Did 4Chan Troll The CIA?

On Tuesday night, BuzzFeed News published an explosive, yet completely unverified, dossier alleging that President-elect Donald Trump engaged in a whole host of, shall we say unusual, sexual activities in Moscow. Matt already wrote about the basics of the report and the blackmail threat, so I’m not going to delve into that.

What’s worth talking about, however, are swirling claims on Reddit that 4chan users on the board /pol/ completely made the entire thing up. According to a variety of posts on the pro-Trump subreddit r/The_Donald, a user on /pol/, a 4chan board, made up the most salacious story in the report. He then mailed it to anti-Trump Republican strategist Rick Wilson, who then went to the CIA. The story was then included on the dossier published Tuesday by BuzzFeed News.

If this is true, this effectively means that 4chan trolled the U.S. intelligence system and the majority of the U.S. media with what’s basically Donald Trump erotic fanfiction, which is terrifying.

While literally no aspect of anything that was reported tonight by both BuzzFeed News and 4chan has been confirmed or verified, it is an odd coincidence that a 4chan post from prior to the election seems to match up with what was released on Tuesday.

Additionally, WikiLeaks says that the report published by BuzzFeed is “not an intelligence report” and that it is not consistent with the style of other reports.

Wilson denied that his source was from /pol/.

As for Trump? He says it’s all fake news.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see if 4chan pulled off what is possibly the greatest troll game in internet history.

    These things on the left are making a mockery of this country. The American people are tired of this crap. We have a country that needs to be repaired because of the damage these things were allowed to create these past eight years. This attack on Jeff Sessions last night by a black senator who will be testifying against him is arrogant. Why is Mr. Sessions accused of being racist? Is it because he has a Southern accent?? PATHETIC!!!

    I heard today that the black Senator worked with Sessions in congress to pass bills that both Senators wanted. Just why would this Senator choose to stab Senator Sessions in the back and act like he hated the man that he had worked with???? I just wonder how much was this Senator paid to turn on Sessions?? It must have been a hell of a lot of blood money to do something as low as that!!. And these people bringing in a elderly black man to bring up what happened in Selma, Alabama 50 years ago and try to claim Senator Sessions had something to do with what happened on a bridge…what a bunch of desperate losers these Democrats have sunk too. All of these skunks that are up for reelection in the next two or three years hopefully will be kicked out of office.

    I don’t know if suing some of these crazies that seem to be printing fake news about president-elect Trump even admitting to not being able to prove a damn thing about the garbage they are printing. I know movie stars used to sue companies like that all the time and win their cases. I’d love to see them in court trying to prove the garbage they printed.

    Fake news from CNN (the Clinton News Network). We the people are behind our President Elect Donald J. Trump. The media has no credibility. MAGA! You go President Trump!
