Russia Has Salacious Info on US President-Elect: Intel Report

Russia Has Salacious Info on US President-Elect: Intel Report

US president-elect, Donald Trump

US intelligent agencies say their Russian counterparts have compiled some salacious information about US president-elect

Alwaght- US intelligent agencies say their Russian counterparts have compiled some salacious information about US president-elect and have communicated with his campaign throughout the election.

The claim came in form of a highly classified addendum to the intelligence report about alleged Kremlin-ordered hacking, delivered to President Barack Obama and the President-elect, Donald Trump.

Intelligence officials attached a two-page synopsis of the apparent findings to the highly classified report to illustrate the harm Russian operatives intended to inflict upon both American parties; and to bring the allegations that are circulating among the intelligence community to Trump’s attention.

The documents also allege communication between Trump campaign officials and members of the Russian government throughout the election, anonymous national security sources told CNN.

The allegations were included in a series of memos compiled by a person claiming to be a British intelligence official who has worked with the United States in the past.

Much like the declassified report released on Friday, the synopsis did not include details about sources or methods.

The documents have apparently circulated for months among senators and intelligence officials. Journalists who obtained the documents had been unable to corroborate the contents for weeks.

Last month, President Obama ordered the intelligence community to deliver a full report into Russia's role in the hacking of Democratic institutions.

The declassified report released last week concluded that: "Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election, the consistent goals of which were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary [Hillary] Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency."

However Russia rejected the allegations as “absolutely fake”.  

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the claims that Russian intelligence community has any compromising data on President-elect Donald Trump is “another attempt to harm bilateral relations,” comparing the allegations to “pulp fiction”.

He stressed that Moscow does not engage in collecting such material. "It is an obvious attempt to harm our bilateral relations. The quality of the public version of the previous report and this hoax is comparable. In English, it is called pulp fiction," Peskov said.

"Surely, we should react to it with the same sense of humor." Peskov added that there is a "sad side to it. There are people who are whipping up hysteria, going out of their way to keep up the atmosphere of a witch hunt”.
