It seems like Russian President Vladimir Putin may be deciding that popular vote loser Donald Trump is more trouble than he’s worth, after he failed to lift US sanctions against Russia multiple times. Russian officials are speaking out against Trump, mocking him, taunting, and now, talking about releasing blackmail material.
A Russian debate took place on Russian state-run television where several Russian officials discussed various political issues. One of which was was Nikita Isaev, the Director of the Russian Institute of Contemporary Economics.
He said, “Let’s hit Trump with our Kompromat!”, which certainly looks like a reference to the infamous Pee Pee Tape or, at the very least, some type of other blackmail material the Kremlin is holding over Trump’s head. (NOTE: In Russian politics, kompromat, short for “compromising material” is damaging information about a politician or other public figure used to create negative publicity, for blackmail, or for ensuring loyalty. )
The host asked, “Do we have it?” Isaev responded “Of course we have it!”
You can watch the hour-long Russian-language video can be watched here.
Julia Davis brought this to our attention when she pointed out Nikita Isaev’s call for the release of Kompromat. The interested part here is that someone in Isaev’s position wouldn’t have said something like this on Kremlin-controlled TV unless Vladimir Putin gave him permission to say it.
Could it be that Putin has grown tired of Trump and wants to do everything he can to finish him off quickly and stop the bleeding? And why not? Putin wanted Trump in the White House, he should be the one to push him out.
We will be eagerly awaiting the release of this thing, as it will be explosive, without question.
