Russians talked about potentially 'derogatory' information on Trump, associates

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence did not return CNN's requests for comment, while the Federal Bureau of Investigation declined to comment.

The US intelligence agents said the monitored conversations suggested to them that the Russians believed "they had the ability to influence the administration through the derogatory information", CNN reported citing sources in the US spy community.

"The Russians could be overstating their belief to influence", a source told CNN. The source said the intercepted communications suggested to USA intelligence that Russians believed "they had the ability to influence the administration through the derogatory information".

Now this could of course be disinformation, created to be intercepted, but when you pair this with the very real influence that the Russians had over Michael Flynn and potentially other members of the Trump team, you end up with a picture that looks pretty damning. Yes, hold on to your hats, ladies and gentlemen, the leftist activists disguised as journalists have discovered that Russian officials bragged they had "derogatory" information on Trump and his associates! One said that the American names were all masked in the intelligence report, but that the larger substance of the conversation was about the Trump campaign.

Deron Williams , who had been quiet for most of the series, also got in on the act with a series-best 14 points for Cleveland . He showed no signs of lingering issues, though, beating several defenders off the dribble and handing out seven assists.


A White House spokesman, earlier to CNN, offered a longer dismissal.

"This is yet another round of false and unverified claims made by anonymous sources to smear the President", the spokesperson said.

Despite denials, Trump is known to have had significant business links and dealings with the Russians in the past. However, during the transition period, United States intelligence agencies were already concluding that Russian Federation had tried to interfere with the U.S. elections by favouring the Trump campaign.

An anonymous White House spokesperson released a statement blasting the report, asserting that Trump had no financial ties to Russian Federation to begin with. It remains unclear why under the circumstances President Trump's closest advisor would meet with a Kremlin-linked banker and the Russian Ambassador, Mr. Kislyak. The dossier also contained the infamous "golden shower" allegation that the Russians have a tape showing Trump watching Russian prostitutes engaged in indecent activities with their body fluids in a Russian hotel room.
