U.S. Intelligence Has Confirmed Parts Of The Dossier About Trump's Alleged Ties To Russia [View all]

BuzzFeed News
February 10, 2017

US intelligence has confirmed several details in the explosive dossier about President Donald Trump's ties to Russia, two American intelligence officers told BuzzFeed News on Friday.

CNN initially reported late Friday afternoon that parts of the 35-page dossier, which Trump has dismissed entirely as "fake news," stood up under further investigation from US intelligence and law enforcement.
But CNN said it has not confirmed whether any of the details relate to Trump.
The CNN report also indicated that the intercepted calls that led to the confirmation were solely between foreign nationals and picked up during routine intelligence gathering.

An intelligence source told BuzzFeed News that CNN's reporting was accurate, saying that the details that have been confirmed "are not the salacious allegations" of a sexual encounter in a Moscow hotel "but more about Trump's relationship with Russia."
He declined to provide more details about the nature of that relationship calling it "closely held."
