Tuesday evening CNN broke an extraordinary claim by intelligence chiefs that the Russians were in possession of compromising information about President-elect Donald Trump.
President-elect Donald Trump tweeted this, seemingly in response:
FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2017
Trump has questioned the credibility of the intelligence agencies and even opined that there might not have been any hacking at all. He has also denied that there was any contact between his campaign and the Russian government during the presidential contest, which the new report also affirms.
