The allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors.

A dossier making explosive — but unverified — allegations that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” President-elect Donald Trump for years and gained compromising information about him has been circulating among elected officials, intelligence agents, and journalists for weeks.

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. BuzzFeed News reporters in the US and Europe have been investigating various alleged facts in the dossier but have not verified or falsified them. CNN reported Tuesday that a two-page synopsis of the report was given to President Obama and Trump.

Now BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.

The document was prepared for political opponents of Trump by a person who is understood to be a former British intelligence agent. It is not just unconfirmed: It includes some clear errors. The report misspells the name of one company, “Alpha Group,” throughout. It is Alfa Group. The report says the settlement of Barvikha, outside Moscow, is “reserved for the residences of the top leadership and their close associates.” It is not reserved for anyone, and it is also populated by the very wealthy.

The Trump administration’s transition team did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News’ request for comment. However, the president-elect’s attorney, Michael Cohen, told Mic that the allegations were absolutely false.

“It’s so ridiculous on so many levels,” he said. “Clearly, the person who created this did so from their imagination or did so hoping that the liberal media would run with this fake story for whatever rationale they might have.”

And Trump shot back against the reports a short time later on Twitter.

His former campaign manager and current senior White House adviser, Kellyanne Conway, also denied the claims during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, adding that “nothing has been confirmed.” She also said Trump was “not aware” of any briefing on the matter.

The documents have circulated for months and acquired a kind of legendary status among journalists, lawmakers, and intelligence officials who have seen them. Mother Jones writer David Corn referred to the documents in a late October column. BuzzFeed News reporters in the US and Europe have been investigating various alleged facts in the dossier but have not stood them up or knocked them down.

Harry Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson tweeted Tuesday that the former Senate Democratic leader had seen the documents before writing a public letter to FBI Director James Comey about Trump’s ties to Russia. And CNN reported Tuesday that Arizona Republican John McCain gave a “full copy” of the memos to Comey on Dec. 9, but that the FBI already had copies of many of the memos.

“It’s so ridiculous on so many levels,” he said. “Clearly, the person who created this did so from their imagination or did so hoping that the liberal media would run with this fake story for whatever rationale they might have.”

and they did..they came in like the tide..

“The document was prepared for political opponents of Trump by a person who is understood to be a former British intelligence agent. It is not just unconfirmed: It includes some clear errors.

so why did you print it?

“BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.”

  1. kek did a good job at 4chan & hoodwinked them ..lol

  2. BuzzFeed crossed the line in publishing salacious ‘dossier’ on Donald Trump

    http://www.smh.com.au/world/buzzfeed-crossed-the-line-in-publishing-salacious-dossier-on-trump-20170111-gtpvkh.html

    Vice columnist Michael Tracey noted that while WikiLeaks had been “relentlessly attacked” for publishing verified, authentic information, BuzzFeed was being “cheered for publishing what appears to be a total sham.”

    And in the New York Post, columnist and longtime magazine editor John Podhoretz made a solid point: “In my experience, there is no source of whom you need to be more skeptical, and whose information you need to verify to the letter before you can even begin to think of publishing it, than an ‘intelligence’ source.”

  3. I was onto this yesterday morning. I was going to share it here but i thought you would know. It was all over twitter.

    Ive said it before; we are watching history. This is the biggest political story for 50 years. Its as big as kennedy. The hate mainstream and political elites on both sides (McCain is a republican and he brags he released this shit!!) for Trump, and how Trump is taking on the establishment (Rand Paul to take on big Pharma) is unprecidented! It cant all be faked! Shit is happening and it is positive to what we all want to see happen. Lets hope Trump doesnt get dead…

  4. Trump has controllers.

    http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/donald-trump-debt-15-billion-higher-estimated

    “A new report by The Wall Street Journal suggests that, when you include businesses in which Trump has at least a 30 percent stake, the president-elect’s companies owe roughly $1.5 billion in additional debt to more than 150 institutions. Most of that debt has been repackaged and purchased by investors.
    His debtors include Wells Fargo & Co, a bank which is under investigation for fraudulent practices…”

    Follow the money, right?

  5. What do you think of this article? Lots of connections.

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2017/1/9/1618540/-Was-Donald-Trump-bailed-out-of-bankruptcy-by-Russia-crime-bosses

    “Trump speaks at Trump Soho, built in partnership with Bayrock

    In 2008, Donald Trump Jr. attended a real estate conference, where he stated that, “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

    As it turns out, that may have been an understatement. Human rights lawyer Scott Horton, whose work in the region goes back to defending Andrei Sakharov and other Soviet dissidents, has gone through a series of studies by the Financial Times to show how funds from Russian crime lords bailed Trump out after yet anther bankruptcy. The conclusions are stark….

    Why would Trump’s organization make such a good means of laundering funds? Because real estate has an arbitrary value. Is that apartment worth $1 million? Two million? Why not $3 million for a buyer who really wants it? When the whole transaction is just one LLC with undisclosed ownership paying another LLC with undisclosed ownership, it’s even neater than hiding the money in an offshore account….

    For example, the actual owners of the Trump Soho were another limited liability company, Bayrock….

    In a 2011 deposition, given in a dispute over the Fort Lauderdale project, Mr Trump said he had “never really understood who owned Bayrock”. Jody Kriss, a former Bayrock finance director, has claimed in racketeering lawsuits against his former employer that Bayrock’s backers included “hidden interests in Russia and Kazakhstan”.”

    • kos = cia

      • I have no reason to doubt what you say. How do you arrive at that conclusion? That is interesting.

        I had not come across anything else like these articles on the internet until this morning I stumbled across them, and did not know what to make of them.

        The other two articles have Trump in debt which would make him easy to manipulate. This CIA article goes along that same theme of Trump in debt to others and the article goes further in naming specifics. Those specifics though may be fabricated by the CIA for an agenda to hurt Trump and keep the Russian tie meme going.

      • I looked on the internet. Lots of info on kos=CIA. I am probably asking too much of you xxx to show the relationship. Sorry about that.

        The better understanding is the propaganda behind the CIA sustaining a meme of the Trump-Russian connection. That shift in the political consciousness is happening. There are all these superficial connections it appears, like the Russian hacking, the fake news on Trump party members in Prague, and so forth. U.S. tanks in Germany and maybe moving into Poland. There are people who definitely want this conscious shift in politics to take place. We know Soros wants an EU, though it currently is failing. Having an enemy does usually make some people run into the collective agenda. Might that be the only need of Russia, which is a need for an enemy for some collective agenda by some people who desire outcomes like a Soros who really wants some kind of EU. maybe…

        Thanks xxx for pointing out kos=cia

  6. coincidence? maybe, maybe not…

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/danalexander/2017/01/09/russian-billionaires-including-some-tied-to-putin-have-gained-29-billion-since-trumps-election/#f652f5f7b204

    “Russia’s richest men, some of whom have close ties to President Vladimir Putin, have gained $29 billion since the election of Donald Trump, thanks to the rising value of Russian stocks and currency….

    Altogether, Russia’s billionaires have added an estimated $29 billion since Trump’s election, more than the combined gains of billionaires in any country besides the United States. Forbes counts more than six times as many American billionaires as Russian billionaires. While the Americans have boosted their net worth by an average of 2.8% since the election, the richest Russians have increased their fortunes by an average of 7.1%.”

  7. When I heard him laugh after saying “You’re fired” (at about the 24 second mark) live at the Press Conference, my first thought was an old man putting on a con show.

  8. BuzzFeed was wrong to publish the Trump rumours. Here’s why

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jan/12/buzzfeed-was-wrong-to-publish-the-trump-rumours-heres-why?google_editors_picks=true

  9. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/public-safety/commanding-general-of-dc-national-guard-to-be-removed-from-post/2017/01/13/725a0438-d99e-11e6-b8b2-cb5164beba6b_story.html?utm_term=.4bf5a6dd3192

  10. Glenn Greenwald- right as usual. The Deep State has always existed.. the Deep State is now in play

    • Democrats, still reeling from their unexpected and traumatic election loss as well as a systemic collapse of their party, seemingly divorced further and further from reason with each passing day, are willing — eager — to embrace any claim, cheer any tactic, align with any villain, regardless of how unsupported, tawdry and damaging those behaviors might be. Greenwald told Tucker Carlson that there are Democrats hoping that an “unelected faction in Washington will undermine and subvert and destroy the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s presidency” before he even takes office. He argued why elements of the intel community would oppose Trump and view him as a threat, recalling Dwight Eisenhower‘s famous warning about the military-industrial complex. And one of the big problems, Greenwald said, is how the media treats allegations from the intel community. He said there is an “institutional fear of challenging or questioning people who have medals on their chests,” either out of fear of looking unpatriotic or losing access.

  11. http://anotherdayintheempire.com/trump-recruits-another-goldman-sachs-bankster/

    • Donald Trump has announced another Goldman Sachs insider will join his administration.

      Anthony Scaramucci, also know as “The Mooch,” will serve as Donald Trump’s liaison to the financial class. The former hedge fund ringmaster will likely occupy Valerie Jarrett’s Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs.

      Steve Bannon, Steven Mnuchin (who will head up the Treasury), Gary Cohn, and Jay Clayton worked for Goldman Sachs.

      How is the anti-establishment establishment supposed to fulfill its promise to restore the economy if its top people are former banksters and hedge fund managers?

      How are guys associated with a firm that packaged and sold toxic securities while betting they would fail and screw over investors good for America? How in the hell are they anti-establishment?
