WikiLeaks responds to ‘golden showers’ intel: This ‘is not an intelligence report’

Published

on

On Tuesday night, BuzzFeed News released a 35-page dossier of “explosive — but unverified — allegations” that was compiled by an alleged former British intelligence official.

The report claims that President-elect Donald Trump, whose lawyer denied the entire report, engaged in “sexual perversion” and hired sex workers to perform “golden showers.”

BuzzFeed stood by its decision to publish the documents in full, noting that “Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.” However, the documents are unverified at this time, as is the alleged British official.

WikiLeaks responded to the release of the report in a tweet that read, “35 page PDF published by Buzzfeed on Trump is not an intelligence report. Style, facts & dates show no credibility.”

In a Sunday segment on CNN's Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter wondered about the ratings for the "first episode" of the public impeachment hearings.

"I hate to talk this way," Stelter said. "Will the Democrats put on a powerful first episode? Will they convince people to keep watching?"

"Why is CNN so stupid about important shit?" O'Brien wrote on Twitter. "This is Cillizza-level inanity. Brian should be ashamed of himself."

“I’m sorry Matt came up short," McConnell said, "but he had a good four years and all indications are, barring some dramatic reversal on the recanvass, we’ll have a different governor in three weeks."
