The post was addressed to the One American News TV-channel, which earlier published a video, disclosing the main provisions of the document.
Will remind, earlier, media reported that Moscow has compromising evidence on Trump. Trump himself called allegations about the damaging information a lie, while Moscow said that it is an ‘absolute canard’.
A day before, it was reported that some wealthy sponsor of the Republicans, disaffected to Trump, hired the Fusion GPS private firm to collect compromising materials on the US President-elect.
In September 2016, when the investigation against Trump was launched, Fusion GPS was headed by former journalist of the Wall Street Journal newspaper, Glenn Simpson. Later, he hired a former agent of British MI6, Christopher Steele, for participation in the investigation.
Before, it was reported that the ‘compromising evidence’ was prepared by London’s Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd., employees of which are former agents of the British intelligence. One of its leaders is Steele.
Earlier, British Prime Minister Theresa May said that the author of the ‘compromising evidence’ on Trump does not work for the British government already for a long time.
Media also reported that the report, according to which Moscow has alleged compromising evidence on the US President-elect, was originally prepared by his opponents from the US Republican Party. Later, the US Democratic Party drew its attention to this data.
