Russia has been ‘cultivating’ Trump for at least five years
Speaking to a trusted compatriot in June 2016 sources A and B – a senior Russian foreign ministry figure and a former top level Russian intelligence officer still active inside the Kremlin respectively – the Russian authorities had been cultivating and supporting US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for at least 5 years. Source asserted that the Trump operation was both supported and directed by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
COMMENT: Although the former intelligence official who put together the report is said to have extensive contacts in the Russian security apparatus – no evidence of this has been made public.
Trump was ‘compromised’ through his sexual activities in Moscow
Former top Russian intelligence officer claims FSB [Russian security service] has compromised Trump through his activities in Moscow sufficiently to be able to blackmail him.
According to several knowledgeable sources his conduct in Moscow has included perverted sexual acts which have been arranged/monitored by the FSB.
This aspect of the allegations seems at once one of the most salacious and the hardest to verify independently.
It seems unlikely anyone in a position of power would engage in such activity given the likelihood the FSB would be monitoring his movements but it would also be particularly compromising for that reason.
