President Trump met with President Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation this morning and held a press conference after their 90-minute talk dragged into two hours.
During the presser, President Trump was asked directly not once but twice to confront his Russian counterpart over the interference in the 2016 election on his behalf – and both times, Trump sided with Putin over the conclusions of seventeen different American intelligence agencies and the conclusions of the intelligence agencies of our NATO allies.

Asked if he believes US intel agencies or Putin about Russia's interference in the 2016 election, Trump immediately starts pushing debunked DNC & Hillary conspiracy theories.

But most tellingly, Vladimir Putin himself was asked by the Associated Press‘ Jonathan Lemire whether or not the Russian Federation is holding compromising information on Donald Trump – perhaps a video of the president engaging in perverted sexual acts with prostitutes while visiting Russia during for the 2013 Miss Universe contest – and Putin laughed and then pointedly did not deny the allegations.
Asked if he has compromising material on Trump, Putin laughs. "I did hear these rumours that we allegedly collected compromising material on Mr. Trump when he visited Moscow…I didn't even know that he was in Moscow…he was a private individual, nobody informed me."

Former FBI director James Comey once revealed that Trump is “obsessed” with the pee tape and with debunking it:
During his many meetings with the President, Comey says the Trump brought up the allegations at least four times, along with offering a host of desperate explanations that were supposed to convince the FBI director that the allegations were false. “I’m a germaphobe…There’s no way I would let people pee on each other around me. No way.”
The sworn testimony of his own bodyguard, Kurt Schiller, reveals that when he and Trump were in Moscow for the 2013 Miss Universe pageant, a Russian businessman offered to send Donald Trump “five women” to his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow – but he quickly insisted that Trump had “refused” because he “doesn’t do that stuff,” later adding that the rumor was “bulls**t.”
Given that Trump has been accused of sexual assault or harassment by at least fourteen different women, has been linked to the sex parties held by notorious sexual pedophile Jeffery Epstein, and is generally notorious for his constant philandering and voracious appetite for women, it is quite obvious that he does in fact “do that stuff.”
One has to wonder at why he’s devoted so much time and energy to worrying about what he maintains is a libelous rumor – and considering the way in which he just publicly bent over backward to deny and discredit the unarguable reality that Russia interfered in the 2016 election, it’s safe to say that there’s much more at play here than meets the eye.
