As the president continues to fight for American interests, he has repeatedly come under attack by mainstream politicians from both the Democratic and Republican parties who would rather see their own interests being promoted at the expense of the average American citizen.
In what seems like a plot to slander and defame the president’s reputation, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is now facing questions regarding a defamation lawsuit and leaks that have led to the publication of the ‘dossier’ that alleged Donald Trump’s campaign had connections to Russian operatives.

The dossier in question, first compiled by former MI6 spy Christopher Steele and his firm, Orbis Business Intelligence, amounted to nothing more than a collection of unverified reports of “collusion” gathered as political research with the intent of being sold to Trump’s opponents.
Recently, two lawsuits – one in the U.K. and one in the U.S. — are being brought by lawyers for Aleksej Guvarev, a Cyprus-based internet entrepreneur who was accused of cyber spying against Democratic Party leadership in the dossier who is fighting to get his reputation back.
A new court document in the U.K. lawsuit indicates that John McCain, a vocal Trump critic, was one of the only people in the world known to have a copy of the full document before it was circulated among journalists.
The same court document confirms that Sir Andrew Wood, former British ambassador to Moscow, discussed the dossier with McCain, who had reached out to him regarding the file that McCain had obtained through other means.
Ex-FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by Trump, previously acknowledged that he had received the very same dossier from McCain. The senator declined to comment on the new court document that confirms his possession of these files, which appear to amount to nothing more than a compiled series of unconfirmed rumors meant to slander the president and mislead the public.
As it turns out, at least a dozen national media organizations also obtained a copy of the dossier shortly before Buzzfeed published it, but they hesitated on releasing it since most of the details had not been corroborated.
The dossier accused two of Gubarev’s companies, XBT and Webzilla, of planting digital bugs, transmitting viruses, and conducting altering operations against the Democratic Party leadership. All of the claims were unconfirmed.
“My client certainly wants to take the case to trial. He wants his reputation back,” said Gubarev’s lawyer. He hopes to put the former MI6 spy under oath, particularly concerning the specifics of how the accusation came about and reveal in court the duplicitous nature of the document.
Sen. McCain won’t end his war against Trump and conservatives — unless voters do something about it. What do you think? Let everyone know in the poll below!
Val Gurvits, leading attorney in the U.S. lawsuit, confirmed the defamatory nature of this dossier and dismissed the claim that it was mere political research, stating,“The value of this document is only if it is published. It is absolutely of no value to anybody unless it is published. Slander is slander when you say it to one person.”
As details of this plot continue to come forth, John McCain is going to have to face some tough questions concerning his involvement in this complicated affair. If it is revealed that he purposefully leaked the unconfirmed dossier to the press, his reputation will be in tatters.
