President-elect Donald Trump compared media reports that Russia has compiled a dossier of embarrassing sexual-related intelligence on him to Nazi-era propaganda.
“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 early Wednesday morning.
Meanwhile Wednesday, the Kremlin said it was "total nonsense" that Russian officials had assembled a file of compromising information on Trump.
Two US officials said on Tuesday evening that the heads of four US intelligence agencies had last week presented Trump with classified documents which included unverified claims that Russian intelligence operatives had compromising information about him.
On Tuesday evening, Trump dismissed the reports that Russia had compromising information on him. "FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!" he wrote in a Twitter post.
