Hours after explosive reports surfaced that Russian officials have damning information on Donald Trump — which could be used to blackmail the president-elect — he staged a press conference denying the allegations.
CNN reported on Tuesday that Trump was previously told by U.S. intelligence officials that the Russians have major dirt on him. BuzzFeed then released some of the alleged intelligence correspondence, which includes unverified claims that Trump hired prostitutes to urinate on a Moscow hotel bed that Barack and Michelle Obama once slept on.
The president-elect called the report a "disgrace" and comdemned BuzzFeed for releasing it. He also got into shouting matches with reporters and called CNN "terrible."
