CNN today showed off their latest “scoop” on the continuing investigating into a possible Russian-collusion with the Trump admin, quoting an anonymous source who stated Russian officials alluded to “derogatory” intel about Trump’s dealings.
The report touted by CNN acknowledges that U.S. intelligence sources did caution that an intercepted conversation could have been greatly exaggerated, or down-right made up as part of a disinformation effort… If true would diminishes the whole collusion narrative.
As written for Lifezette by Brendan Kirby:
Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu identified another flaw — that negative information about Trump’s business practices were not exactly a secret that required super spies from Russia to uncover. His multiple business bankruptcies and many lawsuits accusing him of unethical practices were grist for the attacks by Trump’s Republican primary opponents and their surrogates.
One of those surrogates was Sununu, who backed Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
“I came on your show with derogatory business information on Donald Trump during the primary,” he said on CNN. “Why is it a surprise? Why is it a news story that the Russians in Washington would convey the same material to the Russians in Moscow?”
Sununu’s comment came during a testy interview with anchor Alisyn Camerota. She suggested it was “one more thread” in the probe.
“Everybody was talking bout Trump’s business problems,” Sununu shot back. “Why is that news now?”
Sununu, who also served as chief of staff for President George H.W. Bush, threw Camerota’s questions back at her.
“I don’t see any evidence of collusion. Do you?” he asked.
