Donald Trump, just days from taking over the White House, slammed U.S. intelligence and the media for fueling a fake news report that made it seem as if Russia was in possession of sexually sensitive information about the incoming commander-in-chief that could be used as blackmail.

But turns out that this news, which came via a faked 4Chan report that was then reported by Buzzfeed, Cosmopolitan and CNN, was false.
And Trump took to Twitter to express his outrage.
He wrote: “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?”
And then this: “Russia just said the unverified report paid for by political opponents is ‘A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FABRICATION, UTTER NONSENSE.’ Very unfair!”
And in another: “Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA – NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!”
And one more: “I win an election easily, a great ‘movement’ is verified, and crooked opponents try to belittle our victory with FAKE NEWS. A sorry state!”
Russia spokesman Dmitry Peskov called the allegations against Trump a lie.
“The Kremlin does not have compromising information about Trump,” he said, Russia’s state-run media TASS reported. “It’s a total hoax, absolute fabrication and utter nonsense. The Kremlin does not collect compromising information. [It’s] pulp fiction.”
Trump, in earlier tweets, said similarly.
His tweet: “FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!”
