Ex-MI6 Officer In Hiding After Trump Dossier

By BBC News:

An ex-MI6 officer who is believed to have prepared memos claiming Russia has compromising material on US President-elect Donald Trump is now in hiding, the BBC understands.

Christopher Steele, who runs a London-based intelligence firm, is believed to have left his home this week.

The memos contain unsubstantiated claims that Russian security officials have compromising material on Mr Trump.

The US president-elect said the claims were “fake news” and “phoney stuff”.

Mr Steele has been widely named as the author of a series of memos – which have been published as a dossier in some US media – containing extensive allegations about Mr Trump’s personal life and his campaign’s relationship with the Russian state.

Among the allegations are that Moscow has a video recording of Mr Trump with prostitutes and damaging information about his business activities.
