    Actually, since my working theory was always that Trump is Putin's little bitch, it doesn't destroy anything at all.

    I see you finally took a couple minutes to digest what the article is actually saying. Excellent.

His investigations related to Mr. Trump were initially funded by groups and donors supporting Republican opponents of Mr. Trump during the GOP primaries, multiple sources confirmed to CNN. Those sources also said that once Mr. Trump became the nominee, further investigation was funded by groups and donors supporting Hillary Clinton"


    Sooooo... the report being mentioned by CNN was paid for by Trump's Republican and Democrat opposition, and not the result of an independent CIA operation?

    Get bent, CNN.
    Seems to me CNN went with a full disclosure here. Why are you complaining about them?

    Because they wait until paragraph 15 to disclose that these accusations are not the product of independent investigation by the FBI and CIA but rather was paid for by Trump political opponents.

    Yeah, that doesn't quite fit.

    The information was collected by a former British Intelligence agent, hired by anti-Trump Republicans doing oppo research.

    It's also been circulated for months among intelligence agencies, journalists and legislators -- of all persuasions. None of them relased it. Buzzfeed finally published their copy of the memo.

    The report may not be real. However, Trump's reaction could cause significant damage to his already troubled nascent administration.

    Get bent, CNN.
    "Get bent" -- for openly stating the source in the 2nd paragraph, so readers can decide whether it's credible?

    The allegations came, in part, from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative, whose past work U.S. intelligence officials consider credible, CNN said.


    Russian hackers claim to have compromising information on Trump - CNN

    Now wut are they up to?
    Trump bragged about grabbing women by the pussy, mocked a disabled reporter and every single time more and more vile **** came out about him, his numbers with the republicans went up. I really wonder if there is any dirt the Russians could possibly have on trump that could ever change the minds of his obviously disgustingly sycophantic following?

    If Putin rolled out footage of trump raping a boy, it's almost as believable that his sheep would join NAMBLA in support rather than change their minds about backing him. All the while bashing everyone who despises such behavior as intolerant homophobes.

    Not really. 2nd paragraph of the article:

    "The allegations were presented in a two-page synopsis that was appended to a report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. The allegations came, in part, from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative, whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible. The FBI is investigating the credibility and accuracy of these allegations, which are based primarily on information from Russian sources, but has not confirmed many essential details in the memos about Mr. Trump."
