Congressional Russia investigators are studying newly unearthed documents that are being described as a "second dossier" containing uncorroborated allegations about President Trump's activities in Russia this one compiled by a freelance journalist. "I certainly think it's something worth examining," Rep. Peter King, R-New York, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told ABC News in an interview about the second dossier. "How far we go depends on what's there." Investigators with the Senate Intelligence Committee are seeking to interview the author of the second dossier, Cody Shearer, a freelance journalist, a congressional source told ABC News. Shearer has told others he prepared the documents as part of his work as an independent journalist, according to a source familiar with the effort.
The new documents focus largely on unverified, salacious allegations that Trump was the victim of what Russians call a "honey pot" scheme, in which a target is secretly videotaped during a sexual liaison, and that tape is then used to blackmail or coerce the target.
This alleged effort to compromise Trump was said to have occurred in 2013, during Trump's visit to Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant, which he helped produce, the document alleges. It also alleges that videos are being held in vaults in Bulgaria, Israel and Moscow.
