Kristof: Rumors about Trump are “Poetic Justice”, but Skepticism Warranted

I do think Democrats should retain skepticism about the allegations that Russia has compromising material on Trump, in the form of his sexual escapades on camera. The Russians would indeed have tried to gather that material, but remember this is unsubstantiated and emerged as opposition research. Sure, it’s poetic justice that a man who trafficked in rumors about President Obama’s birthplace is now subjected to rumors that Russia compromised him, but these may not be any more true than the ones about Obama.
