CNN is reporting that the intelligence community is investigating claims that Russia has compromised Trump and has damaging personal and financial information on the president-elect.
Classified 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 report also debunks the lie that has been adopted by the president-elect that Russia only hacked the DNC. Russia complied damaging info on both candidates but chose only to release the Hillary Clinton information.
If Russia does have damaging personal and financial information on Trump, it will go a long way towards explaining Trump’s pro-Russia stance. The Russian government may have the goods on Trump, which is why the president-elect has become Putin’s biggest fan.
With each revelation, the Trump/Russia scandal mushrooms into a bigger story. America can’t have a compromised individual serving in the White House as president. Congress must seriously investigate this report. If it is determined to be true, Donald Trump can’t serve as President Of The United States.
