Trump Claims Russia Has Nothing On Him: “Are we living in Nazi Germany?”
This comes right after Trump accepts the report that Russia was behind the election hacking.
Trump took to Twitter to defend himself from accusations that Russian operatives claim to have the goods on him and that because of that could be compromised.
An outraged President-elect Donald Trump unleashed a flurry of tweets Wednesday afternoon, ripping intelligence officials over what appears to be a leaked report claiming the Russian government possesses sensitive personal and business information on Trump.
The report, allegedly made by a British ex-intel agent, was given to US officials, CNN reported on Tuesday. A document purporting to be the report was subsequently leaked to Buzzfeed and publicized.
Trump blasted the report on Tuesday, calling allegations Russia was holding potentially compromising secrets “fake news”.
On Wednesday the Russian government also rejected the claim, saying it had no such material on the American President-elect.
“The Kremlin does not have compromising information on Trump,” Russian President Vladimir Putin’s aide Dmitry Peskov said.
Later on Wednesday, Trump again slammed the report, in a series of four tweets, calling it “nonsense”, “fake news”, and comparing its release to a political assassination attempt.
“Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to ‘leak’ into the public. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?,” Trump tweeted.
