Előző írásom kapcsán Alkibiadész megjegyezte:
Csak egy igazán katasztrofális dolog történhetne: mint JFK-vel….ilyen, ha az elnök tengelyt akaszt a szakszolgálatokkal.
Nem ilyesmire gondoltam, hanem arra, ami most kezd körvonalazódni. Nincs időm most ezzel bővebben foglalkozni – aludni is kell -, de a lényeget idevágom, aztán majd meglátjuk, mit hoz a holnap.
Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him
By Evan Perez, Jim Sciutto, Jake Tapper and Carl Bernstein, CNN

(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. (…)
Some of the memos were circulating as far back as last summer. What has changed since then is that US intelligence agencies have now checked out the former British intelligence operative and his vast network throughout Europe and find him and his sources to be credible enough to include some of the information in the presentations to the President and President-elect a few days ago.
On the same day that the President-elect was briefed by the intelligence community, the top four Congressional leaders, and chairmen and ranking members of the House and Senate intelligence committees — the so-called “Gang of Eight” — were also provided a summary of the memos regarding Mr. Trump, according to law enforcement, intelligence and administration sources. (…)
CNN has also learned that on December 9, Senator John McCain gave a full copy of the memos — dated from June through December, 2016 — to FBI Director James Comey. McCain became aware of the memos from a former British diplomat who had been posted in Moscow. But the FBI had already been given a set of the memos compiled up to August 2016, when the former MI6 agent presented them to an FBI official in Rome, according to national security officials.
The raw memos on which the synopsis is based were prepared by the former MI6 agent, who was posted in Russia in the 1990s and now runs a private intelligence gathering firm. 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.

Senate Intelligence Committee Member Suggests FBI Is Sitting on Information on Trump-Russia Ties
At a hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden pushed FBI Director James Comey to release it by Inauguration Day.

Ez Michael T. Flynn tábornokot, Trump nemzetbiztonsági tanácsadóját kompromittálja súlyosan:
It was June 2013, a briefly optimistic moment for both the Americans and Russians, and Mr. Flynn hoped to take advantage of it. During the trip, he met with the chief of the Russian military intelligence unit known as the G.R.U. — the same agency that has since been implicated in interference in the 2016 presidential election — and held an hourlong discussion with midranking officers at its headquarters.
Even then, though, Mr. Flynn pushed to maintain a dialogue with Russian military intelligence. In early March 2014, when he headed the Defense Intelligence Agency and American officials were weighing sanctions, he was making plans to meet with Russian officials later that month. When his superiors found out about his plans, they ordered the meeting canceled.
He even returned to Moscow in 2015, a year after he was forced into retirement from the Defense Intelligence Agency, to give a paid speech for RT, the Russian English-language news organization, which American intelligence agencies have deemed a propaganda tool in the Russian election-meddling.
During that trip he also tried repeatedly to meet officers at the C.I.A’s station in Moscow — housed inside the American Embassy — to press for closer ties with Russia’s spies. But C.I.A. officers in Moscow, who have an adversarial relationship with Russia, declined to meet with him.
A “bizalmas memo”-bombát közben lényegében hatástalanították. Úgyhogy talán mégis Gideon Rachmannak, a Financial Times geopolitikai kommentátorának van igaza, aki szerint (a cikket nem linkelhetem, mert az FT fizetős):
Donald Trump will win his battle with the spies
