Release of fake news by US intel agencies is a ‘disgrace’
At his first press conference since the presidential election, US President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday dismissed as "complete nonsense" the reports that Russian intelligence has embarrassing material about him. He accused US intelligence agencies of releasing the information and said it was an "absolute disgrace." Regarding his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he said "If Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset." He later announced that he was severing all ties with his businesses and transferring ownership to his sons, Eric and Don.
