As Special Counsel Robert Mueller continues his probe into whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to meddle in the 2016 presidential election, a new book is about to be released which claims that Trump has been compromised by Russia for over three decades.
Daily Mail reports that a new book by Craig Unger, entitled ‘House of Trump, House of Putin; the Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia‘, claims that President Trump is and has been a Russian asset since 1987.
In 1987 Donald Trump travelled to Moscow, and Unger says that the former head of counterintelligence for the KGB, Oleg Kalugin, insists that Trump would have very likely been filmed with prostitutes at that time, saying that Trump had ‘many young ladies at his disposal’ and that Russian spies would have jumped at the opportunity.
Kalugin also claims that Trump is an easy ‘Russian asset’ considering how greedy he has been over the years. He goes as far as saying that Trump is most likely aware of the existence of blackmail material often referred to as ‘kompromat’.
If Russia was likely willing to gather ‘kompromat’ on Trump 31 years ago, it would seem to give further credence to the Steele Dossier which claims that Russia had gathered ‘kompromat’ on Trump back in 2013 as well. It’s worth noting that no proof of this blackmail material was provided to Unger by Kalugin — only his opinion on what most likely would have taken place at the time of Trump’s visit to Moscow.
The book also looks into Trump’s other ties to shady Russian officials and businessmen dating back to the 1970s. It will be released on August 14th.
