It actually talks about more than just Trump, but obviously that's going to be the headline. The top secret document explains why a Trump victory would be in Russia's interests, namely that it would further divide American society, weaken the American presidency, and strengthen Putin's negotiating position, tantalizingly referencing Russia's kompromat on Trump from his previous unofficial visits. Readers are directed to an appendix for details on the kompromat, but sadly, the appendix was not included in the leak.

It's most likely fake or purposefully leaked.

Never consider any document from or about Russia intelligence to be valid. They have "leaked" bullshit for a century.

I could see that. It matches up very closely with common knowledge. If reality is something other than common knowledge, it would behoove Russia to lend some weight to the common knowledge.

Right, it's basically just a repeat of 2015/16. They should have never published it.

Maybe this "leak" is also designed to divide American society?
