What this scandal really needs is a good, solid name that doesn't end with "gate". All the lasting ones have that: Iran-Contra, Whitewater, The Lewinsky Scandal / Affair, Katrina, Birtherism, Benghazi. For example, "The Kompromat Situation" or something along those lines, eventually shortened to just Kompromat. Though it would be nice if it had a structure that encouraged future scandals or individuals or activities to be named after it. Like "The Russification."
