Crickets around here lately. So what do you all think now ? Is the Trump Russia collusion a big hoax or not? Some very dirty stuff was going on at the DNC/Clinton camp with the help of DOJ/FBI.battlingignorance wrote: And further....
The BBC revealed on Wednesday that there are multiple intelligence sources alleging Russia is in possession of potentially embarrassing or compromising material regarding President-elect Donald Trump. Formerly, only a single source was known to have been aware of the alleged material.
"I saw the report, compiled by the former British intelligence officer, back in October," Correspondent Paul Wood said. "He is not, and this is the crucial thing, the only source for this.” The Wall Street Journal alleges the British source is Christopher Steele, a director of the London-based Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd.
A member of the U.S. intelligence community also told Wood that "at least one East European intelligence service was aware 'that the Russians had kompromat or compromising material on Mr. Trump,'" Raw Story reports. Wood said that he "got a message back" from the U.S. intelligence community member and that there is reportedly "more than one tape, not just video, but audio as well, on more than one date, in more than one place, in both Moscow and St. Petersburg."
Wood did add, however, that "nobody should believe something just because an intelligence agent says it."
Know that the BBC (being publicly owned and funded) is subject to some very strict regulation on impartiality and bias, and there are very serious consequences to them lying. So, while they can still get things wrong, I'm far more inclined to believe them vs. any other media outlet in the world... including much of the UK press (which is owned by Murdoch, just like much of the US media).
