Donald Trump has rubbished fresh claims that Russian intelligence agencies have obtained personally compromising information about him. The allegations, which for the moment are said to remain unsubstantiated but highly embarrasing, relate to the President-elect’s political and personal dealings. Late on Tuesday, Trump took to tweeter, rejecting Moscow had dug up dirt, stating – Fake News – A Total Political Witch Hunt! FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2017 US intelligence agencies are reported to have presented a classified report about the material obtained by Russian agents to both Trump and the outgoing president, Barack Obama. That dossier is also said to include allegations of ongoing contact between Trump associates and the Kremlin and was attached to wider findings of alleged interference by Russia into the US election. On Tuesday, James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, spoke to the Senate’s Intelligence Committee. ‘‘We have high confidence that President Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election. The goals of this campaign were to undermine public faith int he US democratic process. Putin and the Russian government also developed a clear preference for President-elect (Donald) Trump. Russia aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances when possibly by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him.’‘ In recent weeks, Trump has faced pressure to concur with those claims by US intelligence that Moscow ordered its agents to hack into the Democratic Party’s emails in order to sway November’s election.
