Trump Throws Full-On Tantrum At BuzzFeed For Story Alleging Russia Has Dirt On Him (TWEET)

-

On Tuesday, BuzzFeed published an article that alleged that Russia had compromising information regarding President-elect Donald Trump. Other news sources, such as CNN, confirmed that Trump had been briefed on the fact that Russia may have attempted to compromise him. However, they did not release the documents, due to the fact that they contain details which are unverified.

Now, Trump has taken to Twitter to dispute the claims.

‘FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!’

‘BuzzFeed Runs Unverifiable Trump-Russia Claims’

For their part, BuzzFeed acknowledged that the details contained in the reports were unverified, but published anyway.

‘Here’s the note I sent to staff this evening’

‘Our presumption is to be transparent in our journalism and to share what we have with our readers. We have always erred on the side of publishing. In this case, the document was in wide circulation in the highest levels of American government and media.

‘…As we noted in our story, there is serious reason to doubt the allegations. We have been chasing specific claims in this document for weeks, and will continue to.’

We’ll have more on this story as it continues to develop.
