the Taliban and John Bolton who is currengtly Trump's National Security Advisor.
Why was David Kramer chosen as the intermediary between former Ambassador Andrew Wood and John McCain? I argue it is because David Kramer was 1000% anti Trump and anti McCain. I don't believe they could for certain ascertain that about the Maverick McCain.
David Kramer claims throughout his deposition to be giving off the record briefings to multiple reporters with wink wink nudge nudge "Don't publish this information." Why else were Steele setting up what amounts to a media tour for him?
David Kramer learns upon his return who is funding this information Fusion GPS. Does he consider they might have an axe to grind? Of course not because no Republican was more public that they despised Trump and Russia.
David Kramer reads the 16 memos from the dodgy dossier at Chris Steele's home but can't recall what questions he had but, "he explained again that the information he gathered was what he found, not what he thought the client might like."
Obviously Steele's attempt during the election to get the FBI to damage Donald Trump so post election Steele gets Trump haters David Kramer and John McCain to do his bidding. After all as Bruce Ohr testified Chris Steele was desperate Trump not be elected.
David Kramer's testimony makes it clear not only was the FBI not biting on the dossier ellegation holk neither was the New York Times. So Glenn Simpson and Chris Steele picked louder bait- Kramer and Simpson.
Look Chris Steele is so nice he gets David Kramer in touch with Presidential Dragon Slayer- Carl Bernstein. Why did Chris loop Kramer into this with Carl Bernstein? Why? Because this sheep dip needed a Republican to hide the smell because Kramer adds nothing.
Chris Steele is the one who suggests Bensinger from Buzzfeed. Again Steele chooses the reporter and messenger David Kramer. This is a task that Glenn and Chris could have done independently. Why? Because the press knows they are hired hacks.
Chris Steele sets up the Buzzfeed meeting with Republican Never Trumper Kramer because of that big Atlantic pond but why not Glenn Simpson? Because McCain angle deflects from the weakness of the allegations and sources.
Am I to believe Chris Steele who has never met David Kramer allows Kramer to see a list of the sources of the dodgy dossier but both Kramer and Steele are outraged later that its publication with names redacted could get someone killed?
But Kramer insists they are all high level sources. Way to protect the confidentiality of your dodgy dossier sources Chris Steele. Kramer does it admit the material is worse than hearsay, its fourth hand gossip. Boy this sheepdip smells of rotten fish.
David Kramer's testimony proves Glenn Simpson had struck out once with the FBI. It was strike two with the media to affect the outcome. So there last strike was a desperate swing using a Never Trumper whose reputation was in tatters and as desperate as Chris Steele and Glenn.
My takeaway from David Kramer's testimony is Chris Steele and Glenn Simpson don't have stellar reputations quite the contrary. They are a PR firm who are paid to weaponize information to harm their clients' enemies for millions of dollars. CIA war mongeringSwamp Creatures!!
