From the dossier of Christopher Steele, bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee:
According to Source D, where s/he had been present, TRUMP’S (perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton hotel, where he knew President and MRS. OBAMA (whom he hated) had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia, and defiling the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a “golden showers” (urination) show in front of him. The hotel was known to be under FSB control with microphones and concealed cameras in all the main rooms to record anything they wanted to.
What came to be known as the “pee tape” quickly turned into the most widely reported and disseminated bit of information in Steele’s dossier. After the entire document was published by BuzzFeed only a couple of weeks before Trump’s inauguration, the media – held back only by their fear of being sued for slander – carefully tiptoed around the allegation while still bringing it up as often as they could. For gullible liberals, this was the ticket. This was why Russia had Trump under their control – this piece of damning “kompromat” that showed the president engaging in disgusting, perverted behavior with hired Russian whores.
As it turns out, though, those who find this story about as believable as Jack and the Beanstalk are in good company; according to a new book written by Michael Isikoff and David Corn, even Steele – the AUTHOR of the damned dossier – didn’t really put much faith in the claim.
“Steele’s confidence in the sensational sex claim would fade over time,” say the authors in their book, Russian Roulette. “As for the likelihood of the claim that prostitutes had urinated in Trump’s presence, Steele would say to colleagues, ‘It’s fifty-fifty.’”
Right. It either happened or it didn’t happen.
Hey, we have an idea: Why don’t we spend tens of millions of dollars and divide the nation by launching an investigation into this thinly-sourced claim (and all the other equally-dubious allegations made by this ridiculous document)? It’ll be fun!
The book also sheds light on “Source D” himself, a businessman named Sergei Millian with a questionable relationship with the truth.
“The memo had described Millian as a Trump intimate, but there was no public evidence he was close to the mogul at that time or was in Moscow during the Miss Universe event,” the book tells us. “Had Millian made something up or repeated rumors he had heard from others to impress Steele’s collector? [Fusion GPS founder Glenn] Simpson had his doubts. He considered Millian a big talker.”
Let’s just say this: If the rest of the dossier’s claims are as poorly sourced as this one, this thing is even phonier than we imagined. Steele would have gotten closer to the truth if he’d just stayed home and made it up off the top of his head.
But no, let’s spend another year investigating these asinine claims. The Democrats have an election to win.
