President-elect Donald Trump never received a summary of the unsubstantiated claims that Russian spies had collected compromising financial and sexual information about him, high transition source told Fox News Wednesday.
The source said that the intelligence officials informed Trump brought on Friday to the allegations verbally, but added that it “hardly mentioned on the edge.”
A government source told Fox News that the secret Trump, a heads-up, wanted to give services, that the allegations widely circulated, and many of the media sat on the story. The source said the claims not as a “Central element” of Trump’s briefing.
CNN first reported that Trump and President Barack Obama has submitted a two-page summary, which detailed the allegations. The report said the summary was attached to a broader report on the Russian workers’ activities during the election in 2016.
At a contentious press conference earlier on Wednesday, Trump said that he had learned details of the allegations, “outside the meeting” with intelligence officials.
“It’s all fake news. It is fake stuff. It is not going to happen,” Trump said, later adding. “But I have read what was published and I think it is a shame. I think it is an absolute disgrace.”
