Per a new report from CNN, intelligence officials presented classified briefings to President Obama and President-elect Trump alleging that Russian agents have compromising information regarding the latter. While the account is serious enough to merit consideration, one can’t help wonder, as Matt Drudge does, if it’s not the Russians doing the blackmailing but corrupt operatives in the American intelligence community who are still trying to derail Trump’s presidency:
“According to the report, the chairmen of the House and Senate intelligence committees and the top four Congressional leaders also received the classified summaries of the presented memos.
The document was presented as an appendix to the intelligence community’s report on the alleged Russian interference in the presidential election.
According to the report, the allegations included in the briefing were not a product of the U.S. intelligence agencies but came from memos that originated as opposition research, first commissioned by anti-Trump Republicans, and later by Democrats.
CNN did not state what was included in the memos, as it reported it was unable to corroborate their claims. It did say that the contents of the memos are circulating among U.S. intelligence officials and lawmakers with jurisdiction over the community.”
