With just over a week until Inauguration Day, a new report exposed #Donald Trump and his alleged history of engaging in controversial sex acts. As expected, the president-elect was not happy about it.

Trump on Twitter

On Tuesday night, a bombshell story broke on CNN that revealed the details of the intelligence briefing given to Donald Trump and President Obama in regards to #Russia hacking the Democratic National Committee (DNC). When the story first broke, CNN reported that Russian operatives had "compromising" financial and personal information, and had planned to bribe Trump in the process. Not long after that first story broke, Buzzfeed examined the details further, which showed that Russia had details on Trump's sexual history, including paying for women to engage in "golden showers," which is the act of urinating on each other. On his #Twitter account on January 10, Trump fired back.

FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!," Donald Trump wrote in all caps on his Twitter account. Trump's comment comes just hours after his lawyer, Michael Cohen, labeled the CNN report "ridiculous" and a "fake story." The former host of "The Apprentice" then sent out a follow-up retweet from Cohen, who attached a picture of his password and wrote, "I have never been to Prague in my life." Cohen then added the hashtag "fakenews."

Donald Trump has long denied any wrongdoing with Russia, despite his constant praise of President Vladimir Putin. The press and his critics have long called for Trump to reveal his tax returns to disprove reports that have him linked back to the Kremlin, but the president-elect refuses to comply.

Moving forward

Even with the allegations against him, Donald Trump is less than two weeks away from being sworn in as the next commander in chief, with over 100,000 protesters planning to be in attendance. Regardless of the CNN report, or previous investigations from the CIA that concluded Russia hacked the DNC in his favor, Trump appears unwilling to accept that his election was impacted by a foreign country.
