First off ... does anyone think a sex tape would hurt Donald Trump at this point? Seriously, if video of him being pissed on by a bunch of Baltic hookers leaked tonight, do you really think THAT would be the end of his career? We caught the man bragging about sexually assaulting women to Billy goddamn Bush, and he was still elected president. A sex tape might actually win him some support.
Secondly, the "White House leak" cited in that article? It's actually just a Twitter account, @RoguePOTUSStaff.
The account is purportedly run by stealth rational people hiding inside the Trump administration. There's no evidence its real. And the pseudonymous tweeter doesn't even make any direct claims about "blackmail." They just claim that someone said the president's behavior was "suspicious" during a call with Putin.
And while we're all flipping out over whether or not the Kremlin has video of our president fucking, we seem to be breezing past their ongoing efforts to influence global politics via clickbait. Russian propagandists are fighting it out in the digital battlefields of Finland, Germany, Ukraine, and right here in the U.S. The Russian government operates an internet "troll factory" in St. Petersburg. In 2007, the Kremlin's hackers took the entire nation of Estonia offline in the largest cyber attack in history.
