    Report: Russia Has Trump Golden Showers Blackmail

    Russian intelligence officers planned to blackmail Donald Trump with
    knowledge of his alleged "perverted sexual acts," a new report obtained
    by Buzzfeed alleges. The unverified report by a person claiming to be a
    former British intelligence official alleges that Russian officials
    intended to blackmail Trump with evidence of him allegedly hiring
    multiple sex workers to perform "golden showers" in front of him. The
    hotel where the acts allegedly occurred were said to be under Russian
    surveillance.

    These Reports Allege Trump Has Deep Ties To Russia



    A dossier, compiled by a person who has claimed to be a former British
    intelligence official, alleges Russia has compromising information on
    Trump. The allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors.

    A dossier making explosive — but unverified — allegations that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” President-elect Donald Trump for years and gained compromising
    information about him has been circulating among elected officials, intelligence agents, and journalists for weeks.

    The dossier, which is a collection of memos written over a period of months, includes specific, unverified, and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians. CNN reported Tuesday that a two-page synopsis of the report was given to President Obama and Trump.

    Now BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.

    FBI chief given dossier by John McCain alleging secret Trump-Russia contacts


    Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging
    secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian
    intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect
    himself.

    The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of
    reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a
    former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private
    consultant.

    The Guardian has not been able to confirm the veracity of the
    documents’ contents, and the Trump team has consistently denied any
    hidden contacts with the Russian government.

    The explosive, but unverified, new allegations about Trump and Russia


    • Democrats (including, most recently, Sen. Ron Wyden
      (D-OR)) have hinted that the public doesn't know the whole story about
      the extent of Donald Trump's relationship with the Russian government. [Mother Jones / David Corn]



    • Now we might know. On Tuesday, CNN reported that both
      Obama and Trump had been briefed by intelligence officials on an
      explosive allegation: Russia has some sort of compromising information
      ("kompromat") about Trump, and it's holding it over him. [CNN / Evan Perez, Jim Sciutto, Jake Tapper, and Carl Bernstein]



    • This rumor has been swirling for a while (a person who
      has claimed to be a former British intelligence official is the source
      for the kompromat claim and talked to Mother Jones's David Corn before
      the election), but the fact that Obama and Trump were briefed on the
      claim indicates that the intelligence community thinks it might be
      legitimate. [Mother Jones / David Corn]



    • CNN didn't speculate about what the kompromat was, but
      the British officer's memo, posted by BuzzFeed, offers a jaw-dropping
      (and otherwise still unverified) allegation: The Russian government has
      explicit tapes of Trump engaging in perverse activities with
      prostitutes. [BuzzFeed News / Ken Basinger, Miriam Elder, and Mark Schoofs]



    • It is extremely difficult to overstate the security
      implications of one country having blackmail material on a top official
      of another country. If you haven't heard about Britain's Profumo scandal
      of the 1960s, you should read up. [The Telegraph / Patrick Sawer]



    • However. This is unverified information. And it's
      extremely important not to treat unverified information from the
      intelligence community as gospel — as we learned in the runup to the
      Iraq War. [New Yorker / Seymour M. Hersh]



    • It's worth noting that journalists around America have
      seen the claims about the Trump sex tape, and none of them have been
      able to verify those claims. [Yair Rosenberg via Twitter]



    • (It's also worth noting that Trump's professed desire
      for a closer US/Russia relationship is going to have an important effect
      on US foreign policy, no matter what the underlying motive is for the
      detente.) [Vox / Matt Yglesias]



    • Trump's first press conference since winning the
      election is scheduled for tomorrow. Under the circumstances, he might
      cancel. But if he doesn't, it seems likely that reporters will spend the
      presser trying to ask Trump if he's a victim of Russian blackmail.

    It is real enough that the NSC has briefed Obama on the issue. And also told Trump what is said about him.

    Forget all the other stuff in the dossier. Take the key one. If Trump's lawyer met clandestinely w/RIS in Prague to coordinate, it's over.
