https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jan/10/fbi-chief-given-dossier-by-john-mccain-alleging-secret-trump-russia-contacts

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. 

The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant.

The Guardian has not been able to confirm the veracity of the documents’ contents, and the Trump team has consistently denied any hidden contacts with the Russian government.

Trump’s transition team did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but late on Tuesday, Trump tweeted: “FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!” He made no direct reference to the allegations.

An official in the US administration who spoke to the Guardian described the source who wrote the intelligence report as consistently reliable, meticulous and well-informed, with a reputation for having extensive Russian contacts.

Some of the reports – which are dated from 20 June to 20 October last year – also proved to be prescient, predicting events that happened after they were sent.

One report, dated June 2016, claims that the Kremlin has been cultivating, supporting and assisting Trump for at least five years, with the aim of encouraging “splits and divisions in western alliance”.

It claims that Trump had declined “various sweetener real estate deals offered him in Russia” especially in developments linked to the 2018 World Cup finals but that “he and his inner circle have accepted a regular flow of intelligence from the Kremlin, including on his Democratic and other political rivals.”

Most explosively, the report alleges: “FSB has compromised Trump through his activities in Moscow sufficiently to be able to blackmail him.” The president-elect has not responded to the allegations.

Trump is 100% correct.

 

Total political witch hunt and a very obvious diversion from the damning revelations about the sexual habits of the DNC elite.

"Posting fake news now? How sad."

 

Are you saying that McCain didn't present this report? Or that it doesn't say what this article says it does?

Hope they try to stop the inauguration so we can get the war started.

America cannot be fixed politically. War is the best case scenario.

Neither. The information contained was nonsense. It can't be verified and came from outside of the intelligence community.

Nahhhh, Trump just thinks Putin is a top bloke!

Wikileaks is a far more reliable source than this whole Government intelligence outfit.

If it's neither, then I don't think you know what "fake news" means.

I was extrapoling this story into Trump's denial of information provided by his own intelligence sources in the last few weeks. It's probable this most recent information came from similarly entrenched intelligence resources.

buzzfeedben sent a note to some people saying that the allegiations are unverified & vague.

This story has been out for months now. It was supposed to be the "october surprise" but none of the MSM would touch it because nothing could be verified. If you read it, its so absurd. Pizzagate was more credible then it. 

A anon said this on there regarding this currently 

https://i.sli.mg/CYucLp.png

"People are so desperate to bring Trump down that they'll force themselves to believe he hired Russian prosititutes to watch anime and piss on him. The left is so desperate is almost kinda sad"



Wikileaks reported it wasn't an intelligence report, it showed no credibility at all.

Why can't it be verified?

Back in november it came out that people on /pol/ made up the story to fuck with "journalists". The journalist being Rick Wilson. 

When it became public, they were talking about it here

It wasn't government intelligence. 

That's an interesting distinction you're making when government intelligence was ridiculed by you and the horde of Trump supporters on this forum when presented with Russian hacking. Private Intelligence(ex-MI6) was one of the sources on this one.
