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.

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."

I am by no means defending Trumpleforeskin but the article consisted mostly of allegations and nothing concrete. It was also funded by folks opposing him and while that doesnt make the info a lie it will cast a shadow over it in many peoples eyes. I hope something comes of this, if it doesnt this just gives more fuel to the fire of "big media spin".

So they do have dirt on him.

 

They're keeping it until a time when he is no longer useful to Russia. Then they'll release it as an attack on him as president, and I'll be forced to defend Trump against a Russian attack on the sitting US President. 

 

 

 

DAMN YOU RUSSIA

So basically we have a President Elect who is compromised due to shady financial dealings... If the Russians do have shit on Trump, whats to stop them from releasing it after his inauguration in order to further undermine our faith in our government.

 

Seeing it from their side, it's easier to hang on to the info and use it as a stick to get what they want out of Trump. 

 

For example, if they want no more NATO troops training in Estonia, they send that message through the Trump/Moscow backchannels (Carter Paige, maybe?) and threaten to release the information damning Trump unless he complies. 

 

 

Now, maybe it's information that isn't that bad in Trump's eyes. But again, he's a public perception guy. For all we know, it could be that Trump funded Vlad Putin's 2012 presidential campaign and that the GRU has photos of Trump without his wig on. I think the second one would get Trump's attention more than the first.

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.

 

So the reason this has probably leaked is because the CIA  and others want Trump to know that they know.

To be clear though, none of this has been independently confirmed by intelligence agencies, as of yet. The US intelligence agencies believe the author to be credible, but that doesn't necessarily mean his info is accurate. 

 

Accepting this as truth without reservation would be like the Trump supporters accepting that Clinton was involved in a child-sex ring. This does have a bit more weight than those fake news stories, but we can't treat it as fact.

And with Russian intelligence, we've seen that it doesn't have to be INACCURATE to be discounted. 

 

 

It will be lapped up if they so choose to release it.
