President Donald Trump repeatedly asked then-FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation into his former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and to pledge his allegiance. He also brought up the subject of Russian âhookers.â
âHe said he had nothing to do with Russia, had not been involved with hookers in Russia, and had always assumed he was being recorded when in Russia,â read just one startling section of Comeyâs opening statement to the Senate Intelligence Committee, released Wednesday.
The comments allegedly came in a March 30 phone call Trump placed to Comey as he described the âcloudâ that he said was impeding his ability to lead the country. The conversation took place two-and-a-half months after classified documents were presented to then-President Barack Obama and President-elect Trump featuring allegations that Russian operatives had highly compromising information on the Republican.
The report was based on memos from former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, who once served in Moscow, on a report into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The veracity of the memos was not verified but quickly gained the title the âgolden shower memosâ because of one particularly salacious detail contained within them.
They describe videos taken of Trump in a Moscow hotel room in 2013 together with Russian prostitutes. And not just together with them but âemploying a number of prostitutes to perform a âgolden showersâ [urination] show in front of him,” according to the memos.
