    In a story that is getting more surreal by the minute, a post on 4Chan now claims that the infamous "golden showers" scene in the unverified 35-page dossier, allegedly compiled by a British intelligence officer, was a hoax and fabricated by a member of the chatboard as "fanfiction", then sent to Rick Wilson, who proceeded to send it to the CIA, which then put it in their official classified intelligence report on the election.


    Here is 4Chan's explanation of how the story came to light:

    >/pol/acks mailed fanfiction to anti-trump pundit Rick Wilson about trump making people (*)(*)(*)(*) on a bed obama slept in
    >he thought it was real and gave it to the CIA
    >the central intelligence agency of the united states of america put this in their official classified intelligence report on russian involvement in the election
    >donald trump and obama have both read this pol/acks fanfiction
    >the cia has concluded that the russian plans to blackmail trump with this story we made up
    just let that sink in what we have become.

    If part of this report is really just a work of fiction, should we assume the rest of it is? How can we trust any of this stuff being reported if this is the level of information they report?

    The report & story is garbage as are Buzzfeed & CNN for publishing it.

    The real concerns here should be;
    1) WHO LEAKED THIS CLASSIFIED "Report"?
    2) Why on earth would this easily debunked 'fiction' make into a CLASSIFIED "intelligence" report in the first place? I mean, the report alleges that Michael Cohen, Trump’s attorney and legal counsel, was central to “the ongoing secret liaison relationship between the New York tycoon’s campaign and the Russian leadership” and that he met secretly with Kremlin officials in Prague in August 2016.....But,..... Cohen's never been to Prague in his life!

    So, here's the deal, if we're suppose to accept the info about Russian hacking in the "classified intelligence report" & this easily debunked report was in it, it begs the question; how many other aspects of the "intelligence report" are actually verifiable or can they just as easily be debunked?

    My conclusion: THIS WHOLE THING WREAKS OF AN AGENDA! Everything about it. The timing, the narrative, the allegations, the leaks, the "unnamed sources", the media sources driving it...all of it!

    It would make sense that such a fake story came from "the arm pit of the internet" wouldn't it.

    who said government drones are smart? In my 40 + years of dealing with them I have found them average to below average. The smart ones go into private industry

    BTW I am loving how the leftists here refuse to give up even after the story has been verified to be false. DESPERATION at it's finest

    It could be Russian disinformation. The sad part is, given the state of the media and DNC disinformation machine, it is plausible they are peddling yet another story they know to be false.

    A fairly apt description.
    I consider it the birthplace of anonymous.
    It would seem CNN, John McCain and possibly our intelligence agencies are dumb enough to go there for news/intelligence gathering. Isn't that the real story here? All unconfirmed as of yet but the truth whatever it may be will come out.
    Whomever is in the wrong is going to take a hard fall. Proving Trump guilty will not be easy. Tracing falsehoods back to 4chan will be much easier. CNN had best have a last will and testament drawn up.

    Remember that story about Hillary and Podesta running a child sex ring out of a D.C. pizza Parlor? Remember that there were high ranking Trump staffed and Trumpnsupporters who considered that go be a real story?

    Where was your guys Fakedar when Hillary was being smeared?

    Where was your skepticism when Trump was spreading his birtherism lies?

    Where was your questioning for proof when Trump says ge saw visions of naked cheering Muslin women on rooftops in NJ the night of 9 11?

    Where was your zeal for truth then ?

    Not that I've seen. They're still running the story as late breaking and alleged. Even though they've had this crap for at least four months they're running it as brand new so they don't have to say they haven't been able to confirm any of it.
    The leftist MSM seems to digging its own grave at breakneck speed. I would opine they're doing it before the inauguration because they think obama and his politicized agencies will protect them right now. Not very logical and reeks of desperation but that's standard operating procedure for the left as of late.

    Some of them have spent the last year searching for Obama's Kenyan BC and one of them got elected as president.

    That tells you the level of intellect that we are dealing with here.

    At the press conferamce today if I were Trump I would make sure the CNN reporter was seated front and center and before beginning give him or her a good tongue lashing. Then telling them to leave and not come back until a formal apology ran hourly on CNN for at least a day
