Methinks the real news is that the Democrats lost thousands of elections Nov 8th including the big prize.

The rest is just whining.

From what I've gleaned, Christopher Steele obtained his dossier information from former Russian intelligence agents and Russian government contacts he cultivated as a MI6 (the British equivalent of the CIA) agent working in Moscow and Paris during the 1990's.

It seems that Mr. Steele has left his home in Surrey and has gone underground after telling friends that the dossier revelations have become "too hot".

And the claim of a Brit being the author seems a bit infirm . . . Would a Brit ever call the World Cup a "soccer tournament"?

BBC correspondent Paul Wood came forward Wednesday to reveal that there are multiple intelligence sources alleging Russia is in possession of potentially embarrassing or compromising material regarding President-elect Donald Trump. Formerly, only a single source was known to have been aware of the alleged material.

"I saw the report, compiled by the former British intelligence officer, back in October," Wood said. "He is not, and this is the crucial thing, the only source for this.” The Wall Street Journalalleges the British source is Christopher Steele, a director of the London-based Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd.

A member of the U.S. intelligence community also told Wood that "at least one East European intelligence service was aware 'that the Russians had kompromat or compromising material on Mr. Trump,'" Raw Story reports. Wood said that he "got a message back" from the U.S. intelligence community member and that there is reportedly "more than one tape, not just video, but audio as well, on more than one date, in more than one place, in both Moscow and St. Petersburg."

Wood did add, however, that "nobody should believe something just because an intelligence agent says it."

BuzzFeedNews has been heavily criticized for publishing the unsubstantiated intelligence in full Tuesday night, which alleges collusion between Trump and Russia as well as the existence of a tape that would be embarrassing for Trump were it to be released. CNN carried similar, but less detailed, allegations. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Wednesday denied the reports and called them "an absolute fiction" and "a total bluff." Trump has called the reports "fake news" and dismissed all that has been alleged.
BBC claims a second source backs up Trump dossier

Mmm, you are looking more desperate. No proof just a guy who knows a guy who says he heard a guy who said he thinks it's true.

No, the real news is Democrats in frenzied denial over Hillary's defeat.

What do President Chesterfield A Arthur, John McCain and Ted Cruz all have in common? All had their natural citizenship and thus eligibility for the Presidency questioned. But Obama being the "historic" delicate little flower is too delicate to bear having his citizenship questioned. It's all so terribly offensive.

Of course you are aware this would be the party line of a useful idiot. Let's ignore Russian influence orchestrated over years and, instead, act like gloatful bastards who just won top prize at the fair.

Best thing is, Republicans are going to be kissing this pig for decades.

You can't be serious, right? Like you actually f*cking think the inquiry was comparable.

"Hey John, where were you born?"

"Panama, on base."

"Cool. Thanks."

vs.

"Hey Barack, where were you born?"

"Hawaii."

"Right... With a name like Barack? We're gonna need to see your birth certificate. No, not that one. No, another one. No, that other one that exists somewhere. No, no... It doesn't matter that state officials have confirmed your birth in their state. No... Perhaps we will find it in Kenya."

What's offensive is that you tried to pass that bullsh*t off with a straight face. You are indeed one of the most useful idiots.

A Democrat activist filed a lawsuit challenging McCain's eligibility. Your really ought to try informing yourself the tiniest bit before calling other people names, makes you look the fool when you don't.

I note the absence of any attempt to explain the identical questions posed to President Arthur or Ted Cruz. Oh wait, you don't have a reasoned response just childish insults.

Which was quickly disposed of by the court. Your point? And how does that singular lawsuit serve as justification for the efforts of Chancellor Cheeto?

You are trying really hard to make an argument work that just won't... And what's worse, is that you know it. That is worse than being a useful idiot. That's being a collaborator.
