Russia Claims it has compromising info on Trump: report

Reports in the US media indicate deep ties between Donald Trump and Moscow and claim that Russia had material it could use to blackmail him. Moscow rejects the claim as a "complete fabrication."

Intelligence officials have briefed both President Barack Obama and his successor Donald Trump on a unverified report claiming Russian spies have "compromising" personal and financial information about the president-elect, US media reported on Tuesday.
CNN broke the story, saying "multiple" anonymous officials present at the meeting had confirmed to the broadcaster that the president had been handed a two-page summary of the report during a briefing last Friday. The meeting was initially called to discuss the possible influence of Russian hackers on the election.

The news outlet said the information came from a former British MI6 agent who had been hired to research Trump, adding fuel to rumors about Russians blackmailing the president-elect that have been circulating since before the US election.
As to why no one had yet published the information although it had been on the radar for months, CNN wrote: "What has changed since then is that US intelligence agencies have now checked out the former British intelligence operative and his vast network throughout Europe and find him and his sources to be credible enough to include some of the information in the presentations."

David Corn, a reporter for left-wing magazine "Mother Jones" who had seen the allegations in October, responded on Twitter as to why he had declined to publish the report at that point. "I could not confirm the allegations," Corn wrote, though he did add that a "credible source had provided FBI allegations of Moscow op to co-opt Trump."
