Intel Chiefs Presented Trump With Claims Russia May Have Information That Could Compromise Him.
Donald Trump may be compromised because of potentially embarrassing or damaging information the Russians have on him. Buzzfeed is reporting that a dossier, compiled by a person who has claimed to be a former British intelligence official, alleges Russia has compromising information on Trump. The report also states that the allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors.
It was Republican senator John McCain that handed over an explosive dossier on Donald Trump’s alleged links to the FBI in December. According to DailyMail the alarming report contained a string of lurid allegations which were supposedly made by Russian agents in a bid to control Trump. Senator McCain, who Trump branded as ‘not a war hero because he was captured,’ sent an emissary to meet the former MI6 agent to collect a copy of the dossier.

Russia has denied ‘completely fake’ allegations that it has a blackmail file on Donald Trump containing footage of him watching prostitutes in a Moscow hotel bed.
U.S. officials allegedly included a two-page synopsis of ‘kompromat’ – Russian for compromising material – as part of their security briefing of Trump on Friday.
CNN reported that the material, described by Trump as ‘fake’ and a ‘political witch hunt’, was based on memos compiled by a British intelligence operative who was considered ‘credible’ by the U.S. intelligence community.
The document claims Russian sources told the operative that they had extensive material on the now president-elect – including a secret film of him in the suite where President Obama stayed in Moscow, watching prostitutes committing degrading sex acts on the bed where the president slept.
But Dmitry Peskov, the spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin , dismissed the reports as a ‘complete fabrication and utter nonsense’.
What is believed to be the 35-page document itself was published by Buzzfeed, which pointed out that it contained errors. Little of its contents can be independently verified, while there has been no official confirmation of the details of the briefing.
Denying even the existence of a ‘kompromat’ on Trump, Peskov said this morning: ‘This information does not correspond to reality and is no more than fiction.’
Trump himself has already dismissed the claims, tweeting: ‘FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!’
And in his later tweets, Trump slammed ‘Very unfair’ reports, insisting Russia had ‘never tried to use leverage over me’ and that he had ‘nothing to do with Russia – no deals, no loans, no nothing’.
