CNN Implies Russia Has Compromised Trump

Tuesday, January 10, 2017 18:46
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

(Before It's News) The Leftist games continue, and the usual participants rejoice in their roles.

In what looks like the old cartoon, Spy v Spy, CNN appears to pit WikiLeaks against America’s intelligence community. Trump’s dismissal of the America intelligence apparatus being not so cleverly questioned:

putin-and-trump-pointingClassified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.

The allegations were presented in a two-page synopsis that was appended to a report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. The allegations came, in part, 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 Mr. Trump.

The classified briefings last week were presented by four of the senior-most US intelligence chiefs — Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers.

And so it begins. The new narrative is that Trump has been compromised.

The Left want America to believe that Trump is a tool of Putin who has the goods on him.
The story certainly fits nicely with the media spin during the campaign that had Trump and Putin spooning on the beaches of Vladivostok. Here’s how Politico’s Michael Crowley summarized Trump in April of last year:
The blustery billionaire has praised Putin as a strong leader, spoken of closer ties with Moscow and mused about whether NATO is obsolete. At the foreign policy speech Trump delivered in Washington on April 27, the Russian ambassador to the United States was sitting in the front row. As Trump has risen, RT has gotten much more interested in the U.S. presidential campaign. Tune in to Ed Schultz and his colleagues these days and you’ll find a presidential race featuring Hillary Clinton as a malevolent warmonger, Bernie Sanders as an insurgent hero—and Donald Trump as a foreign policy savant.

They even tried “guilt by association,” as Politico linked Trump’s then campaign adviser Paul Manafort to Russia.

For years, Manafort worked as a consultant to ex-Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, building what his own friends characterized as a “political love connection” with the pro-Russian leader. It was Yanukovych’s last-minute refusal to sign a trade agreement with the European Union in 2013 that sparked the Maidan revolution that ultimately drove him from power after his security forces murdered some 100 protestors in downtown Kiev. Yanukovych fled to Russia, where he remains.

Manafort was paid handsomely to clean up Yanukovych’s negative image, much as he is currently trying to do with Trump. But as is often the case with Western PR men hired to put lipstick on a pig, the pig is still a pig.

So an image clean up is a scandal for the Left? I can see why Obama had the scandal-free administration…NOT!

Unable to defeat Trump with a “Russia so bad” campaign, what does the Left do? Continue to narrative, Silly!

FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday refused to say whether his bureau was investigating any possible ties between Russia and the Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, citing policy not to comment on what the FBI might or might not be doing.

Comey testified at the Senate‘s second hearing in a week addressing allegations of Russian election hacking. In late October he angered Democrats when he announced 11 days before the election that the FBI was looking at more emails as part of its investigation of Hillary Clinton.

“I would never comment on investigations — whether we have one or not — in an open forum like this so I can’t answer one way or another,” Comey told the Senate’s intelligence committee during his first public appearance before Congress since the unusual disclosure about Clinton.

“The irony of your making that statement, I cannot avoid,” said Sen. Angus King, a Maine independent.

The Left has gone downright Comey on Trump. They hope to bring Trump down with the tactics they feel brought down crooked Hillary.
You will soon hear more about Trump’s taxes. Then the Left will try to wrap a bow around this present of red herrings.
