Because except for the golden shower part, it hasn't all been "leaked."

How again did CNN miss-report? Not being snarky, but as far as I can tell CNN is the one that said (before NBC) that they couldn't confirm it was discussed, only that it was in the presentation document. And CNN was the one that broke the news that it was a "Different" Michael Cohen in Prague.

I am not a CNN fan...most of their reporting is fluff, but if we are to recognize Fake News we need to not dismiss real and accurate reporting when it happens.


The details are still very unclear, but I think you bring up an interesting point.

If its true that CNN reported only that it was in the document, and the intell claims they never discussed or gave the document to Trumps people, how did CNN know what was in the synopsis?

The only people with that synopsis were the intel people, so only the only explanation is that an intelligence person leaked the info to CNN


I feel like why are at least starting to discuss facts vs. BS...No doubt you might disappoint me very soon.

OK...correct..CNN never leaked the Dossier or linked to it.
correct..They didn't report that it was brought up with Trump..
correct...they did report it was included (two page synopsis) in the Intel briefing package.

And to your point...YES...someone in intelligence leaked the fact that two page synopsis was included in the briefing.

Why?..Objectively..why did that specific leak happen.

Other notes:

IN OCTOBER, The now identified former MI6 officer talked to Mother Jones about the memos he authored..


in August, they say, the FBI asked him for all information in his possession and for him to explain how the material had been gathered and to identify his sources.

The former spy forwarded to the bureau several memos—some of which referred to members of Trump's inner circle.

After that point, he continued to share information with the FBI. "It's quite clear there was or is a pretty substantial inquiry going on," he says.

www.motherjones.com...

So the FBI has been investigating the veracity of the memo from roughly August until now..

The very idea that after 6 months of investigating the memos, that they still felt it worth making the synopsis (presumably a summary of the information that stood up to scrutiny) tells a whole lot.

And the fact when questioned directly this week in open hearings whether or not the FBI was investigating the Trump campaigns contacts with Russia...Comey responded with..

"“I would never comment on investigations, whether we have one or not, in an open forum like this,” Comey said. “So I really can’t answer it one way or another.”
www.politico.com...

Which is ironic given the Clinton Letter to congress..

AND the idea that someone was quick to tell CNN it was a different "Michael Cohen" that met in Prague??

That is just all weird...It means they did track down parts of the Memo..but "Michael Cohen" is like Joe Smith for jews...I would even venture a guess that there were multiple "Michael Cohen's" in Prague in August...so when they say the found THE Michael Cohen in the report and it's a different one...There is a lot of questions there.

This case is open and evolving...

I believe they leaked the info this week in fear that Trump would try to white-wash it behind closed doors once inaugurated. Now with everyone aware any moves to squash the open questions raised by the memo will not be as easy with more light and attention...and any overtly pro-Russian moves by Trump will be questioned by Congress.

I also believe there is some significant veracity to the memos.

I want to know why Trump refused to answer the question about whether his campaign had contact with the Russian Government during the campaign....that should be an easy answer...he refused to answer, briefly said something not related it and walked away from the podium..end of press conference.

The document was not referenced in the two page synopsis.

Just to be clear.

And that was the aim of the leak...To de-tooth the compromise...or at least weaken it.

The only question remaining is if/how/when/why as far as the Trump campaigning colluding with Russian Operatives.

LOL good one.

Won't matter even if they release 10 more sex scandals.



Even a business scandal won't do it.

It's all still "wet behind the ears".

So...the two page synopsis contained information that originated from the Document/Dossier, but did not mention where the information originated from? Just to be clear..

And I am getting a little dizzy as far as what folks consider "real" or "fake news"...can you tell me what the source is for that bit of information?

Not doubting you, just looking for clarity.

No. Per the link/quote I gave earlier, the document was not referenced in the two page addendum. It was included in "background information" that was compiled for the meeting but never used.

Its all over the news. They were discussing immediately after the presser. I think i was watching it on NBC, iirc.

Essentially, they are saying the leaked document was prepared in case they needed to make Trump understand what they were referring to with "fake news", so he'd know the kind of stuff circulating out there.

Then, after doing this enormously honorable thing for him (which they never showed him), they leaked it to hte press.

CNN stuck a fork in themselves. They are done as a news organization. TBH, if i were Trump, i'd pull their credentials at the WH.


Your post is full of inaccuracies. I don't know you to BS often, so I assume you just have it wrong.

The Dossier was sent to FBI et al in October.
It was also sent to Multiple media outlets shortly there after.
Media outlets did not run it because they could not verify it.
The MI6 agent and his intelligence firm are now known...and yes they have done credible work for the intelligence community in the past.

So no...It wasn't provided as an example of "Fake News"..

No...the intelligence community did not leak the Dossier to the press.



It was reported yesterday that the intelligence services included it as an example of fake news BS.


By who? do you ever provide links for your claims?


It was already provided. It is telling that you do not seek out or even acknowledge information that does not fit your narrative. Further telling that you immediately dismissed the fact that CNN were claiming a second Michael Cohen (which turned out to be true), yet are willing to accept fake news if it suits your agenda.

You do not think critically, despite your claims.

You said this, during this thread earlier, about YOURSELF (which was cringe worthy and shows a clear narcissistic trend) :

ALWAYS with EVERYTHING...I love research..Whenever I meet a new doctor they think I am doctor...cuz when something goes wrong...I look up everything and the definition of every word until I get it..and by the time I am talking to a specialist I am drilling him on his approach and strategy for solving the issue in his own language.


I suggest as well as being a peddler of fake news, driven by your hatred of Trump, you also have a serious self awareness issue and the doctors you mentioned you meet rather look on you as a patient, one they should commit to a mental institute for your own good.

Trump certainly got the upper hand over CNN and gave them a much needed slam down. Its funny to see a POTUS fighting with the WH Press Corps when for 8 years we saw them fawning over boob Obama and doing everything they could to help prop him up. Its going to be fun. The wimpy effete lackwitted Obama is going to be replaced by a gruff abrasive and aggressive power player. Let's hope Trump takes the same tone with Congress. And Amen to Hillary not getting elected. I keep seeing her being wheeled out like Captain Pike in Star Trek beeping once for yes, two beeps for no. Or laughing dementedly when she refuses to answer a question.

First he called Buzzfeed garbage, and then refused to take questions from a CNN reporter--calling the organization "fake news."

It was amazing. I love the fact that their own fake news rhetoric was used against them (and, ironically, is actually valid in this context).

The claim was made by a national news channel and quoted sources exactly the same as CNN did. Am I to take it that you have dismissed their sources and taken the ones that fit your agenda? You make my point wonderfully.

As for the link, you can find it (it's been posted on two occasions) as your laziness to search out anything that does not fit your narrative needs some self help to correct.

I'm just going by Trump's own words. I never said that I know more about hacking than the US intel agencies do, Trump said that. I didn't say that I know more about ISIS than our US generals, Trump did. I never said that I get my advise from myself, because I have a good brain, and I have all the best words. That was Trump.

Those are STUPID things to say, and I'm not THAT stupid! Bookmark this!

That wasn't the argument you made.
You said you know more than Trump about the intelligence services. I found that funny and will reference it for fun in the future to demonstrate your delusions.
