Skip to comments.Report: Obama Intel Officials Used ‘Russia Blackmail’ Claims to Warn Israel About Trusting Trump

TEL AVIV U.S. intelligence officials warned their Israeli counterparts not to trust President-elect Donald Trump with intelligence secrets, citing alleged fears that Russia held blackmail information over Trump, according to a report today in Israels respected Yediot Ahronot daily newspaper.
The alleged blackmail information that U.S. officials reportedly warned Israel about seems to be in part referencing details contained in a debunked document of mysterious origin purporting to be an intelligence report alleging that Russia collected compromising videos and information on Trump.
In the report, investigative journalist Ronen Bergman writes of a meeting that took place recently between Israeli and American intelligence officials (the date of the meeting is not mentioned to protect the sources of the report).
During the meeting, according to the Israelis who participated in it, their American colleagues voiced despair over Trumps election, as he often lashes out at the American intelligence community.
The Americans implied that their Israeli colleagues should be careful as of January 20, Trumps inauguration date, when transferring intelligence information to the White House and to the National Security Council (NSC), which is subject to the president. According to the Israelis who were present in the meeting, the Americans recommended that until it is made clear that Trump is not inappropriately connected to Russia and is not being extorted Israel should avoid revealing sensitive sources to administration officials for fear the information would reach the Iranians.

any smooth transition would do this. /s
This white house truly loves and needs it’s boogey men and colorful pinatas.
Israel has an intelligence agency that saw through his in seconds.
Obama is such an ass hat clown.
Everyone he showed it it knew what a boob he was.
And as for McStain, folks know what an enemy of Conservatism and the nation he is.
I’ve got a feeling McStain isn’t going to have as smooth a ride as he thought this term.
Did it start with Bush super pacs making up stuff, or did it start with a 4 chan troll inventing it as a joke?
Regardless, scary our intelligence agencies are so active in American politics.
The FBI countering the CIA. Now the DOJ is going to ‘independently’ investigate the FBI.
Trump needs to clean house. Ax about 50%+ of the people working in this agencies as they are pursuing terrible agendas.
Anyone behind the Middle East meltdown needs to be fired in Trump’s first week in power.
If this isn’t treason I don’t know what is.
Kick everyone of these treasonous officials out. They should be prosecuted.
In my minds eye I am seeing those photos of McCain in the mid east meeting with the terrorists.
IMO, about the most we could hope for would be McStain to be removed from all committees. I doubt that would happen. By rights he should be removed from the Senate.
This crafty old jackass knew exactly what this was, but tried to harm Trump with it anyway.
So did Obama.
Obama should be tried for arming and funding terrorist groups that have sworn hatred for the United States.
McStain was involved in that too, as was Graham, Clinton, and probably Rubio. Perhaps a few others were also involved.
So here are reasons to bring charges against all of them > IMO.
Won’t happen, but they should be seen for exactly what they did.
Their actions most certainly contributed to the death of Ambassador Stevens and his staff.
Hillary is up to her forehead on that count, and a few other players probably are also.
It’s devastating to think American Intelligence would actually think the Israelis so gullible as to believe any of this.
The CIA is OUT OF CONTROL. Phoenix it.
Like israeli intelligence really trusted obama and his legion?
The Israelis should worry about Trump? After putting up with muzzie loving Obama?
All those men who died because of him on the Forrestal. And all the POWs in Vietnam, I wonder what their parents, brothers, sisters, wives think about this crafty old son of a b
I agree. Me too...
The Democrat Party feels no shame or remorse about using the resources of, and acting under the color of authority of, the local, state or federal government....for purposes which are 100% partisan.
Erkle is an Asshat. We all know that.
I’m quite sure are enemies, and our allies know DJT and where he stands.
What scares The Globalist is that Trump will build a New Coalition of the Free to defeat the Evil. This I believe.
And arrogant too.
Laughable, isn’t it?
