    This isn't real. We can't complain about fake news and then take this bait.

    Do you think it will go full circle and be called #watergate?
    Seeing as one of the reporters that did that is on this as well, it probably will.

    I would like to remind people that the only group who have actually contacted/learned this information from this operative was Buzzfeed.

    Not the NY Times or the WA. Post, not ABC or NBC, not Breitbart or whatever leaning website. Fucking Buzzfeed, clickbait capital of the world.

    This is fake clickbait news guys.

    The Guardian: FBI chief given dossier by John McCain alleging secret Trump-Russia contacts

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...ussia-contacts

    [...]
    The Guardian can confirm that the documents reached the top of the FBI by December. Senator John McCain, who was informed about the existence of the documents separately by an intermediary from a western allied state, dispatched an emissary overseas to meet the source and then decided to present the material to Comey in a one-on-one meeting on 9 December, according to a source aware of the meeting. The documents, which were first reported on last year by Mother Jones, are also in the hands of officials in the White House

    This is going to be the biggest amount of fake news since November.

    even if you ignore all tweets that confirmed this, you're still wrong

    Some of the allegations were first reported publicly in Mother Jones one week before the election.
    Mother Jones has a pretty partisan lean, not going to lie. Unless CNN is mistaken you're being a goofball right now.

    Buzzfeed news is quite a different beast from Buzzfeed proper. It's still not a world class news source. But despite that and their sensationalised titles, they have more journalistic integrity than Fox fucking News.

    Not my first choice of source ever, but they have had some decent story coverage in the past.

    It could still all be easily fake. But people do need to avoid conflating Buzzfeed News with Buzzfeed the clickbait listicle site. Two different entities under the same umbrella.

    I don't understand this, every time a news story is sourced from Buzzfeed someone claims 'clickbait'. Buzzfeed News is a completely different section to all clickbait list-icles. It is like judging the BBC based on what is shown on BBC 3.

    Their UK politics section is actually quite good and they have proper reporters writing proper articles. Buzzfeed News is a legit source IMO.

    The Guardian has not been able to confirm the veracity of the documents’ contents
    And the FBI/CIA/Whatever agencies have not come out and confirmed this file is accurate to their findings.

    This kind of scare mongering bullshit was and still is rumor-mill tier. And the fact you guys are actually thinking that this document is a for real thing is actually concerning.

    Hold on for just two seconds.

    Is the investigation reported in CNN based on the BuzzFeed bullshit? They mention Mother Jones as the first source, not BuzzFeed.

    Mother Jones will take anything with a semi-legit story and run it.

    I mean look at the stuff that makes the headlines nowadays.

    Has there ever been an incident like this in say, the past 100 years, where a major world power's leader like US/RU/UK was blackmailed or publicly humiliated by another power? History buffs help me out here, because this seems otherworldy to me.
    That time Jefferson or Adams got the press to accuse the other a hermaphrodite comes to mind.

    The more shit like this happens, the more I think South Park was right when they made that episode about Earth just being a giant reality TV show.

    I don't even know what's real anymore.

    It's not, there's no point 14 in any of the documents.

    Did you really...Link to fake information without checking your sources to disprove the document?

    He seems pissed.
    Truly a flustered stream of consciousness!

    (But, seriously though - he is being transparent in his response by being more enraged than usual. This is a good sign for us.)

    This is actually really funny for me.

    It's like the DNC, but the complete opposite.

    Those were boring and completely verified, while this is utterly entertaining and probably fake as hell for now.

    Honestly, I would be ready to accept Trump as Golden Shower king, I doubt he doesn't already literally own one.
