Earlier, CNN said that US intelligence services informed Trump and Obama that the Russian security services had certain incendiary material compromising the president-elect. According to the TV channel, both Presidents were briefed about that last week at a meeting focused on a classified report on the Russian interference in the U.S. elections.
Later, BuzzFeed published the entire document saying it had been prepared by Trump’s opponents informed by an ex-British spy and contains some spelling errors.
Trump had used the "political witch hunt" expression before, in late December, speaking of the cyber attack charges against Russia.
