Trump Reacts To Claims Russians May Have Compromising Info: 'FAKE NEWS!'

Randall Hill

President-elect Donald Trump appeared to respond Tuesday night on, of course, Twitter to explosive CNN and Buzzfeed reports on documents alleging Russian operatives have "compromising" information on him.

He fired off an all-caps declaration: "FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!"

Trump's transition team repeatedly declined comment to CNN on its report, citing anonymous U.S. officials, that the President-elect had been presented with a two-page synopsis of allegations that Russian actors have “compromising personal and financial information” about him during a briefing last week with the nation's most senior intelligence officials.

Trump also shared a response from his corporate lawyer, Michael Cohen, whom a dossier compiled by a former British intelligence official and published by Buzzfeed alleged had met with Kremlin officials in Prague during the presidential campaign.
