A former British ambassador to Russia played a major part in alerting U.S. intelligence agencies to the existence of an unverified dossier alleging that President-elect Donald Trump engaged in “perverted sex acts” at a ritzy Moscow hotel while colluding with the Kremlin, according to a report. Andrew Wood, who served as Britain’s head of mission in Moscow between 1995 and 2000, told The Independent that he met Arizona Sen. John McCain at an international security conference in Canada after Trump’s election this past November. The two spoke at length about a 35-page document that claimed Trump was being blackmailed by Russia over “perverted” sexual activity he engaged in during a visit to Moscow in 2013. The document, which cannot be corroborated by the Daily News, also claimed that Trump’s campaign cooperated with the Kremlin in its effort to sway the 2016 presidential election in his favor.
