Moscow (CNN) — Russian President Vladimir Putin today said he has a dossier which proves that Democratic mayors of major American cities are colluding with Donald Trump to influence the American election.
The bombshell document alleges that Portland mayor Ted Wheeler was caught on covert video having a sexual affair with an unlicensed body sculpting expert named “Black Madam”, and that the Trump campaign is blackmailing Wheeler into allowing Antifa to prosecute a violent siege of the city.
Putin also said Trump operatives used “pharmacological torture” to force Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan to say the violent takeover of a downtown “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” was actually a “summer of love.”
Supporters of mayor Durkan say the dossier is false, and that the Russian strongman is actually colluding with “Socialist Alternative” city council member Kshama Sawant, who has called for the mayor’s resignation.
President Putin, a former Director of Russia’s Federal Security Service, said, “I’ve been president of Russia for more than 20 years. Why would I invent this stuff?”
The Trump campaign says it “categorically denies” the Russian allegations.
Democrat mayors say the headline is false, but admit some of the details are true.
“I’m not colluding, with Trump,” said mayor Durkan. “Trump broke me.”
Mayor Wheeler replied to Putin’s allegations by sending another in a long string of protest letters to President Trump, refusing federal aid for the riots. “There is no place for looting, arson, or vandalism in our city,” Wheeler wrote.
Putin called Wheeler’s letter “just part of the mayor’s cover story.”
