The Independent reports:
A Russian politician has threatened to “hit Donald Trump with our Kompromat” on state TV. Speaking on Russia-24, Nikita Isaev, leader of the far-right New Russia Movement, said the compromising material should be released in retaliation over the closure of several Russian diplomatic compounds across the US.
When asked whether Russia has such material, Mr Isaev, who is also director of the Russian Institute of Contemporary Economics, replied: “Of course we have it!”
An explosive dossier compiled by a former British spy earlier in the year included salacious allegations about the former real estate mogul’s personal conduct, which many speculated could leave him vulnerable to blackmail by the Kremlin.
The claims made in the dossier remain unverified, with Mr Trump labelling them “fake news”, but the special investigation into Mr Trump’s ties to Russia has been heating up in recent months.
