On MSNBC and Bloomberg's With All Due Respect hosted by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann they didn’t seem to think these Russia stories about Trump would be game changers prior to the election. But the public loves sexy stories, and they don’t necessarily have to involve sex; but Russia’s notoriously effective and sometimes very dangerous FSB would have been negligent if they didn’t try to compromise billionaire Donald Trump when he was in Moscow for his 2013 Miss Universe pageant. This part of the Russia story could also involve sex.
This morning I wrote about how the FSB might have lured Trump into a classic spy honey trap and have videos of him in sexually compromising activities with a minor, or for that matter since he was married, with an adult woman.
This is what I wrote this morning:
The Russians may have blackmail material they can, or already have, used on Donald Trump.
Since the time immemorial, spy agencies have set honey traps to lure susceptible men (and women) into sexual liaisons or relationships which they later could use either to blackmail foreigners or force them to betray their own countries.
With Trump they easily could have found a 15 year old to come on to him and play on Trump’s sexual proclivities. Of course they would have videos of everything he did.
Considering that Putin is a former KGB agent I would be surprised if he didn’t order FSB (the new KGB) to get something he could use against someone like Trump who he might need in his pocket in the future.
If he did this when Trump was nominated he must have broke out the Stolichnaya Gold vodka, Beluga caviar, and Piramides Edicion Limitada 2008 Cuban cigars to celebrate his spymaster prescience.
Are honey traps real? You bet!
Oh, they're real. Honey traps, also called "honey pots," have been a favorite spying tactic as long as sex and espionage have existed—in other words, forever. Perhaps the earliest honey trap on record was the betrayal of Samson by Delilah, who revealed Samson's weakness (his hair) to the Philistines in exchange for 1,100 pieces of silver, as described in the book of Judges. The practice continued into the 20th century and became a staple of Cold War spy craft. Governments around the world set up honey traps to this day, but it's an especially common practice in Russia and China. The Central Intelligence Agency doesn't comment on whether its agents use their sexuality to obtain information, but current and former intelligence officials say it does happen occasionally.

The old line, “caught with a dead girl or a live boy” might apply to Trump with his supporters. In fact the dead girl part might not count. They know he's a sick piece of work and they seem to like it.
Okay, you brought of dead girls… and the FSB could have pulled that off too… Not to dwell on the most tawdry aspect of what a video might show… oh hell… consider that it might show that Trump’s sexual appetite is something most people or at least most women would find offensive, weird, or at least on the fringes. Either that or the videos show him in dire need of Viagra.
