Over the last 24 hours, the mainstream media has been in a complete frenzy after reports surfaced that Russia has a blackmail file on President Elect Donald J. Trump. Buzzfeed first reported that the file contains footage of Trump watching prostitutes in a Moscow bed. According to that same report, U.S. intelligence officials have a two-page synopsis of the compromising material and showed it to Trump during a briefing last week.
But Trump has dismissed the story as being completely fake, and now a Russian official has also said that the story is fabricated.
The Daily Mail reported that Russian sources told a British government operative that the had extensive material showing Trump in a Moscow suite where President Obama stayed at one point. In the footage, Trump is apparently watching prostitutes committing degrading sex acts on the same bed where Obama slept.
The 35 page report was first published by Buzzfeed. Little of its contents can be verified, yet the mainstream media — including CNN — has wasted little time running with the story.
Dmitry Peskov, the spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, dismissed the reports as a “complete fabrication and utter nonsense.”
Peskov denied the existence of any blackmail material on Trump. He said in a statement: “This information does not correspond to reality and is no more than fiction. There are those who pump up such a tantrum and do their best to maintain a ‘witch hunt’, and by the way this is how president-elect Trump characterised this fake. And why is the continuation of this hysterical state needed? To force our relationship to stay degraded.”
He concluded, “It is a complete fake – not worth the paper it was written on.”
How sad that the same mainstream outlets that whined nonstop about “fake news” are now peddling what is perhaps the biggest fake news story of the last few years!
