Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA - NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 11 January 2017

"I win an election easily, a great "movement" is verified, and crooked opponents try to belittle our victory with FAKE NEWS. A sorry state!" Trump wrote.
Trump slams ‘fake’ US intelligence leaks about him as another shot at him, comparing the situation with Nazi Germany.
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?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 11 January 2017
The CNN reported earlier on Wednesday, citing US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings, that American intelligence chiefs briefed Trump last Friday about the alleged evidence that Russian operatives had comprising personal and financial information about the US President-elect.
According to the CNN, the allegations were presented in a two-page synopsis that was appended to a report on Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 US presidential election. The allegations came from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible.
The online news site BuzzFeed posted a document, which was a full version of the former British intelligence agent’s report, according to the site’s data. At the same time, the web portal acknowledged the report as unverified and prepared for Trump’s political foes.
