Donald Trump golden shower fake news


This video from the USA says about itself:

5 January 2017

We are joined by Glenn Greenwald, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and one of the founding editors of The Intercept. His latest article is headlined “WashPost Is Richly Rewarded for False News About Russia Threat While Public Is Deceived.” In it, he writes, “Any story that bolsters the prevailing D.C. orthodoxy on the Russia Threat, no matter how dubious, is spread far and wide. And then, as has happened so often, when the story turns out to be false or misleading, little or nothing is done to correct the deceitful effects.”

Dutch media site Villamedia.nl reported yesterday about right-wing Dutch daily De Telegraaf.

A tweet by one of its journalists, Bart Mos, on 12 January 2016 said (translated):

BREAKING We spoke with a witness about Trump‘s Golden Shower. De Telegraaf. Tomorrow.

The tweet referred to a 13 January 2016 Telegraaf article about the Trump Princess, a yacht formerly owned by Donald Trump which includes several gold items, including a shower.

However, many people, including the Washington Post, journalists in Germany, Israel and elsewhere, thought that was breaking ‘real’ news about the (very probably fake) rumour spread by an ex British secret policeman turned privatised secret policeman about Trump’s supposed ‘golden shower’ sexual incident in Russia. Probably as truthful as CIA claims about ‘weapons of mass destruction’ as the pretext for the Iraq war.

Bob Woodward calls Trump dossier ‘garbage’: here.

Paul Jansen, chief editor of De Telegraaf, said (translated):

People might get the impression that De Telegraaf spreads fake news.

Jansen banned Bart Mos from tweeting. However, Dutch magazine Quote says that the real reason for that ban was not the Trump golden shower tweet; but criticism by Mos of a xenophobic Telegraaf headline, describing refugees as a ‘plague’.

    HILLARY CLINTON’S presidential campaign funded research into the now infamous “dirty dossier” on President Donald Trump.

    The Associated Press news agency said on Tuesday night that it had received a copy of a letter from an unnamed “person familiar with the matter.”

    The letter detailed how Marc Elias, a lawyer for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Ms Clinton’s unsuccessful presidential campaign, and his legal firm Perkins Coie acted as a broker for the deal.

    In early March 2016 Mr Elias was approached by Fusion GPS, a firm which had already begun probing Mr Trump’s past and alleged links to Russia on behalf of “one or more other clients during the Republican primary contest.”

    The leaked letter, sent on Tuesday by Perkins Coie’s general counsel to a lawyer for Fusion GPS, released the research firm from its client confidentiality obligation.

    Perkins Coie hired Fusion GPS in April 2016 “to perform a variety of research services during the 2016 election cycle,” the letter said.

    Fusion GPS hired former British MI6 spy Christopher Steele to write the reports, first of which were filed in June.

    The dossier, published by internet clickbait site Buzzfeed late last year, included lurid accusations against Mr Trump.

    The most infamous was that he paid two women to urinate on each other in a hotel bed former president Barack Obama and his wife once slept in.

    But the dossier also contained allegations that Russia had meddled in the election by waging a covert smear campaign against Ms Clinton, whose campaign manager’s emails were leaked to WikiLeaks.

    It also claimed the Kremlin kept its own blackmail dossier on Mr Trump, potentially compromising his independence.

    A DNC spokeswoman said committee chairman Tom Perez was not part of the decision-making and was unaware that Perkins Coie was working with Fusion GPS.

    But she insisted: “There is a serious federal investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia and the American public deserves to know what happened.”

    Former Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted he regretted not knowing about Mr Steele’s hiring — but if he had: “I would have volunteered to go to Europe and try to help him.”
