Among the revelations from former FBI Director James Comey’s recently-released memos includes an anecdote in which the president reportedly told him that Russia President Vladimir Putin was very boastful about the sex workers in his country.
“The President said ‘the hookers thing’ is nonsense,” Comey wrote, referencing the salacious “golden showers” dossier written by former British spy Christopher Steele. “Putin had told him ‘we have some of the most beautiful hookers in the world.'”
“He did not say when Putin had told him this,” Comey wrote.
In the memos, the former FBI director noted on three separate occasions that Trump brought up Russian “hookers,” and also commented at least once about the dossier’s allegation that he paid prostitutes to urinate in a Ritz Moscow bed that President Barack Obama once slept in.
“The President brought up the ‘Golden Showers thing’ and said it really bothered him if his wife had any doubt about it,” Comey wrote. “He then explained, as he did at our dinner, that he hadn’t stayed overnight in Russia during the Miss Universe trip.”
