“The BBC was under fire today after it claimed a second ‘dirty dossier’ on Donald Trump exists and was accused of attaching too much credibility to the first one” Mailonline reported
Foreign correspondent Paul Wood said last night that former British spy Christopher Steele is not the only person to say the Kremlin has covert footage related to his sex life.
He said a security source told him of ‘more than one tape’ on ‘more than one date’.
Buzzfeed has been widely castigated – including by Trump himself – over publishing the salacious claims even though they have been unverified.
Last night Mr TrumpÂ barracked BBC International Correspondent Ian Pannell,telling the reporter to stand up when he tried to ask a question and then said: ‘BBC News – there’s another beauty’.
â€œI used an intermediary to pass some questions to active duty CIA officers dealing with the case file â€“ they would not speak to me directly.
â€œI got a message back that there was â€˜more than one tapeâ€™, â€˜audio and videoâ€™, on â€˜more than one dateâ€™, in â€˜more than one placeâ€™ â€“ in the Ritz Carlton in Moscow and also in Saint Petersburg.
â€œAnd that the material was â€˜of a sexual natureâ€™.â€
The CIA were said to have indicated that the information telling them of the existence of the tapes was â€œcredibleâ€.BBC foreign correspondent Paul Wood claimed
Earlier Trump hit out at the claims he had been compromised on video as â€œsick and fakeâ€.
â€œA thing like that should have never been written, it should never have been had, and it should certainly never have been released,â€ he said.
â€œItâ€™s all fake news. Itâ€™s phony stuff. It didnâ€™t happen.â€
â€œI am extremely carefulâ€¦. I was in Russia years ago, with the Miss Universe contest, which did very well,â€ he said.
â€œAnd I told many people, â€˜Be careful, because you donâ€™t want to see yourself on television. Cameras all over the place.â€
