Stephen Colbert travels to Russia to spend the night in the presidential suite mentioned in the infamous "pee pee tape."

Courtesy of Slate: 

On Thursday, Colbert shared what he calls “the whole damn reason” he went to Russia in the first place: He wanted to find evidence that the Steele dossier, a series of leaked memos full of scandalous allegations about Trump’s campaign’s ties to Russia, was real. But Colbert wasn’t interested in the parts about financial ties and collusion—no, Colbert wanted to find the alleged compromising footage the Kremlin took of Trump watching Russian prostitutes urinate on the bed at the presidential suite at the Moscow Ritz-Carlton. In other words, he wanted to find “the pee pee tape.” 

With that noble mission in mind, Colbert set out through the streets of Moscow to ask bewildered interview subjects and pedestrians whether they have any leads on “the pee pee tape.” And when those questions yielded nothing, he did what any serious investigative journalist worth his salt would do: He rented the presidential suite for a night, bringing along surveillance expert Andrei Soldatov, to help him look for clues. He didn’t find any, but he definitely had a great time cracking urine puns and jumping on the bed. Maybe the real pee pee tape was the friends we made along the way.

Did you ever not realize how much you needed something, until you saw it?

Well that describes me and this bit.

I had no idea how much I would enjoy this until I was in fact enjoying it.

Now, now I can go back to covering the craziness surrounding Donald Trump with a smile on my face, a song in my heart, and absolutely no pee pee in my bed.

    Trump is starting to resemble one of those old guys in the home that wander the halls dragging their dripping cath tube behind them.

    You know ... I just have a feeling that the golden showers/hookers story involving tRump has some truth to it. I think that is why he's trying so hard to stop Mueller from investigating his Russian campaign money connections. There's more to the golden showers story than we know .... but the truth will come out.

      I strongly suspect the 'pee pee' will be revealed, hopefully, it won't show any small hands.

      The old dud is going to be worked up and busy deflecting all his chit. Little pee pee can't be that big of a deal.

      I think it's true but considering everything else, it's pretty mild. Although I can't wait for it to come out and then watch the evangelical hypocrites (looking at you, Mike Pence) justify their support for him.

      All the heads f state have seen it.

    4. I thought the dossier read that the girls were taking a whiz on tRump. Makes a lot more sense that way!

    That room is as garish, and tasteless as his tRump Tower apartment. Maybe he thought he was at home, forgot he was being taped?

    Malcolm Nance Throws Hammer Down On White House, Says Trump Is Under Complete Russian Control

    "He may not even know that he is an asset under your control until you pull that string, and then suddenly you need him to do things for you – and they do."

    Malcolm Nance didn’t mince his words on Saturday morning, saying that Donald Trump’s behavior over the past few years – particularly during his presidency – shows that he is under complete control of Russia, and he may not even know it.

    “Nobody has been able to put their finger on” when Trump actually became an asset of Moscow, but it’s clear that he is one, Nance told MSNBC’s Joy Reid.

    The Constitution specifically bars the president from using the pardon power to prevent his own impeachment and removal. It adds that any official removed through impeachment remains fully subject to criminal prosecution. That provision would make no sense if the president could pardon himself.

    Russia hints at blackmailing Trump with threats of exposing more secret meetings

    And now Russia appears to have issued a not-so-subtle threat about further humiliating Trump if the U.S. does not comply with Russia’s policy demands.

    In an interview with NBC News, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov suggested that in addition to the previously undisclosed meeting between Trump and Putin, there might be even more secret meetings between the two world leaders that have yet to be revealed.

    “They might have met even much more than just three times,” he said, and then added, “Maybe they went to the toilet together.”

    Russia has already issued unequivocal demands for return of its spy compounds in Maryland in New York — which were seized in retaliation for Russia’s interference in the 2016 election — with no strings attached.

    Lavrov described the seizure as “straightforward robbery,” and hinted at other demands Russia wants from the United States.

    Senate intel committee subpoenas the research firm tied to the bombshell Trump-Russia dossier

    1. Anonymous9:29 AM

      Here's a statement from the committee's ranking Democrat, Dianne Feinstein:

      “Glenn Simpson, through his attorney, has declined to voluntarily attend Wednesday’s Judiciary Committee hearing regarding compliance with the Foreign Agents Registration Act," Sen. Dianne Feinstein said in a statement on Friday.

      "Therefore, a subpoena has been issued to compel his attendance. Simpson’s attorney has asserted that his client will invoke his Fifth Amendment rights in response to the subpoena."

      Fusion GPS' work on the Trump-Russia dossier, which contains memos compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, was unrelated to the June 2016 Veselnitskaya/Trump Jr./Manafort meeting, The Washington Post reported, adding that work on the dossier was conducted on a different timeline.

      Trump has previously called the dossier "phony," but the FBI appears to be taking cues from it in its investigation of Russia's meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign in the 2016 US election.

    I wish they would just release those tapes. We know they exist. We don't care. We know that Donald Trump is capable of this because he raped a thirteen year old girl and got away with it. He raped his first wife. His way with women is worst than Bill Cosby.
    What we care about is not that damned tape but to just get Donald out of the White ouse, and he can take his corrupt crew with him. Including Pence. Although that may not happen because the complicit Republican party is on this to the tee, and they put Pence there to look all ethical while Donnie boy gets away with shit. Even tho, we all know that Pence with his beliefs imposed on Gayz would be detrimental.
    Either way we are fucked. It's a nightmare. Americans are at fault because we are fat, lazy, and only concerned when it happens in our back yard. We are going to pay a high price for our selfish stupidity.

      Donald Trump watching two whores pee on a bed is hardly anything incriminating. According to the account that has been published he didn't touch them, he didn't do anything but watch them piss on a bed. Big deal. This won't be the thing that brings him down.

    This whole govt head is nuts. This is not the America I know.
    It is like those haunting shows, families stay even though things get worse and worse and you watch thinking how stupid can they be? It is so obvious. Just get out.
    Just get rid of the old fart who needs to be in a home! And in prison as well as his whole family.
