In his December 2017 testimony in a libel case, David Kramer – a former aide to late Arizona Senator John McCain – said he briefed news outlets on the Dossier.

BuzzFeed news photographed the document, against Kramer’s requests, and spurred the 2017 article, breaking news of the Dossier’s existence.

The former aide also admitted to giving the document, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, to the FBI. Kramer has not been reprimanded for his role in the leak.
