HOT TOPIC Russia claims to have blackmail on Trump – Official threatens to release it

It seems like Russian President Vladimir Putin may be deciding that Donald Trump is more trouble than he’s worth, after he failed to lift US sanctions against Russia multiple times. Russian officials are speaking out against Trump, mocking him, taunting, and now, talking about releasing blackmail material.

A Russian debate took place on Russian state-run television where several Russian officials discussed various political issues. One of which was was Nikita Isaev, the Director of the Russian Institute of Contemporary Economics.

He said, “Let’s hit Trump with our Kompromat!”, which certainly looks like a reference to the infamous Pee Pee Tape or, at the very least, some type of other blackmail material the Kremlin is holding over Trump’s head. (NOTE: In Russian politics, kompromat, short for “compromising material” is damaging information about a politician or other public figure used to create negative publicity, for blackmail, or for ensuring loyalty. )

The host asked, “Do we have it?” Isaev responded “Of course we have it!”

You can watch the hour-long Russian-language video can be watched here.

Julia Davis brought this to our attention when she pointed out Nikita Isaev’s call for the release of Kompromat. The interested part here is that someone in Isaev’s position wouldn’t have said something like this on Kremlin-controlled TV unless Vladimir Putin gave him permission to say it.

12. We don't care who saves us from Trump

Mueller seems to have failed. Trump's secretary of Treasury won't let IRS release Donny's tax returns. May be Putin comes to the rescue.

13. I've been waiting for ...

... this particular shoe to drop.

It makes sense. Trump has not lifted the sanctions - and is in no position to do so.

Putin's goal was to cause as much havoc in the US as possible. Now that the country is as divided as it is, toppling Trump would be like throwing a match on a nation soaked in gasoline. Mission accomplished.

17. This is actually from September 5 2017.

To which my usual response is, "The intelligence report said Russia wants to sow discord. The general attitude is that disinformation from Russia cannot be trusted. But we implicitly trust anything that those who are so pro-Trump say that's obviously so anti-Trump, while implicitly distrusting anything they say that's pro-Trump. We don't evaluate their trustworthiness, except against how much they tell us what we want to believe is true."

Isaev just believes the dossier. He cites it. He believes it. Because it's there and it's convenient. It's more of the same, not an independent witness. And Isaev is very much not pro-Trump. He's very much pro-Russia and wants to slap Trump down.

Actually the video is here. ?t=3371

20. I think everyone, including the russians, are finding out that rump in reality is a joke and ...

laughing stock of the world. You're better off dealing with someone who at least has some knowledge of the issues and such, in order to accomplish anything.
