Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Justice released to Congress the memos that former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) James Comey had taken during the early months of Donald Trump’s presidency before Trump fired Comey in May, 2017. These rather voluminous notes were a personal recording of Comey’s recollection of interchanges with President Trump in several meetings with him. On multiple occasions, the president voluntarily mentioned allegations in the Steele dossier about Trump and prostitutes in Moscow.
Christopher Steele is a former elite, British intelligence officer who specialized in Russia intelligence. He was employed by Fusion GPS during the U.S. presidential campaign of 2016 to investigate issues about Donald Trump and write a report about it for the Hilary Clinton political campaign and Democratic Party. This report circulated surreptitiously in the campaign and was published by BuzzFeed.
Eventually, FBI Director Comey told Trump about this dossier, including its salacious details alleged therein. This report subsequently came to be called “the Steele dossier.” It claims to be based mostly on accounts of Russian intelligence officers. It contains a claim that, during the 2013 Miss Universe pageant, which Trump owned and was held in Moscow, Trump hired two prostitutes to stand peeing on each other on a bed in the Ritz-Carlton hotel suite (2,600 square feet in size overlooking the Kremlin) in Moscow. The dossier calls this peeing incident euphemistically “Golden Showers.” The dossier also claims that Russian spies video taped the incident.
The dossier says the reason Trump did this was that he had found out what room U.S. President Barak Obama and his wife Michelle had rented at this hotel in July, 2009. Then he rented that room. The dossier then claims Trump had those prostitutes pee on the bed to symbolically defile it because the Obamas had slept on it. For years, even before his election as president, Donald Trump publicly disparaged Barak Obama. He even claimed Obama was an illegitimate U.S. president because he was not born in this country, which subsequently was proved untrue. It was called “the birther movement.”Comey’s memos say that on February 8, 2017, only a few days after Donald Trump was inaugurated as the U.S. president, Comey met privately with President Trump. A memo Comey says the president “brought up the ‘Golden Showers’ thing” in the Steele dossier. Trump said of it, “the hooker thing is nonsense.” Trump defended himself to Comey about it by saying, “I’m a germaphobe. There’s no way I would let people pee on each other around me. No way.”
Regarding this same discussion, Comey’s memo says President Trump also told him he had a talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin in which he said of Russia, “we have some of the most beautiful prostitutes in the world.” Trump did not tell Comey when Putin had said that to him. I’d like to know the context of that remark in their discussion.
Furthermore, weeks prior, on January 11, 2017, thus nine days before Donald Trump was to be inaugurated as U.S. president, Putin said publicly that Russian prostitutes “are the best in the world, of course.” What was that context?
Why has the media not been picking up on this? Moreover, why is Donald Trump not getting this Putin message? If he did, he would have kept his mouth shut about it.
President Trump has publicly stated that the Golden Showers thing could not have happened because he has for a long time been quite aware of how Russian intelligence spies on important foreigners who visit Russia, especially Moscow, and does things like secretly record their talking and perhaps video taping them. Trump says he would have been careful to not do anything like the Golden Showers thing to avoid Russian intelligence doing that thus having leverage on him to possibly blackmail him someday.
Yeah, sure! I doubt it if Stephani Clifford (a.k.a. Stormy Daniels) and Karen McDougall are right about something. They claim to have had sexual intercourse with Donald Trump, when he was married to Melanie, and that Trump never used a condom. He had just met both women for the first time, and one of them, Daniels, was a porn star.
I suspect that Putin made both comments about Russian prostitutes to subtly indicate the Steele dossier is right– “the Golden Showers thing” happened and Russia has a video tape of it. I’m open to being shown that I’m wrong. The context of these remarks could help. I could be wrong, but I doubt it.
