One of Trump’s recent brushes with scandal reminds me of a story I heard years ago about President Sukarno of Indonesia when the KGB ran a “kompromat” sting against him back in the Nikita Khrushchev era.
KGB agents of the USSR were experts at the art of “kompromat” or sexual attack. Targets were researched thoroughly in order to learn their sexual preferences. The first contact with an object appeared to be incidental, but it was all over with blackmail when it was explained to the victim that he had no way out other than to cooperate with Soviet intelligence.
Indonesian President Ahmed Sukarno appeared to be an ideal target because he was known for his sexual passion. The KGB sent a group of young girls to him during his visit to Moscow. The girls got acquainted with Sukarno on a plane disguised as air hostesses, then he invited them to his hotel room in Moscow and arranged a grand orgy.
The orgy was secretly filmed and Sukarno was later invited to view the result. The KGB were expecting him to get really frightened and agree to cooperate with them at once.
Sukarno had other ideas, he asked for copies to take back to Indonesia to be shown in movie theatres. Sukarno told the flabbergasted KGB agents that the people of Indonesia would be very proud of him, if they could see him doing the nasty with Russian girls.
Putin is famously ex KGB.
