NBC News Contradicts CNN: “Golden Showers” Memo is “Disinformation”

With so much disinformation being presented by the myriad of media outlets, even major media, who can we believe?

NBC News has contradicted CNN about a 35-page dossier regarding some of Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

A U.S. intelligence official told NBC News that Trump was not briefed on the two-page summary or the dossier, which directly contradicts CNN’s report, and the addendum was prepared for the briefing only to provide an example of unvetted “disinformation.”

Travis Gettys of Raw Story reports that the official, who had knowledge of the preparation for the meeting with Trump, said the two-page summary of the unsubstantiated material was intended to illustrate for the president-elect the difference between raw intelligence and analyzed intelligence.

U.S. intelligence officials told Trump on Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin directed a campaign to “undermine public faith” in the democratic process and to hobble Hillary Clinton’s election chances.

CNN reported Tuesday that multiple U.S. officials said both Trump and President Barack Obama were briefed on the two-page summary of findings gathered by a former British intelligence operative, who alleged that Russia had gained compromising information on the president-elect.

The dossier, which, among other disturbing things, contains allegations that Trump paid prostitutes to perform a “golden showers” show in Moscow, was originally generated as anti-Trump opposition research at the direction of his Republican primary rivals.

As expected, Trump took to Twitter with his statement:

 

Mother Jones reported on some of the dossier’s claims in October 2016.

It was not only the British spy that had these Russian sex tapes according to BBC.  “Trump agreed with a spokesman for the Kremlin who dismissed the findings as a “complete fabrication and utter nonsense,” and his former campaign manager described the reports as “fake news,” said Gettys.

The intelligence officials who briefed Trump and Obama also had available unvetted “disinformation” about the Clinton Foundation, NBC News reported, but that was also not shared with Trump.

CNN reported that Sen. John McCain delivered a copy of the document to FBI Director James Comey last month, and The Guardian reported that the FBI applied for a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court over the summer to monitor four members of Trump’s team for possible contacts with Russian officials.

The Guardian said it is unclear if the warrant was granted or if there was a full investigation.

This should either be true or false. So why are major media outlets contradicting each other? Remember to think and research before jumping to conclusions.
