Trump Gets Tabloid Treatment

DID YOU hear?

It’s scandalous.

Rumors and innuendo that’s been swirling for weeks.

…and BuzzFeed published it.

Maybe because FBI Director James Comey wouldn’t dare talk about such unsubstantiated rumors in public.

Right.

I mean, really, “sex parties”? It’s just so deliciously salacious and right before Mr. Trump’s presser today.

From CNN, who had Carl Bernstein on last night spinning the wildest tale that included Senator John McCain at the center.

(CNN) Classified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.

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.

The classified briefings last week were presented by four of the senior-most US intelligence chiefs — Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers.

As I’ve been saying since DJT won the election. Wait and watch, because whether it’s his business dealings or extracurricular activities, it’s only a matter of time before President-elect Donald Trump is caught up by his own greed and arrogance, his web of conflicts of interest or something so outrageous that if I wrote a novel with this story line I’d be called crazy by readers.

Take heart, my fellow Americans.

The U.S. intelligence agencies just guaranteed that Mr. Trump’s going to be very busy in his first term in office and it won’t just be trying to get Republicans in Congress to replace Obamacare after they repeal it.

God’s speed, James Clapper. You have more than made up for that brain freeze in front of Congress.
