BBC claims a second source backs up Trump dossier

BBC correspondent Paul Wood came forward Wednesday to reveal 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," 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.

BBC understands dossier of allegations on Trump based on memos by Christopher Steele, former member of Britain's MI6

Looking more legit that Trump has been a cultivated Russian asset.
Come on, Her Majesties Secret Service type folk and Carl Bernstein...perhaps Walter Cronkite will arise from the dead. Serious street cred.

My Patriotic Duty – To Make As Much Fun Of Trump As I Can

For most progressives, liberal Democrats, and voters with brains, the weeks after the election were a fog of stunned disbelief and self-care (watching cooking shows and Downton Abbey reruns instead of the news). But now we are girding our loins to fight back against Trump, and I’m encouraged by all the ways people are finding to combat this new, admittedly distressing reality.

Do what you can.

“Democracy, freedom and the rule of law are under attack around the world. A rising tide of authoritarian and illiberalism threatens that foundation of the post WWII global era that American diplomats have built and defending since Marshall and Acheson,” the former secretary of State said.

Comey The Commie

Is FBI head Comey in cahoots with Russia too? Sure looks like it.
He knew all this shit since before the election and yesterday invoked his, "I do not comment on ongoing investigations." Well tell that to Hillary Clinton. Tell the American people how you would leave  them with a petty despot. Did you prefer Mike Pence. Tell us or do you fancy yourself a person who knows whats best for the United States.

FULL: Senior Intelligence Officials Testify on Russia Hacking Activities (1/10/2017)

Russia's Role in Election-Year Hacking Director of National Intelligence James Clapper was joined by the heads of the FBI, CIA, and the National Security Agency in testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on their collective investigation and findings on Russian influence in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The men reiterated many of the points made in their unclassified report on Russia’s influence, including their conclusion that Russian President Vladimir Putin was directly involved. In his first congressional appearance since the election, FBI Director James Comey faced sharp questioning on whether his agency was investigating potential connections between either of the presidential campaigns and Russian officials, and he said he couldn’t comment on whether or not such an investigation was ongoing.
