Documents from a senior level Kremlin meeting in 2016 apparently say that Russia had compromising information about then presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to a report from The Guardian.
The key meeting took place on 22 January 2016, the papers suggest, with the Russian president, his spy chiefs and senior ministers all present.
The paper said it verified the documents which indicate a plan to support trump’s candidacy and that western intelligence agencies were also aware of the documents.
The documents describe Trump as “impulsive, mentally unstable and unbalanced individual who suffers from an inferiority complex.” The Russian leaders believed that having Trump in the White House would push the U.S. into “social turmoil” and weaken Washington’s negotiating position.
The documents also claim the Kremlin had unspecified “kompromat, or potentially compromising material” on Trump.
