Way too many Intelligence Agencies that the "right arm is not aware what the
left arm" is doing.
The bucket Cyr uses to carry Trump's water is full of holes. This is not a
"public relations offensive" for the intelligence community. Merely
them paying-the-piper for their pre-election expediency.IC agencies,
members of House and Senate, and major newspapers have had the full 30+ page
dossier for months. David Corn/Mother Jones reported on its existence and
allegations in late-October. CNN accurately reported that the IC agencies
included a 2-page summary in the written materials shared with Obama and Trump.
Buzzfeed then shared with the public the 30+ pages that Wash DC insiders of both
parties have had for months. The dossier suggests Russia has
evidence of both its active collusion with the Trump campaign and the kinky
hotel scene. If so, Russia has Watergate-in-a-Can and could destabilize the
American government, at a time and under circumstances chosen by Russia...or the
highest-bidder.Briefing the current and next President of this risk
now is a bare minimum CYA for the IC agencies. They sat on these
allegations, believing the projected Clinton victory would eliminate the thorny
no-win political hazards they now must navigate.
"In future, the top spooks could help political campaigns to grow up and be
discreet."Please tell me I read or inerpreted this wrong!
The intelligence agencies know far more about Trump and Putin than ever
imagined. I hope they release it soon.
