Sounds like a plot line from The Good Shepherd.

Example - He went to Russia for some high-priced nookie, or something along those lines, and the KGB/Russian Secret Police secretly recorded all of it. They probably goaded him into making some financial investments or whatnot.

So, they got a hold of him and blackmailed him throughout the election - do what we tell you to do or we send this to Wikileaks.

Trump is untouchable. Nothing will be done and it will all be forgotten by the time of his inauguration. His scandals are so commonplace that people will ignore or won't care.

They interrupted Jeff Sessions confirmation hearing for like 10 minutes to talk about it. Yeah, still CNN but they've made a big enough deal of it that it seems likely there's something to it.

The Intel Chiefs showed Trump they suspect Russians have dirt on him, and on top of that they're probably already using it to manipulate him.

The rumors generally involve Russia in nature. Also hookers. Either and orgy, under-aged, some weird race thing, or some other kind of nastiness. No one had the tape so it never became more than just a rumor though.

I wish we could, but short of throwing Trump and his entire administration in jail and rerunning the election there's nothing to be done.

Classified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.

He won't. He will just tweet at 3am to make a distraction. Tomorrow he has a bunch of hearings for his cabinet picks.

Hillary will never be President.

It will either be Pence, Paul Ryan, or someone else Congress elects (read: Republican).

According to the article Comey had it since at least August. McCain on the other hand gave it to the FBI the second he had the info.

Unless the CIA comes forward and reveals all their sources and all their proof, nothing will happen.

'SAYING' this stuff happened is pointless. They're going to have to name names and get people on record. THEN, they'll have to put them on trial, and get them to contradict themselves against physical evidence - OR- confess for lesser punishment.

Otherwise, this will be looked at as nothing but a circumstantial smear campaign, which is exactly what I expect Trump to Tweet about at 3AM tonight.

I would be amazed if they impeached Trump and then Pence also got the boot. Pence is 100% their team so besides fewer issues with Pence legally, they aren't going to go after him.

FWIW 've read rumors that Russians videotaped Trump doing bad things on his many trips to Russia.

Doesn't mean anything except this is standard KGB procedure so it's believable.

They tried with Clinton as well but she was warned in advance that everything will be monitored.

It all depends. I mean damn near every single person Trump has appointed is the definition of the worst person for the job, and if that was part of this "blackmail," then they are all compromised - Pence included.

CNN has reviewed a 35-page compilation of the memos, from which the two-page synopsis was drawn. The memos originated as opposition research, first commissioned by anti-Trump Republicans, and later by Democrats. At this point, CNN is not reporting on details of the memos, as it has not independently corroborated the specific allegations. But, in preparing this story, CNN has spoken to multiple high ranking intelligence, administration, congressional and law enforcement officials, as well as foreign officials and others in the private sector with direct knowledge of the memos.

At this point...

A tantalising morsel CNN has left there.

I have trouble understanding the article.

The Intelligence Chief presented Trump evidence that Russia has tried to compromise him...is..that a bad thing for Trump? Or are you solely focusing on the fact there has been communication between the Trump camp and Russia? Just trying to fully understand the situation.
