Senator John McCain outlined his decision to transfer the infamous ‘Steele Dossier’ to federal authorities in his new book; saying it was his “duty” to hand over the material since he was unable to independently verify its claims.
According to new excerpts from ‘The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations,’ the former presidential candidate and longtime Senator recounts the various reasons behind his decision to transfer the dossier to federal officials; adding he “would do it again.”
“I agreed to receive a copy of what is now referred to as ‘the dossier,’” writes McCain.
“I had no idea which if any were true,” the senator adds. “I could not independently verify any of it, and so I did what any American who cares about our nation’s security should have done.”
“I said I didn’t know what to make of it, and I trusted the FBI would examine it carefully and investigate its claims. With that, I thanked the director and left. The entire meeting had probably not lasted longer than ten minutes. I did what duty demanded I do,” McCain concludes.
