It says: 'Trump's unorthodox behavior in Russia over the years had provided the authorities there with enough embarrassing material on the now Republican presidential candidate to be able to blackmail him if they so wished.'Trump ridiculed the idea, pointing out that Russian hotel rooms are known to be rigged with cameras and describing himself as a 'germophobe'.The document states that Trump had declined 'sweetener' real estate deals in Russia that the Kremlin lined up in order to cultivate him.
The Guardian suggested he also delivered the documents to his country's own intelligence service.
Within 24 hours, the dossier was in Washington, though the contents of the file couldn't be verified without an investigation.
Mc Cain, the Guardian said, was worried that his actions might be interpreted as revenge for some of the controversial comments Trump made about him – such as knocking the fact that the longtime senator had been a prisoner of war.
In a carefully nuanced statement he said: 'Yes I did meet Senator Mc Cain and his aides at the conference.'We spoke about the kind of activities the Russians can be engaged in.'We also spoke about how Mr Trump may find himself in a position where there could be an attempt to blackmail him with Kompromat [a Russian term for compromising material] and claims that there were audio and video tapes in existence.'He added: 'I would like to stress that I did not pass on any dossier to Senator Mc Cain or anyone else and I did not see a dossier at the time.
I do know Christopher Steele and in my view he is very professional and thorough in what he does.'He did not however address whether he told Mc Cain there was a dossier - and how to get it. The report states that in 2013 Trump hired prostitutes to urinate on the bed of the Presidential Suite at the Moscow Ritz Carlton, where he knew Barack and Michelle Obama had previously stayed.
On November 18, at the Halifax International Security Forum, Mc Cain was introduced to a 'former senior western diplomat' who had set eyes on the documents and knew who put them together, telling the Arizona Republican that the individual was 'highly reliable.' That man can now be named as Sir Andrew Wood, British ambassador to Moscow from 1995 to 2000.
Wood told the Independent that he had met Mc Cain, spoken to him about Trump, and about the potential for him to be compromised.
Shortly after the election, John Mc Cain (right) was attending a conference in Canada and spoke with a 'former senior western diplomat' who knew of the dossier's existence. He issued a nuanced explanation of his dealings with Mc Cain: 'I would like to stress that I did not pass on any dossier to Senator Mc Cain or anyone else and I did not see a dossier at the time.' He did not deny alerting Mc Cain to its existence In turn, that firm outsourced the research to a 'retired western European former counter-intelligence official, with a long history of dealing with the shadow world of Moscow's spooks and siloviki (securocrats),' explained the Guardian.
Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal identified the ex-spy as Christopher Steele.
As fall approached, and he heard nothing about any FBI investigation into the documents, he was persuaded to tell journalist David Corn, of Mother Jones, of their existence.
The veteran reporter wrote about the dossier on October 31.
The contractor, who the Guardian didn't name, but the Wall Street Journal identified as Steele, reportedly found the information that he dug up to be concerning.
