British Spy: Unsubstantiated Intel on Trump

The explosive but unproven allegations about President-elect Donald Trump and his purported ties to Russia originated with the work of a respected former British spy who was hired by Democratic operatives and who began sharing his findings last August, federal officials confirmed to ABC News.

One of those who eventually received a copy of the spy’s secret report was Republican Sen. John McCain, who confirmed Wednesday he gave copies to the FBI director after receiving them last month.

“I did what any citizen should do,” McCain said in an interview. “I received sensitive information and then I handed it over to the proper agency of government and had nothing else to do with the issue. I don’t know if it’s credible or not. But the information, I thought, deserved to be delivered to the FBI, the appropriate agency of government.”

The allegations were incendiary –- that Trump had been secretly filmed in a luxury Moscow hotel and was compromised by the Russian government, and that aides to Trump on at least two occasions over the summer of 2016 held secret meetings with Russian government agents. The details became grist for a top secret security briefing to both President Obama and Trump last week. A senior intelligence official told ABC News the briefers walked through the allegations with Trump.

The man who gathered the information had a serious pedigree in intelligence circles – a retired British spy who later helped found a private intelligence firm. He had been stationed in Russia for years.

Trump opened his first press conference in six months Wednesday by blasting the contents of the report.

“For all the talk lately about fake news, this political witch hunt by some in the media is based on some of the most flimsy reporting and is frankly shameful and disgraceful,” he said.

While much of the material in the report is virtually impossible to prove or disprove, ABC News has for months been investigating the allegations and discovered serious flaws in the information.

The memos claim Trump lawyer Michael Cohen was part of an “ongoing secret liaison relationship” with the Russians and met with them “in Prague in August 2016.”

      Any Politician that is guilty of Treason should to prison.We have proof that Barack H Obama & Hillary R Clinton have committed treason.They provided arms & ammo to ISIS they negotiated with a known Terrorist country.Obama secretly negotiated with Iran who is a much bigger Security risk than Russia.Obama is committing Treason on January 20th 2017 by releasing 18 Terrorist from Gitmo.By the Constitution he must notify Congress 30 days before he releases Terrorist. These Terrorist have vowed to sever the heads of Americans and kill as many as they can.

        • Elaine Blackman

          Why are you so opposed to answering the questions asked of you? Why do you consider Russia to be worse than Iran, even if what you say is true? Talk about narrow minded!!!
          Besides, all of those agencies are in the pockets of the Dems right now. They won’t even admit when a terrorist uses Facebook to voice his thoughts what his actual motives are for attacking people who aren’t Islamists.
          Maybe that’s why you’re so narrow minded.

    • Tomahawk

      Still sniffing Hillary’s diapers. Go wash your head, you may feel better.

      What about Obama’s comment to the Russian? “I can do more after the election.”. hahahhahaha Talk about being in bed. But, hey, it’s a global world. We don’t have a cold war with Russia right now. What are you worried about? You aren’t worried about he $140,000,000,000 given to Iran by Obama, are you?

    I don’t believe for one minute that the election was hacked. The American people, the sleeping giant, the silent majority came back to life and voted for Trump. Hillary couldn’t get a small crowd to come to her town hall meetings. No matter how large the arena there were thousands that couldn’t get in to hear Trump. It’s a small world we live in, I’d much rather have Russia on our side than against us. Our prayers were answered when Trump won.

  • Tomahawk

    From a RESPECTED former British spy? I guess that’s why he broke and ran. Look at who hired him, and show me how respect could even enter that curve. This is total b s. Trump is a man. Just a man. Who happens to be our next president. And the globalists continue their agenda.

  • enough of it

    you sure did a crook being investigated for espionage ..you won alright..

  • Jerry

    Trump is the president elect now. We are just going to have to wait and see if things change for the better. The people that did not want Trump as president are going to have to wait until the next election. Hillary and Obama both have broken our laws, Hillary is a little more sneaking about it than Obama. But let me point out that I nor anyone else is perfect, we have all lied and done something illegal in our lives, the only difference is to the degree of the infraction of the law.

  • Arch Stanton

    I often wonder what drugs these people take to print this garbage.

  • Moonpup

    May I ask why “unproven allegations about President-elect Donald Trump” are even being repeated? I could make up all sorts of things about his opponent but even the things that are substantiated aren’t being reported in the manner that these things are. I saw a poster that I liked the other day, it said, “Guns don’t kill people, attempting to testify against Hillary kills people.”

  • Ron C

    This is such horrible reporting, lacks the new information developing on this story. Like that Michael Cohen has never been to Prague, Or that the dossier has been proven to written by two deferent, writers….one British & one American, I would give the truth on this to be about one percent.
