18 Karat Reggae has been saying that Donald Trump has some skeletons in his closet and we have been saying it even before the real estate mogul won the United States presidency. Now it turns out that the Russians have a key to Trump’s closet and it could be opened any day now.
Classified documents presented last week to President-elect Donald Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising information about him.
The allegations were in a two-page synopsis appended to a report presented by U.S. intelligence officials to Trump and President Barack Obama on Russian interference in the 2016 election, CNN said, citing multiple U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the briefings.
The allegations came, in part, from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative, whose past work U.S. intelligence officials consider credible.
It said 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 Trump.
Allegations that Russia attempted to compromise New York real estate businessman Trump have been circulating in Washington for months, and they were presented to U.S. officials last year.
The warning to Trump, however, coincides with growing concern about what Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has called a “multifaceted” Russian influence and espionage campaign in Europe and the United States.
In addition to hacking computer networks and spreading propaganda and fake news, it includes efforts to cultivate business and political leaders and find compromising personal, financial or other information on persons of interest, U.S. intelligence officials said.
The classified briefings last week were presented by Clapper, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers.
