Here Is The Full 35-Page Report Alleging Trump Was "Cultivated, Supported And Assisted" By Russia

by Tyler Durden
Jan 10, 2017 8:23 PM

As reported moments ago, CNN is leading with a story about a 35-page dossier compiled by a former member of British intelligence, which had been distilled into a 2-page appendix presented to Trump last Friday by the US intel community, and which contains "explosive, but unverified, allegations" that the Russian government has been "cultivating, supporting and assisting" President-elect Donald Trump for at least 5 years and "endorsed by Putin" gained compromising information about him, with the aim of "encouraging splits and divisions in the western alliance."

The memo has allegedly been circulating among elected officials, intelligence agents, and journalists for weeks.

However, where the first warning flags should go off, is that the operative collected the information from Russian intelligence sources while he was doing opposition research for a project financed by anti-Trump Republicans. The information the operative collected indicated that Russia had compromising information both Trump and Clinton but chose to release information that was potentially damaging only to the Clinton campaign.

The dossier, which is a collection of memos written over a period of months, "includes specific, unverified and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians" according to Buzzfeed.
 
The worst part of is that Russia most likely gathered compromising material on Trump and his family from Trump's computer, and Trump will dance to Putin's music soon. Russia will run America for at least 4 years.
This is so unprecedented (pan intended) that this election should be canceled and new one called in a year, and campaigns restarted right away.
 
All nations do it................remember USA hacked into Merkel and other German ministers recently !

Remember Russia hacked into USA elections in 2008 to "allow" Obama to win

The 3 biggest hackers from government directions against others are ...............China , USA and Russia

The point is that the people's vote was not hacked , the machines for counting are correct ...............people must realise that Trump destroyed Clinton in the vote, the hacking made little difference to the end result ..........best for the Democrats to stop these excuses and stop the whining and find a new direction

You do have a good point however I'm not sure how the Russian hacking excuse is any different then Trump repeatedly saying that "The election is rigged". :/ But anyhow, there is no use in crying over spilled milk. If Trump does a good job in the White House then he'll be living there for another 4 years. If Trump does a bad job then he could get voted out in 2020.

you know what has been said about this yesterday
we'll probably never know the truth
but the media made a big mistake bringing this as if it were the truth
and as if hacking didn't happen before

Or impeachment.
 
Was there a leak about Russians know sexual fetish of Trump, or something like that? Is this what Trump called a fake news yesterday?
I'm missing something.

Defense nominee Mattis emerges with strong support

By Tal Kopan, CNN
Updated 2029 GMT (0429 HKT) January 12, 2017

Washington (CNN)President-elect Donald Trump's selection to be defense secretary emerged from his confirmation hearing Thursday with seemingly broad support, after he took a strong posture against Russian President Vladimir Putin and answered tough questions on women and gays in combat.

Ret. Gen. James Mattis also cleared one early procedural hurdle in his confirmation as the Senate voted overwhelmingly in favor of giving him a waiver to a law barring military officials from becoming defense secretary within seven years of their military service.

The Senate's 81-17 vote, following the Senate Armed Services Committee's bipartisan 24-3 vote, also signaled Mattis would likely face little opposition to his confirmation.
Much of Mattis' hearing focused on areas where Trump and Mattis might diverge in views.
At the top of the hearing, Mattis took a hard stance against Russia and Putin in answering a question from anti-Russia hawk, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain.
The topic has been one of the greatest sources of Republican criticism of President-elect Donald Trump, who has repeatedly spoken favorably about Putin and for months denied Russia's role in a hacking and misinformation campaign designed to influence the election.
"I've watched three presidents commit themselves to new relationships with Vladimir Putin. All three have been an abysmal failure," McCain said, asking Mattis what he would do.
"I think right now the most important thing is that we recognize the reality of what we deal with (in) Mr. Putin," Mattis said. "We recognize that he is trying to break the North Atlantic alliance, and that we take the steps, the integrated steps, diplomatic, economic, military and the alliance steps, working with our allies to defend ourselves where we must."
He identified Russian aggression, terrorism and Chinese actions in the South China Sea as the biggest security issues since WWII.
"I think deterrence is critical right now, sir, absolutely, and that requires a strong military," Mattis said, arguing that the US military is not robust enough right now.
He answered similar questions about Moscow from the top Democrat on the committee, Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island.
"I'm all for engagement, but we also have to recognize reality and what Russia is up to," Mattis said. "There's a decreasing number of areas where we can engage cooperatively and an increasing number of areas where we're going to have to confront Russia."
The topic of NATO was also raised by multiple senators. On the campaign trail, Trump indicated he may reconsider aspects of the US alliance with NATO, alarming lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
Mattis, a former supreme allied commander of NATO, voiced unequivocal support for the alliance and said he had said as much to Trump.
"NATO, from my perspective ... is the most successful military alliance certainly in modern world history, probably ever," Mattis said. "I have had discussions with him on this issue. He has shown himself open, even to the point of asking more questions and going deeper into the issue about why I feel so strongly."

[h=1]5 Top Moments From Rex Tillerson's Hearing To Be Secretary Of State[/h]



January 11, 20179:12 AM ET

Jessica Taylor





Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson had a tense confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday, clashing even with Republican members over his views on Russia, international human rights violations and the lobbying and deal-making of Exxon Mobil when he was CEO.The 64-year-old was an unconventional pick for President-elect Donald Trump, having no former government service but plenty of international business experience. It's that work with foreign governments, particularly Russia, that's come under scrutiny. In 2013, the Kremlin awarded Tillerson the Russian "Order of Friendship."
Predictably, many of the committee's questions had to do with Tillerson's views on how he would deal with Russia. Trump has expressed unusual admiration for the country and its president, Vladimir Putin, and openly desired a better relationship, even as U.S. intelligence has found that the country engaged in cyberattacks to meddle in the U.S. elections.
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., had particularly sharp questions for Tillerson and sounded at times like he could be leaning toward opposing Tillerson's nomination. At several points during Tillerson's testimony, committee Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., interjected to try to help clarify his answers.
Here are top moments from the nine-hour hearing:

[h=5]1. Rubio vs. Tillerson on Russia, Putin[/h] Aggressively pushed by Rubio in his initial round of questioning, Tillerson wouldn't label Putin as a war criminal over the Russian military's alleged involvement in the Syrian civil war in targeting and killing civilians.
"Those are very, very serious charges to make and I'd want to have much more information before reaching that conclusion," Tillerson said. He also wouldn't say whether he believes the Kremlin is behind the killing of journalists and Putin critics, saying he would need to see more classified information to make a determination.
In a second round, Rubio pushed him on whether he viewed the Philippines and its president, Rodrigo Duterte, as human rights violators, but Tillerson dismissed news reports on atrocities there and in Saudi Arabia and its treatment of women. Citing his background as an engineer, Tillerson pushed back, saying he would simply need more information to make such a broad pronouncement and that, "I'm going to act on factual information. I'm not going to act on what people write about in the newspapers."
"My interests are the same as yours. Our interests are not different, senator," Tillerson told Rubio. "There seems to be some misunderstanding that I see the world through a different lens. I do not. I share all the same values you share and want the same things, the world over, in terms of freedom."

[h=5]2. Breaks with Trump on Russia, intelligence[/h] But overall, Tillerson still sounded a more hawkish tone against Russia than the incoming commander in chief he would serve.
"We aren't likely to ever be friends. ... Our value systems are starkly different," Tillerson said of Russia, adding that, "we need to move Russia from being an adversary always to being a partner sometimes."
The idea that Tillerson was in a unique position to be an intermediary to the country and smooth over relations, while also projecting U.S. strength and ideals, was something that witnesses speaking in support of his confirmation told the committee in introductory remarks. Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, who served in both the George W. Bush and Obama administrations, called Tillerson the "right person at the right time" to work on U.S.-Russia relations. Former Sen. Sam Nunn, D-Ga., an advocate of nuclear nonproliferation, said Tillerson's past business relationships with Russia and with Putin were "assets, not liabilities."
Tillerson also sounded a different tone from Trump on how he would have dealt with Russian aggression into Crimea.
"That was a taking of territory that was not theirs," Tillerson said, adding that he would have recommended that Ukraine use its military assets to line up along the eastern border and that the U.S. and NATO should have also helped with supplies and air surveillance. Russia would have understood and responded to such a "powerful response," Tillerson said.
Asked whether he believed U.S. intelligence reports that Russia was involved in cyberattacks intended to meddle in the U.S. elections, Tillerson said he had not seen the classified information but that the public report "clearly is troubling." He said it was a "fair assumption" that Putin was directly involved.

[h=5]3. Tillerson opposes Muslim ban, supports TPP [/h] There were two more big breaks from Tillerson with his future boss. When asked about a potential ban on Muslims coming into the U.S., which Trump proposed during the campaign, Tillerson said he did "not support a blanket-type rejection of any particular group of people." And he also rejected the idea of any type of registry of Muslims in the U.S. too, saying, "[You] would need to have a lot more information on how such an approach would even be constructed."
He also said he didn't oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, which Trump frequently railed against on the campaign trail and has pledged to abandon. On the Paris climate accord, Tillerson said the U.S. would be "better served by being at that table than leaving that table"; Trump has said he would pull the deal.

[h=5]4. Tillerson's muddled positions on sanctions and Exxon Mobil's lobbying[/h] The would-be chief diplomat was pressed multiple times on whether he believed in the efficacy of sanctions, especially when it came to Russia. As with Crimea, he said he believed there needed to be additional consequences, backing some type of military action along the border.
But he also said that "[when sanctions] are imposed, they, by their design, are going to harm American businesses," although he did admit that they could be a "powerful and important tool."
He said that at Exxon he had never personally lobbied against sanctions and that the oil company "to my knowledge" had never "directly lobbied" against sanctions. However, Politico reported last month that Exxon Mobil had in fact lobbied against a bill that would have made it harder for Trump to lift sanctions against Russia.
After that admission, Democrats entered into the record evidence of the oil company's registration to lobby on the sanctions, but Tillerson maintained he still had no knowledge of the actions.
"Were we lobbying for the sanctions or lobbying against the sanctions?" he asked Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., during one line of questioning.
"I know you weren't lobbying for the sanctions," Menendez replied, incredulously.
Tillerson later said that the company had "participated in understanding how the sanctions are going to be constructed" in Russia, and his former company later tweeted out a statement to back that up.

On other issues of what Exxon Mobil had engaged in — a company where he worked for 40 years — Tillerson also said he didn't recall whether it had done business with Iran, Syria and Sudan.

[h=5]5. Climate change[/h] Tillerson also expressed his belief in climate change, but he wouldn't answer whether he believed humans were contributing to it.
"The risk of climate change does exist and the consequences of it could be serious enough that action should be taken," Tillerson said. But asked by Corker whether it was worsened by human activity, Tillerson demurred, saying that "the increase in the greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere are having an effect" but that the "ability to predict that effect is very limited."
Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., his party's nominee for vice president against Trump, also pushed Tillerson on reports that Exxon Mobil had misled the public over climate change. Tillerson initially dodged, but Kaine pushed on: "Do you lack the knowledge to answer my question or are you refusing to answer my question?"
"A little of both," Tillerson quipped.

What does Trump plan to do with the hate crimes going on in America? If protests are going to be going on for days on end; like Kiro7 is saying, then we are in for some broken windows and vandalism of Mosques. So many dollars in damages for one President.

We'll see. I'm not sure how he will address it if ever. For now Trump scares financial markets. Trump sneezed (one tweet) today and Dollar went down a cent. Forget about Market Fundamentals, Trump moves Markets with his tweets.

Well Putin did not raise the oil prices, as conspiracy masters rumors spread
Neither Madonna kept her promises,
and neither moved to Canada,
and stock exchange did not collapse,
and US $, raise

So search the conspiracies elsewhere, like the old 'alliance' conspiracy push by a sertain foundation at 2004,
who's leader already lost 1,5 billion $ and is expected to lose more than 20 billion in next 4 years,

bye bye George,
I do not believe someone will cry for you,
except the proffessional money vultures,
