Report: Trump Wasn't Given Summary of Russia's Efforts to Compromise Him
According to several reports, President-elect Donald Trump was shown classified documents during a meeting with U.S. intelligence officials last week that included allegations that Russian operatives have compromising information about him.
On "Special Report" tonight, John Roberts reported that a senior source on the Trump transition team said those reports are incorrect, and intelligence chiefs never handed Trump a written summary of unsubstantiated allegations that Russia was compiling information on the president-elect with which to blackmail him.
"It was allegedly given to him on Friday when he was briefed on Russian cyber-spying," Roberts reported.
CNN had previously reported that a two-page synopsis on Russian operatives' claim that they have compromising personal and financial information about Trump was appended to a report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Roberts noted that at a news conference today, Trump ripped the media's reporting on his ties to Russia.
He specifically called out CNN for their coverage of the story and then refused to answer a question from CNN reporter Jim Acosta, saying "You are fake news!"
