The Golden Shower

Something interesting

Did I mention this before? I signed up for a Twitter account, but the only feed I follow is @RealDonaldTrump. I accept no substitutes. And besides, this is priceless. Some would even say Golden:

It now turns out that the phony allegations against me were put together by my political opponents and a failed spy afraid of being sued….

Totally made up facts by sleazebag political operatives, both Democrats and Republicans – FAKE NEWS! Russia says nothing exists. Probably…

released by “Intelligence” even knowing there is no proof, and never will be. My people will have a full report on hacking within 90 days!

Ever alert, ever responsive, ever entertaining, the Snowflake-elect is often dead wrong. Donald Trump has the remarkable ability to spit directly into the wind, figuratively speaking. Mr. Trump, in that last tweet, seems to be saying a government intelligence agency leaked the story about allegations of his sleaze. That assertion is, on the face, unfounded, because it was BuzzFeed News that first made the story public, and they didn’t get their information from government sources:

These Reports Allege Trump Has Deep Ties To Russia

A dossier, compiled by a person who has claimed to be a former British intelligence official, alleges Russia has compromising information on Trump. The allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors.

A dossier making explosive — but unverified — allegations that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” President-elect Donald Trump for years and gained compromising information about him has been circulating among elected officials, intelligence agents, and journalists for weeks.

The dossier, which is a collection of memos written over a period of months, includes specific, unverified, and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians. BuzzFeed News reporters in the US and Europe have been investigating various alleged facts in the dossier but have not verified or falsified them. CNN reported Tuesday that a two-page synopsis of the report was given to President Obama and Trump.

Now BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.

I have retained a copy of the full document mentioned, in case it later becomes unavailable.

In the meantime, Mr. Trump seems intent on prolonging his agony by continuing to blather forth about it, accusing any and all who might be handy. It’s not a safe route for the future president to take, as readers are familiar with his previous life experiences and are, as a consequence, inclined to believe whatever comes down the pike. Commentator Keith Olbermann has gone so far as to release a personal diagnosis of the remarkable personality that is about to take power. Minute by minute there are fewer who doubt this assessment.

The Golden Shower title derives from excerpts taken from the full document, and it is as good as any to tag future posts. There will be more, so keep reading.

And may Jesus have mercy on your soul.
