Russian government officials discussed having potentially "derogatory" information about then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and some of his top aides in conversations intercepted by US intelligence during the 2016 election, according to two former intelligence officials and a congressional source.
One source described the information as financial in nature and said the discussion centered on whether the Russians had leverage over Trump's inner circle [damn don't we all wonder who that could be?]….
The sources … cautioned the Russian claims to one another "could have been exaggerated or even made up"; they "could be overstating their belief to influence," said one of the sources.
That may be. What is clear, however, is that we've seen no evidence of Russian overstatement, exaggeration, or confection. Indeed the Donald and Jared are behaving just as one would expect two blackmailed morons to behave.
