Mark Robert Warner (born December 15, 1954), a Democrat, is a Senator from Virginia and a former Governor. He serves as chairman and founder of Forward Together PAC.

In 2001, Warner campaigned for Governor of Virginia as a moderate Democrat and defeated Republican Mark Earley with 52% of the vote. Despite campaigning not to raise taxes, he raised the sales tax twice. He also increased cigarette taxes and vetoed a repeal of the death tax. Warner chaired the National Governors Association and the Southern Governors' Association. He was very popular as governor and helped Democrats gain seats in the state House and Senate, however, not enough to gain the majority. Warner is known to be a conservative or moderate Democrat. On crime he supports the death penalty and increasing penalties for illegal drugs. As governor he supported a line-item veto and the right to bear arms. Warner has stated that he supports "responsible" abortion.

Warner is an outspoken proponent of the single party police state.[1]

Trump-Russia investigation

In January 2017 Warner assumed the position of ranking Democrat of the Senate Intelligence Committee, succeeding Dianne Feinstein. As such, Warner holds a position on the Gang of Eight tasked with Congressional oversight of Executive Branch covert activities, including the Obama administration's surveillance of the Trump transition team and FISA abuse which extended well into President Trump's first year in office. A former staffer of Sen. Feinstein, Dan Jones, also left the committee at the same time as Feinstein, raised $50 million from Democratic donors, and hired FusionGPS to continue its opposition research on Donald Trump, begun by Hillary Clinton and the DNC and used by the Obama administration to hoax the FISA court.

Warner wanted a covert meeting with Christopher Steele before testifying. An agent for a Russian oligarch tells Warner that FusionGPS's new boss is coming to him, and Warner can explain whatever he has to say to Steele to Dan Jones.

In March 2017 Warner began communicating with Adam Waldman as an intermediary for direct contact with Christopher Steele, author the Clinton-Steele dossier, which was used by the Obama Department of Justice to perpetrate fraud on the FISA court. Waldman is the registered agent for Russia oligarch Oleg Deripaska, a close personal confidant of Vladimir Putin. Deripaska was approached by Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok in late September 2016 and asked if he would help them by participating in the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.

Steele was under subpeaona to the House, and Warner wanted to speak with Steele privately before testifying. Steele responded that he wanted a bipartisan letter of invitation from the Senate committee first. Waldman then responds that Dan Jones in coming to see Warner, and he can explain anything him.
