Sean Spicer said, "We continue to be disgusted by CNN's fake news reporting."



Washington (CNN)For the first time, US investigators say they have corroborated some of the communications detailed in a 35-page dossier compiled by a former British intelligence agent, multiple current and former US law enforcement and intelligence officials tell CNN. As CNN first reported, then-President-elect Donald Trump and President Barack Obama were briefed on the existence of the dossier prior to Trump's inauguration.

None of the newly learned information relates to the salacious allegations in the dossier. Rather it relates to conversations between foreign nationals. The dossier details about a dozen conversations between senior Russian officials and other Russian individuals. Sources would not confirm which specific conversations were intercepted or the content of those discussions due to the classified nature of US intelligence collection programs.

But the intercepts do confirm that some of the conversations described in the dossier took place between the same individuals on the same days and from the same locations as detailed in the dossier, according to the officials. CNN has not confirmed whether any content relates to then-candidate Trump.

....Reached for comment this afternoon, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said, "We continue to be disgusted by CNN's fake news reporting."

If CNN reported fake news, it was only because they believed Director Flynn and Vice President Pence the first time, when they were lying about Flynn's contacts with Russia while Obama was still president. Hard to see why CNN is to blame for that, yanno?

5. Essentially the story is saying that Russian people had conversations as detailed in the dossier.

This is not damning of Trump and his minions. However, they respond by freaking out and saying they are disgusted. At what? That Russian people had conversations?

The actual story doesn't implicate them, but their reaction ABSOLUTELY implicates them.

They are such fucking amateurs.

Meanwhile anyone who's not drinking their toxic orange Kool-Aid is waiting for these sniveling assholes to get their well-deserved come-uppance like at the end of any given teen bully movie.

He's definitely the President's voice. The Pres doesn't like a word or two of what he says(DJT has the best words), but he is just as foul and nasty.
