Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him

Source: CNN

(CNN)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 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.

These senior intelligence officials also included the synopsis to demonstrate that Russia had compiled information potentially harmful to both political parties, but only released information damaging to Hillary Clinton and Democrats. This synopsis was not an official part of the report from the intelligence community case about Russian hacks, but some officials said it augmented the evidence that Moscow intended to harm Clinton's candidacy and help Trump's, several officials with knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.

This is a very pertinent part of this article:

The two-page synopsis also included allegations that there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government, according to two national security officials.

is compromised by Russia?

Is that what this is saying in a convoluted way?

A repub congress will not turn on their own. Even if so many facts came out that they politically couldn't ignore this anymore we're still left with Pence. Either way we're fucked for 4 years. Our best hope is that tRump stumbles all over himself so badly that he drags the rest of his party down with him.

18. Boris letting it be known that he's in the know???

Today:

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson says Britain told U.S. President-elect Donald Trump and his team that Russia "is up to all sorts of very dirty tricks, such as cyber-warfare" and was behind hacking during the presidential election.

Trump has expressed skepticism about links between Russia and the hacking.

Johnson says "it's pretty clear" that hacking of Democrats' emails "came from the Russians."

16. The FBI knew this information.

And they sat on it and instead opened up a pointless investigation into Hillary's emails.

Sources tell CNN that these same allegations about communications between the Trump campaign and the Russians, mentioned in classified briefings for congressional leaders last year, prompted then-Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid to send a letter to FBI Director Comey in October, in which he wrote, "It has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government -- a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States."


This is what's sticking in my throat the most.

If I got this right there was proof when harry reid complained that comey knew the Russians were in fact working in concert with Donald trumps team during election. Also a british agent found out the Russians have a two page report on some damning or proof trump has some serious skeletons in his closet that the Russians can use against trump.

72. If they impeach him.

I'm not convinced they will. The intelligence community has him by the balls now, and the GOP may find him useful as a rubber stamping POTUS. This modern GOP get away with much more publicly viewed atrocities than the Nixon era GOP. They spin, lie and spread their disinformation to rally their forces.

I'm really not sure how this is all going to end yet, maybe if we're lucky Putin will get pissed over his loss of Trump and release info on him out of spite? That would end in his being impeached for sure.

73. So, where do we go from here?

Swear him in as President, then begin impeachment hearings?

Then contend with the coming theoracy of Pence. How do we stay optimistic with such a mess?





Btw, I am so furious with every Trump supporter I know that I cannot speak to them. Skipped Christmas dinner with the relatives and would be just as happy to never see them again.

75. "They say you enjoy watching golden showers, Mr. President-Elect."

I wonder if Orange-Face turned a deep shade of red in response.

Birds are territorial creatures.
The lyrics to the songbird's melodious trill go something like this:
"Stay out of my territory or I'll PECK YOUR GODDAMNED EYES OUT!"

76. People here are clearly not reading the articles and considering the implications

If we accuse him of this stuff, and it turns out to be false, we'll never be able to accuse him of anything sensational ever again.

He'll just sit there and say, "remember that time you accused me of sexual deviancy?" And "is this like the campaign staff meeting in Prague that we can prove did not happen?"

It's going to be Teflon to shore up his base
