Anti-Trump Republicans solicited an anonymous former MI6 spook to compile a dossier on Herr T’s relationship to Russia; disaffected disgruntled Ds later joined the hunt. Boy, howdy, did said spook report on T’s deep ties, sexual escapades (‘sexcapades’) with hookers he’d hired to piss on the bed that POTUS and FLOTUS once used. In addition:‘Moscow had been cultivating, supporting and assisting Trump for 5 years and had collected material that could be used to blackmail him’. So the brilliant Mr. T, offered to stay outta Russia’s bidness in Ukraine if the Rooskies wouldn’t nail his ass to the wall. Or something.
It was only a coincidence that the Pulp Fiction was publish just ahead of Mr. T’s first scheduled press conference as Prez-elect. What do you think the questions will be about?
Our old buddy John Bomb-Iran McCrankypants ‘received’ the document and gave it to James Comey back at the start of December, who…sat on it.
A two-page summary was given to the Gang of Eight who…well, who knows what they did with it?
But let’s see. CNN is reporting on the gist of it, but hadn’t published either version, (although th3 alleged ‘2 page summary’ seems to be quite elusive), which seems to have given Buzzfeed (on the approved media list, as the are ‘NotProp’, got it?
Hmmmm. Buzzfeed notes that none of the report has actually been verified, and it does contain some ‘factual errors’, but goddammit, people have a right to know and make up their own goddam minds, don’t they? (Subtext: if the Prez-elect is guilty of treason!!…)
But wait! It gets more surreal! His former campaign manager and current senior White House adviser, Kellyanne Conway, denied the claims during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers, adding that “nothing has been confirmed.” She also said Trump was “not aware” of any briefing on the matter.
But fear not; it’s all true. The joint intel agencies have most thoroughly investigated the UK spook, and have found him utterly credible and reliable. They note that: he even has his own private intelligency agency now!
Predictably, the smut has taken center stage compared to…that other stuff.
(wsws.org has more…er…rational…coverage of the “story”.)
On edit: this is supposed to add verisimilitude to the Truth of the dossier, lol:
‘Former MI6 officer Christopher Steele, who produced Donald Trump Russian dossier, ‘terrified for his safety’ and went to ground before name released’ the Telegraph
