Ex-Ambassador McFaul speculates on the pee tape: ‘Everything that happens at the Ritz-Carlton goes to the Kremlin’

Published

If Donald Trump did hire Russian prostitutes for a “golden showers” show at the Ritz Carton Hotel in Moscow, the Kremlin has the tapes, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia explained on MSNBC’s “Hardball” on Saturday.

“Now people say on this show a few moments ago, it was all about money. Where are you on that? host Chris Matthews asked Ambassador Michael McFaul.

“What is Trump’s motive for siding with Putin?” he asked.

“I don’t know,” McFaul admitted. “I want to be clear, there’s lots of circumstantial evidence about the money they took in 2008 and maybe he’s beholden — I don’t want to connect those dots until I know the evidence, and that’s why we need Mr. Mueller to finish his job.”

There are also reports Trump is compromised by damning material.

In the salacious Steele Dossier, former British spy Christopher Steele reported that Trump could be subject to blackmail.

“Trump’s personal obsessions and sexual perversion in order to obtain suitable ‘kompromat’ (compromising material) on him,” Steele wrote.

“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 (who 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,” Steele explained.

The Steele Dossier was originally published by Buzzfeed News (screengrab)

“Do you think it’s kompromat, the dossier and the hotel room?” Wallace asked.

“I honestly don’t know,” McFaul replied. “I do know that that’s the way Putin does his business. He gives money to people for free, and then creates leverage. And he gathers kompromat on all kinds of people, in Russia, in other countries.”

“If you stay at the Ritz-Carlton, everything that happens in the Ritz-Carlton goes to the Kremlin,” McFaul said. “That I know for sure.”

Steele, who ran the Moscow desk for Britains MI6, also believed that Putin would have the tapes.

“The hotel was known to be under FSB control with microphones and concealed cameras in all the mail rooms to record anything they wanted to,” Steele wrote in his dossier.

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages

Published

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."

Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president

Published

on

One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.

In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
