    Just a final indignation to Theresa May's premiership on how weak she truly was by not insisting that Sir Kim Darroch remain in his position and if Trump doesn't like it, then he can lump it.

    It seams that the American president has the license to criticise everyone, But others don’t have the license in his opinion to criticise him in return, Respect is Earned it’s not given, It’s about time that all the world leaders condemn trump and tell him the truths that he is a bully and the biggest racist America has ever had for president. Shame on all the enablers who support his vile racist comments.

    "Sir Kim Darroch vouched for British ex-spy Christopher Steele who put together the Dirty Dossier on Trump and told US officials he 'was "absolutely legit"' "
    by Harry Howard For Mailonline Published: 21:08 EDT, 13 July 2019
    Sir Kim's comments revealed in latest leaks from memos to Downing Street
    Mr Steele's so-called 'dodgy dossier' alleged Mr Trump colluded with Russia to fix 2016 election
    Also claimed he paid prostitutes to urinate on him in a Moscow hotel room
    Sir Kim was asked by a U.S. official if Mr Steele, a former MI6 spy, was 'legit'
    Britain's former ambassador to the U.S. vouched for the credibility of Christopher Steele, the author of the explosive dossier detailing Donald Trump's alleged ties to Russia.
    Sir Kim Darroch, who quit his post after leaked diplomatic cables revealed his outspoken criticism of President Trump's administration and personality, backed the former MI6 spy when asked by a U.S. official.
    Mr Steele's so-called 'dodgy dossier' had alleged that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to fix the 2016 election and that he paid prostitutes to urinate on him in a Moscow hotel room.

    And the same leaked diplomatic cables which revealed Sir Kim's damaging comments about President Trump, in which he called his administration 'inept', also showed that Sir Kim backed Mr Steele's dossier, the Sunday Telegraph reported.
    Asked if Mr Steel, was 'legit', Sir Kim had replied: 'Absolutely'.
    Steele, who runs a private intelligence firm, had supplied the dossier to an outside company used by Hillary Clinton's election committee.

    It contained unverified information that Trump was vulnerable to blackmail from Russia and had engaged in 'golden showers' with prostitutes during a 2013 trip to Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant.
    Leaked details of the dossier were seized upon by Trump's detractors as evidence that Russia's President Vladamir Putin had interfered in the election.
    As well as supplying the dossier to the Clinton campaign Steele also handed it over to American and British intelligence agencies as he was worried about the national security implications.
    Mr Steele's so-called 'dodgy dossier' had alleged that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to fix the 2016 election and that he paid prostitutes to urinate on him in a Moscow hotel room
    Mr Steele's so-called 'dodgy dossier' had alleged that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to fix the 2016 election and that he paid prostitutes to urinate on him in a Moscow hotel room
    However, Mr Trump has since been cleared by special counsel Robert Mueller whose long-anticipated report had looked into allegations of Russian collusion.
    Special Counsel Robert Mueller exonerated Trump of conspiring with the Russians to win the Presidency.
    Since being named as the author of the dossier, Steele kept a low profile and was not seen in public until he was tracked down by MailOnline to a Surrey railway station in March
    Looking shocked that his cover was blown, he ran towards a car driven by his wife that just two minutes earlier had dropped him off at the station for his commute to his London office.
    He stared rigidly ahead as his wife Katherine drove him the short distance back to his home.
    After a career with MI6 that included working at the British Embassy in Moscow Steele left in 2009 to set up his own company Orbis Business Inteligence with another former spy.
    It was this company that was hired to write the dossier into alleged Trump-Russia activities.
    In the latest tranche of leaked cables, Sir Kim wrote in a memo to Downing Street that Donald Trump's decision to abandon the Iran nuclear deal was an act of 'diplomatic vandalism' to spite his predecessor Barack Obama.

    Good, the UK is not our friend, when are you muppets going to report the real foreign collusion was UK intelligence with Rogue US intelligence who wanted to control the outcome. When they didn’t get their way they attempted a coup of a duly elected President! If you people don’t start reporting the actual facts you lose even the trapped airport audience.

    I'm British and from your report i have only just become aware that these leaked cables are historical, that is from two years back, I seem to have missed that detail in UK reporting. I assumed this was somewhat more current, after all
    "we really don't believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal, less dysfunctional , less unpredictable, less faction-riven, less diplomatically clumsy and inept" could have been written at any time right up to today. Witness the allegation that Trump only pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal to spite President Obama. If this was a recent cable i would have expected Sir Kim to resign on grounds of being slow on the uptake.
    Of course two years back we had (I believe) one Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary- who is at the moment likely to be our next PM -and who did not give Sir Kim full and unequivocal support in a campaign rally unlike our current Foreign Sec Jeremy Hunt (his rival for PM) who did. If it should come out that Boris is behind the leaks of cables, in a mistaken effort to improve relations with the dysfunctional Trump administration, I fear his Premiership could be a lot shorter and less successful than PM Theresa May's has been.

    All ambassadors send what think of current events in the country they represent. ALL of those communications between those countries should be private. Someone at the British Embassy leaked it which means it political moment in England (England confirmed the leak was on their end).

    Very, very unfortunate that he resigned voluntarily or forced to resign for articulating what is truly obvious. Number 45 frequently speaks negative untruths against others. The U K Ambassador spoke in truth, and other countries agree.

    Trump is a habitual criminal of passing adverse/racist remarks against the respectable. He passed racist remarks against Sadiq Khan the London Mayor, thereafter he bitterly criticized Theresa May and now he hit the British Ambassador in US. Whither America is going? The sole super power the sole rogue administration.

    The UK lets its Ambassador go for doing his job AND doing it well!
    The interesting thing is the Ambassador was spot-on about Donald Trump.
    For some reason, I've always thought the Britts were bright, no-nonsense, straight shooters!
    I am now shocked that they so easily turned into putty in the hands of this sick idiot president
    of ours, Donald Trump.
    Not sure why I feel sad but I do. I'll never look at the Brittish the same again.

    Well, the Ambassador helped trump to feel more power, not a good thing for those of us who know just how dangerous this low IQ, degenerate, running rampant with our government like he is the damned king or dictator he imagines himself to be!! trump is one sick thin skinned little man, he is beyond disgusting !! This man, who has class, unlike the clod in the White House, was too nice in his estimate of trump. This freak, we have, sits in his safe place puts his tiny fingers on his phone to tweet out the most vile tweets, slandering people, every day!! I wish someone could push this piece of human waste out of the White House!! I hope they find the guy, who leaked this, most likely one who wanted his job, I can't believe Britain let this happen!!

    Trump didn't fall for the British smear disguised as a leak. It was just the parting shot of the inept, incompetent, clumsy, and stupid Theresa May. The British standard now is: we can viciously smear you and lie about you as long as we never 'intended' to do so in public even though it is now public. And because we didn't 'intend' the lies to be public, even though now they are public, you cannot hit back, because we were just smearing you behind your back until we made it public. Understand?

    How many people have we heard complain about President Trump the last 3 years? They say he doesn't know what he's doing, they say he's inept, they say he's an idiot... And yet he keeps winning, and winning and winning. The stock market is booming, tax cuts for everyone both business and personal, 6 million new jobs in the United States since he became President, no more nuclear threats from North Korea, bringing in billions of dollars from China because of tariffs, the Mexican Government now doing something about illegal aliens crossing into the United States because of the threat of tariffs, pulling our troops out of country after country and winding down all these endless wars, moving the embassy of Israel to Jerusalem where it belongs, building the wall to keep out illegal aliens and drugs and human traffickers... I'd say this man knows how to win. His opponents are just big cry babies. And most of the disruption in the Trump Administration has been between the globalists who hate America and the patriots that love the Godly principles that inspired the founding of this nation. Jeremiah 17:9... The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, who can know it.
