    Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him

    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 r. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.

    The allegations were presented in a two-page synopsis that was appended to a report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. The allegations came, in part, from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative, whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible. The FBI is investigating the credibility and accuracy of these allegations, which are based primarily on information from Russian sources, but has not confirmed many essential details in the memos about Mr. Trump.

    These senior intelligence officials also included the synopsis to demonstrate that Russia had compiled information potentially harmful to both political parties, but only released information damaging to Hillary Clinton and Democrats. This synopsis was not an official part of the report from the intelligence community case about Russian hacks, but some officials said it augmented the evidence that Moscow intended to harm Clinton’s candidacy and help Trump’s, several officials with knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.

    The two-page synopsis also included allegations that there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government, according to two national security officials.

    1. The bullshit is amazing. People will believe anything I guess.

    “information from Russian sources…” Yeah that’s really credible. Cheney had Iraqi sources who told him Saddam Hussein was involved with 9-11 and was building WMDs–which is exactly what Cheney wanted them to tell him.

    Americans can’t be this stupid can they?

    Obama wades into UK Brexit debate to eurosceptic fury

    London (AFP) – US President Barack Obama plunged into Britain’s increasingly poisonous EU debate on Friday with a powerful warning against Brexit, arguing that US soldiers had laid down their lives for Europe.

    Obama’s rare foray into the domestic politics of another country comes ahead of Britain’s EU membership referendum in June and drew a furious response from eurosceptics like London Mayor Boris Johnson.

    Writing in the Daily Telegraph, a traditional bastion of euroscepticism, Obama argued that Britain’s place in the European Union magnified its global influence and invoked the memory of US troops who died in two world wars.

    Obama used the memory of fallen soldiers and also a threat about trade to try and sway the voters.  Shameless and shameful.

    You think the only reason that people won't vote for a warmongering Third Way fracking-enabling cluster bomb throwing H-1B increasing lying pandering corporate and Wall Street shill who says she has no problem putting abortion rights on the table is because we are mad about Bernie?  Um, nope.

    Question, though: Why would these documents be provided to the gang of eight?
