Senior US intelligence officials briefed both US President Obama and Donald Trump last week about claims that Russian spies have obtained compomrising personal and financial information about the President-elect, according to shock news reports that surfaced last night in the US media.
While the American mainstream media did not give any details about the “sensitive” information about Donald Trump, as it’s being described by CNN, the UK tabloids and online sources are now reporting that the Kremlin has a compromising sex tape that was recorded with the incoming US President when he visited Moscow back in 2013.
It’s claimed that Donald Trump was videotaped as he ordered and watched Russian prostitutes perform - as the dossier claims – "golden showers in front of him" in the presidential suite of a Moscow hotel. The dossier claims Trump wanted the hookers to perform degrading sex acts, including urinating on the bed in that particular room because he "hated" President Obama who had once slept in the very same bed on a visit to Moscow!
The material is reportedly based on an “credible source” who is a former British M16 intelligence officer, who received the alleged embarrassing information from his Russian contact and promptly handed it over to the FBI.
BuzzFeed News website has now put the full 35-page dossier up on its website, which includes “graphic claims of sexual acts” about Donald Trump's "sexual perversions", as well as disturbing information about his close links with Russian officials, who were “cultivating, supporting and assisting” him as he made his bid to become US President. It also discloses compromising claims about Trump's business dealings.
The unverified report states: "Speaking separately in June 2016, Source (the former top level Russian intelligence officer) asserted that unorthodox behaviour in Russia over the years had provided the authorities there with enough embarrassing material on the now Republican presidential candidate to be able to blackmail him if they so wished.”
Trump has now taken to Twitter to dismiss the story, saying: “FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!”
Donald Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen said the claims were false and “so ridiculous on so many levels.” He added, “Clearly, the person who created this did so from their imagination or did so hoping that the liberal media would run with this fake story for whatever rationale they might have.”
A Kremlin spokesperson dismissed the story today. "It is an attempt to damage our bilateral relations. It is pulp fiction." he said. "You have to react to this with a certain humour, but there's also a sad side to this. Hysteria is being whipped up to maintain a political witch hunt."
