RUSH: “FBI Has Not Verified Trump Dossier.” That’s from Byron York at the Washington Examiner. I mean, that’s all you need. You don’t even need to read the story. The FBI has not verified Trump dossier? The Trump dossier has formed the basis for all of this, including what Mueller is doing!
They haven’t verified anything. They haven’t verified any collusion between Trump and Russia. They haven’t verified anything, and yet this investigation is ongoing, and we all know why. But I’m telling you, the news that’s popping up here is causing an implosion on the left. The details are all there. You’re just not getting that particular characterization because it’s the left writing about themselves. So of course they’re not gonna write that “we are imploding.” But they are.
RUSH: I say again, the FBI has not verified the Trump dossier. The FBI hasn’t verified Russian collusion. The CIA hasn’t verified the Trump dossier. The NSA hasn’t verified the Trump dossier. Nobody’s verified anything. There’s not a shred of anything verified about any of these Trump-Russia allegations.
RUSH: What are some of the allegations in the Trump dossier? You know, we keep talking about the Trump dossier, and I think what most people associate with the Trump dossier is the golden showers story. And if you have not heard that, very briefly. An allegation in the Trump dossier is when Trump and Melania were in Moscow, some kind of trip, when they learned that they were staying in the same hotel suite that Barack Hussein and Michelle (My Belle) Obama had stayed in, that Trump called somebody and ordered some prostitutes to come over and urinate on the bed.
And that became the golden showers story. And that is in the Trump dossier. And this is one of the things that they’ve been trying to investigate and verify to prove that Trump colluded with the Russians. Do you want to hear something else? One of the wealthiest Russian oligarchs is a guy named Roman Abramovich. Roman Abramovich happens to own one of the largest private yachts in the world.
And so the local news is abuzz because this particular oligarch is very, very close to Putin and the KGB. And so despite they haven’t learned, they haven’t discovered any evidence that Roman Abramovich is gonna be palling around with Trump, the fact that his yacht has — they don’t even know if he’s on it. You know, these guys and their yachts, they charter them, they rent them. You could get it, Snerdley, for, I don’t know, $300,000 a week I think is the going price for it. Maybe half a million. I’m not sure. Ahem. Excuse me.
Anyway, but because it’s here, the media is buzzing that there’s gonna be collusion this weekend with Trump and the Russians because Abramovich is gonna be the middleman reporting whatever Trump says back to Putin and Abramovich is gonna have message for Trump from Putin. I mean, it’s just ridiculous.
Anyway, I have here a list of some of the allegations in this dossier. First, of course, is the golden showers. Then there are allegations that Trump participated in sex parties in St. Petersburg, Russia, alleged meetings between Carter Page, the low-influence, short-term Trump foreign policy adviser, and Igor Sechin, the head of Rosneft, which is Russia’s giant, state-owned oil company. As well as meetings between Page and Igor Diveykin, a top official in the Putin government during Page’s trip to Moscow in July of 2016.
What else? An alleged offer from Sechin to give Carter Page and Trump associates the brokerage of up to a 19% privatized stake in Rosneft, potentially worth billions of dollars in return for ending U.S. sanction against Russia. No evidence, there’s none, none of this stuff has been verified.
An alleged meeting between close Trump aide Michael Cohen and Kremlin representatives in Prague, Czech Republic, in August of 2016. The Trump dossier reported that Michael Cohen also met clandestinely in an EU country with lawyers from the Putin government also in 2016 to clean up the mess left behind by western media revelations of ex-campaign manager Manafort’s corrupt relationship with former pro-Russian Yanukovych regime in Ukraine and Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page.
The point is Cohen was never even there. Cohen has never even been there, much less on that date. There are a couple of more here, but not one thing has been verified. And yet it doesn’t mean anything. The investigation’s not stopped in any way, shape.
