In a report that will likely set much of the liberal media on fire in the coming days, CNN reports, citing “multiple US officials”, that top intelligence officials last week briefed President-elect Donald Trump about Russian operatives’ claims that they have compromised Trump’s personal and financial information. The two-page document which was presented to Trump as an appendix to last week’s briefing on alleged Russian interference in the presidential election, also noted allegations that there was an exchange of information between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government during the campaign.
Supposedly the information is far more damaging than audio recording of Trump talking about “grabbing women by the pussy”, and yet one wonders how nobody in the Clinton campaign, with all its extensive connections, was able to get to it.
According to CNN, the allegations have emerged from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative, “whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible.” The FBI is investigating the credibility and accuracy of these allegations, which are based primarily on information from Russian sources, but has not confirmed many essential details in the memos about Trump.
In other words, just like the report about Russian interference has yet to provide any evidence, so this latest accusation is mostly based on the analytical work of a source some “officials consider credible.” Still, even without proof, the implied allegation in the CNN report, namely that Trump is a puppet of the Kremlin, will promptly become a fact, and will be used to escalate the anti-Russian sentiment in the US. That this report comes just ten days before Trump’s inauguration is probably not coincidental.
