Claims have been made that Russian operatives have “compromising information” on Donald Trump. Democrats are alleging that this is why Donald Trump doesn’t want to uphold our commitment to NATO and why he’s going to reverse Obama’s Russian sanctions. But what’s really going on?
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.
One reason the nation’s intelligence chiefs took the extraordinary step of including the synopsis in the briefing documents was to make the President-elect aware that such allegations involving him are circulating among intelligence agencies, senior members of Congress and other government officials in Washington, multiple sources tell CNN.
Notice the words that CNN uses, “allegations”, “claims”, “FBI is investigating the credibility and accuracy”, “has not confirmed many essential details”, “multiple sources tell CNN”.
Who are these “sources” and is this legitimate? Because the leftist media have done nothing but try and discredit Donald Trump. Just another scheme to undermine Trump’s authority?
