Russian Politician on Salacious Trump Tape: ‘Of Course We Have It!’
Russian Politician Claims Government Has Unverified Kompromat On Donald Trump
Tensions between the United States and Russia have certainly escalated recently. The most recent maneuver was the United States seizing three Russian diplomatic posts in San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and New York over the weekend. But if there is any truth to the salacious rumors of the past, the administration of Republican Donald Trump might be playing with fire by angering the Russian government.
Nikita Isaev, leader of the far-right New Russia Movement, appeared on Russia-24 and made an allegation not likely to make Trump too happy. In retaliation for the latest diplomatic moves, Isaev suggested embarrassing the Republican by releasing salacious tapes Russia is alleged to have from an unverified dossier released to the public earlier this year. As translated by Julia Davis, he stated:
ISAEV: Let’s hit Trump with our Kompromat!
HOST: Do we have it?
ISAEV: Of course we have it!

Kompromat is the Russian word for blackmail material used against politicians. Isaev is referring to the explosive unverified dossier published by Buzzfeed in January which suggested the Russian government had compromising information on Donald Trump. Trump and former President Barack Obama were briefed on the existence of the dossier by then-FBI Director James Comey, who was later controversially fired by Trump.

Tensions between Russia and the United States are likely to continue to escalate in the foreseeable future, considering multiple moves being suggested by both sides. Vladimir Putin issued a stern warning today against the U.S. supplying weapons to Ukraine, saying the “number of casualties could increase” if such a decision was made. Meanwhile, Democrats in the U.S. Senate are pushing to ban the Defense Department from using Russian-based Kaspersky Lab software because of the firms ties to Russian intelligence.
The situation in North Korea has also created more bad blood between the U.S. and Russia. In a Tweet, Donald Trump floated the idea of ending trade with any country doing business with North Korea. Putin, while condemning the recent weapons tests by North Korea, responded with some rather unflattering words directed at those considering such a move:
“It’s ridiculous to put us on the same (sanctions) list as North Korea and then ask for our help in imposing sanctions on North Korea,” said Putin.
“This is being done by people who mix up Australia with Austria,” he added.

All that said, it’s clear that the relationship between the two powers is not getting any better at the moment. And if there is an ounce of truth to the unverified rumors of Russian kompromat on Republican Donald Trump, then maybe they will see the light of day as this situation continues to deteriorate.
Or maybe this is just another piece of Russian disinformation meant to disrupt American democracy. When will we ever really know?
