It wasn't a real intelligence report. The buzz feed posted thing is some unsouppperted crap allegedly put together by some fm mi6 agent. But it was clearly based on opposition research crwater by GOP and Dems. Basically it's unsubstantiated crap that got telephone gamed into an intelligence report.
And this report was being passed around backchannels. McCain forwarded it to the FBI. But a lot of people had it, including likely many journalists.
The CIA briefed trump about it to warn him that this bs was being circulated. They didn't believe it was accurate. However some shitlib or Mormon at the CIA leaked the meeting. Which allowed CNN to have cover to run a story about it.
