In today’s video of the day, Conservative Firing Line contributor Adam Taxin discusses Virginia Democrat Mark Warner, who we now know, actually colluded with a Russian oligarch to secure a private meeting with Christopher Steele, the author of the fake dossier at the center of the FISAgate scandal.
Taxin notes in his YouTube description:
Tweet from President Trump last night: “Wow! -Senator Mark Warner got caught having extensive contact with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch. Warner did not want a ‘paper trail’ on a ‘private’ meeting (in London) he requested with Steele of fraudulent Dossier fame. All tied into Crooked Hillary.”
Here’s his video:
According to Fox News:
Steele famously put together the anti-Trump dossier of unverified information that was used by FBI and Justice Department officials in October 2016 to get a warrant to conduct surveillance of former Trump adviser Carter Page. Despite the efforts, Steele has not agreed to an interview with the committee.
Secrecy seemed very important to Warner as the conversation with Waldman heated up March 29, when the lobbyist revealed that Steele wanted a bipartisan letter from Warner and the committee’s chairman, North Carolina Republican Sen. Richard Burr, inviting him to talk to the Senate intelligence panel.
Throughout the text exchanges, Warner seemed particularly intent on connecting directly with Steele without anyone else on the Senate Intelligence Committee being in the loop — at least initially. In one text to the lobbyist, Warner wrote that he would “rather not have a paper trail” of his messages.
It sure looks like Democrats have had many more contacts with Russians than Republicans lately…
