Let me see if I can break this down. @DavidCornDC is correct insomuch as the dossier does say that the Russians dangled biz ops in front of Trump to cultivate and co-opt him. Yet, predictably, he uses the liberal license of omission to mask the fallacy of his entire point.
Corn fails to mention - with good reason, because it would kill his entire narrative with @brithume - that the dossier ALSO says that Trump didn't bite. The dossier notes that any number of deals related to the World Cup were offered, and refused.
As for the Trump Tower Moscow "deal" - it's worth noting that Michael Cohen resorted to googling an email address for someone at the secretariat to try to engage someone in Russia on the tower deal. So, three things: 1-The dossier is bullshit whether characterized accurately or..
...inaccurately, as does Corn here; 2 - The dossier says Russia dangled World Cup deals and Trump turned them down; and 3 - How could the Trump Tower Moscow deal have escaped the Steele dragnet of high-level informants and consequently not made an appearance in his dossier?
Could it be because there'd been no public reporting of the Tower negotiations for Steele to turn into a comment from a "high-level source close to Putin"? Or could it be because two guys in Trump's camp working for 6 months to try to get a meeting doesn't scream KOMPROMAT?
I love that @DavidCornDC uses Cohen's desperate attempts to engage someone, anyone in Russia about the Tower deal as support for his argument that the fix was in. If the fix was in - if Putin was throwing shiny biz objects at Trump to get him to bite...why's Cohen googling?
